The guitarist and often composer for Dream Theater, Petrucci knows how to play. He pours emotion into everything he does, and is incredibly technically gifted. Considering Randy Rhoads, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Rory Gallagher are no longer with us; Petrucci is my pick for best living guitarist (closely followed by Tony Iommi, Alex Lifeson and the original JP, Jimmy Page).
It was a tie between him and Tom Morello for meV 1 Comment
Don't vote for Chuck Berry cause he'll probably die the next day after you vote
Unbelievably underrated because he isn't the only guitarist in Pearl Jam. The things he does in a live show are incredible. Yes Eddie Veder is the face and voice of the group but McCready is the soul of the sound.
Insanely talented young guitarist
Tornado Of Souls, Hanger 18, Holy Wars, listen to them.
This is insane that he is this low
Easily top 20...His versatility, and smooth transition is awesome...Listen to him with DMB, the TOP grossing touring band for the last 15 yrs...The guy is hands down BAD ASS>..
The list seemed so much incomplete without him
Are you serious that he wasn't even on this list... Come on people!
This guy is the 1#, period.
No list is complete without the Spaceman... Should have been in the top 1010
Should not be on this list---he sucks!
As usual, no respect. One of the greatest guitarists alive. Easily Top 20. Real musicianship, not pseudo/mimicry.
He is just the best Guitarist from ALL TIME.
