I don't disagree on those points. I also prefer May and Knopfler. I just don't agree that Clapton is "the most overrated guitarist ever".
Someone of that caliber is someone that's a mediocre player at best and consistently gets their cocks sucked by Rolling Stone or any other alt/hipster magazine.
Kurt Cobain, Jack White, The Edge, Matt Bellamy, etc.
