On refdesk.com, today's birthday is Jimmy Page.

http://refdesk.com/

"James Patrick "Jimmy" Page, OBE (born January 9, 1944) is an English guitarist and producer. He was the founding member of English rock band Led Zeppelin. Prior to that Page was a member of The Yardbirds from late 1966 to 1968. Page began his career as a studio session guitarist.

Noted guitar historian Robert Lynch made this comment about Jimmy Page: "In the relatively short history of the electric guitar in rock music, there have been few who can be labeled as 'Iconic'. Mr. Page is one of those select few. His eclectic stylings, his compositional prowess, his studio mastery and innovation, and his stage presentation were all areas where he excelled like no other and foreshadowed many who have followed in his wake."

In 2003, Rolling Stone magazine ranked him #9 in "The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time"

Happy Birthday, Mr. Page!

Happy B-Day Jimmy! I just purchased his "Outrider" cd a couple of weeks ago. I had heard some bad reviews back when it was released so I never purchased it when it came out. I think it is pretty good. I'm now debating on purchasing the Coverdale/Page disc. I haven't heard it before but I remember it got some mixed reviews also.

I didn't realize that Page made #9 on the Rolling Stone top guitar players list. Glad to see he's in the top 10, well deserved I say. I've had Led Zep III in the CD player all this week and it ain't comin' out soon.............what Jimmy does both acoustic and electric on that record is really stunning. Maybe the prettiest guitar playing of his career on that disc. Rollingcrowe: I have Coverdale/Page. There are a few good parts on it, which sound very Zeppelinesque............closer maybe to the acoustic/Indian stuff Page/Plant did in one of their reunions. Overall not what I could call a real strong disc, though, which explains the mixed reviews. Coverdale does do some nice singing on it I must say. I need to play it again to pass further judgment.

Happy Birthday Jimmy !!!!! Thanks for the great music...

Still think Jimmy had about the greatest tone when playing acoustic....not sure if it was what he was playing or how it was recorded plus touch ...probably a combo of all and then some.

Queen hosts pop star bash at Buckingham Palace

Queen Elizabeth II had a crash course in rock and pop music when she hosted a reception at Buckingham Palace for hundreds of stars from Eric Clapton to Geri Halliwell.

Introduced to four guitar masters -- Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton and Brian May -- at the reception for Britain's music industry her majesty asked: "And what do you do?"

May, from the rock band Queen, reminded the queen that he had played the National Anthem on the palace roof to start a concert marking her 2002 Golden Jubilee.

"Oh! That was you was it?" Elizabeth II exclaimed.

Moving on to Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page, the queen inquired: "Are you a guitarist too?"

Guitar god Eric Clapton took no chances and, firmly shaking her hand, introduced himself by name.

"Have you been playing a long time?" the queen asked.

"It must be 45 years now," replied Clapton, 59.

Happy Birthday Jimmy....was fortunate enough to see them in '70 before Led Zep III was released. They played pretty much the entire album...what a treat all this new and unheard music.....They did 3 encores!!
