    Page can be sloppy live, but his studio work is magnificent. I'd put him in my top 10

    Hendrix
    Jeff Beck
    Jimmy Page
    Keith Richards
    BB King
    Buddy Guy
    Albert King
    James Burton
    Chuck Berry
    Robbie Robertson

    I take your point, but Stills's intricate and elegant solos and intros and his work on CSNY's body of music earn him some sort of consideration. I'm not trying to put him up with Hendrix or something, after all, but he deserves a little more credit than he gets.

    Agreed. Been listening to Mississippi John Hurt alot lately.But would never expect to find him such a list.

    100 guitar players - Robert Johnson belongs in there somewhere.

    I agree....

    Vernon Reid is the man. I am not sure he should be in the top 5 but definately in the top 20.

    I think that might've been the first time CC played period.

    I am jealous you saw Slash. I love him.

    I was a sucker for Poison, and CC is currently on the surreal life, and he played the guitar for the first time sobber( his words) and he was GREAT!

    The DigitalDreamDoor list actually has 200 names in order, then another 100 in alphabetical order. Number 103 on the list is Vernon Reid from Living Colour. Personally, I think he should be top 5.

    It's funny you should say that about Page because I just read somewhere him and Robert Plant thought their performance at Live Aid was so bad, they didn't want it released on the DVD recently.

    It probably helps that Slash is no longer strung out 100% of the time. His playing is a lot better with VR than it ever was with Guns.

    A reason I didn't list Page was because I saw him with Zeppelin, The Firm, the Ronnie Lane bennefit, Live AID '85 and a few other times and I never heard such sloppy guitar work as I did each and every time I saw him.

    Saw Slash play a few months ago at the UK Rock and Roll Hall of Fame where he did a Hendrix song. Don't remember the song, but he was great. Now CC Deville is a whole another story and shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence as Slash.
