“I have to include Zeppelin II. I mean, we’ve all heard it a billion times, but it’s truly one of the archetypal guitar albums in the universe. In so many ways, this album defines what a guitar should sound like. Jimmy did something new and different, and it still stands today.”
“It’s like the Jimi Hendrix/Stephen Stills thing: Jimmy found all of these tones and knew what to do with them. Ramble On has the beautiful twin solos, and the bit in What Is And What Should Never Be with the incredible slide playing. What can you say about genius?
“Moby Dick – the playing is so percussive, and it absolutely fits the mood of the song. And with Heartbreaker, you know, there’s a bit of sloppiness, but try to get anybody to play as cool and expressive and as nuanced – they won’t be able to match it. I dare anybody else to do it. They can't."
