Re: Jimmy Page?

Never really rated Page .. even though he apparently appeared on every other British pop single released between about 1960 and 1970, or something. Super sessioneer he may well have been, but I've always found his playing a bit workmanlike.

I'm not convinced that he's got a signature sound or his technique was particularly influential. And that trick with the violin bow I always thought was a bit embarrassing.

Tony Iommi, to my mind, was/is the most influential British guitarist ever.
