in the folowing order;
Hendrix, Page, Clapton, Beck, Townshend,
Van Halen was always a wanker compared to them. Not to diminish his skill at all, but at the end of the day he doesnt make the top 5.
The Norton won't tame anything.  A fantastic pickup, it will make your LP sound like a wild mongoose who is piloting a F-22 raptor and smoking crystal meth

+1, especially Beck and Townshend. Heavily underappreciated guys.

I have always loved Music but it wasn't until I saw Dokkens "Alone Again" on MTV. I didn't have cable at home *boo hoo*

Anyway, George Lynch and still to this day George out does them all for me. I don't care for him live much though mostly just the Dokken years.
It was truly a dream come true when I opened for them during there Dysfunctional tour in St. Louis.

Wow, all of you guys are into Vaughn, Vai, Satriani, Hendrix and such, and now I feel like an outcast. My First guitar Idol was Dickey Betts of all people. Him, as well as Duane Allman were my first guitar idols.
Once apon a time someone dreamed of a pickup that had so much low end that a slew of derogatory sayings about it would follow the pickups creation. On that night the ToneZone was born

Dickey Betts and Duane Allman are great guitarists.  In terms of pickups Betts is a great example of the Pearly Gates PAF, and Allman of vintage (by today's standards underwound) PAFs.

Okay I should probably say that at this point I am much more into the current Allman Brothers Lineup. This was awhile ago that I was a real fan of Dickey, back when I was still just learning most of the basics. Nowadays I'm particularly a fan of Derek Trucks Slide playing, and Warrens voice is damn good, and makes a neat contrast with Gregg.

Apparently you missed my post ;D
I suppose I did. Sorry about that.

Tripping balls... Now lets recall the Brothers Logo eh  :P . Did you see him with the Brothers or with Great Southern? As for Duane, he had a hell of a rep for a guy who died at 24 :madness:.

I was listening to music pretty much around 5 years old, that would be 1980, music had been playing everywhere around the house.

When I started, I was a big fan of Mick Mars and Dave Mustaine. Their sense of rhythm still lingers on to this day.

But it wasn't until Kurt Cobain came into the scene. I almost gave up playing guitar. He somewhat showed me to just love playing music. And that still goes on to this day.

And also, no love here for George Harrison?
