I think we would be talking about Randy Rhoades, absolutely. He was great and with some longevity he could have really made a deep mark. At least that's my opinion.

I had completely forgotten Santana, until I listened to him a few days ago. Sounds so effortless. Two other things I remembered that go in the "You Wouldn't Think It" file.

1) A friend said he saw Prince while living in Germany. Went to the show as a kind of "yeah, why not" type thing. He said at one point Prince started JAMMIN, and absolutely blew them all away! Totally unexpected.

2) Back in the '80s when we were high-school aged, they had a Rick Springfield concert, "Live and Kickin", on tv which was being simulcast on DC 101. I thought it was going to be stupid, but my brother set up everything to try and tape it. Same thing as above... at one point he came out and started jammin like crazy! We all just kinda looked at each other in astonishment because this was WAY beyond the cutsie-poo "Jessie's Girl" stuff we expected. He could really play. Who knew?

I would have to say

Slash of GNR is one of the greatest guitar players ever.
Ace Frehley of KISS, has pured out some great tunes.
Keith Richards, of the Stones great too.
Tony Iommi was Black Sabbath deserves a mention.

Steve Jones, the COOLEST guitar playr EVER!!
He may be mostly power chords but more kids picked up the guitar because of him than the likes of wanky malmsteen and metalicrap...

Seeing as how everyone else has pretty much been covered I'll go for something a little different:

Steve Malkmus
Graham Coxon

I'm sure there's alot more but I can't think right now.

where's the respect man? cmon we all know it has to be Page and closely it would have to be Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac that guy plays clear and smooth and without a pick pretty damn well

For my money the best guitarist I have ever seen is Michael Hedges. Him alone on stage with an acoustic guitar and you'd think he had a full band behind him. He made that guitar do things I never saw before or since...


The rest of my list was mentioned by everyone else on this thread. The rest of my top ten (in no particular order) would probably be, Rhodes, Vai, Satriani, Hammet, Martin, Slash, Hendrix, Clapton, and Moore

Stevie Vai
Eric Johnson
Joe Satriani

Good one! Almost forgot about how good Lindsey really is.

My choices:

1. Steven Vai

2. Rick Neilson
3. Randy Rhodes
4. Angus Young
5. Ted Nugent

Does anyone remember the movie Crossroads? That was the first time I ever saw Vai play - he just blew me away.

Vivian Campbell, Frank Marino, Randy Rhoads and Roy Clark (yeah I said it, Roy Clark) anyone ever seen him play? Killer! Can't forget Slash, Wes Borland, Eddie Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix, Ted Nugent... man the list can go on with extraordinary talent. I'd like to combine Randy Rhoads and Wes Borland style into one personally.
Kerry Livgren of Kansas and everyone knows who Jimmy page is.
Kerry's acoustic solo on "Two For The Show" is awesome.

So, anyway, here's some of mine that I haven't seen mentioned yet -

Paul Gilbert
Vernon Reid
Adrian Legg
Mike Kenneally
