Metalisart's favorite guitarists

Underrated, overrated... gimme what ya got.

Let's start with...

Mr Red Special himself, Brian May.



How many musicians have a book dedicated to their instrument?
How many musicians use almost exclusively an instrument they built with their father?
How many guitarists can say that they played the only non Iommi-guitar solo on a Sabbath album?

Not too many, ey?

Well, Brian can. His instantly recognizable tone sounds like a little orchestra, full on when needed, perfectly in the context of the song when asked.

Forever indeed.

Proof? Tie Your Mother Down

Incredible player for one of the top ten greatest bands ever. Dragon Attack, Stone Cold Crazy, Keep Yourself Alive, Tear It Up, Ogre Battle, and One Vision are some of the other awesome riff songs he has written.

EVH played the opening solo & wrote the main riff in "Evil Eye" on the Cross Purposes album. He wasn't credited at the time because of VH's long standing partnership with Warner Brothers.

Yeah

But there's only one big solo in WDC, so...

Btw, be prepared for a big disappointment, Eddie is not on this list.

It's time to rock or bust...

With our first duo,

Angus & Malcom Young







2014 has been a tuff year, with Mal sinking deep into dementia (which already manifested itself during & before "Black Ice" in 2008-2010 ) and Phil Rudd getting busted for losing his teeth, I mean owning meth and cannabis.

However, with a new album about to be released and one of music's most successful careers, we should focus on the good things.

Like the tightest one two punch in hardrock, rock, metal or whatever the hell you wanna call it. Every AC/DC album is the same, but we wouldn't want it any other way.
3 chords & a few words say it all: Let there be AC/DC.

Proof: Shoot To Thrill
