Hmmm...I don't have a lot of opinion on this as I don't think a band needs a stellar guitarist to be great, but here are 5 of the best off the top of my head...not really in order (after all, this is art not science):

Doug Martsch
Ted Leo
Jack White
Johnny Greenwood
Billy Corgan

Hmm, yeah, that seems about right...came out better than I thought.

Actually, I just realized I should have put somebody from the Wrens in there, but I wouldn't know which one because they're both so good. Please see them in concert if you have a chance!

Well I guess you could say that they're rather obvious and unimaginative choices.

YES! I'm the first person to write

Crispian Mills - Kula Shaker

..but I don't know why that's something to celebrate.

So...

Noel Gallagher - Oasis
Billy Corgan - Smashing Pumpkins
Graham Coxon - Blur
Matt Bellamy - Muse
Crispian Mills - Kula Shaker

I'd also like to say Jonny Greenwood and Jack White too, because they're great.

Ah ****, John Squire too.

Why is Noel Gallagher such a funny choice to you? Still can't argue with greenwood and coxon, i would have put squire there but it says five.

What's wrong with Noel? He aint the best, but still a very talented songwriter.
