I’m sorry but I don’t feel that I can agree with most of what you just said here Jimmy page is the father of Led Zeppelin and their live shows were legendary. I’m not sure if I follow what you’re saying (but I do agree with you about Jason and Bonham and the rest of it possibly.)Zep with Bonzo never lived up to the sound of their studio albums. Page did multi-tracking for the albums so he always sounded thin. Plus, as his drug addiction worsened he was never up to the task. Their music is kinda like hard rock Beatles. Highly produced and difficult to replicate live. Page was by far the biggest liability in Zep. I'm not saying he wasn't great. He just made this hard on a 4 pc band live. Jones & Bonham almost always still sounded great. People never give JPJ enough credit. He really was a fantastic musician and a great bassist. Zep shouldn't have played the liveaid gig but they did. Their music is too hard to pull off in a jam setting. Even with rehearsal & Jason Bonham it's kinda ehh. That's why they were good. That had a thing you can't copy. Especially without Bonzo.
Led Zeppelin live was never about duplicating or replicating their studio albums—it was about carryping the energy of a very powerful band to the people—they sold out every show that they played and it was for good reason.
