Ed really deserves to be voted, but so do the others:) Not all of them (just my opinion, if you don't agree just ignore it) of course. It's hard to vote. Such a shame that the most of those talented people are dead. Excuse my English...

54 Steve Vai Steve Vai Steven Siro "Steve" Vai is an American guitarist, composer, singer, songwriter, and producer, born and raised on Long Island, New York.

Steve Vai is clearly one of the greatest musicians still alive today. Not only for his technicality on his instrument of choice, but also for the complexity in his general music theory. SALES do not determine a good musician, it is a persons understanding of music theory and to me, someone who stays true to the music. It is not about record sales, it is about what music is to you, and what your interpretation of it is. Steve Vai has always done exactly what he wanted to do and played what he wanted to play; meaning sales are not the basis of his inspiration.
