    There is no way I could narrow to 5.

    Prince, John Mayer, Steve Lukather, Eddie van Halen, Mike Campbell, Mike Scott, Joe Satriani, SRV, Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Jude Cole, Jake E. Lee, Brian May, James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett, Don Felder and Joe Walsh, Slash. I could go on if I spent time on it.

    Just because you mentioned SRV, there was a book released in August by a couple of GW guys (Andy Aledort and?) about SRV. It’s called Texas Flood, and is outstanding. It’s very anecdotal with interviews of people that were around him. Can’t recommend it enough.

    1. Adam jones
    2. Slash
    3. EVH
    4. Hetfiled
    5. Angus / malcolm
    I also have to mention: Iommi, Page, Morello, Gilmour, Knopfler, Gallagher, Hendrix, Satch, Gibbons, Dimebag, Holiday, Wilson, Tremonti, May, the edge...

    So top 20 would be easier :D

    Let’s not forget the unsung heroes:

    Keith Scott (Bryan Adams), although I think he may have been mentioned.

    Dominic Miller (Sting)

    Steve Van Zandt (Bruce Springsteen)

    Jeff Baxter and Denny Dias (Steeley Dan)

    All these guys rock my world, I could go on, but you get the picture.

    Still twitching? Take a muscle relaxer and plug in the headphones. I'll let you add to your list.

    I quite like Andy Summers' stuff outside the Police. Green Chimneys (Monk tunes) is very good and even Sting sounds decent on Round Midnight.
