My top five favorite guitarists, from the bottom up -
Steve Howe: From minimal exposure of him with Yes and just a little more exposure of him with Asia.
Jimmy Page: Probably higher up in the all-time list and should be, but the songs he’s played on have not meant as much to me as the others on this list ahead of him.
Joe Satriani: Part of the soundtrack of my life since I bought his "Flying In A Blue Dream" on cassette.
Eddie Van Halen: I was late-comer to Van Halen, his music in the later albums carried me through tough times and his solos helped me celebrate the good times.
Stevie Ray Vaughan: I have to take him in measured doses because my heart can’t take more than that probably because the man lays his soul out when he plays.
I forgot B.B. King.
What is wrong with me?
