    I love Jimi and he was an amazingly talented musician and player but he was kind of a one trick pony compared to Page. If you have listened to everything Zeppelin did and everything Hendrix did and know them both inside out and love them both to death then you can tell that Zeppelin/Page were the more creative, innovative, genius, and rule-breaking musical force.

    I would have to choose jimi over jimmy. of course it's unfair to make the comparison because Hendrix only put out three studio albums in his lifetime. if you compare those albums to zep 1-3 I think you would have to say Hendrix is the greater guitarist. page went on to create some great music after those first few albums, but just imagine what Hendrix would have done. what's interesting is that you can make a direct comparison between jimi's version of 'killing floor' and Zep's Lemon Song. both great, but I prefer jimi's cover-it's fast and loose, whereas Zep's is fast and 'heavy'.

    Both Hendrix and Page are huge influences and heroes of mine.
    But if I had to decide which one was the best, I'd say Page.
    Not only was he more versatile and skilled than Hendrix, but he didn't have to over do things to make them look/sound good. Yeah Hendrix was talented beyond belief, but talent can only take you so far if you don't use it to your full advantage. If Hendrix wasn't cut short, then maybe things would be different, but at the end of the day, I can name more than 20 different masterpieces composed by Page... and name only a handful for Hendrix. Still love both tho.

    I think for most of my life I would have picked Hendrix because of his innovation and there is nothing quite like a screaming strat being tortured. However Page was more well rounded, he could play great leads, had fantastic rhythms, bowed the guitar, inspired finger tapping that Eddie Van Halen improved upon, Listen to the near 30 min version of dazed and confused currently available on you tube, Page bombs you with sounds just as scinitillating as anything Hendrix did. So nowadays I pick Page, but its close.

    Hendrix is good but overated just because he died they commericalized him. Jimmy Page never went for that crap and wrote better riffs, songs, solos and made a better band! Led Zeppelin was his baby! John Bonham's sound was Page's sound for the drums but bonzo playing them.

    jimi hendrix is better for a lot of reasons, he played the guitar with is teeth, was more creative, and less time to make is legacy, he played the national anthem using a guitar

    page more styles, better technique, far more creative ( physicall graffiti the holy bible of a guitar player ) more knowledge of a guitar and effects, ampliefiers etc.. just in ever aspect a better guitarist but jimi hendrix belongs in the top 10 but IMHO not in the top 5 but thats just taste i find him just far to sloppy live. page also was sloppy but only after 1976 till 1978 heroin....

    Larger body of work and was capable of a little more variety than Hendrix, but hell they are two of the top 5 greatest guitarists of all time it's hard to make a definitive decision here.

    Hendrix, definitely. More creative, rule breaking, and original. And not only was he playing really complicated and (for the most part) fast verses, he was singing, too. Page did play hard stuff, don't get me wrong, but he wasn't multitasking like Hendrix was. And plus, Hendrix put so much more emotion into it. Page was better at playing fast and really technical stuff, but Hendrix was better at pretty much everything else. I love Zeppelin, but Hendrix is better.

    My friend, Page was the ultimate multi-tasker;Gutarist{electric and acoustic},responsible band visionary and leader, producer, principal song writer, arranger, along with JPJ who he had specially selected. Basically I rate them both at the very pinnacle of experimental composition and expressive playing but I have a fondness for Page's taste in music and choice of band mates to share the sovereign feedom of expression.

    Jimi Hendrix. I love Led Zeppelin, but they were notorious for stealing blues songs from American bluesmen like Willie Dixon and Howlin' Wolf. And yes, I am well aware of the fact that Jimi Hendrix did quite a few covers himself, but he was more originial and much more unique than Page. I mean Christ, roughly 80% of the content in Led zeppelins first two albums was stolen from American bluesmen.

    Definitely Hendrix. Along with his drummer Mitch Mitchel. Some of the most innovative drumming and guitar playing.

    No, he's no guitar player, he's a guitar poser and sh*t talker. Just check out below the sh*t he said to PRW. I've got nearly 30 years under my belt and been jamming with PRW off and on for about half of that. That guy still makes the hair on my arms and neck stand up he's that good. And just keeps getting better and better.

    It's jerks like RnR why I just can't get into this site much.

    Only One problem, they are totally different styles of playing!
    Both are Amazing. Both do/did drugs like no tomorrow.
    Both ahead of their time.
    Sad Hendrix Died before I could see him. Never saw Page either. Would love to see both. Bummed.
    I have more picks than in the Photo though! :)

    Dude Hendrix was sloppy all day long as well, they both were. Page was the overall better player though and had many many more great songs, although I love Hendrix as well and thats not really fair because Hendrix died, so who knows.
