Actually I got asked this question tonight by my 12 year old stepson! Now I list the following in not any particular order but just as they come to mind. Of course feel free to add to the list!

Brian May (of course)
George Harrison
Eric Clapton
Mark Knopfler
BB King
Chuck Berry
The dude from Guns n Roses (apologies to their fans that I don't know his name - hey he's good though)

How you could not mention Jimmy Hendrix is beyond me.

Also, Stevie Ray Vaughan.
