Jimmy Page discusses Rumble

In the 2009 released film It Might Get loud directed by Davis Guggenheim respect is given to legendary rock guitarist Link Wray. The documentary shows footage of Jimmy Page playing Rumble on 45.  It is a song in which he says possessed “profound attitude”.  The movie also showcases Jack White and The Edge. I personally can hear more of Link’s attitude through the playing of Jack White than the other two but that may just be how my ears hear their music.

Jimmy Page is widely known as a guitarist for The Yardbirds and Led Zeppelin playing predominately in blues infused stylings. I would have to say however that the “profound attitude” of Rumble did influence his playing. He is known for hard strumming and vibrato techniques originally popularized by Link.  If Jimmy Page who is a rock hall inductee believes Link had a major influence on rock and roll then perhaps the hall’s induction committee should come to the same realization.

Join us in our petition efforts to have Link Wray inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

  1. This is great stuff man.This is a move in the right direction for sure.I think every guitarist in the hall of fame should make a stand and admit to the powers that be,and protest the Hall Of Fame until he is put in.
