I have this Magazine called The 100 Greatest Guitar Heroes. I don't agree with some of the choices but I did not write the book. It's a few years old. Duane was # 26, which I did not agree with.

Anyway it had some musicians I never had hear music by, such as Eddie Hazel.

I was wondering if any of you had heard of these folks and any of their music.

John Fahey
Luther Perkins
Zoot Horn Rollo
Reggie Young
Barry Melton
Bernard Sumner
John McGeoch
Matt Bellamy
Bert Jansch
Nick Drake
Graham Coxon
Hank Marvin
Bernard Butler
Ron Asheton
Andy Gill
John Martyn
Kevin Shields
James Williamson
John Squire
Scotty Moore

I'm always open to learning some new "old" sounds.

Definitely Scotty Moore! Saw a thing on RAVE or some other channel awhile ago with Scotty, Markk Knofler, Eric Clapton, Albert Lee and Bill Wyman all doing the Elvis stuff Scotty is so famous for. Very cool.

Everything you need to know about Nick Drake. I've only ever heard a few of his songs, but I've liked what I've heard.

saw that special---Scotty was a true original in Rock n Roll---gave a distinctive sound to Elvis's musical sound & alot of the 60's British guys idiolized him as a player---& he sure is sweet sounding
Heard of Barry Melton---was he with Country Joe & the Fish?? can't recall....

Hey Kenny, Reggie Young is a Nashville session musician, has probably played on more songs than you can imagine. Pretty darn good picker.

Watch Barry Melton on the Monterey Pop dvd. I'd say he's pretty darn good!

I can vouch for John Fahey and Bert Jansch - fingerstyle players extraordinaire.

The closest you might find in the rock/pop word would probably be acoustic Jorma.

According to Jimmy Page, (many years ago), Bert Jansch had a huge influence on his playing.

John Fahey---Great acoustic player...similar to Leo Kottke, but different, as well
Barry Melton---Guitarist for Country Joe & The Fish
Bert Jansch---Guitarist for the English Folk/Rock band Pentangle
Hank Marvin---The Shadows guitarist...major non-blues influence on Peter Green
John Martyn---another great British Folk player
Scotty Moore---Elvis wouldn't have been Elvis and Rock & Roll wouldn't have been Rock & Roll without him!!

I like John Squire..Really gifted musician. He was the guitarist w/The Stone Roses(Manchester,UK). Unfortunately, he hasn't made a lot of music. There was a five year lag between the first and second(and final) Stone Roses album. Then, Squire formed another band, the Seahorses( I think they only made one album). He's also released a couple of solo albums( haven't heard those,though). Last I heard, he had given up music for painting full time( Squire's artwork was always featured on his bands' album covers.)

This show was on RAVE and a must see for any fan of Elvis or rock n' roll in general. Excellent gathering of talents, including Scotty.

Eddie Hazel is known for guitar work with Parliament-Funkadelic and George Clinton. The song "Maggot Brain" probabably has Eddie's best playing.

Zoot Horn Rollo was the guitarist for Captain Beefheart's Magic Band for a long while. I know he's on Trout Mask Replica, not sure off the top of my head what else. The Captain's music is certainly not for everybody, but if you appreciate Col. Bruce Hampton, Frank Zappa, etc. you should definitely check it out, if you haven't already.

The Stone Roses were a truly great band for a very limited time. Squire is no joke as a guitarist, he has fantastic tone and his solos on songs like "I Am The Resurrection" and "One Love" are melodic and imaginative. They were one of the first "jambands" in a way, especially in Europe, where they were huge for a while and had a rabid fanbase.

Some of you may remember their radio hit "Love Spreads" which had a nasty, very recognizable slide riff. If you heard it, you'd know which one I'm talking about. Nasty!

I read that Trout Mask Replica was his best as far as Guitar work.

Everybody knows Scotty Moore, as has been mentioned. Are Luther Perkins and Carl Perkins one and the same? Don't know any of the others. They probably don't know me either.

They were not the same person and not even kin to each other.

That's him. A fine melodic finger picker.

I like the compositions he did for those TV shows/mini-series, I didn't realize that he was the guitar player, too. No wonder he (I assume) chose guitar-oriented songs to feature during those episodes (one episode of The West Wing in particular featured a really great instrumental by Rick Vito called "Exotica By Night" )
