I found this ,People are not happy either about this article.. beware, some verbal context in that article) Since we are all grown adult here, I figure we can handle a bit of bad language.

Runner Up: Steve Vai.

Third Place: Jimi Hendrix.

Honorable mentions to Allen Collins, SRV, and Darrell Abbott.

Any questions? :D

Guitar rags are all about popularity. I'm sure kurt Kobain was the "greatest guitarist" at some point in time.... :lol: :lol:

Much agreed Box. I think it's impressive he can do it, but it's like watching rabbits do it. All speed, no feel. I actually find it annoying after a few seconds.

Gary Rossington has a great quote regarding players like that. He was asked about Eddie VanHalen. He responded something to the effect of, "He's awesome, he's a freak of nature but after he plays a solo you've heard every note there is to hear, what's left?"

Yes Box, in Rock and Blues, simple bending of a single note can be soulful than strings of 16th notes.
