Jimmy Page's guitar lick in Led Zeppelin's "WHOLE LOTTA LOVE" has been voted by the listeners of BBC Radio 2 as the best guitar riff from a list of 100 compiled by a panel of Radio 2 and 6 DJ's, critics and record producers. Commenting on the honor, Page says, "I wanted a riff that really moved, that people would really get, and would bring a smile to their faces, but when I played it with the band, it really went into overdrive. There was this intent to have this riff and the movement of it, so it was menacing as well as quite sort of caressing." SOUNDS CARESS MY EARS, INDEED!!!! Here is the complete list:

1) Led Zeppelin.......................WHOLE LOTTA LOVE

2) Guns N' Roses.....................SWEET CHILD O' MINE

3) AC/DC.................................BACK IN BLACK

4) Deep Purple.........................SMOKE ON THE WATER
