James Patrick Page, OBE born in Heston, England in the 1940's. Lived near Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck. He first was a session player, then joined small bands, then joined Chris Dreja's band The Yardbirds, with Eric Clapton then adding Jeff Beck. After The Yardbirds ended, he found a new project called "The New Yardbirds," consisting of Robert Plant, John Baldwin (a.k.a. John Paul Jones), and John Bonham. They later renamed themselves to Lead Zeppelin, then to Led Zeppelin, thinking we americans might mispronounce it as (lee-d).

In Led Zeppelin, he became one of the greatest guitarists ever, if not the, and in an interview with William S. Burroughs helped define this new hard blues-rock as "Heavy Metal." His famous "Zoso" symbol, consisting his astrological sign the Capricorn, and his religion O.T.O. (Ordo Templis Orientis), is famous with him.

Trademark guitars include: Sunburst Gibson Les Paul 1959, Gibson EDS-1275, the Dragon-theme Fender Telecaster, and the Danelectro guitar.

After the end of Led Zeppelin, he composed the soundtrack to Death Wish II, and later in 2001 used the theme of "Kashmir" for Sean "Diddy" Combs.

He also recieved the Officer of the British Empire (OBE) order by the Queen for his work in Brazil for homeless children. He was made an honorary citizenship of Rio de Janeiro.

His daughter, Scarlet Page, is a photographer for many Pop-Culture magazines.

A person too divine for definition.

An individual who, in the beginning, saw the universe in all of its splendor, absorbed the knowledge and wisdom into his infinitely powerful being, and acheived a state of ultimate undestanding. He then proceeded to pick up a guitar and play. With his first notes he created the Earth and sky. With his first dyads he created fire and light. And with a mighty A7 chord, he created Man. These acts were followed by joining the Yardbirds, followed by the greatest classic rock band of all time-Led Zeppelin.

Jimmy Page is the best guitarist ever, despite ripping off music from other blues men like Muddy Waters. He could play all good styles of music and was amazing live. And why the hell does the first definition say he played originally for Zeppelin? He was originally a session guitarist, then he went on to play for the Yardbirds, following in the footsteps of Eric Clapton, and his childhood friend, Jeff Beck.
Jimmy Page is one of the most creative guitarists of all time.
