So obviously everyone knows that back in the early seventies around the golden age of classic rock, Jimmy Page, and consequently John Paul Jones, was considered the master of riffs as he seemed to have an endless supply of great ones. Not many guitarists (or bassists) since have come up with so many memorable riffs, most being lucky to find even one good one, however, after listening to Dead Star again recently and considering the increased solid riffage of DRONES, I believe Matt (with Chris of course) has written just as many, if not more, awesome riffs as Page (with JPJ) back in the seventies and late sixties. The only problem seems to be Muse's early stuff isn't nearly popular enough with the general public for most people to realize how much of a riff master Mr. Bellamy (with Chris) is, potentially the best riffmaker since Page (with Jones), and possibly even batter. Seeing as this is of course the Muse message board, I'm sure most of us would be more than a little biased in this discussion, but I would still like to ask: between Led Zep's riff masters and Muse's, which pair of riff heros is superior? And of course if all else fails, we can just argue over the best and worst Muse riffs.
