+1 and well said about Neil Young.

For me, Zappa, Robert Fripp, Rory Gallagher are tops.  But Tony Iommi is my Hendrix!

My favorite currently active guitar player is Guthrie Govan. Among other projects, he's currently in the band "The Aristocrats" with Bryan Beller and Marco Minnemann. All three members are fantastic talents.

If you're a fan of Prog or Rock/Jazz hybrids, definitely worth checking out.

Iommi is so amazing. As a metalhead, he is to be revered! Metal has produced a ton of amazing guitar heroes...

Since were on favorites, my favorite is Kurt cobain, for the pure emotion in the playing and the amazing pop hooks injected into such raw punk, every song is a memorable riff.

t-t-t-t-talkin' 'bout my generation.....roughly the same age is Kurt would have been or Chris Cornell of Soundgarden.......

 

I love the way Neil Young can go from folk to country tinged rock to raw garage. Also credited as being the godfather of grunge. So, in some ways there is a link between Neil Young and Kurt Cobain.

 

Also as a metal guy, this year I put together a proper "digital rock library" for my Sonos system and bought a bunch of classic rock, alternative, etc. that I always liked, owned when I was younger, etc. but didn't own.

 

 

 

I had some Neil Young-but not hat much of his earlier stuff.

 

I know this is super well known-but for anyone wanting a place to start, this double disc is the way to go...just an amazing body of work here. This has become a favorite compilation of mine. I think it's really well done of his first jaw dropping decade in music that I would argue rivals, the Stones, Clapton, even the Beatles:

Amazon says:

Amazon.com

The first stop for anybody new to Neil Young's music, this 34-song set (originally released in 1977) traces his growth from Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young to Crazy Horse to his Harvest band, the Stray Gators. The album defined Young to rock radio the way Hot Rocks determined which Rolling Stones songs would become classics, but this is more than a quickie greatest-hits collection. Rarities and hits--Springfield's "Mr. Soul," CSNY's "Ohio," and Young's "Cinnamon Girl," "Heart of Gold," and the closing "Long May You Run"--develop in thematic and chronological patterns. --Steve Knopper

Hells yeah! As a non-musician I would also go for feel and my emotional connection to hard rock as a youth in the late 70's: Angus Young (not the most technically gifted-but the boy can throw down) and Jimmy Page.

Neil young was definitely the godfather of grunge, attitude is big there and the emotional connection to the music. I've seen him a couple times (he's technically local to me) and his live material is just so intense

Another good one from that era is Jerry Cantrell, simple bluesy hard rock but the melodies and stuff are just so heartfelt

Agreed on ol angus, that man could throw down, there's a reason why ac/dc is the best known hard rock all over the world

I've actually taken lessons from Bryan Beller.  Not that I'm name dropping or anything...

Jerry Cantrell is one of my favorite guitarist…I love the sound of the hardcore grunge he creates.

I saw AIC twice, once with Layne Staley, and once with their new vocalist William DuVall, which too my surprise was a great choice for the band.

Very cool actually. He comes across on stage as a nice guy who might have a good but sarcastic sense of humor. I like his solo stuff too.

Just to be clear- he wouldn't recognize me if he tripped over me, but I did take 2 clinics and a private lesson.

 

He's actually fairly humble and funny.  Makes fun of 'rock stars' a lot.  And all of his stuff is killer.  Definitely Grado-friendly

Last year in college for me-"Man in the Box" yo!

 

So many people across genres like Alice in Chains...my wife even-and believe me-that's saying something.

 

They just somehow bridged the gap between grunge/hard rock/metal and alternative. So much love for that band. I think of all the newmetal wannabees that copied Stanely's vocal style.

AIC is my favorite band from back in the 90's, nobody sounds like them although they have tried.

Mad Seasons "Above" Cd with Layne Staley on vocals is also very good.
