    Best guitarist ever?

    I was checking out music videos on YouTube, got nostalgic and found a boat-load of old, (60's-80's), rock-and-roll, including some Ten Years After. I started reminiscing about the great guitarists of yesteryear and was wondering about people's choices for best ever.
    My top three:
    1. Alvin Lee (Ten Years After)
    2. Carlos Santana - still goin' strong!!
    3. Eric Clapton - best rock/blues picker I've ever heard
    If you're young or lived on another planet in the 70's and haven't had a chance to listen to Ten Years After, check it out. It's' worth it!!

    Re: Best guitarist ever?

    I know it's pretty much a cliche and I'm not really going out on a limb, but it's gotta be Eddie Van Halen. No one (except for maybe Hendrix) has been more innovative, influential, or just plain kicks ***** more.

    Some of my other favorites.....

    Billy Gibbons
    KK Downing and Glen Tipton
    Clapton
    Bruce Kulick
    Chet Atkins

    Yes, he is a bass guitarist. Now whether he plays basketball, I have no idea.

    Who is the bald guy that wears sunglasses all the time. I thought one of his albums was Silver Surfer but can't seem to find it anywhere.
