Why isn't he even mentioned here? Ask almost any picker on this list what they think of his playing and he will be rated, if not the best, very close. He started finger picking and tons of lead guitarists from around the world and from many genres have studied his style of play and some of the people on the list have gone to study under him.
He played most of the complex part! and WHILE SINGING! come on guys!
Front man of Television, though not exactly an outgoing guy it would seem. Brilliant and highly original guitarist. Unusually doesn't believe in distortion as a rule..
Agree with the visitor, agreed that he sings and plays guitar, but mainly rhythm guitar, not lead guitar. - zxm
He's never been the lead guitarist of Radiohead.
He has done some singing, here and there, and his voice actually isn't bad. He's also an amazing guitarist and songwriter. He more than well deserves a spot on this list.
Not much of a lead singer but whatever floats your boat.
He's the best guitarist for me... he's awesome playing the video afterlife..
The list is about musicians who are singers and LEAD guitarists at the same time, so I don't get why James Hetfield is up there at No. 1! The guy's great, but he's not a lead guitarist.
Even more surprising is to see that Adrian Belew doesn't even appear on this list at all and 61 others appeared before I added him just now! Just listen to him sing while playing Frame by Frame or Three of a Perfect Pair, this guy is insane!
Massively underrated both as a singer and a guitarist!
Leader singer of queen, amazing vocalist, need him on it - andnolan07
This kinda doesn't make sense here but it doesn't matter because he's so awesome
Amazing singer, decent guitarist, but no lead guitarist.
Lead singer, not lead guitarist. - zxmV1 Comment
Awesome rock vocalist and yes he did play guitar on one song
If you ever see this man live you will understand. He has one of the best voices I've heard, he can pump out hits like nobody's business, and although he is no Hendrix or Clapton he has always held his own with his contemporaries on lead guitar too.
