I appreciate all of your opinions, so take it to the polls, start voting
Beatles and Stones are more influential than either, but of the two, it's sabbath, considering that there are a million metal bands out there right now trying to sound just like them.
Does anyone chart anymore? le sigh.
Led Zeppelin were a lot more influenced than Sabbath. Sabbath seems to be more original and less derivative of the blues.
Oh, who was more influential?
Zeppelin spawned more imitators like say, Aerosmith. Sabbath's formula was a little easier to interpret into something more of an original influence. The whole Sabbath power chord riff thing provided the formula for many a ne'er-do-well to pick up a guitar and write a song.
There would be no metal without Sabbath. There were plenty of white guy blues rockers before Zeppelin and plenty after though Zeppelin did influence those to come after. I vote for Sabbath.
Zeppelin definitely more influential,Sabbath was great and did alot for music but you listen to one Sabbath album and you've listened to them all..The diversity of Zeppelin is one of their best qualities.
