Completely personal opinion but I Youtubed him and, seems kick-ass, not fast in comparison to the usual G3 fodder but more emotive...working with Jonas Hellborg helped of course...again not my style but he has his own range of Warwick...everything! and he's rather good too.

Amazing to me that I didn't see anywhere in this thread mention of:
Billy Gibbons, supposedly Hendrix's favorite
David Gillmour-just take a listen to Wish you were here or Dark side
either of the Boss's playing mates: Little Stevie, or Nils

or for a total unknown but unbelievable shredder try Ry Kihn(yes Greg's son )

Whoops, forgot about where it all started- the blues so the list should also include: Robert Johnso, Muddy &BB.

Did anyone mention new kid on the block Joe Bonamassa?

And Billy Gibbo was metnioned on page 6 by someone, im sure Gilmour was too.

Hello! Joe Satriani is much better than Vai, although Vai is still awesome. The Satch taught Vai!

For some reason, Gilmour is mentioned extensively in this thread (certainly by me) and yet the typeface is invisible. Trust me, the Floydster has often, and deservedly, been credited.

Remember when I said David Byrne and Lee had an emotional breakdown?

Speaking of which, you can listen to his and Eno's new album at http://www.everythingthathappens.com/

I saw over on HC a thread about 'Which Of Today's Artists Will Be Tomorrow's Influences?'... worth a loook.

Random picks from that thread:

Death Cab for Cutie
Flaming Lips
Jack White
John Mayer

I had no idea Lee worked with Brian Eno. Third Uncle is a fave of mine; is that Lee's SG I hear :?:

Andy Timmons and Adrian Vandenberg should be on my list. They are among the under rated guitarists but they are one of the bests

I would never air my SG for Eno.
