Jimmy Page is not only one of the greatest guitarists of all time, but he’s also a star in one of the greatest guitar movies of all time in 2008’s It Might Get Loud.

The whole premise of the film is based around one sentence that’s shown at the beginning of the film:  “On January 23, 2008, three musicians came together to discuss the electric guitar.”

Of course, when those three musicians are Page, U2’s The Edge and Jack White, it’s safe to say some magic is going to happen.

The entire film is one giant highlight reel, but in honor of Page’s birthday on January 9, here are six scenes that stand out.
