Rory Gallagher  :bow:
Nick McCabe-The Verve
Brian Robertson-Thin Lizzy

So true... I still can't believe that the Rollingstone Magazine did not even rank him in top 10, I'm not sure if they even ranked him... Thats a shame... I heard once that a reporter asked Jimi Hendrix this question:

"So Jimi how does it feel to be the greatest guitarist in the world?
 Jimi goes: "Ask Rory Gallagher"

Its a shame that not many people know about him at all.. Honestly he is one of my favorite guitarist of all time.

How did I forget Izzy?! :argh
Roses are red
Violets are blue
Fuck you, whore.

Johan is not nuts. At least not anymore nuts than the rest of us. He is ruled by his own psychology, which includes jealousy that he cannot sing that high.

she kisses 2 guys: Shes a SLUT; he bangs 5 girls: Hes a LEGEND. Well, theres a simple way to see this; If you got a lock that can be open with many keys, that lock kinda sucks, right? But if you got a key that can open many locks, it's a master key;)

Yngwie Malmsteen. the most technical skills ever (including Buckethead and whoever else)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a4l1Jk3ZCb4
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8kYC5D_lBc
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yj7HE35aeH0
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqZlPmnkKBk
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVojnB0vowI

this guy owns everyone ever to walk this planet.

If you are under the impression that Malmsteen is the “be all and end all” of guitar playing, then you really have a lot to listen to from now on. Yngwie is a severely overrated player. Not a bad player by any means, but his  “credit versus significance”- ratio is severely messed up. People like  Buckethead, Bumblefoot, Shawn Lane and Guthrie Govan are eons ahead of Malmsteen, both technically as well as compositionally. Yngwie gets more than enough recognition (now there’s an understatement) for being a pretty decent (nothing more) technical player who very briefly catalyzed neo classical music (nothing more)…

Here, for instance, is a little anecdote from Jonas Hellborg (one of the most prolific bass players of our time) about the dearly missed Shawn Lane:

“At the end of the ’80s, when I stopped playing with John McLaughlin, I started working with Anders and Jens Johansson, who were the drummer and keyboardist for Yngwie Malmsteen. They told me about this monster guitarist they had met one day while doing their laundry in Memphis. Apparently, there was a music store right next to the laundromat, and they went in there to kill some time while their clothes were drying. Jens got on a keyboard and started playing a UK song called “Presto Vivaci and Reprise,” and this young guy comes over with his guitar and says, “Hey, can I jam with you?” He starts playing that very complicated song note-for-note, and then he plays them something from Frank Zappa’s “Black Page.” Jens and Anders were so blown away that they brought Shawn to the gig that night, basically to insult Yngwie.”

-excerpt from “Requiem for a Master” by Art Thompson
