65 Mick Taylor Mick Taylor Michael Kevin Taylor is an English musician, best known as a former member of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers and the Rolling Stones.

Must be in the Top 10. Listen to the mournful guitar sounds on most if the ballads of Sticky Fingers. His ability to capture the right note and sustain it add great emotion to those Stones songs over four albums 1969 - 1972.

69 Mick Mars Mick Mars

Motley Crue guitarist... One of the best ones ever!

70 Peter Green Peter Green

Another great British blues player one of the founders of Fleetwood Mac

Playing with that subtile feeling, he outmasters the king of blues, B.B. King. He belongs in the upper quarter to my opinion.

71 Peter Frampton Peter Frampton

Yes why not. Frampton Comes Alive and Do You Feel Like I do. Great British guitarist.

Peter Frampton should be in the top 10 best guitarist of rock!

I think he should be in the top 10 best guitarist in rock!

Top 10. This list is way off!

iron maiden guitarist, the greatest heavy metal band in history. -

Why does iron maiden have 3 guitarrists when murray is better then the 3 of them combined? Definitely dave murray deserves more credit for his mindblowing solos!

74 Tomo Miličević Tomo Miličević

TOMO is the best rock guitarist ever alive! He's the lead guitar of the band 30 seconds to mars. He plays with pasion and dynamisim. I can watch him play all the time. He's so tallented and have great skills. I've never heard a guitarist that plays better than him. He also have a great sense of humour, he's so funny. He always gives the band new ideas about music. He plays different instruments:
Guitar, Violin, Bass and Keyboards.

75 Keith Scott

It 'a great guitarist very underrated.

76 Rick Nielsen

Massively underrated guitarist. Like a demented cross between Jeff Beck and Pete Townshend - great tone and power.

Rick is like his group - incredibly overlooked and awesome.
