What actually is the question? Which is the better band? Which do I prefer? Which of them crucified Cliff Richard? Before I can vote, I need to know what I'm voting for.

All of the above. Kidding.

Better in what respect? Musical ability? Live performance? Song-writing?

the who (for me).. led-zep are a bit too prog-rock, the who were exciting, dynamic, (still) fresh-sounding, melodic

i`ve seen them around 7 or 8 times, twice when keith moon was drumming with them (however they were never the same once he died it took the energy and drive away)

guitarist - Jimmy Page
vocalist - equal
drummer - equal
bassist - John Entwhistle
song-writing - Pete Townsend
record production - Pete Townsend
live - equal

On paper, The Who should be better.

But it's not really fair to compare them anyway. The Who were a pop/rock band, Zep were a progrock band.

That's another question I can't really answer. I like bands from both, and which I prefer depends largely on my mood at any given time.

You-whooo, I'm back! Can you guess which I like best? The Who! but I was a bit of a MOD chick when it all came back in the late 70's/80's.

Hope it don't get "Dazed and Confused" trying to find out which member of the Who is the Doctor.  ;)

Didn't Led Zepplin get their name from a comment made by Keith Moon?

One account of the band's naming, which has become almost legendary, has it that Keith Moon and John Entwistle suggested that a possible supergroup containing themselves, Jimmy Page, and Jeff Beck would go down like a lead zeppelin, a term Entwistle used to describe a bad gig. The group deliberately dropped the 'a' in Lead at the suggestion of their manager, Peter Grant, to prevent "thick Americans" from pronouncing it as "leed".
