Phil Keaggy definitely kicks. If I'm not mistaken, Hendrix himself was in awe of a young Phil Keaggy. Quite the resume,ha?

I retract my previous nominee... didn't realize this was the classic rock section, but everyone should still check him out.

Jack is a riffing king. Simple riffs is just The White Stripes style. "Seven Nation Army" is such a simple song, but I think it's genius. That bass line is so simple but so sweet, kinda "Dazed and Confused"-esque. Great lyrics. Just emits a great eerie feeling. A nice little solo.

Jack has a very unique tone and style. He's come up with some of the best pounding riffs I've ever heard. He's got a little Neil Young in his soloing style.

Paul McCartney-will go down like the proverbial lead balloon, but best bass player I have ever heard.
Plus great vocalist (Witness "Oh Darling", "Let it be", "Hey Jude" "All My Loving", "Paperback Writer ", "Penny Lane" "Eleanor Rigby" and "Here,There and Everywhere".)
Did I forget to mention that he also single-handedly wrote all of the above?
Well, anyway......

McCartney didn't single-handedly write all of Eleanor Rigby, but I get your point.

The Jesus/Abraham/Muhammad/Vishnu/Buddha/Ra/Odin/Zeus/Jupiter/Mormon Jesus of prog... Robert Fripp.

His talent lies not only in how good of a songwriter he was and his technical ability. But he also knew when to step back and let his band mates take the lead. Considering the quality of King Crimson's work in spite of all the line-up changes and him being the only constant, he gain a ton of credit just with one of his musical pursuits alone. Between the work with Brian Eno, Andy Summers, The Talking Heads, David Bowie and even Microsoft (perhaps the only redeeming feature of Vista was he designed the soundscapes and noises) and Frippertronics, the man is a genius in my book and has my vote.

Not bad for a guy who looks like your math teacher...

J Mascis should be in the discussion.

Dude creates entire albums all on his own.

Quote:
After fulfilling his contractual obligations to Blanco y Negro in the UK and Sire/Reprise in the US, Mascis holed up in his home studio in Amherst, MA, which he named Bob's Place after his pet bulldog. Recording 99% of the instruments on the recordings, he emerged from the studio with the first J Mascis + The Fog album, More Light, an album title inspired by Mascis's growing interest in "hugging saint" Ammachi.

J Mascis + The Fog - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lol Its hard to tick me off. but The White Stripes are very minimalistic. And Sunshine of Your Love was a pretty simple riff played over and over. Try this:
The Raconteurs Live Bonnaroo 2008 Blue Veins Jack White solo - YouTube

The begininning is a little messed up but its better in a bit.
