Both are great players. But I'd take Heartbreaker over anything Iommi played.

If you listen to their music and don't hear some similarities between their heavy bluesy style then you must be deaf.

Iommi for me

Iommi was an innovator whilst Page just improved what was already around

edit - i believed i said the same thing when blastingas brought up Hendrix vs Page

If you're heavily invested in those sounds the differences between two players can sound miles apart. If you listen to a more global offering then they start to seem closer together. Its all relative. Page and Iommi sound nothing alike until you ask about Page, Iommi, and Pat Metheny.

They don't always sound alike. Obviously they have their differences, but to say they sound nothing alike is completely wrong. There are some solos of theirs that sound pretty similar. I'll have to post a couple

I was more of a Led Zeppelin fan growing, so Jimmy Page gets my vote. Iommi is a class act and has my respect! I was lucky enough to have seen both Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath in concert.

Listen to any 2 rock guitarists and their will be similarities. Lets face it though, Page is known or helping write the book on blues rock. Iommi wrote the book on metal nearly single handedly. If you want similar listen to Rush's first album. Working Man could have been Iommi playing.

Eh, I guess. I disagree. Take Robbie Robertson for example, and compare him to Jimmy page. There certainly arent as many similarities between their playing as there are between page and iommi. Not all rock guitarists are as similar as page and iommi. Iommi may have wrote the book on heavy metal, but he was also a bluesy player. And I disagree that page wrote the book on blues rock, but he was also heavy bluesy player.

If you dont think Page was one of the biggest influences in nearly ever blues rock player today your kidding yourself. Sure he wasnt Hendrix, but was about as close as one could get.
