Your pretty sure he came up with them? do you know some facts? Dude I can perfectly understand you having an opinion the Hendrix was better but to totally discredit everything Jimmy did is pretty ignorant.
I wasn't discrediting everything Page did, I love Page. My friend told me most of what I said (he thinks Page is better than Hendrix) and he's actually shown me some of the songs that Page got his ideas from, so I trust him. I think I read in a Led Zeppelin biography that John Paul Jones came up with alot of the riffs. I wouldn't say all Led Zeppelin songs are ripped off and I never did, I just said that not all of Led Zeppelin's songs were all from Page's imagination, he took ideas from other people and made them his own.
