I would have expected to see Duane on some of these lists, hes number 2 on Rolling Stone Magazines top 100 guitarists of all time. Duane may not have been an amazinly fast guitarist like Page, but he was as creative as Hendrix and played all over the fret board.

Also guys like malmstein, vai and satrianni are really very talented, but the music they play is garbage in my opinion, i cant stand listening to it, no matter how talented they are. Plus i dont really like shredders like that.

I think Duane is a great player, but the Allman Brothers are much better as a band than he is a stand alone player Just not an innovator. Billy Gibbons is head and shoulders ahead of Duane. And I don't put a lot of credit into a rolling stone list #1 it changes every year #2 the dude from creed was #1 one year, how credible can that list be.


His name is Mark Tremonti. He got his fame from Creed, but his true talent is showing with his new band - Alter Bridge. Stapp was always the control-freak of Creed, and didn't let Mark do what he wanted to do. Before bashing Mark for being considered one of the greatest guitarists ever, you should check out his new stuff and make your decision. There is no doubt in my mind that he should be included in any such list. Don't be ignorant to the idea that just because he was in Creed, then there's no way he can rock out. Creed started as a true rock band and progressed in to a commercial rock band. The split was a great thing for Tremonti, and Alter Bridge is putting out music that is absolutely incredible, IMO.

Alter Bridge is gooooooood stuff! ;-D

Glad to hear you're on board rugby. I've been to two of their shows and have met the entire band. They're a great group of down to earth guys without huge ego problems. They're bigger in Europe for some reason than they are in America. It's strange, I think it has to do with promotion.

I have a concert in Scotland and the crowd is huge and reciting every word. Here, they are the sideshow act for the 3DoorsDown concert. :-P

The next CD had better sell more than 800,000 albums or I will lose all faith in American "rock" music. :-t

Anyone can sound good on a record. The best that I have seen live are Alex Lifeson, Mark Knoffler and Edge. Knoffler and Edge were pretty progressive with their styles as well, but I'm not into guitarists as much as others on this board.

I have yet to see Tremonti live, but from what I have heard on Alter Bridge's first record...I am VERY impressed. They are a great band with great singing, lyrics, and guitar work. Tremonti is good becuase he knows when to be subtle and when to bust out.

Guitar One or Guitar World, did an issue on him, it came with a video, and he has some chops!

If Eric Clapton says that you were the best guitarist ever, I'll take his word for it. Stevie Ray was a P.I.M.P....

yeah, europe is definitely more receptive to the harder, heavier, and technically superior sounds.

Al di Meola is a close 2nd
