One of the most inspiring musicians out there. Deep variety, sound, quality, versatility. All of his work is unique.V 1 Comment
It genuinely scares me that anybody would put Mick Thompson over Eric Clapton.
The graffiti in 1960's London alleyways said it all: "Clapton is God".
Man he is so underrated :(
He should be on top 5 :(
Tears don't fall, shows what he is
Just for the madness he has got, I would rank him in top ten. My personal favorite though.
Haha, Disturbed's my favorite band and I love Danny to death. However, he should not be in the the top 20, let alone the top 10. That's not to say he's bad guitarist. He's an excellent guitarist; the man learned how to play just by watching someone on T.V. and he down-picks exclusively. Considering this list is bad enough as is, I'll support the home-team and give the guy my vote
This guy was doing taps before Eddie Van Halen was even around he was also the first to use the wireless on the guitar as well as the first to do the backward guitar sound he was way ahead of his time and was the first after Hendrix died to do that style of music as well as some Hendrix songs on the guitar! No one sounds as close as Hendrix than this guy can if he wants! He also builds his own amps and effects pedals to meet his personal sounds and needs!
Like I said in the remix, he is not really a lead guitarist. A band that has only one guitarist doesn't really mean he has to be lead guitarist. Lead guitar is more complex than rhythm guitar. Rhythm guitar usually means some notes played repeatedly. That means rhythm guitarists mostly play riffs. While lead guitarists play more than just riffs. They play solos, use more techniques - pull off and hammer on, bending, difficult licks etc. Johnny Ramone could play lead guitar. But he did rhythm part more than lead part. So he shouldn't be so high on this list. And its not just for him. Also for a lot of punk guitarists. They use more rhythm guitar part than lead part. - zxm
