The Rolling Stones are the world's greastest rock and roll band, so they obviously have the best guitarists!

87 Ian D'Sa

In my opinion the best Canadian guitarist at the moment, at least deserves to be on the list somwhere

88 Jukka Tolonen
89 Steve Howe Steve Howe Stephen James "Steve" Howe is an English musician and songwriter. He is best known as the guitarist in the progressive rock group Yes.

Why he isn't at no. 1 is beyond me. Too many idiots on this site I suspect.

90 Hank Marvin

Inspired many after him... apache..a classic...& now gypsy jazz...a living legend.

He's surely one of the best. This guy played with Guns N Roses but he joined Nikki Sixx's band (Sixx: A.M.).If you listen to his solos in Rise and Live Forever, you'll understand why he's on this list.

He has his own unique sound and style that goes beyond hair band music

Listen to Mr. Scary or heaven sent and see what you think

96 Syu

With speed and creativity, he might as well be able to play with hide (if he was still alive). Not only that, Syu's been creating music notes for drums, bass and obviously guitars.

97 Vivian Campbell Vivian Campbell Vivian Patrick Campbell is a Northern Irish rock guitarist. He came to prominence in the early 1980s as a member of Dio, and has been a member of Def Leppard since 1992.
