FUDU wrote:A big part of this debate is always personal musical preference in regards to each individual guitarist named.Some people like Jimi Hendrix a lot more than Jimmy page b/c they like Hendrix songs more than they like Zeppelin songs. Doesn't make either guitarist truly better (with exception to some technical differences). To comment that SRV or Hendrix creating some moving and awe inspiring music as an argument to their greatness over a Page is being disingenuous and obtuse in not recognizing that Page too was a HUGE part of some incredible awe inspiring music. Page's versatility was sickening, if he went a different route where he was bigger than his band (obviously he wasn't in LZ) then he just might be considered the best without question compared to the others who WERE their bands.If you took personal recognition and overall band success out of the equation a guy like Eddie Van Halen would probably be considered the best more often than he is or more often than most others. But saying EVH is the best some how implies Van Halen the group was the best, albeit while they were not it is not a fair assumption to make if EVH gets thrown into a debate like this.

The guitarist for Dream Theatre is #3 and he's also got the guitarists of both Journey and Triumph as better than Hendrix (I had to look up all their names). Hendrix did stuff that people still can't do today. Hell if it weren't for him half the people on all these lists probably never would have picked up a guitar.
