    Ah, the benefits of running a site like this. Every time Amanda and I argue over something epic like the greatest guitarist ever, I can count on a poll so she can prove me wrong

    Anyway, keep voting. I'd tell you who I voted for, but that would ruin the game.

    Hm, well it depends: Are we voting on the guitarist whose life has made him most "worthy" of being in Heaven? Or who would be the best addition to Heaven's band (Because you know they have to have a house band in Heaven)? Hm, whatever, I'm going with Hendrix.

    My guitar heaven would have Jerry Garcia, SRV and Carlos Santana. Since Santana's the only one on the list, I went with him.

    I voted Hendrix, but if we're talking favourites I like Peter Buck and Neil Young. Not wailing guitar gods, but their styles are evocative and can make my inner organs swell up like nobody's business.
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.

    I'm going with Clapton.
    He's got a related unanswered question to figure out.
    And I'm not gonna be the one who's vote keeps him from finding out

    I'm missing Jimmy Page, Mark Knopfler and Freddie King. Of the four we've got though, I'm tentatively going with Clapton. I don't like Eddie Van Halen's music, so can't appreciate him. For me, Carlos Santana didn't integrate the guitar into the body of the song well enough (too much guitar soloing for my taste), and Hendrix went to London because he wanted to meet Clapton. So Hendrix thought Clapton was the man. Hendrix for innovation and Clapton for purity and moving the music forward, with an edge to Clapton just because we've got a larger body of work to judge him on. (and I'm ignoring his crappy easy-listening stuff). (I'm a Yardbirds and Cream fan).

    If we had only Claptons work on the song Let it Rain, that would be enough for me.

    Originally, I had David Gilmour and Trey Anastasio with Hendrix as my fav's... but Trey is still relatively young and i was happy nonetheless that Gilmour had a bunch of songs in the top 100 and Trey managed to squeak in as well
