Note that I didn't ask who is the best, as that is too subjective.
There are so many, and I don't discount the mainstream ones either as they have to be good to be so popular.
Not in any order, but all good for me are.
Clapton, Knoffler, Slash, Yngwie Malmsteen, Jimi Hendrix, Pete Townsend, Brian May, Van Halen, Springsteen, Santana, lots more?

I thought everyone knew that Who is a firstbaseman. He doesn't play guitar.

There are a couple of favorites.

Stevie Ray Vaughn.

Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart.

Probably the best is Glenn Cambell.

Yep. The Ventures are talented too. Even Four Star Generral Babbit is a fantastic drummer after a long career in the Air Force.

I have something different for you. Orianthi (her name and her band's name) This is a female fronted band (my personal preference) from Australia, and Orianthi is both lead vocals, AND lead guitar. She plays some pretty heavy guitar, and her vocals are also great.
There are a couple of videos on You Tube where she trades licks with Steve Vai, and another of Steve Vai, Joe Satriani and her, or her and Richie Sambora, and another with her and Carlos Santana. She's also performed (back when) with Michael Jackson, and also with Alice Cooper.
Check her out, I think you'll be impressed.
