I like Alex Better.


More original


But Page made better riffs and better compositions and was more innovative, how is Lifeson more original?

Yeah Lifeson is better... Page is good, but not intricate... I mean hell he ripped Stairway off

Prog in itself is "intricate"

and Rush is pretty much the greatest band ever

Complex ?

What else could be more complex that ALL off his damn work.

And yeah I like Rush but for me the talent is in Lee and Peart. Lifeson sucks.

Seriously dude....

ya he did rip off Starirway I'll admit to that . But Rush is THE greatest band ever? You delusional Prog Heads are pathetic. In terms of music Led Zeppelin rapes the **** out of Rush.

Yeah, actually I play it from time to time.

I've been here for 3 years. I just registered recently.

The question should be something like....

"Can you compose YYZ? "

Get a life and try to do your stuff instead of playing Rush's stuff 24/7.

Oh yeah get off my **** too please.

It just pisses me off seeing guys that because they grew up with a band, they have the right to say what and what not.

Your last point was true, but at the same time makes me wonder how much of a guitarist you're. Not that I'll judge you.

In my opinion Alex Liferson is one of the most Under-rated guitarists of all time, and Jimmy page is one of the most over-rated....
Frank Zappa's not dead. He just smells funny.

Bron-Yr-Aur is his best arrangement I think, if not that then maybe Achilles Last Stand. The problem is that Lifeson has done a lot more complex stuff than Page has. I still prefer the Zep though.

First off, **** Stairway. Led Zeppelin doesn't revolve around the song. They had 3 albums before it and they were all better than Zeppelin IV.

Second, Rush isn't prog. rock. It's just a label that was slapped on them. Geddy Lee says Rush is rock and nothing more. Geddy said the whole 'prog. rock' name was stupid because people tend to think that only intelligent people can play prog rock.

Third, Page is better than Lifeson, but Rush is still awesome.

Just so we can end this on good terms... here is what I am saying...

Alex Lifeson, Neil Peart, and Geddy Lee are three of the most talented musicians alive today...

Page is good, and I admire his work, but he is very overrated, along with Stairway to Heaven.

I could never ever hope to be 1/10th the guitarist Lifeson or page is...

Haha not really, but Jimmy Page takes the award for most overrated guitarist ever.



Overrated as a guitarist? How so? He's one of the most influential, critically acclaimed, and revolutionary guitarists of all time.
#23
Lifeson is better, listen to Xanadu - it's one of the best composed rock songs of modern times. It's sublime. I like Led Zeppelin and I believe they caught a wider audience but Rush is a better band. They music covers more ground and it is all so different, but amazing in it's own respect.
Yeah Dimebag is not the "Greatest Guitarist" of all time... Hendrix maybe... I must go get food to eat with my mouth

$250 for an amp? wow. is it worth it to invest that much in the amp?

Uh do you really think that the greatest guitarist award goes to a classic rock/ blues rock player? He was good but jesus not the best by far
