He was playing loud and experimenting with volume, but his notes were blues-rock all the way.


The Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame's video montage on the roots of heavy metal focusses on three guitarists: Pete Townshend, Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix.


The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame isn't the most credible source in the world. I've never heard any metal guitarist mention Clapton. At all.

What's "metal" to you? The goalposts keep moving on that one. Eddie Van Halen says that Eric Clapton is his primary influence.

Little Richard also has influence all over hard rock, does that make him a hard rock artist?

The question isn't whether Clapton is a metal guitarist, but how substansive his influence is.

What would be the greatest guitar album from Lifeson?

I'm gonna say Hemispheres but it's really tough.

I'd personaly place Paranoid instead of masters of reality in top 10, that album made more kids wanna pick up a guitar and do the iron man or paranoid riff.

Think blizzard of ozz is worth a spot in top 25

IMO texas flood is quite overrated on these boards, definitely it is a good album, but here everybody regards it as the album that brought back the blues to mainstream and ... while rory gallagher was doing this already for a while.

Maybe a thin lizzy album somewhere in top 30, they had a bit of influence with their twin guitar sound.

I guess Elephant from the white stripes could be on this list too, not too high though

I'd also put wheels of fire in top 25

Welcome back, Fox. You're probably right about that actually. To be honest, any of the first 3 could do.

Doubtful, but you never know.

Gallagher came along at a time when blues was still pretty common. In the early 80's, it was considered all but dead and SRV definitely helped to 'revive' it and spark an interest back in the music in general.

So did Wishbone Ash, though they weren't as broadly well known.

Agreed. Killer album.

Definitely.

And we should have some Shadows in here, Hank B. Marvin was a real hero back in the days.

I agree with Hemispheres for Lifeson's crowning glory.

gminer,
Bolin was absurdly talented, from what little I've heard. I will check those links when I get home from work.

But I remember a studio tune called Post Toastee that blew my mind.

Siamese Dream By Smashing Pumpkins should be on the list, and in the top 30...its pretty much a guitar jerk off session.

As far as alternative releases go, its far ahead of Ten in terms of technical prowess, its probably the most guitar oriented album of the 1990s as far as alternative rock goes..
