The Contenders: Page 8

141 Jonny Greenwood Jonny Greenwood Jonathan Richard Guy, professionally known as Johnny Greenwood is an English musician and composer, mostly known for his role as the one of the lead guitarists and main keyboardist of the English alternative rock band Radiohead.
142 Mike Oldfield
143 James Hetfield James Hetfield James Alan Hetfield was born on August 3, 1963. He is an American musician, singer and songwriter known for being the co-founder, lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for the American heavy metal band Metallica.

Actually, he gets so much hate for being such a talented, badass, diligent guitarist (that does not have a tweeny voice) in favor of Ariana Grande/Arianators, Justin Bieber/Beliebers, Taylor Swift/Swifties, 5 Seconds of Summer/Scones, Miley Cyrus/Smilers and One Direction/Directioners. REAL MUSIC for the win!

145 Joe Perry Joe Perry Anthony Joseph "Joe" Perry is the lead guitarist, backing and occasional lead vocalist, and contributing songwriter for the American rock band Aerosmith.

He's a great guitarist and songwriter. So great and not enough credit. I don't see Aerosmith without him and Steven Tyler.

146 Derek St. Holmes

Most underrated rock singer ever

147 Gary Hoey

Gary Hoey has a lot of good music, mainly instrumental. He's also covered all kinds of music from all kinds of musicians, and he does it so well. He even does Christmas covers. I love his cover for "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch". I also love his covers for "Frankenstein" and Wipe Out". He's such a great guitarist.

148 Dave Meniketti - Y&T
149 Matthias Jabs

Seriously nowhere to be found? This guy had one of the best tones in the 80s... Great memorable solos... Hard to imagine the most famous Scorpions songs like Rock you like a hurricane without his solos

150 Noel Gallagher Noel Gallagher Noel Thomas David Gallagher is an English musician, singer, songwriter and guitarist. He served as the lead guitarist, co-lead vocalist and principal songwriter of the rock band Oasis.
151 Mikael Akerfeldt Mikael Akerfeldt Lars Mikael Åkerfeldt is a Swedish musician, prominently known as the lead vocalist, guitarist, and primary songwriter of progressive death metal band Opeth, as well as being the former vocalist of death metal supergroup Bloodbath.
152 Frank Zappa Frank Zappa Frank Vincent Zappa was an American musician, songwriter, composer, record producer, actor and filmmaker.

What a shame nobody even knows who he is. Search Peaches en Regalia for a small intro to his 80+ albums. One of the most prolific and talented guitarists/composers the world has ever known.

153 Daron Malakian Daron Malakian Daron Vartan Malakian is an Armenian–American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer.
154 Paco De Lucia Paco De Lucia Francisco Gustavo Sánchez Gomez, known as Paco de Lucía, was a Spanish virtuoso flamenco guitarist, composer and producer.
155 Wes Borland Wes Borland Wesley Louden "Wes" Borland is an American rock musician and artist. He is best known as the current guitarist and backing vocalist of the nu metal band Limp Bizkit and as the lead vocalist of the industrial rock band Black Light Burns.

Even though I don't like Limp Bizkit, I think Wes is a great guitarist.

156 Alexi Laiho Alexi Laiho

160 Muhammed Suicmez Muhammed Suicmez Muhammed Suiçmez was born in Karlsruhe, Germany, to Turkish immigrants. He is the frontman and guitarist of the German technical death metal band Necrophagist.

Listen to Symbolic in Theory, Advanced Corpse Tumor, Only Ash Remains and Fermented Offal Discharge. Some very passionate, intense, powerful solos. He wrote ALL the instruments for Necro's first album and it is incredible.
