Led Zeppelin, definitely, there is a LOT of chemistry, musicianship, and all of that going on!

Ok Queen fans, I don't know if this topic has been presented before, but here goes.
What rock band do you think takes a close/distant second to Queen? Take into consideration chemistry, sound, and popularity.

Well any band is crap compared to QUEEN but if I had to choose a second it would be Led Zeppelin.

I'm going to say Billy Joel, cause he comes at a very close second. Tie, actually. He never considered himself a solo artist, sooo... :P
