They both have their merits. Actually they are very different in so many respects. But both are legends in the world of rock and roll.

If you take Mr Pages guitar playing out of context - particularly in a live setting it is a bit sloppy - even crappy...

His genius was (and is) in that he is able to create his own context -

Out of thin air and magick hats.... :)

Jeff Beck recorded Hi Ho silver lining.

(mind you Bowie recorded the laughing gnome)

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

In my opinion.


Couldn't agree more.Page's solos are beautifuly crafted,and his studio work is class.Ok maybe live he was sloppy,only cos he wasn't scared to make a mistake ,by playing out of his comfort zone.He tried to make every concert a unique event for each listener.
Truly great man.

I couldn't hear clapton or Beck even attempting solo in "since i've been lovin' you",and neither would ever have been able to dream it up.....and he did it 1st take.

I could play "Stairway To Heaven" on the guitar when I was 14. Jimmy Page didn't write it until he was 28. I think that says a lot.

Could you play solo in "since i've been lovin' you " Nope!,bet you still can't. and by the way,stairway isn't meant to be difficult,but it stands the test of time,it's not the playing it,it's dreaming it up in the 1st place.

err - think I should have included this link -

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0544862/quotes

I have to admit I am unfamiliar with the solo of which you speak - however if its got more than three notes in then its probably beyond me as you so rightly assume :)

Having said that theres a bunch of stuff that I do that Jimmy Page wouldnt have a hope with -

The Rubiks Cube for one thing.....

+ I can hammer a 6 inch nail into my right nostril -

(that may explain quite a lot actually)

I'm in awe of quite a few musicians of ALL styles and genres, but I've never known anyone to have such a myopic crush on one guy before...Living vicariously through someone can be ok to a point, but it can become unhealthy... [-X

I say,steady on stettoman.It's not unhealthy to admire talent,i like lots of musicians.I play guitar very well,i can play anything clapton ever played.I admire malmsteem and m/d'a/battio,for their technical skill,but soon get bored with it.All am saying is page had the lot,and as a player i rate him highest of all,.more interesting than brian may.

Malmsteen asked me to play bass for him long, long ago...I think it was in '88 or '89...It's a long story, but I wound up telling him no thanks...Years later my wife's best friend started dating him... :o

BTW Mikky, I got no argument with Page's talent, just his lazy approach onstage--Seen him three times, was twice more than necessary...

Fair enough stettoman.I saw page 3 times too funnily enough,even with my rose tinted glasses on,i was never let down.Where did you see him.Me knebworth 79',and couple of times in glasgow with plant.
fair to say maybe he aint at the height of his powers now.Maybe you got him on a bad night ,or 3 bad nights.
As have said on other post,maybe what you see as lazy,is laid-backness.I saw him play 4hrs knebworth,he was never lazy.
