Rather than "BEST" guitarist maybe FAV instead

Recommended Posts

Can't really understand why The Eagles got rid of him?

They apparently fired him over, of all things, MONEY. It seems that he resented the fact that Henley and Frey took a larger percentage of profits from the Hell Freezes Over tour and album etc... Up to that point everyone got equal shares. He launched a lawsuit. They counter sued. Blah, blah, blah. I don't know how it all turned out. Felder has a book coming out so that will no doubt shed some light on it. The counter suit was in fact due to Felder's book deal.

Wow this is a hard question, and like everyone else, mine changes a lot!

I love Mark Knopfler's sound, with it's sometimes spanish influence.

If you've never heard "Truth", you won't understand the fuss over Jeff Beck, but he is incredible.

I love Neil Young, but more for his lyricism lately. When I love him for his guitar playing, it's when he's in "grunge" phase.

But there really are so many!
