Lightbulb Who are the top Ten guitar players in rock?

My opinion only, I would have to say,Jimi Hendrix, Joe satriani, Yngwie J. Malmsteen, Steve Vai, Jake E.Lee, Ritchie Blackmore, Tony Iommi, Angus Young, Michael Schenker and Eddie VanHalen! You have to give it up for these guys!

A fantastic top ten,you can't argue with those names.This is a hard one but my favourites are Frank Zappa, Jimmy Page, Tommy Bolin, Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour, Eddie Hazel, Ted Nugent, Eddie Van Halen, Tony Iommi and Paul Kossoff. I could easily list another ten that would be equally valid, but i admire these particularly because they have thrilled me and amazed me with their powers of innovation in equal measures. ps. JJ would definately get into my top 20!

Nice to see Bernie Torme in there! I've got a bunch of Bernie's albums, "Electric Gypsies" and "Wild Irish" being my faves of his RetroWrek CD's. And of course his Gillan material. He's a very underrated guitarist, in my book! And a hell of a nice guy, to boot.

I remember seeing a Bloom County cartoon strip years ago, in which a scene from an Ozzy concert was imagined, and in the scene Ozzy screams to his guitarist to do a solo. He says "Take it, Bernie..." Either the cartoonist is an Ozzy fan in the know, or it's a total coincidence. Either way, it was funny to see.

Cheers...Todd

Howie who? Howie Long? Howie Mandel?

Man, I'd maybe have to shuffle some players around to fit Rory in there. Can't overlook him.

in no particular order and far from complete.....

Gary Moore
Scott Gorham
Steve Stevens
Adrian Belew
Jeff Buckley
Clem Clempson
Chris Spedding
Dave Kilminster
James Dean Bradfield
Steve Hackett

and since 10 is not enough....
Jimmy Page, Richie Kotzen, Robin Trower, Roine Stolt, John Mitchell, Allan Holdsworth, Steve Howe, Brian Robertson, Eric Bell, John Sykes, Snowy White - I could save one rank in the TOP 10 and put all Thin Lizzy guitar players in one place

This is too hard.....

Cheers,
Christian

I'm shocked that two people named someone so obscure as the guitarist from Nektar. Show-offs.

That's exactly why I didn't list Roye originally. I didn't want someone thinking I was padding my list with obscure names to make myself look cool. But sure enough....someone (todd) made the comment anyway

Nektar was'nt a big hit in their homeland of England, but were huge in the U.S. (the midwest and east coast anyway) and Germany where they based themselves out of.

No matter what genre of progressive music you're interested in, there's a pretty cool site that covers it all.....

Well, since we have made a mini-topic out of Nektar, I will recommend their 2004 album, "Evolution" to all out there. And, to show off some more, I am one of the people thanked by the band in the insert of the CD. They even sent an autographed copy to those who helped with the production cost of the disc. AND for those on the West Coast, Nektar will be at BajaProg in March of 2006 along with Mostly Autumn and Marillion among others.
Nektar may have aged physically, but they are still in 70s form on stage and, though only two originals remain (Roye and Ron Howden), they are still one of the greatest bands on the planet. If you get a chance, check out the band live or grab the Nektar Classics Live DVD and give it a spin or two, you will not be disappointed.

Mark, don't even get me started - that joke is unfortunately rooted in the whining by all the idiots who are trying to ruin the holiday season for the rest of us in recent years

In this litigious age, people are doing their damndest to rain on the parade, clogging the legal system with trumped up complaints about having Christmas ram-rodded down their throats. Hogwash. I adore the Christmas holiday. It's not a religious holiday for me. Rather, it's a time to reflect on the past year, gather together with my loved ones, and celebrate the occasion of our gathering, which is all too infrequent. It's a time for joy and charity, and for rekindling contact with those people that have been out of touch for too long. Do I feel resentment if someone praises the Lord on Christmas, or if my banker wishes me Merry Christmas? No. Nor would I care if a Jewish postal worker wished me a Happy Hannukah. I can at least appreciate that he wished me well, and offer the same wishes in return. I realize that the holiday is a special time for that person, and I don't think any less of them for it. Why can't everyone else do the same?

Ok, deep breath...and exhale. Sorry for the rant, maybe that should have been a new topic by itself. lol

So in closing - MERRY CHRISTMAS, everyone! Happy Hannukah! And a Happy New Year!

Cheers...Todd

A funny story that Punky reminded me of....
About eight or so years ago, I was looking for a 'handyman' to do some things around my house, as I have trouble changing light bulbs A young man in a beat up 70-something AMC auto pulls up, and lo it is my handyman...who happens to be Bobby Blaze who replaced Punky Meadows in Angel, and was at that time playing with Lillian Axe. He had some great road stories, but the battered old car just made me laugh a little. You think of "rock stars" in limos and not Hornets. By the way, he was a much better guitarist than handyman

And to Todd...I agree with you 100%, and I personally will only offer Merry Christmas Wishes to anyone, and if they don't like it, well that's just too bad. I could go on for hours about this kind of stuff, but I will save that for the right venue.

To all of you then, A MERRY CHRISTMAS and a wonderful and soulful 2006.

Anybody ever hear of Joe Stump?
Honest; that's the guy's name.

I bought a CD because the album cover said that he was
the world's greatest guitar shredder. I don't know if a
gazillion notes a minute qualifies, but this guy is it.
But you have to look at the list of song titles to recognize
something as familiar as "Happy Birthday" because........

........as the Emperor of Austria, Joseph II, said to Mozart,
(in the movie "Amedeus") after listening to a new opera,
"There are just too many notes."

Does that make somebody a great guitarist?
Don't ask me. But he probably....IS....the fastest.

Love the cartoon........
Too true, in too many cases.
But "if you play your cards right"
it can be........

HAPPY.......
Go to church on Christmas Eve,
and when they shut off all the electric lights,
and there's light from just one candle,
and then you pass along the candle-light to people in each row,
until everybody's candle is lit,
while everybody is singing "Silent Night"
and you're trying to sing along while NOT CRYING like a weenie.........

And you try to finagle in, a verse of "Happy Birthday, Baby Jesus" too.
In English..........or possibly Finnish? (Ha, ha.)


Bottom line...............that's Christmas for me.
