Agreed.  At their peaks (around the same time - woulda been a great time to see both

dynamic, deep in roots and background, and of the standard power trio w/ separate vocalist format.
Whereas Zep was into blues and went from there (quite far I might add), the Who started with
R&B and went way out from there... though in 76 all their encore jams were called such and such
