Zakk Wylde's a great guitar player, but I'm tempted to take points off because of what an ass he is.

Anyway, some additions (forgive if they've already been mentioned), most of which are a little unorthodox. every time we have a topic like this, it always seems to end with me and about six other people going for each others' throats, so I'm going to try to stay civil this time.

Eric Clapton - Cream
Tom Morello - Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave
Peter Buck - REM
Harry Chapin
Billy Zoom - X
Kim Thayil - Soundgarden
Jerry Cantrell - Alice in Chains
Eric Erlandson - Hole
Paul Simon - Simon & Garfunkel
TODD RUNDGREN!!! - Meat Loaf's guy, solo
That girl whose name I can't remember from L7
MIKE MCCREADY!!! - Pearl Jam
STONE GOSSARD!!! - also Pearl Jam
Dave Hill - Slade
East Bay Ray - Dead Kennedys


God wants you to send me some money.

Brian May. He is just a one-off and, to me, a legend. He does quality guitar solos that too me no one else can do or even no where can ever go near as good as Brian.

The terror twins Steve Clark and Phil Collen are the best closely followed by the legend Brian May.

He's a terrific guitarist. I also think Dave Murrey is a good guitarist.

Everyone forgot to mention Gary Moore! He's one of my favourites. Though I think Brian is better anyway :)
