Jeff Matthews Posted February 16, 2006 Share Posted February 16, 2006 After 25 years of listening to mostly classic rock, I think today I am ready to make my final conclusion as to who is the all-time greatest guitarist.... Drum roll............. ............................................ Jimmy Paige! What he is NOT: He is not the most technically adept, fastest, mistake-free player. What he IS: The most ingenuitive, creative, musical genious of a guitarist there ever was. I am "wowed" every time I put on old Zep tunes and listen to the many different "roles" he fills. Yes, he had to dub, but his "magic" is he had to think of all those "roles," and he balled them up in one, magical, harmonious tune. Tune-after-tune. Unlike so many other greats, look at what he did. Zep 1 is not Zep 2, is not Zep 3, is not Zep 4, is not Physical Graffiti - you get the idea. He is a true legend. Okay. Who's your favorite - only 1 per person, please.
