James Patrick "Jimmy" Page Celebrates His 69th Birthday!

James Patrick "Jimmy" Page, OBE was born on January 9, 1944 in the West London suburb of Heston, U.K. If for some bizarre reason you don't know who Jimmy Page is, Jimmy Page is one of the founders of legendary Rock N' Roll band Led Zeppelin. Some of the roles that Jimmy Page has adopted in the music business include: multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and record producer.

"When I grew up there weren't many other guitarists ... There was one other guitarist in my school who actually showed me the first chords that I learned, and I went on from there. I was bored so I taught myself the guitar from listening to records. So obviously it was a very personal thing." - Jimmy Page

Jimmy Page is widely considered one of the most influential guitarists and songwriters in Rock music history.

"The pontiff of power riffing & probably the most digitally sampled artist in pop today after James Brown." - Rolling Stone

In 2012, Jimmy Page was ranked No.1 in Gibson's list of "Top 50 Guitarists of All Time". He has also been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice; once as a member of The Yardbirds (1992), and once as a member of Led Zeppelin (1995).

Heavy birthday Jimmy Page, and MANY more to come! \m/
