The Ten Greatest Dead Guitarist

Next week I'm going to a Jeff Beck concert. I've had three people tell me that he's in their list as a top 5 guitarist. I thought I'd look at that a little closer.

I've separated them into two list....The guitarists who have passed on and tomorrow we'll look at the greatest living players.

There are lots of candidates for both lists. Honorable mention for the late axe players goes to Jerry Garcia, Gary Moore, Alvin Lee, Joe Pass, Hubert Sumlin, Roy Buchanan, Terry Kath and Frank Zappa.

Here's the list....feel free to suggest others.

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
