Reunion Face Off - Floyd or Zep?

There is little question that two of the most stunning and unexpected reunions of the last few years were Zeppelin at O2 last year and Floyd at Live 8 a couple of years ago.

Stunning in that no one thought these reunions would ever happen, and that both bands performed well.

There is also a bit of mystique about these two one-off shows, because there wasn't a full tour following either reunion (despite promoters offering literally hundreds of millions of dollars to each band). Also, both bands have members who have all but said "That was it - I don't want to do it again." Leaving us all a bit...wanting.

So, which one was your fave? Floyd or Zep?

Here are two YouTubes to refresh your memory.
