I used to think that about Plant (I got into them because of Page, Bohnam and Jones), but after a while it's really grown on me. For as main stream as some of their stuff has become (most of IV and parts of II), I still contend they're an acquired taste for the large part. Don't get me wrong though, Floyd is definitely top 2-3 in my book.

True, but that hasn't stopped some bands from continuing to hang on (Skynard comes to mind for me).
This point is why I hold a grudge against Aerosmith and Metallica. Each should have packed it in a long time ago.
I'm the same way. For me it also takes away from what they did while at the top of their careers.
