 John Fahey

how's this for random: I had an e-convo with John Fahey about 9-10 yrs ago. he told me that he really liked sonic youth, of all bands, and that thurston moore was a good friend of his! extremely good guitarist tho', definitely underrated. he just had some re-issues done I think. RIP

Cool to see Lindsey Buckingham getting some props. He's definitely in my top fifteen.

And DUANE ALLMAN, JOHNNY WINTER, and BRIAN SETZER would probably be in my top 20.

I got to see Brian Setzer live on the Dirty Boogie tour. He's an insanely good player. I've always wished that someday I could see him with the Stray Cats.

Santana is pretty good, but man, is he an annoying stoner to listen to in concert.

In order:

1.  Stevie Ray Vaughan
2.  Mark Knopfler
3.  Eddie Van Halen

and I can't rank 'em after that.  I think Page is great, but he's sloppy as all get-out.  Just listen to "Hot Dog" one more time if you're in doubt.  Nowhere near as great a guitarist as Plant is a vocalist.  But hey, it was all Zeppelin, it was all good.  =)

Jimmy Page was/is brilliant in the studio but was hit/miss live. In fact Pete Townsend has always been the same way.  But they're still geniuses though.

I saw STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN about 3 weeks before he was killed in that helicopter crash.  Definitely would be in my top 20, too.  Saw MARK KNOPFLER with ERIC CLAPTON, and maybe I should boot someone from my list now...  Wink  I agree that JIMMY PAGE is damned sloppy (and a huge egotist) but I still listen to LED ZEP and it's getting onto 40 years!!

There are still so many great ones that weren't mentioned. I could make a list of 100 and still end up not quite complete really. Some really great ones made the lists though. (Good call on Alex Chilton there Allhallowsday, Big Star = LOVE)

Personally I never thought SRV was as great as his fans say. People try and compare him to Jimi and I just don't see it. Personally, I feel there's nobody that close to Jimi in any way, , He's firmly cemented in first in my book.

Also, I'm not sure how one could lump Angus and Malcolm Young together, , they're leagues apart. Malcolm is good, , but I don't think he is even top 25.

I'm surprised I'm the only person to put a word in for Randy Rhodes.

Ahh yes, Mr. Rhoads. Just missed out on my top, I know he's better than some of the guys I listed, but that's just my favouritism towards influence and sound.

Also I would like to give honorable mention to Mr. Adrian Vandenberg, who is massively underrated;

I put them together because they are very exciting as a team, but by themselves, they would probably bore me.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
