I think he meant Waters-led Floyd and not Water-less Floyd!

If that's the case, I may have to stick his head down a toilet and flush it a few times to get rid of the wax between his ears.

EDIT: Nah, he's got to be talking about liking Waters-less Floyd less, not Waters-led Floyd less. He said he likes "every phase" except for...etc. Gilmour-led Floyd was only one phase.

Exactly! I love them both for their own strengths! Heck, why just Gilmour and Waters, I love all 4! Barrett's too cooky for me.

Zep was far from being a "big hair" band. The "hair bands" of the eighties like Motley Crue were a nasty subgenre of the whole Zep/Sabbath thing. Page and Plant hated that style of music. For every brutal Cinderella, Poison and Twisted Sister that can credit Zep as an influence, there's a Nirvana, Jane's Addiction and Stone Roses (in other words awesome bands) that were in some way influenced by Zep. (Nirvana did an awesome cover of Zep's Hearbreaker, and Dave Grohl is tatooed in Bonham stuff) Even U2 have gone on record as saying they were fans of them though they hated most hard rock.

Phew, for a minute there you were cruising for a bruising.

I agree with Zooters, though, they're all fantastic at what they do best. Waters as a singer and songwriter (maybe just a little as a bassist), Gilmour as a guitarist, Wright as a keyboardist, and Mason as a pie crust connoisseur. Barrett was also loveable in a rather crazy way (come on, who else could write songs like The Gnome and Bike?)

Gilmour is greater than Waters simply for Sorrow.

I'd take Gilmour as a singer over Waters, though...

personally speaking I think the best thing Led Zep. ever did was provide the music for the genius that is Rolf Harris to sing that old ditty, Stairway to Heaven, anybody agree?

Then why did Page collaborate with David Coverdale in 1992?

Gilmour > Waters for songwriting, singing, lead guitar, rythm guitar, bass guitar (yes, bass guitar), production, mixing, arranging

Waters > Gilmour for biting lyrics

Gilmour + Waters = Genius

Gilmour - Waters = Still Genius

Waters - Gilmour = ehhh, anyone else still listening to Radio KAOS or Pros & Cons? Didn't think so.

I love Pre-1985/Water Pink Floyd

I tolerate Post-1985/Gilmour Pink Floyd

Personal taste is quite the interesting thing.
