“I picked this one for the reason that other people wouldn’t – they would’ve gone for Zeppelin II or IV. But when I think of The Ocean, it’s one of the most classic Zeppelin songs and riffs. You see people pick up the guitar and immediately try to play it. That says a lot right there.
“I like this album because the guitar playing is so varied. Zeppelin were trying to hit on a lot of different genres. They’re doing funk, rock, folk, reggae, and they’re even touching on this raw ‘50s pop, almost. It’s cool to hear Page doing his take on somebody in James Brown’s band in The Crunge. He’s having a lot of fun. It’s obviously him doing it – it has that Page looseness.
“I like what Josh Homme said – that Jimi Hendrix was the light and Jimmy Page was the dark. His sloppiness is almost evil. Maybe it’s the occult stuff, maybe it’s the drugs, and maybe it’s just him not giving a shit. Well, he obviously gave quite a shit – you know what I mean. It's attitude. His looseness has form. Nobody can play this crazy, mixed-up blob of sound and notes like Jimmy Page. His feel is unmatched.”
