If civilbee would have noticed that the guitarists metioned on the list are pioneers of the rock sound rather than a rather mainstreem popular guitarist, who in my opinion is below average if you have ever heard him live, would retract his statement.

I listened to Maggot Brain, by Edie Hazel,for the first time yesterday and God he revolutionized the transition betweeen true blues and modern rock guitar. If it wasn't for his drug abuse and the color of his skin we would still be speaking name today.
