There are hundreds of guitar players who are/were legends in their own lifetimes I suspect. Not all the above are my favourites but are/were certainly recognised as truly great players before death.

Buddy Guy!


And probably Eric Clapton...


Here's one that went off the rails... Peter Green. He was a legend and became something other than what he was. He's still Peter Green, but he lost that Peter Green in himself a long time ago...
