(Gibson) Gibson Les Paul legend Jimmy Page is a true ambassador for the absolute power and authority of rock 'n' roll. And this Sunday, January 9, he gets a little more senior as he celebrates his 67th birthday. Of course, both Page and his music are ageless. Gibson documents his Top 10 Guitar Moments. Here are just two of them:

6. "Kashmir," Physical Graffiti (1975) East met West in earnest when Page, fascinated by the droning sound of the sitar and other stringed instruments from the Indian, Moroccan and Arabic musical traditions, put his guitar in D-A-D-G-A-D tuning and commenced to construct this droning, instantly transporting riff. "Kashmir" is another immediately unmistakable entry in rock history, utterly unique.

2. "Whole Lotta Love," Led Zeppelin II (1969) When they create the audio dictionary, this will be the tune found under the definition of "riff." Page's stuttering monster guitar hook is one of the most instantly recognizable turns in the history of popular recordings, and his blues freak-out in the song's middle is a study in how forceful unvarnished pentatonic soloing can be. full list
