Happy Birthday Jimmy Page

Jimmy Page was born in 1944 in Heston, England.  He's certainly one of the most influential rock guitarists of all time from his early session work and to his time in the Yardbirds and Led Zeppelin.  Here we focus on some of his rockabilly and blues influences:

"My Bucket's Got A Hole In It" (with Robert Plant)

Led Zeppelin- Elvis Medley

interview about It Might Get Loud documentary

Led Zeppelin- "Somethin' Else" (Eddie Cochran)

Dave Berry- "My Baby Left Me" (Jimmy Page on lead guitar)

Yardbirds- "Train Kept A Rollin'" (Tiny Bradshaw, Johnny Burnette Trio, etc)

Brenda Lee- "Is It True" (Jimmy on guitar)
