Mainly due to their bass playing. But if you can't decide between either, than you can use their other musician qualities as a tie breaker.

I voted for JPJ and ITTOD is a good album. I definitely prefer zep to the who and both have done lots to contribute to music. But if you want to talk about a talented bassist only one name comes to my mind and that's Geddy Lee of Rush.

Actually many names come to mind which I will not start listing.

And good call on the lemon song. I have played in many bands with many bass players and few want to tackle that beast.

Personally, the most difficult Zeppelin bass lick to cover, by a MILE, is the chorus of The Immigrant Song. He plays seven full major scales in about as many seconds. It is a BITCH in the EXTREME to play.

I can see that, even though I've never touched a bass (I'm looking to buy a cheap one soon though). I love the bass from "The Lemon Song", though. Cool bass throughout the song.

Yeah, no singer really wants to touch that one either.
