Poll: Led Zep Has Greatest Guitar Riff Ever

Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Lovehas been voted the greatest guitar riff of all time by listeners of BBC Radio 2. The rock classic came out top from a list of 100 riffs drawn up by a panel of Radio 2 and 6 Music DJs, critics and record producers. “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Guns ‘N’ Roses was second in the poll, with “Back In Black” (AC/DC) and “Smoke On The Water” (Deep Purple) the next most popular. Led Zep guitarist Jimmy Page said he was “knocked out” by winning the vote. I would have voted for “Layla.”
