Seen both Jeff Beck and The Firm. Can confirm Jeff Beck was better.
I can't watch the video, I'll search for it. Definately Page was the one who depended the most on his band. Both Beck and Clapton have had much more success on working with other musicians.

Hell no.

Clapton is an overrated bore with a splattering of decent songs.

Page wields the hammer of the gods. The fist five seconds of communication breakdown is worth more than clapton’s entire career.

Well, I don't agree that Clapton was overrated from 1966-1970. Cream were amazing and Derek And The Dominos, too. Maybe he got a little bit boring after that. I don't like Wonderful Tonight, for example.
I'd say Page was the riff master, but much more apart from that
Communication Breakdown is amazing, I can't understand why did I rate it with such a low mark on the Led Zeppelin thread. Probably because it's my phone's ringtone and I listen to that riff twice a day lol.

He was. Probably the most overrated guitarist ever. The whole Clapton is God thing. Ridiculous.

The most overrated guitarists were Keith Richards or Slash, imo.

Both Clapton and Richards are considered as amazing guitarists. You think that Clapton is the most overrated guitarist, OK, I don't agree, but I don't remember insulting you.
