Page & Easton=Apples & Oranges 'tis hardly a surprise that Mr Page is held in such high regard by folks on a Les Paul forum. I think we're being very narrow minded to say Page is a God and let others go unheralded. I would offer Chet Atkins, Les Paul, Joe Pass, Scottie More, Jerry Reed, Roy Clark, and countless others who are/were just as "good" and influenced just as many folks as JP. Believe it or not, JP had no influence on me. I listened to Zep, but I was playing acoustic music at the time. When I started playing pro, I played country. So, somehow, I've made it this far without ever learning to play Zep tunes. It's all good. It would be a mighty boring world if we all played like JP.
