Jimmy Page
- Favourite Briton.

Born in Heston, London
Born on 9th of January 1944

Jimmy Page’s future was probably settled as a child when, on moving into his family’s new home, he found a guitar. He learned to play with the benefit of a few lessons and a lot of listening to blues, rock and roll, and skiffle records. Page made his name as a session musician, then as a member of the legendary pop group The Yardbirds, and subsequently as guitarist with the hugely successful rock band Led Zeppelin, Page responsible for some of the genre’s greatest guitar riffs. He has been involved in various philanthropic projects, and published his autobiography.
