Name Your Top 5 Rock Guitarists You Seen Live
« on: February 18, 2021, 02:57:06 PM »
It don't matter how you do it.  I'm not much on metal but the Hammet guy from Metallica was great when I seen him.

5.  Gilmour
4.  Knopfler
3.  Page
2.  Prince
1.  Angus

I never saw Clapton, Van Halen, Brian May, Santana, Allman, Beck etc

I love that little Angus Young.  AC/DC the most fun concerts I ever seen.

5. Dickie Betts Allman bros several times. Never saw duane.
4. Johnny winter. An evening of the blues with bb king, muddy waters and james cotton. Great show. Wouldn't leave stage played 4 and 1/2 hrs for show not stadium like gig.
3. Jeff Beck with jam hamner.
2. Clapton @ 1975. Eric hr late and boozed up. But when hit first 3 chords of Layla to start show all forgiven by crowd. 30,000 crowd at spac.
1. Eddie van Halen- in small venue before first van Halen album released. 2 nd warm up band. space. Show.

Also saw Santana, Montrose, Aerosmith (joe perry) I'd give them honorable mention.

Saw ac/DC as warmup band for rush @ 76. Had 2nd or 3rd row in 3000 seat venue. Love them now didn't think much of then then. At end of show acdc guitarist Angus young turned around, dropped school boy shorts and mooned audience. I thought strange.

Randi Rhodes, leslie west  and joe walsh! tmbz1

The boc shows with buck dharma always ended with all 5 band members grabbing guitars even the drummer and jamming. Might have been on born to be wild.
