The weekly top 5 playlist – 19 December – The Greatest Guitarists of All Time

I’m sure Rolling Stone magazine had no intention of upsetting guitar god Joe Bonamassa when they published their recent list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, but they did. The fiery Bonamassa claimed that it wasn’t so much his exclusion from the list that struck a chord, but the fact that the folks at Rolling Stone had overlooked some of his most inspirational guitarists.  We’re quite fond of Joe, so we thought we’d put together a shorter list featuring a couple of guys he would probably have picked for his own list. Here’s to you Joe…

  1. Free – All Right Now (Paul Kossoff)
  2. Danny Gatton – Funky Mama
  3. Fleetwood Mac – Need Your Love So Bad (Peter Green)
  4. Jeff Beck – Goodbye Pork Pie/Brush with the Blues
  5. Eric Clapton – Have you Ever Loved a Woman?
