Today is Jimmy Page‘s 76th birthday!

The legendary Led Zeppelin (and also member of The Yardbirds and Coverdale & Page) was born on this day in 1944.

Page is simply one of the most iconic guitarists in rock and roll history…and a major influencer on countless metal and hard rock acts.

He was ranked number three on Rolling Stone ‘s 100 “Greatest Guitarists Of All Time” list (only behind the equally legendary Jimi Hendrix at number one and Eric Clapton at number two).

Page has it all…an amazing capacity for solos, a talent for writing beyond-famous riffs, and an overall brilliant style.

To get us pumped up for Mr. Page’s birthday…let’s play some Zeppelin and rock the (bleep) out!!

And Happy Birthday, Jimmy!
