Best Guitarists Ever

HE IS NOT A REGULAR GUITARIST. The name here already explains it. Its Bassbaba. Not guitarbaba. - zxm
Can't believe what's happening on earth...Why is this GUITAR WIZARD on this number? He should be at top 5 at least.
Why the hell is he so low!?!? 934? He deserves to be top 20 AT LEAST. He can play with both his hands at once. People actually need to start actually listening to people like MAB
You... Have... GOT... To... Be... Kidding! 940th place?!? MASSIVE under-appreciation for a great rock lead-G. As a huge cars fan in the late 70s, I'd have him in the top 20 or 30, but shouldn't be outside the top 100 on any list.
If you don't know him, educate yourself.
Accused of recording at half speed and always proves the haters wrong. BLISTERING speed, huge riffs, sweep picking to the max, masterful song composition, sick guitars, legendary sound production, and amazing guitar tones. He may not be a legend, but he's easily one of the best guitarists I've ever heard. But let's not forget his counterpart, Miles Baker, who is a perfect carbon copy of Lucas Mann.
Just listen to a Rings Of Saturn song and try to tell me that Lucas Mann isn't an amazing guitarist. He should be so much higher on this list
Great leads probably sickest I ever heard
How is he so far from Number One?
Just listen to "Space Oddity" or the 1973 "Life on Mars" and you'll understand his guitar playing skills.
Provided the signature sound for the "classic" Alice Cooper recordings. GREAT (and apparently under-rated) guitarist!
Cliff Em All
Does awesome metal covers - Giiggle
He kind of reminds me of Gary Hoey. He can take any tune and really rock it with the guitar. ' guitar god. He more than well deserves a spot on this list. Should be a bit higher.
Great guitarist. Majorly underrated. Did the Dio album dream evil and in my opinion the guitar playing is great on that album. - luke_cody_03
In addition to that the first Giuffria (ex-Angel) album with the really big hit on it and good all the way through.
Early Overkill stuff is legendary
Merely listen to 'Flying High'.
Yeah, but the riff in Tomorrow is Yesterday is even better
Listen to I've Waited
He's my favorite guitarist and overall rock star, you're awesome Adam
Tony MacAlpine (born August 29, 1960 in Springfield, Massachusetts) is a guitar and keyboard virtuoso who came on to the neo classical/shred scene in the mid 80s. He later experimented with jazz rock fusion and combined it with his classical training, as can be heard on Chromaticity (2001). He has released many solo albums in his career. Some of his other projects include CAB, Planet X, Steve Vai and Ring of Fire. - harrykarV 1 Comment
