Johnny is better than steve jones.Even Billie's better than Steve Jones
Johnny is so good
The best and most original sound as yet. He could adapt to any other genre, without much effort, and I also speak of Jazz, to which Ginn has been linked. It's my humble opinion that Hendrix would have found the doctor quite interesting, given a time machine and a few minutes to listen. Not that it would be the thing for Hendrix, though listen, yes!
I was going to vote Greg Ginn, but then I remembered the solos that Dr. Know ripped on the Bad Brains self-titled album, especially Big Takeover and Right Brigade. Those solos are just damn awesome.
This guy is better than Hendrix!
Steve's guitar playing has changed my life and continues to be a resounding influence to me.
Listen to 'dry ice' 'only of you' 'judges daughter' 'one for the razorbacks' 'jesus of suburbia' 'still breathing' 'give me novacaine' 'basket case'. You'll eventually get what I'm getting to here
He is the worlds best guitarist ever! He plays the solo's with so blues sound!
Dude how is he not number 1? He has made the greatest guitar riffs ever like Holiday,Brain Stew,Geek Stink Breath, Hitchin a ride and more I don't think he should be number 5 he should be number 1
Listen to the solo on wake me up when September ends... it's moving
"Belongs way higher in this list way underrated and never skimped on precision or agression."
Just badass! Don't need to say any more.
Best punk guitarist ever.
The best by a long shot. Innovative and has a great feel for his craft.
Mick Jones is probably the reason The Clash had so many great songs. His funky and bluesy guitar playing gave the clash that unique edge like on London Calling.
He has made some of the best punk rock guitar riffs on songs like London Calling
And Tommy Gun
It's rare to listen to a punk rock record and think "Wow, what a good and creative guitarist.". Kudos to East Bay Ray for his "weird" solos and cool riffs.
Most catchy, amazing melodic riffs... Exactly what you need from punk
Are you serious, Spike Cassidy from D.R.I. needs to be on this list.
Spike has got more punk heritage than this guy will have in a thousand
His riffs are hella good!
Possibly the most underrated guitarist in history.
Played in the germs!
Are you kidding me? Stephen is number 1 and it's not close.
Doyle would beat the snot out of all other guitarist on the list.
Doyle is ultra chad to not test his might for he is the best go punk rock chad
