    I found this photo on the net:



    We could see Edward and Jimmy Page together. I don't remember that they've done a common project? They played in live together? or they're just friends?

    The only one live-song I've got from Led Zep cover, played by VH, is in one of my bootlegs


    Covers Band From Pasadena

    From the time when Van Halen opens the other bands live-shows I think, anyway before they did their first album. There's songs from Aerosmith or ZZ top covers, or some are VH songs ("Runnin' with the Devil"), and we could ear THE ROVER, from Led Zeppelin. And, sincerely, I also have this song played in live by Led Zep, and for me, Eddie is better in live than Jimmy Page!

    I don´t think they ever jammed together or something like that. This picture seems to be from Jimmy Pages introduction to the walk of fame in 1992. I remember some pics with Jimmy, Ed, Luke and Dweezil from that Event and Ed looked exactly the same and wore the same shirt.
    I don´t think they are great buddies, but VH played more than that one song from that "2 year old kid with a broken arm", e.g. Rock´n´Roll, Dazed and Confused, Communication breakdown.

    The two men are my favorite guitarists. I think it's difficult to compare the two, personally, given their difference in styles. I don't think they've ever worked together (I believe the picture is from an event around 93-94 honoring Jimmy), though Van Hagar has played a few zeppelin tunes live (rover, rock n roll, possibly others).

    As far as Eddie being better live, I almost agree. Jimmy Page is great live but I think EVH is a little more polished. Given EVH's use of a tremolo bar and sometimes heavy distortion, I think it's easier for him to hide any mistakes, if that makes sense. Still, I'd say EVH has the edge in my book.

    Thats pretty clean cut looking for the Edster. Great picture. I would love to hear a Jimmy Page/Van Halen tour.

    Yes! "Rock'n'Roll" is in some bootlegs from Sammy Hagar period, I forgot it! I didn't knew that VH played "Communication Breakdown" and "Dazed and Confused".

    For me, the best of Jimmy Page were the BBC sessions and the first Led Zep lives.

    As far as i know, they only played those songs once in puplic and that was on 05/21/1992 when they played the Cabo bar. They had a short medley of: Satisfaction, Mississippi Queen, the ocean, communication breakdown and dazed & confused at the end of their set.

    I have the bootleg from this show, and it rocks (although the sound quality on that one is real bad).

    Ah! Too recent for me! [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Van Halen, at the opening of the band, played songs from the other bands. I've got a few bootlegs from this period, and there is this song, from Led Zeppelin Physical graffiti, called THE ROVER.

    In the great site "Van Halen Bootlegs" -- http://www.vhboots.com/ [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img] -- you can found practically EVERY VH bootlegs which does exist in the world, and I was surprised to see the first Van Halen demos, under the first name of the band: MAMMOTH!

    Jimmy Page is a far more versitile, and far better player than EVH. JP explored many different styles and didn't just stick to the head banging crap laced with fancy smancy trickery ways of EVH. Many great acoustic tunes, alternate tunings to spice things up, far superior musicianship which will always rank higher in my book. JP is sloppy at times, no doubt there, but his creativity, musicanship, and his ability to produce, just look at III, far exceeds EVH. EVH had all his ansewres at the bottom of a bottle, without the bottle he is what he is today NOTHING BUT A WASHED UP DRUNK!

    The 2 guys are different players, so comparing them is somewhat pointless. Obviously, Eddie's far and above Page technically. Jimmy's main power lies in his writing. Both are wildly influential, and are legends in their own right. To say that Page is better because of musicianship is way off.....Eddie not only rewrote the rules on guitar, he also has written some very complex stuff...on guitar and keyboard. BOTH have fiddled with weird tunings and odd noises pulled out of nowhere on the guitar. BOTH have written riffs that will stand the test of time. Overall, IMO Eddie takes the crown....but i'd never lessen Page's role in the history of rock guitar. And...to the dude who accused EVH to be a washed up drunk....bud, clean out the wax. Later.

    I agree, Jimmy's main power lies in his writing, how true. For me, Jimmy Page is just a great composer. But he has got difficulties to play his own songs like THE ROVER, and Eddie has done a fabulous job with this song in live!

    By the way, I was wrong about the CD, my version is not from COVERS BAND FROM PASADENA but from MAGIC MOUNTAIN 1977.

    Well part of Jimmy's talent is also in production. All of those great drum sounds on the Zep albums were the result of Jimmy knowing how to mic them. He invented backwards echo as well, and really helped set the high water mark in studio wizardry. Kind of like the great Les Paul...invented the solid body electric (open for debate), and multitracking (proven fact).

    Edward isn't so much of a studio wizard, but by God the man knows how to get an awesome guitar tone. I love both of these guys, and so do millions of others.

    There was that famous moment at Farm Aid when Sammy said, "Forget all this tractor shit, let's rock and roll" and he and Ed launched into "Rock and Roll". That got them yanked from the live broadcast...
