one minute they adore pearl jam, the next U2, now they have a zepplin fascination as can be seen by this quote and their blaten rip-off of cashmere[sic?] in their latest song.

Yes but U2 isn't on tour right now so we're resorting to whatever pleases our primitive instincts.

I'm sorry but whoever said Led Zeppelin "sucked most of the time" needs to "go away" and think really hard about what they just said. Zeppelin was one of the most influential bands of all time. Still is. They inspired a lot of the bands that U2 were influenced by. So without Led Zeppelin there would be no U2. And without U2...who knows. You tell me.

You said it!
Besides, I like Creed. Don't have any of their CDs, but they're my fave band that I don't have any CDs of!

Sounds like something Bono might've said, actually.

That was me, and I stand by my OPINION. I don't need to go away just because you disagree with me. Influential doesn't always mean good. I grew up listening to them, and bought a record or two. I find them overblown and overdone most of the time. We can disagree with resorting to personal insults.

It seems that Stapp is trying to imitate Bono and U2 so much. He says things he knows would irk people. Stapp also has this smug about him that Bono claims he's good at. He even likes Led Zeppelin (a band U2 claimes had an influence on them) and now claims the same things happening to Led, happening to his band, Creed.

Clearly, Stapp adores U2. He's trying to achieve what our favorite band has done. He's trying so hard, he forgot to throw in some HUMILITY. And that's one of the major differences between him and Bono. Stapp should keep that in mind if he wants Creed to have the same longevity and success that U2 has, or any of the great bands had.

I used to get annoyed with Stapp's remarks. Now, however, he's trying too hard, it's funny.

Whoooooooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!

I was not intending to "insult" Martha. She just made a very general statement about Led Zeppelin that I whole-heartily disagree with, thats all. Martha: You don't like Led Zep, thats fine. But please don't make a general statement about them.

Also, I don't want you to "go away" completely. I just wanted you to reflect on the statement...and why you don't like Led Zeppelin.

Basstrap, it's not just you. I noticed the Cashmere rip-off too.

I wonder how Led Zeppelin feels about Creed's remarks.

P.S. Stapp sucks.

Not a Zep fan at all but it's undeniable that their supreme musicianship and immense popularity with younger bands and musicians made them one of the most influential bands of all time. Neither of which applies to that third rate Eddie Vedder impersonater Scott Stapp.

Maybe this thread is running out of steam, but I just want to say I totally agree with Martha about Led Zep. They did suck most of the time, imo. I can't stand Creed, but Led Zep was also derivative which is why critics (and a few bluesmen) disliked them. But I guess they paid the price when they were forced to ante up to Willie Dixon for ripping him off without giving him due credit.
