For the people who say Pink Floyd is better than Led Zeppelin,can PF sing "Since I've been loving you" like LZ?

Led Zeppelin can sing "Comfortably Numb" better than Pink Floyd. While I admit that "Comfortably Numb" has one of the best solos ever (and I'm a huge fan of David Gilmour), Jimmy Page has shown that he can put plenty of feelings in his solos as well (see "Since I've been loving you", as well as other songs). Robert Plant's vocals just blow everyone away, and tbh; the vocals in "Comfortably Numb" suck. The vocals of most Pink Floyd's are not even nearly as good as Led Zeppelin's.

    Um...you are comparing blues rock/hard rock with progressive rock/psychedelic rock. Are you trying to compare apples with oranges?

    I personally prefer Led Zeppelin to Pink Floyd but I disagree about the vocals. I think David Gilmour is a fine singer and he's sounding a lot better than Robert Plant is these days.

    no pink floyd cannot sing any led zeppelin song like led zeppelin can, nor can led zeppelin sing any pink floyd song like pink floyd can. just because the are from the same era does not mean that have the same kind of music. that is like trying to compare alice in chains to aerosmith.

    It's because nobody in Pink Floyd wore nut hugging pants.

    one guy says, Ahhh... but can Led Zeppelin write their own music, damm right, they wrote their own music, how many of today's bands can say that?
