'Working Man' feels more like Rush doing a Led Zeppelin impression to me. The structure feels more like a Led Zeppelin II outtake and the riff sounds like something Jimmy Page wrote, but Tony Iommi played... if that makes sense.

Early Rush were often compared to Led Zeppelin, problem was though they just weren't as good as Led Zeppelin and hence the move into their more familiar prog direction.

I'd take Rush a hundred times over in comparison with Led Zeppelin.

When Neil Peart joined Rush, they more or less lead own way, with individual sound, style of progressive rock. Unlike the more Blues/Rock of Led Zeppelin.

You think the first couple of Rush albums compare to one of the classic Led Zep albums?

I'm surprised you didn't take this opportunity to mention Caress of Steel again.

I will mention Alex Lifeson. More often underrated in comparison to the popularity of Iommi and Page.

Not among guitar fans. Anyone who is a musician always says great things about him. Its everyone else that doesnt. Its because he doesnt fit the rockstar personality and look. Kind of sad really.

Lifeson is a very good guitarist.

I've been listening to sabbath all this morning. I think iommi owns page. He can play just as fast, if not faster. He had a great style. He played so many great, classic riffs. He is the king of the heavy riff. He was a pioneer, one of the first to drop his tuning down, which became a big part of heavy metal. You can hear some heavy palm muted riffs in some sabbath songs. Of course the palm muted riffing would become a signature part of heavy metal. I can't think of anyone that was doing that before him. Iommi all the way.
