Ed, if I didn't have grey hair already............
Jimi Hendrix the guitar equilibrist who has inspired so many succeeding him - or 'Old Slowhand' who has mastered the art of playing guitar like no others. - And then I can't help looking for BB King although it may be argued that he played more blues than rock.

That's exactly why he's not on the list. The thrill is gone!

Hi Jessica.
Who do you think should be removed to fit him in?
Thanks.

Well, I don't know, I thought I'd leave that up to you. But definitely not Satriani. :)

(And it's okay if you can't fit him in.)

Jessica, I read his bio. I am not familiar with Steve or the Dixie Dregs from the 1970's
But his overall contribution impressed me.
Recommend some of his music and guitar work that I should listen to.
Kinda feel stupid not knowing who he was, being a D.J. and also being the same age as Steve!!!
:):)
I put him in at #14
Cheers
Ed

I actually haven't listened that much to the Dregs or Steve Morse myself, but I know he's a great guitarist, so thank you for adding him. :)

The Dixie Dregs are an instrumental jazz rock band; here is their first album from 1976:

I also found this solo by Steve that demonstrates his skills:

Perhaps add Neal Schon of Journey?  They were around in the 70's, not to mention the even earlier work he did.
