Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page has been praised as one of the greatest guitar players of his generation by a music writer.

In an article for the Gibson website, Shane Sanders explained that each guitar player is made unique by their different styles, which are often informed by their interests and working methods.

"There are three key ingredients to Jimmy Page's spellbinding success - a firm grasp of the importance of dynamics, a vocal approach to his instrument and a vast sonic palette," he stated.

He added that Page has managed to achieve an iconic status as a Les Paulguitar player, thanks to a prolific output and a great understanding of music.

Earlier this year, Page was honoured with a United Nations peace prize for his work in organising a special concert in China.

The free Show of Peace concert was originally due to take place last Saturday (April 17th 2010) in Beijing, but the date of the gig has now been moved to October 10th by organisers.
