I think if you want to think about it purely in terms of who caused more people to pick up a guitar, then that would be Jimmy Page. His music has a broader base of appeal. When Led Zeppelin reformed in 2007, how many millions of people registered just to get the chance to get a ticket? How many rock legends were in the audience that night. I think also to say that Page was second in the blues rock category is also unfair as that boils down to a question of taste. Also, if you don't think Page didn't do acoustic, listen to Led Zeppelin III, almost all of there albums have some acoustic music, and after 1972, they did an acoustic set every night. Jimmy Page could play circles around Tony Iommi, he was just a more talented guitarist, that isn't opinion, that is just fact.
