The Contenders: Page 3
Townshend should not be on this list. A completely different style than other guitarists from his era. Not "technically" great like Clapton or Beck and he and The Who played in a more "freestyle' manner when in concert. Pioneered the use of guitar feedback and his influence on hard rock and heavy metal can't be underestimated. Moon and Townshend were perfect for each other.
Should be at the top of the list. Townsend sucks big time.
I don't even know if I spelled his damn name correctly. The man was a joke. There were so many other great musicians in his era that it's hard to believe that "do you feel like I do" ever caught on. I wish there was a Frampton detector on my stereo in the car so it would immediately change the station before that noise ever started. And who the hell decided to turn that into a 15 minute live recording? As if the regular 3 minute version wasnt torture enough!
Listen to 16 year-old Peter Frampton killing it live with Humble Pie then get back to me on your opinion.
That is... If you are willing to drop your blinders & actually admit you liked what you heard.
What, why is Peter Frampton here?!
Listen to 16 year old Peter Frampton killing it live with his band Humble Pie, then get back to me.
He's a joke?.. Nah.. The jokes on you...
I'm a 30 Seconds to Mars fan but I just couldn't agree with him as no.6 in greatest guitarist of all time... He is a decent guitarist, not that great...
First of all, I'm a 30 Seconds to Mars fan... But I just couldn't agree when I see him on no.6 spot in greatest guitarist of all time.. He's a good guitarist but very decent..
What to say about the crator of modern Black Metal? Sure,his riffings are quite uncreative,but he has some nasty riffs(Freezing Moon,Life Eternal,Deathcrush...)Also,who ever sadi that he's great or one of the greatest guitarists ever? - DejanKalinic
Really popular recently in the power metal scene, and his songs are really great, however he has a lot of fanboys/fangirls who compare him to a lot of greater guitarists.
Don't get me wrong, he's good, but some people take it too far.
Easy 3 easy chords just power chords and treated like a guitar god when he is a billie joe armstrong wannabe another person who can't play guitar he also has a whiny ass voice which ruins blink 182 though blink was boring from the start anyway mark hoppus is a overrated bass player every body loves him when I am better at bass at him I mean look at dammit or whats my age again the bass lacks so much look at the chords your self and mark has his own signature bass screw blink 182 whether they are punk or not, punk does not always mean good blink 182 maybe punk back then but it was so distorted and unorganized and just plain goofy face it they can ruin anything
Mark Hoppus is good but tom delonge made songs I could play without even practicing.
First of all Blink 182 is crap and just power chords.
He is not overrated
Lol he's a notorious drunk-texting homosexual
Angus Young was on this list, but not this guy?
I can't even bring myself to call him a guitarist - he's that bad! Living off the back of Chris Martin, Buckland struggles to "mirror" the basics he is shown (he's NEVER wrote a thing) - his timing live is dreadful too. This guy must seriously pinch himself every morning!
EVERY single "Best Guitarists Ever" List, he's in the top 10 so much.
This really is true, He is just simply overrated. I don't care if you can solo or use B. C Rich Mockingbirds the whole time.
Prince is incredible! If anything, he's very much underrated! And considering the amount of instruments he plays, it's amazing!
One of the most influential guitarists of the 80"s and beyond... Enough said...
This guy is insane. Eric Clapton called him the greatest of all time - matt1
This guy seems way overrated after he died. no one would stop playing Purple Rain after he died.V 2 Comments
He's better than everyone on this list when it comes to writing songs but not at technicality. He is the best song writer and he sings an plays at the same time.
How's overrated? mr.kirk hammett is overrated, while this guy plays unique guitar songs. - zxm
Are you kidding me? Robert was so good, people actually believed he sold his soul to the devil.
I believe it was Keith Richards who said, "it sounded like two people playing",when he first heard this guy.
Yeah, sold his sold to the devil, and still sucked!
Robert was good for his time and he isn't overrated he might seem overrated because people made bullshit stories about him selling his soul
