The Foo Fighters frontman has gushed about his favourite axeman in a recent interview.
Dave Grohl has dubbed Jimmy Page one of his favourite guitar soloists of all time.
"I loved the way that he was always teetering on the edge of total chaos but seemed to place every note in a space that drew emotion."
He added of the famous Led Zeppelin guitarist: "...It's that sort fearlessness that I respect most in musicians. Not perfection or any sort of clean technical propheciancy.
"I really like to see musicians right on the edge of just falling apart, and he did that in the most beautiful way."
The Learn To Fly rocker went on to cite an instrumental soundtrack by American legend Ry Cooder for 1984 film Paris, Texas as one of his favourite album's of all time.

The outlet adds that the series will include excerpts gathered from years of interviews with the mothers of the likes of Amy Winehouse, R.E.M's Michael Stipe and Tom Morello, as well as stories and snapshots from Dave Grohl's childhood and across his career.
Grohl recently proved he's still a kid when it comes to his sense of humour after he pranking an entire audience in Sweden recently.

Gothenburg is the same city where the rockstar fell and broke his leg during a gig in 2015.
The accident forced the band to pull out of headlining Glastonbury Festival and were replaced by Florence + The Machine.
On the night of what was to be their set, Florence Welch honoured Dave and co by covering their Times Like These single.
Two years later when the Foos finally headlined, Dave Grohl repaid the favour and sang the track back to the singer:
