Once he became a superstar via The Yardbirds and Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Page started discussing his work as session guitarist during the 1960s. Unfortunately, this led to Page being erroneously credited to tracks he did not play on. True, he played rhythm guitar on The Who’s ‘I Can’t Explain’, but he definitely did not play the soaring riff on ‘You Really Got Me’. And although he plays on A Hard Days Night, it’s not the bouncy arpeggio heard on ‘Ringo’s theme’.

Ostensibly a re-recording of ‘This Boy’, the track finds James Bond mainstay Vic Flick flexing his muscle over the jaunty hook. Although it’s been rumoured that Page plays background guitar – he is believed to have played rhythm guitar on the Goldfinger soundtrack – Flick has denied this, stating that Page was not in “EMI Number 2 studio” when he laid down the riff. But Page’s guitar can be heard elsewhere, and according to Tony Barrell, Page’s guitar can be heard when Ringo Starr turns on a radio, turning the volume to let a guitar ricochet through the proceedings.
