Your Favour Rock Guitarist...

    I have so many.

    Jimmy Shaw because I've met him twice and because he's the guitarist for my favorite band right now (and trumpet player for my second favorite band).

    Jimmy Page because he was my favorite guitar player of all time. I loved his work in both the Yardbirds and Led Zeppelin.

    George Harrison because he always has had a real sweet, whimsical style.

    Tom Verlaine because "Marquee Moon" is the best song ever.

    Eric Clapton because "Layla" is the best song ever.

    Kirk Hammett (pre-Load era) is my favorite in the metal genre -- clean riffs with a quasi-classical sound.

    Apologies to those I forgot about for the time being!

    Yes Leo - shameful how the grey matter declines with age - I hardly know how you tolerate yourself!

  • gaiagirl

    Neil Girardo, husband of Pat Benetar, and player on most (all?) of her famous hits.

    Robert Smith from The Cure - very underated were doing so well too

  • Alpaca

    I must be showing my age...

    But, I am sorry you guys, no one outplays Hendrix...

    Especially when he's playing a Dylan song.

    I may be dating myself here, but I still love the musical stylings of Rock God Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin fame.

    I also pay homage to my Rock Goddess, Nancy Wilson.
