I need to point out, as a graduate of an extremely well respected school of music, that Zappa needs to be included in this list. People respected him, not just as a guitarist, but as a tremendous musician, while they continue to snigger at Philip Glass...

Do you get free beer though Sprogget? That's the measure of success, surely!

I played in a band so bad that we felt lucky to get free admission!

Keef once said, 'Who knows what happens if you stay in a rock'n'roll band past 40?'

This happens. You get used to each other, like an old couple:

FZ is one of the best guitar players ever! And Vinnie C. was his best drummer. Playing the Black Page one-handed eating sushi. Steve Vai couldn't believe it, and Frank threw the score in the air, & left the room shaking his head.
Check out U-Toob. FZ playing Watermelon In Easter Hay...sublime.

Someone who doesn't do "heavy", but can certainly shred if he wants to. He just doesn't want to, much: it's Bill Frisell:

Nice post earlier from Sprogget regarding the innovators.

I'd say for unique and recognizable sounds of the last couple of decades Billy Corgan is worth a mention alongside Brian May and the Edge.

Pretty much the whole of Siamese Dream is up there but the four-minute feedback solo in Drown is pretty unique, still one of my favourites and a great test for new speakers!

Has anybody here mentioned Joe Bonamassa or (when talking about the fairer sex) Chantel McGregor?
