"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.
