I got to see them from the front row at Wolf Trap.  Unbelievable.

I read the thread title and the first thing that came to my mind was 'Fripp.' that guy is a genius.
Don't know whether he is technically the best players, but he is one of the best song writers.

Rory Gallagher never sold out and the best of Rory was in concert, his albums were fine but when he walked on stage you had an experience to remember. Sadly with us no more but the memories linger on.

 

Mike Bloomfield.

Alvin Lee.

Robert Fripp.

Ry Cooder

 

Pity Clapton became a pastiche of himself.

 

Not too well up on the modern guys but based on this thread I intend to check out the much praised 'Buckethead' (lets hope they play the blues)

Yeah man, saw Rory at the Apollo in Manchester in 82, boy could he make that stratocaster sing, a true virtuoso.

I have been lucky enough to see a lot of the all time greats play live, listed below in no particular order other than to say, Santana is the most technically gifted and I would say he is my number one based on live performance.

 

Mick Ronson

Prince

Gary Moore

Eddie Van Halen

The Edge

Jeff Beck

Eric Clapton

Jimmy Page

Brian May

Pete Towsend

Joe Bonnasarra.

I can't believe no one mentioned Andy Timmons. Probably one of the most underrated guitar player. His new album Resolution is amazing, 100% analog, no digital effect.

Another vote for Buckethead, great to see him get a mention!

 

Also check out Guthrie Govan.

Rodrigo y Gabriela for me.  It's amazing what they can do with acoustic guitars.

He does, but it's not his usual genre (apologies for the poor sound quality);
