At the moment I'd say Eddie Van Halen, I've been listening to a bit of his live stuff from the 70's. I never realised quite how much he beat Paul Gilbert to the punch. Fantastic players all of them.

Stephen Stills (very under appreciated)
Mick Ronson (another one who doesn't get his due)
|"No time for joking, during our lovely conversation about Robbie Williams you've promised me to become one of the greatest guitar players ever and prove me that I'm piece of shit."
I want that in writing!
I don't deny saying it, I just can't for the life of me remember how I worded it.
In any case - you don't have to be all that special to be better than Robbie Williams. I'm talking purely about performing. The guy has numerous pretty songs in his repertoire; I've never denied that!!
Did you think I was just fluffing myself when I said I could probably outdo him (purely from a musical standpoint)???
Dude, it probably didn't mean I'm the greatest.. it means he ISN'T. Sheesh!
"Well... Gilmour and May. And Zebonka."
Now those first two, I can agree on...
In his day he was one of the best rhythm players in mainstream rock or R&B (the old meaning of the genre...) and a master of making pretty music with bare bones chords that any fool can play - he made absolute art with them.
As a lead guitarist, I seriously feel he's improved after 20 years off of the Who game. The guy is better than ever.
Eddie Van Halen

Actually it was COLUMBIA who ruined Journey, not Cain or Perry. Let's face it, prior to Perry, they still had that "Santana" sound going minus the percussion. Perry gave them identity. And we may hate Open Arms because of hearing it sooooo much, but it still is a classic song that every Rock ballad since has tried to copy. Don't blame Perry & Cain. CBS wanted them to become a rock ballad machine.
By the way, Rock guitarists are not the only guitarists.
