Here's a strange question

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by ImANerdyPunk, Dec 26, 2002.

  1. OK, so I know you've all seen hundreds of threads asking "who's the best bassist?" or "who's your favorite bassist?" Well here's something similar, but I'm sure most of us will have to think a little bit harder to answer this one.

    Who is the best and/or your favorite guitarist ?

    My votes go out to Chris Cheney of The Living End, Lars Frederiksen of Rancid, and Joe Perry of Aerosmith
