Your top 15 guitarists of ALL TIME

just wondering what everyone thought.....here's my list
im not judging on who can play a ripping solo, thats part, but also how original an artist is.

15. Mike McCready - Pearl Jam
14. Kirk Hammet - Metallica
13. B.B. King
12. Keith Richards
11. Chuck Berry
10. Jimmy Page
9. John Fogerty
8. George Harrison
7. The Edge
6. Jimi Hendrix
5. Duane Allman
4. David Gilmour - Pink Floyd
3. Pete Townshend
2. Stevie Ray Vaughn
1. Eric Clapton


Im sure i forgot someone...
I would say someone like joe satriani or Yngwie Malmsteen but they dont have any hugely popular songs..just can burn.

In terms of originality, I'd put Hendrix way over Clapton. Even Clapton says Jimi's better... anyway, I can't do this in any order. And i'm not saying these guys are necessarily the best, just my favorite.


Tim Reynolds
Prince
Robert Johnson
The Edge
Jimi Hendrix
Jimmy Page
Eric Clapton
Tony Iommi
Pete Townshend
Johnny Greenwood
Kirk Hammet
JOHN FRUSCIANTE
Mick Jones
David Gilmour
George Harrison
