A pretty good list, but I don't think Eddie Van Halen should be on it. If there is Van Halen, there should be Blackmore. If there was Blackmore, there should've been Page. And so on, and so on. If the list is for metal guitarists, they must put only metal, not hard rock guitarists. And I am completely agree with Iommi being 1st. The influence and innovation in playing is way more important than technique, so although Hendrix and Page played hard before Iommi, he is the most influential among the metal guitarists.

As far as top 10 lists go, it's pretty fair and I was surprised to see that not everyone on the list is a devoted Gibson player (to my knowledge, Eddie Van Halen never played Gibson). George Lynch seems a bit out of place, although I can't really argue against him being on there.

Eddie plays a 1958 Wood Korina Flying V. He primarily plays Charvel and Kramer. I was also surprised. George Lynch is a very qualified quitarist but it does nothing for me, similar to Paul Gilbert.

Personally I don't find technicality makes a good guitarist.

Creativity without technical proficiency is limited, but technical proficiency without creativity is just exercise.

I'm a bit surprised at Buzz Osborne not being on this list. He's never really been known as a great guitarist, but the inclusions of Tony Iommi and Adam Jones show that originality was just as much a factor as the ability to shred 400 notes per second.... and the Melvins single-handedly created an entire subgenre of metal. Well, maybe with a little assistance from Black Flag.

Technicality in due to creativity yes. But as an essential factor no.

Who would you say, Howard, is the greatest?

What do you mean? Some would say that Sabbath were just hard Rock but I would say that Hendrix and zeppelin were hard rock, sabbath were definitely early metal.

Fun list, but kinda odd. I never would consider putting Kirk on the same field as Tony, yet the number two ranking implies they're in the same league. Randy Rhodes, yes, Yes, YES! That's your true #2.

Very under-rated player.
