Jimmy Page vs. Brian May-Guitar World poll link

Recommended Posts

Damn, that is very hard, I have to say Jimmy Page because I'm biased haha. That doesn't mean i don't respect May, he's in my top 15 best guitarists ever.

If you wanna vote more times, open the link in an incognit windows, in the incognit windows vote again, close it, open it again and vote again...

So it's a FB popularity contest, not a real poll.

Yes. Page was on 72% of the votes. Than Queen posted on their FB page and now May is winning.

I'm sure that May is lovely chap, I have never had the pleasure of chatting with him, and he is a very good guitar player, but let us be serious for a minute, he is not half the artistic player that Page is, and yes, before anyone gets angry with me, I'm a Queen fan as well.

It's like comparing a duck and an airplane. Both can fly pretty well but only one takes you places.

And the other one is a f*cking duck.

As I assumed Brian May is winning. Anyone who isn't insane knows Page is the superior guitarist but because Queen has become so trendy with young libs who don't even care about the music, just that Mercury was gay, Queen members will win pretty much anything like this online just because Queen has become PC mainstream. No disrespect to Brian May on my part. I think he is a great guitarist and songwriter. Jimmy Page is just better.

I think you are way outta line bringing politics into this. Young libs...is that code for "gay people?" Give me a break, May is winning simply because they posted the link on the Facebook page, nothing more. If some asshole decided to do the same and whore out the Led Zeppelin Facebook page I guarantee Page would be winning by a long shot. So what does that prove? A bunch of Ayn Rand loving individualists are ruling the world? I think not...

i just wanna put it out there that my views on polls and competitions and picking the best of anything is always an iffy issue for me. it’s always fun to have, to check out, or to vote on for support, but it shouldn’t be taken as anything other than a reference point. diversity, color, light and shade (aw yeah), is important for any environment. there are too many factors and individual preferences that go into any criteria to come up with an absolute canon for anything, and it all boils down to digging all the different kinds of creativity the world has to offer. i have my favourites, but i won’t tell you it’s better than yours

^ i just copy pasted what i posted on my blog after linking the poll. i agree with you guys, and besides being biased, Page's versatility really puts him in a league of his own. still though, like i said, it's fun to support. Now May is up by about 10%, so i'm going on Facebook ;)

Queen has become very popular among a certain demographic because of Fred, and I'm guessing that Brian May is doing well in the "poll" for that reason. Brian is excellent, but come on, he is no Page

i figured a lot of zepp fans would snub these kinds of polls. and though i get it, and i'm not taking it seriously, it wouldn't take too long to vote ;P

That is the reason. That's the same reason Ted Nugent is always excluded from these types of things. And when I want to say gay people I say gay people. I don't talk in code. I'm sure you like everyone else has met these turds who say they are Bob Marley and Queen fans but don't know any songs. It's all about going along to get along. This is PC cool.
