    Name Your 3 Favorite Guitarists

    by BehnWilson » Fri Sep 24, 2010 8:12 am

    Name your 3 (or more if you want) favorite guitarists. It can be metal or hard rock. Mine are:

    1.MICHAEL SCHENKER - Far and away my alltime favorite. I still remember his performance with UFO at Chicago's Amphitheater 30 years ago like it was yesterday. Luckily for me they recorded this and it is the Strangers in the Night album, my fav album ever. His work with UFO, The Scorpions and MSG is all top notch.


    2.RITCHIE BLACKMORE - The main man and principal songwriter for both Deep Purple and Rainbow, two of the greatest bands ever, (Rainbow for the period Dio was in the band). One of the best riffers ever, Smoke On The Water and Kill The King. :headbanger:


    3.DAVE MUSTAINE - Maybe the best pure song writer in metal.

    I think I could probably name a different 3 each day for a month or so but, for now at least...

    Glenn Tipton :shred:

    Neil Young :mrgreen:

    Tony Iommi :headbanger:
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    Excellent choices, especially Craig!!! (Yngwie's music bores me though)

    My favs change all the time and it seems whoever Ive seen most recently moves up the list. Gary Holt and Lee Altus from Exodus come to mind. Blackmores the exception as no way Id see his current Renaissance Fair junk but Ive been playing a lot of Ranbow since Ronnie died. I forgot how much I liked them growing up. Deep Purple has regularly been in my rotation.

    I had 2nd row at Rainbow concert while in college at SIU-Carbondale. :headbanger:

    I got my 8 Track Player/Power Booster stolen out of my car at a Van Halen concert at the long since torn down Chicago Amhitheater back in high school, lol. Came back from the concert to a giant rock in my front seat with the window smashed in

    Eddie was the man back in those days.

    lol - old fart is one of those expressions that probably make non-native English speakers go WTF :lol: On a related note, a friend of a friend of mine goes by proggeezer on a prog music forum - that just cracks me up.

    Yeah I was very impressed the first time I heard Morbid Angel back in the day. Just something about Trey's riffs and weird leads standed out from the crowd.

    I love his song Chapel of Ghouls off their first album Altars of Madness. Especially the second half where he just starts jamming and it sounds like the soundtrack to a horror movie. Thats my favorite death metal song/album.

    I was a little disappointed when Decibel Magazine ranked their top 20 death metal guitarists and listed Trey 2nd to Chuck Schuldiner. I think Trey should have far and away been number 1, even though obviously Chuck is no slouch.

    I still have the mag if anyone is curious of the rankings, let me know and I can type them out.
