These guys are pretty good
No one mentioned Rory Gallagher who Eric Clapton said was the best he's ever seen...
An interview with Buddy
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!
Yeah but Jerry is not. Here is him and Chet
In no particular order (and I missed a few):
Eric Clapton ~ Cream
Robert Fripp ~ King Crimson
Adrian Belew ~ King Crimson
Robbie Krieger ~ The Doors
Les and Mary Paul
Jorma Kaukonen ~ Jefferson Airplane
Roger McGuinn ~ The Byrds
George Harrison ~ The Beatles
Dick Dale ~ "King of the Surf Guitar"
Joe Walsh ~ The James Gang
Stevie Ray Vaughn
Jimmy Page ~ The Yardbyrds
Richie Blackmore ~ Deep Purple
Steve Howe ~ Yes
Robin Trowler ~ Procol Harum
No mention of Pete Green, who was in Fleetwood Mac?
No list of this nature would be complete without a nod to the Purpleness himself, Prince. Underrated as a guitarist.
2 all the others
Oh yeah... Brian Setzer is phenomenal.
No mention of George Benson?
Though my taste are always developing and changing I would say and this is just my opinion my top 5 are as follows
2. Dave Gilmour
3. Jimmy Page
4. Tony Iommi
5. Peter Green
all the blind negroes .
