Is there any doubt that Black Sabbath is the answer?

I'll be the fence straddler on this one. I'm sorry, but I can't choose between these three greats! It's like choosing which one of your kids that you like the best.....I don't have kids, but if I did. You get my point!

Interestingly enough, there are eras that I like the best with two of the bands though, due to lineup changes.

I like Deep Purple's Coverdale days, and Black Sabbath's Dio and Tony Martin days the best. I like Slaves and Masters from DP with Joe Lynn Turner on vocals really well too!

If a person doesn't have much respect for Zepplin, then there's something wrong!

Sorry, but if you're gonna make me choose between Zeppelin, Sabbath and Purple....Even tho' all three are awesome and contributed heavily to the development of Hard Rock and Metal......I'm gonna have have to go with..........Led Zeppelin!

Even tho' I love all 3, I'm gonna have to go with Zeppelin cuz I think Jimmy Page is the shit...not just playing guitar but as a composer and producer as well.

No offense, just my own personal opinion

To me, Zeppelin was the ultimate-the chemistry that the four of them had is unmatched. They transcended genres and are true icons. You can't really pigeon hole them into any one specific category of music because they went beyond that, in my opinion.

Sabbath wasn't quite in the same realm as Zep (and that's not a bust on them), and to say that both bands were a major influence is an understatement. Sabbath played one way, and that was heavy. Zeppelin's music was both light AND dark. From a metal standpoint, yeah...Sabbath wins that one. But in every other way-ZEPPELIN. I agree with Deansolo-Page's guitar playing, arrangements, producing and his work in the studio are all widely acknowledged as the standard which others were measured.

One of the first albums I ever bought for myself was Physical Graffiti. 8)

Zep was more kinda' psychdelic rock, Sabbath on the heavy side.

I think I read somewhere that Iommi heard LZ and knew that
wasn't the direction Sabbath was taking. The rest is history :)

Let's see, you've got Deep Purple in one hand and Black Sabbath in the other. Smash 'em all together and what do you get? one hell of a mess. And then you hear Jon Lord keyboarding, and it's almost as if you can see the Hellion of Judas Priest's creation driving through the clouds all-the-while screaming as loud and hard as it can!!! I've never thought of Led Zeppelin as a band to be considered a Heavy Metal root band, as they've always been a Rock 'n Roll band, for me. Punk isn't rock, just as rock isn't punk. They are arbitrary opposites ( as compared with complimentary opposites); although, punk does well to remind one of the primitive and otherwise raw beginnings of Rock 'n Roll.
