Default Jimmy vs. Jimi

I know this thread is probably gonna start WWIII, but I'm gonna post it anyway. My vote goes to page.
"Into this house we’re born
Into this world we’re thrown
Like a dog without a bone
An actor out on loan
Riders on the storm"

"How many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
How many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?"

"Diamond rope silver chain
Pretty noose is pretty pain
And I don’t like what you got me hanging from"

shizzz.....i dont know...

hendrix just has that magic.......but page is so solid and complete.........gahhh.....i think im gonna go for page........wait no.....*head explodes*
How'd I end up here to begin with? I don't know.
Why do I start what I can't finish?
Oh please, don't barrage me with questions to all those ugly answers.
My ego's like my stomach- it keeps shitting what I feed it.
But maybe I don't want to finish anything anymore..
maybe I can wait in bed 'til she comes home. and whispers....

How can you ask such a question!

I already have a headache, how convenient.

I pick Page, as being better. Jimi as being a soul mover. ****.
She thinks I'm a reclusive genius, she's going to be very disappointed when she finds out i'm a reclusive wanker

I'd go for Hendrix. Page was technically fantastic, came up with great riffs, amazing stuff... but Hendrix just had this magic and uniqueness to the way he played, he had new ideas, new sounds. Jimmy Page comes as close as anybody else could, but Hendrix really was the daddy.

Thanks for putting up the two best for a face off though - not like a lot of similar threads where it would have been "who's the best guitarist, Cobain, Corgan, Noel Gallagher or Bryan Adams?..."
