Prodical Man and Dazed and Confused

Before Ted Nugent went solo he was in the band, The Amboy Dukes.  I believe that this band is best known for their songs, "Journey to the Center of the Mind"and "Baby Please Don't Go".  However, they have some other great songs.  One of these songs is "Prodigal Man".  "Prodigal Man" is off their 1968 album, Migration.  In particular listen to the guitar solo in 3:42-4:53.  By the way there is a longer version of this which contains an additional 3 minutes of classic rock. 

Now, listen to Led Zeppelin's "Dazed and Confused".  Listen to 3:30-4:50.  Doesn't it sound very similar to 3:42-4:53 of "Prodigal Man"? 

Is it just me or did the Amboy Dukes do some of "Dazed and Confused" before Led Zeppelin?

  1. Dang, Youtube, the Dazed and Confused video has been dropped. Anyways, play your own copy of Dazed and Confused and do the comparison and if you don't have your own copy, you probably should get one, today.
