Meanwhile, Led Zeppelin‘s ‘Whole Lotta Love’ has been named the Greatest Guitar Riff Of All Time by BBC Radio 2 listeners. Other riffs featured in the top ten, which was revealed by Zoe Ball on BBC Radio 2 on August 25, included Guns N’ Roses’ ‘Sweet Child O’ Mine’ and ‘Back In Black’ by AC/DC. Speaking about their win, Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page said he was surprised by its success. “I’m knocked out by this, because I didn’t expect that to happen,” he said.
