@Geo B Two original songs on their debut record.. the rest were covers. Covering other songs is fine. But not giving writing credits to the original musician? Plagiarism. Zeppelin was forced to pay royalties after virtually every album. A whole lot of love and Dazed and confused are cover songs. Wow.. what an “influential” cover band. Lol.

I saw Jimmy on a solo tour in the 1990's (iirc), and at one point he sat down just doing a rambling (ha!) instrumental. He'd go off in some random direction, and then drop into a riff from Led Zep song. He wouldn't do more then maybe six to eight notes for any one riff, but every time he did one the whole crowd would roar with recognition of the riff.

One of the all time riff kings. I was maybe 11 and my father sat me down in front of the green doored credenza where he had his vinyl and stereo. Prior to that day I never had any interest in it. We sat on the floor and he gave me my musical education that day…selecting albums he had bought over the years. Albums that ignited a fire inside me that never left. The first album he played fir me was the first Led Zeppelin release. That was it for me. I still see the room, can smell the album covers, feel the texture of the credenza and hear the crackle of the phonograph needle. My father just passed and it’s left a hole inside of me. But that day is hands down the best memory I have with him. I’ll be traveling to Florida soon to retrieve these albums, of which he left to me. I plan to find a similar credenza, stereo system and sit on the floor and revisit that day. Rest easy dad. Love you.

Personally my favorite band of all time, but let's not forget that Time is a continuum and Led Zeppelin HEAVILY stood on the shoulders of music greats (especially Elvis + blues greats) that came before them and influenced them. Pretty much like ALL musicians. That said, the musicianship, technical execution, and musical creativity of EVERY member of the band was (and probably still is) unrivaled! They definitely all descended from the tops of mount Olympus to grace us mere mortals with their talents!

@First context matters, these guys were pioneers who have been credited as the start of what would eventually be known as Heavy Metal (with Black Sabbath). Robert Plant is recognised along w/ Mick Jagger as quintessential Rock front men, and bands like Zeppelin, Sabbath and the Beatles brought blues and soul over the Atlantic back to the US where those styles originated, The US didn't really recognise those genres until the British invasion brought it back to them (They grew up near coastal towns in England so were exposed to that music from the sailors who brought the music to the UK).... Even if you don't care for their music, those early British bands are what turned Rock into blues/soul tinged music you hear even today.

Where is Achilles Last Stand. Since I've been loving you. The song Remains the Same. The Rain Song. Dazed and Confused? In the Evening. In My Time of Dying. Battle of Evermore. How Many More Times. Your skipping some of the best songs and riffs that have been copied over and over. I get you can't give them to much praise because of the whole stigma, but when the best of the best that has played in the same industry bows down to them, that's all the recognition that is needed by us who actually have the ear but not only the ear we have the third eye to see what is truly the Hammer of The Gods. So mysterious, so magical, so transcending, it's a question that sounds them that no person past or present can truly answer. That's the wonder of Led Zeppelin!

Without doubt, it is the most incredible, emotional, lush piece of music ever. What really saddens me is that at the ARMS concert, the only time the 3 greatest have ever been on stage together, they didn't play Ten Years, Paul Rodgers could've done the vocals. Guess Clapton didn't want Layla upstaged!
PD Anos atrás
I think the second most amazing thing about Ten Years Gone is that Jimmy & JPJ worked out music that beautiful to begin with. Imagine being a singer and being handed that piece of music to write lyrics for and sing over without ruining it. And that's the most amazing thing about that song, that Plant actually managed to do it. If I were trying to be a rock band in the 70s and I had to compete with that, I'd just say F it and start punk too.

@Guitar Ninja ZiPolishHammer basically just answered that question. The average led Zeppelin fan doesn't know the song. You are right that everyone that has heard of it, likes it.

Led Zep is an amazing band period, but it's when you hear it broken down like this that you realize just how talented Page is and how innovative, especially for his time. It's amazing to hear the variety too. So often groups, especially rock groups, create a very specific sound and once it works, just stick with it. LZ's songs had a distinctive flair, but each song was definitely unique. My all-time favorite song by them is When The Levee Breaks, for many reasons. The beat, Plant's vocals, the song is just *chef's kiss*

No doubt the wide variety of material that Page was exposed to as a session guitarist gave him a broad experience and encyclopedia of musical genres to draw on for inspiration.

@TorToroPorco: My favorite Page sessions story was him playing when Shirley Bassey recorded "Goldfinger". He said she held a note so long at the end she passed out and collapsed to the floor. Her being so dramatic to begin with just added to it.

Yes, he was drawing on world music, not just the blues

I recall reading in one of the guitar rags that Nuno Betancourt was asked what his first thought was when he learned that Extreme were going to open for Coverdale Page. He said that he wanted to ask Pagey why he had to go and write every single rock riff and not leave any for everyone else.

All in all, we need to say that Jimmy Page created the best, the most important, the most imaginative guitar riffs in the history of rock music. Anyway, I'm missing Rock and Roll?

Of the songs on albums considered “the good ones,” Ten Years Gone is under appreciated but In The Light is slept on even more. Insanely heavy.

I was hoping to see the In the Light riff, too. The only thing overshadowing it is JPJ's keyboard work. But the riff is so so heavy, love it!

In The Light is such a great tune. Heard it on the radio as a kid that didn't know anything about music and it haunted me for years (the exotic, droning intro followed by that crushing riff). This was pre-BRvid, pre-Shazam and I had no idea who wrote it or how to track it down. Was so pumped when I got deeper in to Led Zeppelin years later as a teenager, bought Physical Graffiti, and finally found it again as I made my way through that second disc.

Yeah, to me, both those songs are probably top 5 best Zeppelin songs, stairway is iconic, but ten years gone and in the light are kashmir epic level

The intro to Celebration Day is another great riff and when Jimmy first plays on In the Light.

Great stuff, Rick. Your playing and your taste is impeccable. I would have included 'Dazed and Confused' but its a good top 10. Jimmy Page!

Can't leave out Rock n Roll! That's the best riff ever for any band! blues and rock!

Jimmy Page could be pretty crude onstage when he'd been awake for 5 days straight and loaded on Jack and Smack but my God he could move you with his playing at times. The notes he chose were always perfect , even if they weren't always perfectly executed some nights. But look at the life he was living. He's one of the few actual geniuses in rock. The second solo in Ten Yrs Gone is to me the most brilliant, emotionally charged solo in rock history . (2 minutes and 30 seconds in, for those who are curious). Nobody could capture the mood of a song with a solo like Jimmy Page

Jack and Smack. Don't forget the Coke. Otherwise, you wouldn't be able to stay up that long. Ha ha ha!!!

I agree Page was great but not the only guitarist to capture the mood of a song in his solo. Check out Michael Schenker with UFO he's an equal in my mind.

I agree, except that the second solo from comfortably numb is the greatest solo of all time. But Ten years gone is a better song all around
Christopher Mitchell
I've played that live so many times I luv it, I play the knebworth version on the W.O.F. I always waited for someone to recognise it but everything U said its true

Jimmy was often so wasted that a lot of his live solos sucked. All out of key and way, way, way out of time. It was only because Bonham and Jones were able to hold the bottom that Page was able to pull through. But other than that, Page was incredible.

All amazing. Page is a guitar riff legend. I probably would have put them in a different order, and you could probably have done a top 20, but excellently done.

When I first heard Whole Lotta Love in 1969 I was in a military cafeteria in Atsugi Japan where my Dad was stationed. My "Jr" group was already playing Hey Joe by Jimi and other things attainable to 5th graders. I just looked up and tuned in to the music coming over the cafeteria radio....then saw that EVERYONE was just slack jawed listening to that new sound. What a ride it still is.
