I think that Brian is the 13th because he make a very professional song, he doesn't is a guitarrist & showman like Jimi Hendrix, I think that when he is playing guitar he is very very concetrate to make the best sound with his guitar and I think that this is more popular than break guitars.

Guitarists shouldn't be compared!
There is not THE BEST!
there is not the best, howerver you can tell who is better and who is worse.
No, the only thing you can compare is technical skill (which in itself is not even easy to compare). Everything else is personal preference and 100% subjective. And as we all know, technical skill is not the only thing we use to judge who we like and who we do not in the guitar world...unless that's what you do...and in that case, I'm sorry for you, as you are missing out on the music itself.
Edit: On a side note, I am willing to bet that most of you have not even heard Frank Zappa's music, nor have you given it a close enough listen to even begin to decide if he was so good or not.
I know Zappa, and I had his discography [and what a huge discography] and his style of playing and composing was completly different from music that people are used to.
Technically, he wasn't great, but he could play beautiful things.
He was the master of one of my all-time guitar heroes, and one of the best guitarists that stepped into this world: Steve Vai.
Frank Zappa was great! RIP
