Best impersonator bar none.

EVERYTHING is the same.

Best at his job in the world.

Sorry but I disagree.  It's like watching a bad drag queen. IMHO all he does is ape Led Zeppelin. He may resemble Jimmy but it's in appearance only. There is no feeling in his guitar playing that comes anywhere near to what Jimmy actually sounds like.  Somebody posted an audio cut of him jamming and tried to pass it off as an unheard jam by Zeppelin. As soon as I heard it I knew it wasn't Jimmy or Zeppelin in general, turns out it was this guy. Couple others got it too.  

If you want to listen to Guitarists who know Jimmy check out Blue Congo playing Dazed and Confused on his ACOUSTIC GUITAR! He plays it mostly from his slant but at the end, he adds a couple licks that you can hear Jimmy Play live and he plays them correctly and if you are as intimately familiar with Zeppelin's live repertoire as I am you will also feel it. He gets Jimmy.  Then head over to porgie's vids where he and his mates recreate Zeppelin's studio work. They are as close to Zeppelin as you can get without being them and I can feel it in my bones when I watch their vids. These guys are on another level when compared to sakurai.  He's all pride pomp and circumstance with nothing behind the veil.  TMSAISTI.:D

p.s. My opinion is based on 35 years of obsessive listening to Live Zeppelin.

I fooled die-hards blind testing them making them think Sakurai IS Page.

 

Sorry but you're wrong here..

 

Watch this and tell me he doesn't have everything COMPLETELY downpat.

The dude literally is Saturn's incarnation of Jimmy and we are borrowing him for a bit IMO.

Jimmy Page himself, was impressed when he flew over to see Jimmy Sakurai play in Japan years ago. Jimmy Sakurai pays tribute and concert video on YouTube proves he helps keep the music of Led Zeppelin’s live style and feel alive whether it be with JBLZE, Mr. Jimmy , etc.

R😎🎸👍

"Comments are Disabled for the Video"...

1. The guitarist should have done more blow before the show.

2. I thought Jimmy's shades were rose-colored.

3. Nice touch having Tommy Chong sit in on drums. ☺️

Absolutely agree with you on this- Sakurai is phenomenally good at not just the technical stuff but also the look and the moves. I would like to see him put the odd bum note in tho-just to be totally authentic 😉
