J. Winter is most underrated guitarist in the world. Johnny is 70 years old, but his Texas blues don't stop! Johnny 'the Texas' Winter

The Contenders

11 Eric Clapton Eric Clapton Eric Patrick Clapton is an English rock and blues guitarist, singer and songwriter. He is the only three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: once as a solo artist and separately as a member of the Yardbirds and Cream. He has also been a member of Derek and the Dominos.

I think Eric should be in the top three.
