    There are many, many more & these are the ones that have influenced & inspired me. But this is the one who inspired me to pick up the guitar in the first place:

    Oh the names that have adorned this thread!!! Every one a winner!
    Mine..... well, originally when I was a young bloke under 10 years old, there was George Harrison, then this bloke named Jimi Hendrix who could play a bit couldn't he?? :) and then as I got into my teens I "discovered" a Piano player named Leon Russell, and thought he was the best! Still love his music today.... and his guitarist then was Don Preston, not the DP from Zappa's group, but the DP from the South. Loved his tone. Next "discovery" was Duane Allman..... for me, the first time I "felt" music as opposed to just listening. (Sorry to any Dickey Betts fans, but although he was/is a good songwriter, his playing, and tone, just aren't my thing.) Mick Ronson was another player that whose music made sense to me. Another who taught me that music should be "felt" was Chuck Berry.... I love his playing still.... and back then in the 70's, through Chuck Berry I found Keith Richards.... named my son after him. In the 80's I found Eddie Van Halen, I love his musicality, I love his feel, and I love his piano/keyboard work as well. Even the VHIII album I liked, there was some good moments on it, and the tour was good as well. I listened to a lot of guitarists over the years, and they're all good, but I still like to look for that certain special something in music. Hammett and Hetfield have it, Gary Moore has it in spades IMHO, and Thin Lizzy's twins Gorham and Robbo had it. Of late I have been listening to Gov't Mule, can't believe that Warren Haynes has soooooo much soul in his playing. On YouTube the clip of Mule playing Rockin' Horse is awesome! Wish they'd tour Australia!!!

    There'll be others I listen to that I have not mentioned, Page, Gilmore, etc.... but for me... top marks to the ones above.

    Anyone remember Lobby LLoyde????? He had a song way WAY long ago called "Slowest Guitar On Earth"....... kicked arse that one did!!!!

    Cheers

    Brian

    George Harrison - He started it all for me

    Jimi Hendrix - He's the reason I stopped learning Beatle songs

    Jeff Beck - His vibrato was very gravitating

    EVH - The shock value was enough to make me forget everything previously learned

    Randy Rhoads - Any guitar player that can make an Ozzy song sound great gets my nod

    Neal Schon - What a kick-ass live player
