Best Guitarists Ever « see full list

Steve Lukather


Steve Lukather is tasteful, creative and emotive with excellent timing and creativity. I really can't think of a guitarist of his genre that I've heard who is "better". He has SO much feeling in those two hands when he plays. Honestly, this rating is a joke. The man plays his balls off live - his solos are a song within a song. Way too many to even begin to rank, but Hero With 1000 Eyes Live is monumental. Like I said, the solo is a song - it is fierce, symmetrical (timing again). emotional and musical. Thanks Luke.
Pf steve lukather at 73? Really?
Oh gosh.. this because it's a list based of based on sympathy!
He is NOT only the Toto's guitar player...
If take a listen to the solo stuff of this musician you will be blown away!
Not talking about the NEVER ENDING list of sessions he made over the years.
It will AMAZE you to discover how many songs you know, that he plays the guitar in!
Take a look at the Discography AND most of all, enjoy his natural talent
Guthrie Govan, John Petrucci, Buckethead, Alex Lifeson, Mark Knopfler, Marty Friedman, Jason Becker and Jeff Beck are all better guitarists than good ol' Steve, but other than those, no guitarist on this list ever outshines this genius of a frontman of Toto.

The most versatile and soulful guitar player on the world. He should be in top 5 even though I would put him as N°1. He's also one of the most hard-working session musicians on the planet. He has played on over 1200 records. All famous guitar players like Slash, Kirk Hammett,... Got nothing on him. He's definitely on a much higher level.
Steve is one of the best guitar players on the planet period! He should be in the top 10! Steve has learned from the best influences around and put his own flavor on the instrument which has rarely been seen. It is rare that a player can shred on the instrument but still have the best taste and feel in his solos that can really influence the heart. Love ya Steve and keep up the great work!
This guy should at least be in top 15!! He's a genius with that guitar, a true sessionist. He can play any style, never mind the Toto (even though he makes some great solos there) but he is also a studiomusician, played on over 1200 cds!! He is a true guitar hero!
Not many guitarists can play both fast and soulful at the same time. Steve Lukather is a true marksman in the guitar business!
Luke should be in the top 10. There are several names that don't belong on this list. Prince is an amazing musician-composer-artist but not a guitar god. Same with Curt Cobain - another artist that had a huge positive impact on music but far from a great guitarist.
I've seen many people from #1 to #73 and it makes me smile. Steve Lukather is obviously my best choice. He is a man, and not a machine. He plays with the heart and soul, not only technique or speed or something like that. I truly respect him as a musician, as a man, as a friend of mine as he is.
Respect to this guy. He is the reason many guitarists even start to play guitar.
A guitarist who played for the biggest, improviser, composer, virtuoso, he has influenced millions of guitarists and is a reference to the guitar sound until 30 years. Just listen to his discography to be convinced. It must be in the top 5
Without doubt one of the worlds greatest guitarists. 82nd on this list is a little strange he should be much much higher, at least top 10 in my humble opinion
A true master - awesome guitarist and super smooth, soulful vocalist. Checkout the Toto live in Paris 1990 videos... Steve, I salute you
There are some astonishingly gifted guitarists in this list but when the likes of jeff beck, schon, Hendrix and what must the biggest injustice, "Luke" @ 82 and all below slash... Are you kidding me? Please get real
Luke is better than all others. Those who don't know this simply don't know who he is, mostly because he is a humble human being. Google him and do some research and you will quickly change your tune.
Simply one of the best guitarist on the planet...his contribution to music over the past 30 plus years is phenomenal...bottom line. And he's a a hell of a good person...
He belong at number 1.
Best guitarist ever. His version of 'While my guitar gently wheeps' just sends chills down my spine
Le Patron! Every show is an unique event! So soulful, so moving, so generous, so easy, so kind! He's unique in his way of playing and I would never ever miss one of his gigs in France!
Not only a master on the guitar... Steve Lukather has one of the best male singing voices I've ever heard... and his song wrtiting... out of this world! Luv ya Luke!
Luke is my idol!... long live Luke!... he's done some champion stuff over the years... he should be top 20 at the very least...
Steve can play anything on guitar better than anyone! Most under rated player out there!
There's probably only 3 or 4 people on the list that could deserve to be listed before Steve... why is he down here at 80?
The most versatile guitarist ever. Jazz-rock-pop, even metal... You name it, Lukather delivers it. Also a very talented songwriter and a pianist.
See and hear his technique... What songs? More than 1.000...
The most well rounded and emotive rock player who can also sing well and write awesome rock songs.
