Amazing electric guitarists with unique finger picking style. If in doubt listen to the live version of "I'm so afraid" from the dance album. Incredible solos on songs like tango in the night, isn't it midnight, go your own way, this is the time etc. Check out the live version of sisters of the moon from the 1982 mirage tour, truly electric!

130John Squire

Not even on the list? Seriously! He is an amazing guitarist

131Keith RichardsKeith Richards is an English musician—primarily a guitarist—singer, songwriter, best-selling memoirist, and founding member of the rock band The Rolling Stones.

"Keef" isn't even on the list? YGBSM! He'd be the first to admit he's not a "great player." Heck, even I can play many of his greatest riffs. But they're HIS riffs. He damn near INVENTED rock-n-roll rhythm guitar. Keith changed the world of electric guitar and is still rocking' after over 50 years on the charts! His syncopation and sense of timing are unparalleled - it takes a genius to make near perfection sound loose. And one of the nicest guys in the biz.

132Dan DoneganDan Donegan is an American musician and guitarist for heavy metal band Disturbed. Donegan began playing guitar as a teenager and eventually formed a band called Vandal, which was an 1980s-style hair band.V1 Comment
