Amazing electric guitarists with unique finger picking style. If in doubt listen to the live version of "I'm so afraid" from the dance album. Incredible solos on songs like tango in the night, isn't it midnight, go your own way, this is the time etc. Check out the live version of sisters of the moon from the 1982 mirage tour, truly electric!

130 Keith Richards Keith Richards Keith Richards is an English musician—primarily a guitarist—singer, songwriter, best-selling memoirist, and founding member of the rock band The Rolling Stones.

"Keef" isn't even on the list? YGBSM! He'd be the first to admit he's not a "great player." Heck, even I can play many of his greatest riffs. But they're HIS riffs. He damn near INVENTED rock-n-roll rhythm guitar. Keith changed the world of electric guitar and is still rocking' after over 50 years on the charts! His syncopation and sense of timing are unparalleled - it takes a genius to make near perfection sound loose. And one of the nicest guys in the biz.

131 Billy Duffy

The greatest all time innovative guitarist to come out of the UK. Such a distinctive style and sound which is most important. Many guitarists have a similar sound and tone to others. This guy got me hooked on the sound of the guitar from a young age and I have tried to find others in a similar vein to no avail and I own over 2000 rock/metal CD's and have followed the scene since the mid 80's. A totally under estimated guitarist in my opinion. Long live The Cult.

The greatest riff-writer ever. Billy Duffy is the greatest British guitarist ever, and if you don't believe me, buy 'Sonic Temple'. Duffy writes amazing riffs and solos, and although he's got blinding speed, he knows how to use it with economy. - Floods

Truly amazing it is a shame he didn't get much exposure in the US. In England the Cult was number one for a decade.

Check out the track Love, play it loud!
