As we seem to be straying off the beaten path I'm going to add a name not often heard hereabouts but still one heck of a player; Eric Stewart of 10 C.C.

 

Not the flashiest LP-slinger on the planet, perhaps, but this solo is (IMHO) beautifully constructed and played with fantastic touch. Somewhat Gilmouresque, in fact.

Skip to the 9:14 mark for the start. Oddly enough I still remember the 'hairs-on-the-back-of-my-neck' tingle the first time I heard the note played at 11:18...

As a point of trivia; the LP he used to record this was up for sale on ebay a couple of years ago. It was a very much modified '54 Custom.

Here's the original listing minus, unfortunately, the pictures. I don't know if it actually sold at this price.

I really enjoyed that Pippy. Thank you for sharing. 11:18 came from the SOUL.

 

Kindest Regards. MississippiBlue

I was torn between choosing Paul Kossoff and Peter Green, but I think I'm going to have to say Koss. One the subject of Peter Green, here's a tribute to him from Gary Moore, and Gary playing Peter's I Loved Another Woman, it's magical:

PS If you haven't seen Koss play (he seems to be recognised by English guitarist's as a rule), check out my forum post here:

Frampton comes alive is what got me into guitar when I was 14! I was like wow you can do that on a guitar?

Still he's not in my top three though. Good stuff on Humble Pie too. 30 days in the hole.....

 

Page is my #1

 

Then...

Gibbons

Allman

Zappa

Les Paul

That pic of Bonamassa cracks me up. Normally it'd be enough that you're wearing sunglasses indoors to give me a hint that you're a ******, but that photo proves it beyond a shadow of a doubt. Hack.

He speaks very highly of you, though.

Jimmy Page

Duane Allman

Warren Haynes

My favorite era of The Who is when Pete was playing LPs, so I'd throw him in there.

 

Probably in that order. But if I had to pick just one, it would be hard to choose between Page and Allman.
