101Adam GontierAdam Wade Gontier is a Canadian musician and songwriter. He is the lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for Saint Asonia, but is best known as the former lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter of the Canadian rock band Three Days Grace.
102Misha Mansoor
103Robbin Crosby

Also does amazing leads, great tone and chops. RIP King.

104Chad KroegerChad Robert Kroeger is a Canadian musician and producer, best known as the lead vocalist and guitarist for the Canadian rock band, Nickelback.
105Richard Fortus

He should be at the first 50, he has adapted to play with Buckethead, Robin Finck, Bumblefoot, DJ Ashba, and Slash, listen Knockin' On Heavens Door 2002-2014, and Nightrain 2002-Today, he's just awesome,

The reason he does not get so much appreciation is because Izzy Stradlin is more popular as the rhythm guitarist of Guns N' Roses. Not denying that Izzy is great, but not as a guitarist, Richard can do much more. If you don't believe me, go listen to Knocking On Heaven's Door live at O2 Arena, London (2012).

106David Sanchez

Havok is a big, tight thrash machine with this dynamic frontman to lead them. His riffs and playing are a constant reminder that modern thrash still exists and David is the new Mustaine (with a better voice! ) give them a look and then tell me he isn't a great guitarist

107Troy Van Leeuwen
108Fredrik Norrman

Katatonia, October Tide, etc.

109Tim McIlrathTimothy James "Tim" McIlrath is an American punk rock musician. He is the lead singer, rhythm guitarist, songwriter and co-founder of the American punk rock band Rise Against.
110Glenn Frey
111Don Dokken
