Not a guitar hero in the conventional sense of the word, nevertheless, Johnny Marr is one of the most influential guitarists of the past twenty + years. His arpaeggiated leads are very difficult to play, and when he breaks loose with a guitar solo, the sounds are unrecognisable as having come from a guitar - Floods
How is he not higher. He is the greatest guitarist to come from 80's music. I find it hard to find the reasons why he is lower than some other guitarists on this list but you know. Great gigs as well.
This is ridiculous that he is so low on this list, every song he's in, even his solo stuff is just so great! Amazing guitarist, deserves better
What his music is so unbelievably clean he should be in the top 10
Tom merello is awesome. If any one has herd of "Fist full of steel" his beginning guitar solo is th 2nd best one ever his first great solo is "wake up" that's has a great solo plus he is great at scratching almost no one does scratching witch puts him in like 1 place so tom merello is way beet er that's that one guy.
he should be up there on the top number one he's the greatest guitarist ever at least to me you'll be always in my heart
I like matthias jabs licks.. he play the guitar so fast.. I want matthias jabs to be the greatest electric guitarist.. I hope it become truth..
Some pretty amazing solo's. Great live as well as studio albums
Mike Campese is awesome! He is so versatile and can shred as well. Plus, he is very melodic
A great guitarist and showman.
Why so low he is the teacher of all this guys
Should ABSOLUTELY be higher on the list
He requires no introduction.
Why is he 67th? C.C. is great! A great guitarist, yes, but also A really down to earth guy. He's the guitarist that replaced Slash in Poison... I remember Slash saying he was in Poison but he was kicked out/Quit because he didn't fit the "Glam look" but C.C. did! What a cool dude! :D
He is from Creedence Clearwater Revival. Just listen to Up Around The Bend or Bad Moon Rising. The most complete electric guitarist in existence.
What the hell, even Kurt cobain is higher than him? Marty is better than like 98% of the above
A whole new way of playing guitar. Very very unique.
How is he not on this list?! Arguably the most talented rock musician of the 21st century, this guy can do it all - solos that leave you asking "HOW?! ", the catchiest riffs in modern alt-metal, and he can sing too. Listen to Alter Bridge's "Fortress" album, he ditches pedals for the most part and just shatters your eardrums with his wicked soloing.V1 Comment
Becker could smoke Malmsteen, Gilbert and Van Halen by the time he was 16. Sadly, he contracted ALS before he even reached 20. - Floods
Just listen to Journey's guitar solos, they are extraordinary every time. I would definitely put this guy in my top ten.
One of the greatest musicians and guitarists that has ever lived on this planet!
Number 87? Are you kidding me? His melodic intensity, his versatility, his tremendous song writing ability and unique identifiable style should land him in the top ten! PERIOD!
Number 87? How about somewhere in the top ten instead? And my personal favorite of all time! There are just no words to describe this man!
Santana doesn't call him " Vortex " for nothing!
The Rolling Stones are the world's greastest rock and roll band, so they obviously have the best guitarists!
