Greatest Rock Guitarists of All Timerodoglez11
The Contenders: Page 6
he died in his prime, another guitarist we all miss, who knows what he could've done had he lived. saw him in concert twice. the gorge in george back in the 90s
one of the greatest concerts I've ever seen. -
The Mastermind of all Blues/Rock. He played everything out on his guitar. No drugs needed, just pure skill.
I agree with a lot of these picks but really Stevie belongs at the very least in top ten!
Really? Stevie not in the top 5? Or ten for that matter? The marque of of a virtuoso is that the style and sound cannot be replicated - ever listen to the tribute for Stevie? Not one of those fabulous guitarists- no not even Eric Capton cannot replicate Stevie' s style or sound. Give me a break - this is a laugh...V 6 Comments
You joking, right - BJ Armstrong is before the person who could have probably reinvented guitar playing? I don't even want to start...
Petrucci is THE best guitar player. Simply he is most technical, brings most variations AND is a great song writer and composer. Small detail is that he co founder of worlds best and most sophisticated band, DT.
What? 116 are yoy kidding me?
What the hell is wrong with people? Yeah, I do love RHCP, Green Day, A7x, n AC/DC, but there is absolutely no waaayyy he is behind the guitarists of the bands mentioned above... like come on..A7x was inspired by DT... conclusion:- this list is STUPID!V 1 Comment
AWESOME GUITARIST AND AMAZING RAPPER HU4L
Alice Cooper... Schools Out, Eighteen
He created an entire style of music it's not how difficult his music was to play but then again I have never heard anyone come close to making a jag sound like Kurt.
Kurt Cobain is the best.
Should be there in the top 10 at least.
Should be in the top 10! An Amazing guitar player who was about being creative on the guitar and not a boring virtuso.
He sucks.V 2 Comments
Motorhead Forever! Phil is amazing. Underrated forsure. Deserves to be on any greatest guitarist list up in the top 10.
Guitarist, famous for playing with artists like Shania TwainV 1 Comment
Sting, the rock legend, more famous as the lead singer of rock band Police
The Police's guitarist... He is underrated!
Guitarist to be noted.. His guitar ability, tapping, sweep picking and amazing guitar solos rank him in the top 10.. !V 1 Comment
One of thE former Guitarists of Hammerfall. He is totally wicked.
...Should be higher than Kerry King, on this list. King was good...but, Hanneman was the real mastermind behind all their licks (and I don't even like Slayer lol...I just recognize talent when I see it)
By far one of the best. This guy can play lead guitar and rhythm at the same time. Try and play one of the early Smiths songs!
Go Listen to "What Difference Does it Make" Right now. Case closed.
He is the father of guitar and deserves the number 1 spot without any doubt!
As long as this list is Bernie Marsden should be on here. Whitesnake, and UFO another great British blues guitarist.
The great Mountain guitarist. Mississippi Queen
