Happy birthday Jimmy Page! Legendary guitarist and songwriter born on this day in 1944.
James Patrick Page was born in the west London. In late 1964, Page was approached about the possibility of replacing Eric Clapton in the Yardbirds, but he declined out of loyalty to his friend. On 16 May 1966, drummer Keith Moon, bass player John Paul Jones, keyboardist Nicky Hopkins, Jeff Beck and Page recorded "Beck's Bolero" in London's IBC Studios. Page recruited vocalist Robert Plant and drummer John Bonham, and he was also contacted by John Paul Jones, who asked to join. During the Scandinavian tour, the new group appeared as the New Yardbirds, but soon recalled the old joke by Keith Moon and John Entwistle. Page stuck with that name to use for his new band. Peter Grant changed it to "Led Zeppelin", to avoid a mispronunciation as "Leed Zeppelin." Led Zeppelin is one of the best-selling music groups in the history of audio recording. Various sources estimate the group's worldwide sales at more than 200 or even 300 million albums.
Page is widely considered to be one of the greatest and most influential guitarists of all time. Rolling Stone magazine has described Page as "the pontiff of power riffing" and ranked him number three in their list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time", behind Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton respectively. In 2010, he was ranked number two in Gibson's list of "Top 50 Guitarists of All Time" and, in 2007, number four on Classic Rock's "100 Wildest Guitar Heroes". He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice; once as a member of the Yardbirds (1992) and once as a member of Led Zeppelin (1995).

somewhere between the 2am wake up, the 1,000 foot vertical drops, the pitch black climb through the jungle, dodging security guards and watching the sunrise through the clouds, i realized that the most terrifying ideas can become the most gratifying experiences 🍃 climb the god damn mountain.

Wat Arun was envisioned by King Taksin in 1768. It is believed that after fighting his way out of Ayutthaya, which was taken over by a Burmese army.
Wat Arun is involved in the Royal Barge Procession as the temple is where the king would travel by river to deliver new robes to the monks at the end of the Buddhist Lent period.
One of the hardest hikes for me mentally. There were many points where I didn’t think I could or would make it to the top. I am so lucky I had the support system I did during this, so I was able to conquer this beast! This just goes to show your mind is a powerful thing. Think and speak good things into existence, and you will be rewarded with good things in the end. Stay tough and keep your mind right! 🏔☀️🤙🏼 #alohalife#stairwaytoheaven#girlswhohike#adventuregirls#hawaii
