Yes, you were the best

On this day in 1965,
John Mayall released the single Witch Doctor
on Immediate Records, where page was a producer
Jimmy Page recently told Uncut magazine why Led Zeppelin were the greatest band,
What I mean is: when you talk about a band as a collaborative musical unit, we were the best. ..
I am not talking about one or two genius songwriters, and everyone else tagging along. I am talking about a collection of musicians who are each at the top of their craft in their own right. In Led Zeppelin, we were exactly that.
 Page recently revealed who ruined the Led Zeppelin reunion:
It’s really hard to say something like that and not sound conceited, but over the years, a lot of other musicians have told me they thought we were the best. I’m not talking about record sales or concert attendance, although I think we can hold our own with anyone.
Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page revealed that he rejected a distortion pedal that was given to Jimi Hendrix in a new interview. Page rejected the Octavia used on Hendrix’s classic hit Purple Haze.
One own comment: still I use the Octavia pedal, when we 're playing with this hard song Purple Haze.
It was a pivotal moment for my sound. I met this guy called Roger Mayer at a gig in Surbiton. He worked for the Admiralty and he was a boffin, really, into his music. He asked me if I needed anything for my guitar. He came over to my house one day and I played him a song with electric distortion and said, ‘I want to find a way to sustain it.'
Jimmy continues:
Mayer went away and came back with this box with an on/off switch – that meant you could control the distortion. It was phenomenal. When I started taking it to sessions, the other guitarists were blown away. The blood drained from their faces – but the guys doing the arrangements loved it.
Then there were Mayer’s “other box,” some modulator.
It was difficult to control in the studio from the guitar, so I said it wasn’t for me.
