Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page has paid tribute to Jack White, describing the musician as a "hero" to guitarists both old and young. Page appears alongside The White Stripes star in the forthcoming film documentary, It Might Get Loud. Released in the UK next month, the film also features U2 guitarist The Edge. In an interview BBC 6 Music, Page said he had enjoyed sharing his experiences with both musicians. "I think Jack White is definitely a hero to a young generation of guitarists and an old generation of guitarists," he said. "There's no doubt about that as someone who has roots. "Not only that, Jack, every time that he has a new project, it's always worth checking out because he won't disappoint you." However, Page was less forthcoming when asked if he had plans to work with White in the future. "Not immediately that I know of. I think everyone's really busy at this point in time, but it's great that it manifests on this film," he said. It Might Get Loud will be screened in select cinemas from January 5.
