no way; entwistle was great and derserves special recognition because he had the first bass solo in rock with "my generation", but jones is the better bass player; he also played guitar, mandolin, piano, organ, synth, and wrote and arranged.

Led Zeppelin is the greatest ROCK band to ever have lived. What I mean by that is very simple. No one ever matched their sheer balls-out blues rock n' roll intensity and just capture the true essense of hard rock and rock and roll in general. They weren't the best song writers, and they weren't the most original band ever, but god dammit they were good. They were the best.

aw cmon john entwistle is the greatest bass player of all time(and this has nothing to do with all the other instruments john paul jones can play)

not only is the bass solo in my generation great but look at his bass in the quadrophenia era

-the real me
-5:15 is also pretty good bass playing(especialy ont hat royal albert hall concert)

and just because you dont really care for the rock operas doesnt mean there wasn't some good song writing in them

I still do, to some extent. But good music is good music, and they have quite a fair bit.
Led Zeppelin exemplifies that sheer sweaty, ballsy, apocolyptic out of control freight train sound that is pure rock and roll. There will never be another like them and they are up there with The Who, Queen, U2 (give em another 20 years), and the Stones. Of course they're all on the floor below the penthouse suite which always goes to the fab four.

Led Zeppelin is perhaps the greatest classic rock and roll band ever, but what set them apart from others in the genre is how their music would break off into different tangents, displaying a talent that has rarely been matched. To go from Led Zeppelin II to III and then to Zoso is just incredible. III was just so far ahead of its time, before everybody else had to do the "acoustic" thing. And no other rock and roll band was into the blues like they were.

nope; jpj is the better bassist imo. I think entwistle has more clout, but jpj has always been criminally underrated.

check these tunes out:

good times bad times
the lemon song
what is and what should never be
ramble on
immingrant song
the crunge
achilles last stand
black dog (a riff he wrote)

I realized today that there is flanger on the whole drum set for "kashmir"; they bring it up and down during the song.

brilliant.
