Pete Townshend hands down. Sure hes not Hendrix, but he was easily the Hendrix of rhythm players handsdown. Not to mention a phenomenal writer.

Piano dick had some good parts, but should have said "As the business man slowly gets boned", would have accented the whole dick feeling of the album

Belief is a beautiful armour but makes for the heaviest sword.

Randy Rhoads, Dweezil Zappa and Yngwie all have the biggest influences on me, I think. oooooo and John Mayer and SRV and Hendrix.
I'd probably go with Criss Oliva from Savatage or Eddie Van Halen. Dimebag Darrell's later 80s work was phenomenal IMO too, but his later stuff...Iunno. I've never been one for "BIG PHAT BL00Z METALZ Y'ALL"-type playing, and that's what Dime's later stuff sounds like to me(not saying he was a bad guitarist, he was still great IMO, but stylistically I really liked his 80s stuff better). Alex Lifeson from Rush and both Judas Priest's original guitarists(Richie Faulkner's a great technical player and I love his Facebook posts but I don't know of any stuff he's done outside of Priest and he's yet to record anything aside from gigs with them) are also pretty big influences on me too.

Nah, I prefer to tune lower. My tunings usually go into weird Hebrew symbols.
Hard to choose just one. Adam D, Oli Herbert, and Jeff Ling for my absolute favorites. Although I still have a couple more but I guess I'll leave it at that.
definatly my favorite... He a musical genius and herr is so emotional in his playing!!
George Lynch and (flame shield on) Synyster Gates. im not sure why everyone gives him so much bs. I'm not a huge fan of Avenged Sevenfold, but as far as modern metal goes, Synyster, imo, has the most emotional and articulate solos.)
