Bert Jansch is probably my favourite. I can barely stand how good that man is. It just seems somehow wrong that someone is that amazing coupled with such simplicity.

Others I dig are:

Jeff Beck

Jimmy Page

Johnny Winter

Elmore James

B.B. King

Jimi Hendrix

Eric Clapton

& various others.

Dave Gilmour

Vini Reilly (The Durutti Column)

Michael Karoli (Can)

Johnny Marr (Smiths)

John Fahey

Nile Rodgers (Chic)

Pete Townsend

Jimi Hendrix

I m starting to like Peter Green alot. But if i was Building the Mount Rushmore of Guitar Heroes. Page, Hendrix, B.B. King and the last spot is a toss up for me because i just don't really care about anybody else to put their faces up their. This is the rolling stone 100 greatest Guitarist. and i do disagree with most of it except that Van Halen is number 70.


Jack White should not be on that list.

I just found out who the fuck is Ry Cooder.
