  5. Pete Townshend

Brian May - emotional powerful style with perfectionist attitude and interesting ideas.

Robin Trower - Incredible emotion in His playing

Andy Scott - Sadly overlooked as a great guitarist but His work speaks for itself

Steve Vai - always full of surprises and usually played to perfection

Gary Moore - He had it all, always amazing to see & hear.


It's hard, and I'll probably regret it tomorrow:

1. Alex Lifeson - For the Villa La Strangiato solo if nothing else.

2. Jimmy Page - The messiah.

3. Paul Kossoff - Unique genius.

4. Jimi Hendrix - He re-wrote the rule book.

5. Ritchie Blackmore - Brought classical influences to axe work.
