I agree. He does exactly what his fans want to see. And as has been pointed out he and his bands have sold a lot of albums.. which means he has a lot of fans!

Lets not forget around 60% of people are primarily visual. They like to see things more than hear them. I imagine most non instrumentalists love the fact he is so animated.

Personally I don't love him, but I don't hate him either. I'd love to command his power on and off stage, as well as his money! :-P

Course, it's a good thing he gets free cymbals......

Great reply. How many people say "I'm going to hear a concert" as opposed to "I'm going to see a concert"? Back in Shakespeare's day, nobody went to watch a play, they went to hear a play. People want to be visually entertained these days. If you're the band delivering that show you want the people in back to have just as good an experience as the people in the front, so you use really big gestures. Vaudeville and stage acting come to mind. It's all in who the fan base (demographic) is and what they want. Someone going to a James Taylor concert isn't going to appreciate a highly animated drummer (not saying that Gadd doesn't make some of the best drummer faces) and someone going to a Korn concert isn't going to want to see a bunch of dudes sitting on stools for an entire set.

im sorry but if a band cant do what they did in the studio on stage. then thats sad. and they used a 24 and a 32 track recording to over dubb about every thing they did. cuz page couldnt play lead and solo at the same time.

no im not kidding. and there not one of the best bands. you only hear that cuz there pushed by a big company with alot of money and power and can dictate weather you know what is good music and what isnt. just like the beatles they were pushed and pushed and pushed by a huge company.

and zep is the king of over dubbing there music so there talent lies in cuting and pasting songs togather.

there is a question here. what is music or what is muzak. what is made for people with no realy grasp of what is really going on. also if you didnt know jimmy was trying to get big in the occult world to gain powers so he can play better as with his band. and if you know about the occult you might want to rethink about led zep being the best band,
