A huge influence to many great musicians, Jimmy Page has become one of the most recognized guitarists. His years were spent with the English blues group Yardbirds, along with other big named musicians Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck. He was also a member of former heavy metal pioneers Led Zeppelin that have become one of the best-selling groups. Led Zeppelin along with Van Halen, Aerosmith, and Kiss, popularized heavy metal and rock that has been a foundation in music for over 40 years. “Stairway to Heaven” carries the best solo that Page created to make Zeppelin popular in mainstream culture. The group has gone on to influence groups like the Ramones, Nirvana, Dream Theater, Symphony X, Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, Pantera, etc. Page definitely belongs in the list of top 10 guitarists along with other great ones, especially Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Van Halen, Dimebag Darrell, Clapton, and many others. Happy belated birthday to Page by the way and check out “Stairway to Heaven” below.
