A number of guitar stars have gushed over the performance and shared it on their social media channels. Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello tweeted: “Some people are just really talented. #HogwartsAxeslinger?”
KISS guitarist Paul Stanley and Living Colour’s Vernon Reid also shared the video, with the latter tweeting: “Jimmy Page ain’t seen THAT coming! Got DAYUM.”
