The lead guitarist of the legendary band Metallica, Kirk Hammett, recently posted a tweet on his Twitter account and showed his support for an article written about Led Zeppelin’s co-founder and guitarist Jimmy Page.
Jimmy Page’s music career started in 1957, when he was 13 years old, as he appeared in a skiffle quartet on Huw Wheldon’s ‘All Your Own’ talent quest program which aired on BBC1. He has enjoyed increasing popularity ever since and his career peaked when he founded Led Zeppelin in 1968.
Being such a successful rockstar often makes Jimmy Page the main topic of numerous news articles. Total Guitar recently posted an article about ‘Jimmy Page’s 20 greatest guitar moments‘ which was shared by his friends and fans, including Kirk Hammett.
Kirk Hammett is known to be a big fan of Led Zeppelin and in specific, Jimmy Page. In previous interviews, Kirk had revealed that his interest in music grew when he discovered his brother’s guitar collection and records. He had records of Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, and many more.
Last year, Hammett posted a photo of Jimmy Page’s Sundragon Amp and said that he was blown away by the sound. Thus, it should not be surprising that the Metallica guitarist was one of the people to post a complimenting article about Jimmy Page on his Twitter account.
In his recent Twitter post, Hammett retweeted the article written about Jimmy Page and said that ‘He’s definitely got some good ones.’ His tweet received numerous comments most of which applauded Kirk for taking the time to appreciate Jimmy Page. Others also added that he himself is one of the best guitarists too.
Here’s what Kirk Hammett said in his recent tweet:
“He’s definitely got some good ones!”
