Kinks producer Shel Talmy:

Quote:
Jimmy Page did not play the solo on ‘You Really Got Me,’ which I’ve said about 5,000 times to people who insist that he did,” Talmy tells Corbin of Finding Zoso. “The reason I used Jimmy on the Kinks stuff is because Ray didn’t really want to play guitar and sing at the same time. In fact, Jimmy was playing rhythm guitar.”


The whole interview is here.

When Van Halen rose to fame with their version of You Really Got Me, the subject of Page playing the solo on the original came up. There was a whole 'old master' versus 'new master' kind of thing, because in '78 Led Zeppelin were still the lords of the rock pantheon.

Personally, I like the original but I think VH have the definitive version.
