Signor Music's Favorite Rock Guitarists Of All-Time!!!!

Because we are all sick to death of politics and worrying about just how awful the next few months and years will be, (hint: pretty fucking awful--unless you're a rich, white male), herein follows my highly subjective list of favorite rock guitarists:

1. Jimi Hendrix

2. Bill Nelson

3. Pete Townshend

4. Mick Ronson

5. Prince

6. Neil Young

And then in no particular order: Joe Walsh, Jeff Beck, George Harrison, David Gilmour, Mark Knopfler, Mike Campbell, Brian May, Billy Gibbons, Tom Verlaine, Paul McCartney, Mick Jones (Clash), Martin Barre, the Edge, Steve Hunter, Dick Wagner, Phil Manzanera, David Hidalgo, Nils Lofgren, John Lennon, Dave Davies, Ron Wood, Richard Thompson, Mike McCready and Stone Gossard, Robin Trower, Lindsay Buckingham, and Bruce Springsteen.

(I have to admit here that I haven't really liked Eric Clapton much since Cream, and, despite his obvious virtuosity, I never liked Jimmy Page much at all. The same applies to Eddie Van Halen.)

And, of course, we can't forget Chuck Berry, because quite simply there wouldn't be rock and roll without him.
