I listed to Zeppelin and I find a complex and wide depth of feel and culture.

How well did any of the members know composition and or theory?

Jimmy didn't need to know any theory. He is for me no.1 player of all times, maybe even bigger face than Hendrix (which also didn't know any theory). Jimmy plays and composes what sounds good to him. Of course it is good if you know some theory but it worked for him without it. He surely does know which scale to play over which chord but might not know to name that scale. His solos are mainly based on licks but his rhythm structure and chords in different tunings sound like a true art. My ex. jazz teacher Shaun Baxter (maybe one of the best in the world) interviewed Van Halen for some guitar magazine. He told us that Halen doesn't have a clue of what he is playing. For Jimmy it doesn't surprise me but for Mr. Halen it does. All his notes are just what he hears, no way he could tell you which scale, which box etc... The thing here is that you can still play good without any theory but knowing it will only do you even better.
