Jimmy Page Quotes:

I believe every guitar player inherently has something unique about their playing. They just have to identify what makes them different and develop it.

Jimmy Page

I may not believe in myself, but I believe in what I’m doing.

Jimmy Page

Let me explain something about guitar playing. Everyone’s got their own character, and that’s the thing that’s amazed me about guitar playing since the day I first picked it up. Everyone’s approach to what can come out of six strings is different from another person, but it’s all valid.

Jimmy Page

I’m just looking for an angel with a broken wing.

Jimmy Page

My influences were the riff-based blues coming from Chicago in the Fifties – Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf and Billy Boy Arnold records.

Jimmy Page

I always want to do my very best, and it’s frustrating to have something hold me back.

Jimmy Page

Time sometimes passes quite quickly.
