    If we were talking about jazz or blues then possibly someone else but when it comes to rock! Well, in my opinion it's:

    Jimmy Page on guitar


    John Bonham on drums

    John Paul Jones (if you had asked)

    Similar to the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, as soon as I write down my favorites they've changed. So by the time you read this someone else's names should be inferred. But for this nanosecond they're:

    Guitar - Bill Frisell
    Keyboards - Barry Miles
    Drums - Gavin Harrison
