he is a sloppy guitarist but he's good at the same time.
he may or may not be a devil worshipper.
like a lot of people, he plays better sitting down.

I know a guy that owns a guitar shop in NJ. One day an obviously sloshed Jimmy Page showed up. The guy was torn between being thrilled about having Jimmy Page in his shop and worrying about having to throw him out for fear of knocking his nice guitars all over. :shock:

Sloppy is part of Jimmy's style. He does sloppy very well......he also does feel very well and writes very well and......

Well he certainly had/has a more than average interest in Thelema and Crowley - which was/is pretty far removed from satanism -

its funny - watching him play - it shouldnt work but it does seem to...

I can't comment on Page as I've never paid much attention to him. However, I sure hate playing electric guitar sitting down.

Thats interesting Geno - I seem to remember from the Zep bio that Jimmy was the uber session muso who eclipsed Beck in the yardbirds - but that is only one source :)

other than hi ho silver lining I havent heard much of Mr Beck - whats a good album to have a listen to?

Cheers

Richard

Jimmy might have eclipsed Beck in the Yardbirds but they are night and day apart now IMO.

May I suggest his classics as Blow By Blow , Jeff Beck - Wired , Jeff Beck - Beckology , Beck- Ola and last but not least his dinosaur album with rod stewart , Truth .Umm also his OFFICIAL BOOTLEG USA ‘O6 - CD ain't no slouch either.

If you wanna hear jeff get way out there then go Jeff Beck With The Jan Hammer Group Live

Beck is not good enough to be Jimmy's guitar tech.

In my opinion.

Beck might be a better trickery/stuntist - but Mr Page can lay claim to a load of the greatest songs ever written.

Something Mr Beck wont ever manage.

Either way - both amazingly talented musicians and as Mark E. Smith famously opined: "It's not a fucking competition."

Keith Richards said: "There's too much of the rock and not enough of the roll."

He most certainly wasn't referring to Page 8)

wow, Jimmy vs. Jeff, Beck vs. Page. Let's not forget another alumnus of the Yardbirds, Mr. Slowhand, Mr. Clapton?

Now, compare and contrast the three of them.

I think Jimmy Page's legacy is as producer/shaper of the Led Zeppelin canon.

Both certainly had a major impact on rock music and guitar playing...

Although I think both were top notch, neither would be in my top ten...but that's another thread...

Don't know if I would consider Page to be the...

But you can blame Stairway on him... :P ...one of his lesser efforts...I'll take Jimmy's acoustic numbers over his electric noodling anyday...

Bonham, Page & Jones were incendiary. It was the trilling blonde skwawking machine who irked me.

I love Stairway to Heaven :D

My top ten guitarists must number about 200 by now I'd think. Keef being the greatest of them all 8)

for pure listening to guitar pleasure - of the 3 yardies i'd have to opt for jeffie.
clappie shot his sheaf with cream.
pagies' songs are the most memorable.
but jeffie out-classes them all.
tone, technique, chops - all of it.

I'm going to have to agree that Beck BURY'S page as far as technical wizardry and chops. Beck, even today, can keep up with the outdated shredmeisters.
One thing about Page is his innovation, something beck can't hold a candle to, in my opinion. Recording tricks, production, riff stealing..all in Page's favor :lol:
As far as Clapton is concerned...jeez louise papa cheese!
Booooring...zzzzzz
Cream was definetely his fat wad.

Yyyyyeahhh...

I know it's easy to dismiss Clapton, but don't judge him on the basis of what's on the radio (if you only went by airplay, Jeff Beck would just be a side-man for Rod Stewart). For instance, from Slowhand, they never play what I think is his best guitar work on that album, "The Core"
