64 Kim Simmonds

How could you forget one of the best from Savoy Brown?

65 Tab Benoit

If you get the chance to see Tab live, you won't regret it!

66 Mark Knopfler Mark Knopfler Mark Freuder Knopfler is a British singer, songwriter, guitarist, record producer and film score composer.

A truly great guitarist and song writer and should be rated amongst the very best.

67 Gugun

This guy is from Indonesia. He can rain it down on you. Far East Blues Experience is a terrific collection of tunes. An unknown who should be known.

68 Lonnie Mack

Every guitar player on this list knows Lonnie Mack. One of the cleanest players around. Way ahead of his time.

69 Michael Burks
70 Joanne Shaw Taylor Joanne Shaw Taylor

AAyoung girl who plays with the ferocity and skill of someone twice her age. Anyone who makes you stop what your doing, mesmerized, and say "tear it up girl! " has something going for them. Listen to the guitar prowess on her album "Almost Always Never." Hell in the song "Jealousy" she's unstoppable. She once said "to be top female guitarist you have to be Hendrix like." I'm pretty sure Hendrix would tip his hat.

71 Mick Ralphs

Mick Ralphs was the guitarist for Mott the Hopple and the current guitarist of bad company

72 Ronnie Baker Brooks

Ronnie learned his chops from Buddy Guy and Buddy's friend Lonnie Brooks... Ronnies father. RBB grew with all the Chicago blues greats during the past 35 years or so. Check him out some time, you won't be disappointed.

73 Big Bill Broonzy
74 Lead Belly

Real blues with a great blues name.

75 Jellybean Johnson
76 Taj Mahal Taj Mahal
77 Matt Murphy

How can Matt Guitar Murphy be left off this list?

78 Furry Lewis
79 Rusty Burns

Look him up on YouTube. Lefty AND upside down player founded Point Blank. Also watch him in his current band "Rusty Burns and Big Wampum".

80 Steve Gaines

Heart and soul of Lynyrd Skynyrd until his death in 1978.
