This is back in 2007, just to give you an idea iPod nanos were squear back then and an iPhone barely existed, I think.
Rolling Stone, which a lot of you hate to death, wrote a weird article on the next generation of guitar gods.
Someone that MIGHT become legendary as Jimi hendrix, Jimmy Page, Duane Allman, and Eric Clapton of course.
The three were John Mayer, Derek trucks, and John Frusciante.

What are YOUR next guitar gods?
Probably under the age of 40 and became famouse during the 90's or 00's.

Mayer is a good singer, but his music isn't that interesting to be honest.
Derek Trucks on the otherhand is awesome, with the tone he creates with his slide.
When he plays the brown note, it shoots through your spine and gets you standing.

Laiho's so sloppy he drips around the edges, so no.

Joe Bonamassa needs more mentioning.

Wow, good to see some love for John Frusciante.

For me they'd be Satch, Buckethead... and maybe Petrucci.

Yeah Satch should be there to.....does Steve Vai also count as a modern Guitar god?
He`s my favourite guitarist

+1 to that. Although I'd agree. Frusciante would have to be there to and Synester Gates certainly is a freakin awesome guitarist. I'd probably add Kirk Hammet to this list, not because I think he's the best but because he's so popular.

Missing from the list is Tom Morello I reckon. He's done some crazy and awesome **** with his guitar.
The gear:

* Epiphone Les Paul Custom
* Schecter Jeff Loomis Signature 7 String
* Fender Squier P Bass
* Blackstar Stage HT-60
* Original Crybaby
* EHX Small Clone
* Boss DD-3

Nah, Satch and Vai are a bit too old I guess.
Satch is already 50 and Vai is almost that age.
Someone much more modern.

Claudio Sanchez and Synyster Gates are great examples.

I feel that guitarists like Buckethead for exsample, that stand away from the crowd will be the type that are remembered. Like how Hendrix created a new sound that revolutionized guitar from then on, the inovative guitarists,and not just the most skilled, of our time will be the most remembered,

Neither of them stand out in any way, so no. Not really.

Quote by NakedInTheRain
Matt Bellamy has been already been hailed as the third Jimi Hendrix (the second being EVH) by Total Guitar magazine.


Shame about his style being stolen entirely from Tom Morello then.
#27
john5- his way of playing is really cool and unorthodox, like chicken pickin' and banjo in the middle of a full on shred metal song.

mark morton - besides from being an absolutely sick guitar player, with almost unlimited technical proficiency he also has his own tune and style and i thik that's the most important thing.

alexi - i disagree with the sloppy playing. i find his style pretty clean, and like the two others he has his own tune and way that makes him recognizable.

Petrucci, Laiho, Satch, Buckethead. Can't think of many.

Maybe Dave Navarro, Synster gates and the guys from Killswitch.

Paul Waggoner, James Malone, Luke Hoskin, Chris Arp, Michael Keene, and COLIN ****ING MARSTON!!!.

John and Chris especially.

That reminds me. Fredrik Thordendal and Paul Masvidal are beastly as well.
I wish I could see the Cynic/Meshuggah/Faceless tour. But they aren't coming any where near A-town.

green day's guitarist, billie joe, is actually a great musician. maybe not in a technical sense, but his writing skills and his solos (not br00talz) always fit the song so perfectly its impressive ... maybe people think he sucks because his solos are usually only three or four differant notes (except judge's daughter has one kickass solo in it) even though they fit the song superbly
