No, no...the first Zep album was released in January (12th, to be exact)
1969, and the last Yardbirds tour in `68 already had Dazed And Confused
on the playlist (as I'm Confused)...with no Zep member present other
than Page. There was an (excellent) aborted live album of this tour, in
fact, which showed the direction Page was about to take with LZ.
Besides, Zep I was appropriately called "atomic Blues" by critics. A
large portion of the material wasn't even written by Page/Plant. Sabbath
didn't play Blues, but chord-driven Rock.
Now if you said Sabbath got their initial material from The Who...that I
could agree with.
