JIMMY PAGE – ON THE OCCASION OF HIS BIRTHDAY

9 January 2011 6,890 views 24 Comments

Jimmy Page is 67 today.

In a career that has spanned six decades, he has written the rule book on the art of rock guitar. From monolithic riffing to blistering solos. From acoustic beauty to vast instrumental guitar orchestration. Eastern tunings, Blues, 50s rock’n’roll psychedelic and full on riffs – his catalogue mirrors all those styles and much more.

He remains the true lord of the strings.  We think it won’t be too long before he is out there proving that fact once again.

Here’s a round up of clips that vividly illustrate his unique genius. Watch and be amazed…again.

Happy birthday Jimmy from us to you…

    Dearest Jimmy,

    Happy belated birthday Dr. Page! It is so wonderful to see you’ve made it through all of the craziness we called the 70s not to mention the 80s!

    We’ve been out of touch for too long, give a call next time you’re on this side of the pond, that is if you haven’t lost my number!

    Dearest Mr. Page.

    Thank you ever so much for all that you do for the children here in Brazil. Without you behind us so many more children would needlessly suffer. You truly do more than you will ever know through your personal contributions and ties to the masses. You are a gentleman, a saint and a lifesaver to those who need it most!
