    No one mentioned Rory Gallagher who Eric Clapton said was the best he's ever seen...

    Blues? B B King. I quite liked him but when I saw him live he went so far up in my list of greats.

    I would have loved to see B.B. in person. The man did have a way with vibrato when playing but what made him great was his showmanship, or so I've been told.

    I have got to see Buddy Guy live before I lose my chance. Next time he comes anywhere close to me I plan on going.

    Gotta add the great Billy Gibbons. The man is fantastic!

    And of course we can't forget the Snowman. You know he East Bound and Down guy from Smokey and the Bandit, Jerry Reed.

    That "British Guitarist" guy is so annoying...

    Animals As Leaders are one of my favorites for melody, and technicality. But they also get surprisingly heavy as fuck whilst still keeping it groovin!

    No list of this nature would be complete without a nod to the Purpleness himself, Prince. Underrated as a guitarist.
