I'm not doing to agree or disagree, just going to keep it mutual, because I do have to keep in mind that both guitarist are/were part of two of the most impressive rock bands in history, so it just depends on who you like more.

All I was really doing was answering your question as to why you were asking if this really needs to be a question.

I see what you're saying, my comment was meant to be taken tongue in cheek, haha. Things in text form don't always carry the appropriate tone. I would like to state I am a fan of Sabbath, as anybody who like good music should be, I just of course prefer Zeppelin, and Jimmy Page.

Definitely cool with me man. I'm a huge fan of both myself. I have full discographies of Sabbath and Zeppelin in my collection :)

Absolutely, I'm a massive Zep head, and collect a lot of bootlegs to go along with the official stuff. What Iommi was able to do, even after having his hand mangled is beyond me, His riffs are the heaviest ones in rock and roll, especially "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" at least to me anyway.

I actually created a blog about the life and music of Jimmy Page, the link is in my sig, you should check it out :)

Yeah, Black Sabbath were and still remain to be one of my favorite heavy metal bands. I still have yet to decide if I like them better with Ozzy or Dio. But the nice thing is that if I never choose, I still have a Rainbow live album on vinyl to get my Dio fix if Sabbath doesn't do it for me at the time.

It was such a shame when Dio passed. I got a question for ya...Iommi or Randy Rhoads?

Still gonna go with Iommi. I was just about to vote in the poll as well.

And yeah, definitely a shame about Dio. His voice was something else, packs a punch every time I listen to Sabbath and Rainbow.

I can say without a doubt, Page is better. Iommi is more influential, because Sabbath's heavy guitar sound is what inspired every metal band in the 80s. Ritchie Blackmore is on par with, if not better than both as far as first wave "metal" bands go. Blackmore and Page kick Iommi's ass in soloing, definitely.

I dont know about that. EVERY metal band on the planet sites Sabbath as one of or the main influences.

Well like I said, I was keeping a mutual opinion, though in this case I do agree with you and find that very easy to believe.
