A very classy gentleman, played amazing guitar and wrote some incredible songs. Most certainly he will be sadly missed and never forgotten.
Influenced more people to take up the guitar than any other human. Vastly underrated because of the bands he was in.
My favorite person in the whole wide world... George will be missed by MillionsV2 Comments
Jeff Healey deserves to be on the top 10 list. I play the guitar backwards and upside down I've never seen anything like it in my life. he was definitely wild on the guitar!
Great live guitar man...
Taught many of the others.
He never received the respect he should have. RIP Johnny
Heard some extremely expressive playing many years ago, thought it was Sammy Hagar, but found out later it was Johnny Winter...left an indelible impression. Thanks for the memories Johnny.
As far as a guitarist who sang and played, I put him right there with Hendrix. When Clapton goes I'd say those three in any particular order. I don't see any of these other guys being in the same class, particularly for Rock N' Roll. If there's a Rock N' Roll Valhalla Johnny and Jimi are cuttin' heads right now to see who gets to sit on the throne!
Not sure how you pick the best of this list, but Hedges is easily top 5 if it comes to technical virtuosity.
Made the most beautiful and complex songs I've ever heard.
The best thing to come of 'youll by a country mile, nary a week goes past without hearing some of Ronno's work on the radio, much underrated much loved amd very much missed :-(
I'm A Man, 25 or 6 to 4, Song of the Evergreens, the list goes on. Put TK in a regular rock band and this argument goes another direction. Was one of Hendrix' favorite guitarists.V1 Comment
Rock isn t only a kind of music but also a way of life. It is shown in his songs and unique musical phrases which reveal a cool, sensitive bohemian troubadour creating that famous J.J. cALE atmosphere which made him famous and musically immortal.
Simply the greatest of all time & always underrated
Very impressive, but all too brief a career that was meant for greatness.
