Re: hendrix vs. paige
I agree with moe.ron it really depends on my mood, it's too tough to say who's better, I love both their work. I do think it's worth noting that Hendrix had a much shorter time to say what he wanted to say though, '66-'70 unless you want to count his time as a backing musician, but I don't think that's what we're talking about here. Page however had 12 years in Zeppelin alone, and in my opinion there is a definite drop off in his playing starting around '76 or '77, when he really got heavy into the smack. If you want to factor in who was more prolific, I'd have to give an edge to Jimi.
