Just watched that earlier post featuring the anonymous overhand guitarist. I'd rather hear her story than the insufferable guitarists assembled in "It Might Get Loud." I suppose White's a decent selection for contemporary guitarist. His live performances rarely slip into obnoxious virtuosic displays. But the Edge? If I had to pick an 80's influential/mainstream artist, I'd much rather listen to Johnny Marr. And Page? I think Richards or Townshend did a better job interpreting/reinventing. My first pick would be Bo Diddley. I saw him once in the mid 80's at the Orange County Fair. Long past his prime, he still jangled through a solid set. But he's dead. So maybe Billy Zoom? Or the Good brothers from the Sadies? Who'd I miss?
Maybe it's best to just listen to guitars, not guitarist.
