I have been wanting to do this for a while so here goes. This is not intended to be a trolling thread, just an open debate. I am not going to get upset if you disagree with me, and I hope you all can do the same.


For me it is a no brainer, Jimmy Page trumps Slash any day of the week. The only honest adavantage slash has is I think he is more technically profficiant. Which some put a lot of weight into that, but I think feeling is way more important. Even though Slash does have a great feel, not like Jimmy's. But that is it for slash. Page scores major points because he is the only guitar player in his band. I feel it shows Slash's and others limitations that they need to another guitarist to fill out the sound. And let's be honest, Slash's body of work doesn't add up. Page has written more famous riffs, more famous solos, and has influenced more guitarists, including Slash himself. I am not trying to knock Slash, I am just stating my opinion. Page just has WAAAY more blues in his soul than Slash does. And slash had Izzy to help write those riffs and songs, Page is the only guitarist in Zeppelin.
I like the old band, I like the new band, I even liked that freaky 2001/02 band. Can't we all just get along??????

Page for me. I prefer Slash, but I don't think it's even close: Page wrote and produced so many classics, and is responsible for a lot of shit that influenced so many people.

He's also a better songwriter compared to Slash imo, and overall can do more when it comes to having the full vision of a song realized.

The only advantage Slash has to Page in my opinion is that I like Slash's solos better. But Page trumps Slash is just about every way as a guitarist.

Jimmy Page, because he has songwriting chops that trump not only most guitar players but most people in general. His riffs, compositions, solos, etc. were just on another plateau of music excellence

I prefer Slash, but I'm not stupid enough to think he's a better musician/songwriter than Page. Page's playing is just a tad too sloppy for my tastes, but I appreciate him and respect him immensely.

Probably influenced by the fact that I think Led Zeppelin are one of the most overrated bands ever.

Page is good, but I just think Slash is better. Sorry.

Gnr and Led are my two favorites bands, it's hard to choose. Slash made memorable solo's, but overall it's Page for me.
