Oh, yeah, man. The way Gilmour just stands there and plays while the lights do all the work. That's clearly what stage presence is all about.

Another guy who lit up the stage for me was Rory Gallagher. I only ever saw him in small venues, probably 500-800 size. But it always felt like it was one of your mates on stage in front of you. No pretension, just a battered strat, a denim cut-off and hard, sweaty bouncing blues rock and roll.

I've never seen Duane either, but I think he's just one of those guys that stands there and plays for the most part.

Gary Moore during the 80s was also pretty awesome ....

Brian May has quite a presence. Yes, I know he's no top 5 and he just stands while playing most of the time. But there's just something so cool and classy in his stance that makes you watch him.

I agree with you, stage presence is not just jumping around the stage like a crazy but there is the charisma component to be considered as well and May have alot of it.
Btw check him during the Queen + PR tours or even better his BM band shows, he really did anything like singing, playing, running all over the stage and having a great time with the audience.

I don't agree mainly to the fact Ace and Page are in that top 5; I also think Angus is a serious candidate for the top 5.
