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!
