We always get different answers for the 80s and under rockers, but what about people from late 90s - early 2000s.... Let hear who you guys like to listen to in terms of skill, passion, and just creativity.

I don't have many favorites from the new age but top two are

1. Mark Tremonti
2. Synyster Gates

not a big list but these two guys stand out. Despite what people may think of the bands it has to be agreed apon that they both have skill but also developed a unique sound that isnt based just around how fast they can play.. althought they can shred pretty good. Maybe they don't get recognition now but maybe in 10 more years they will be more recognized

scraping the barrel of the restrictions?

there are very few good guitarists who've come out in recent years. most talented bands take a while to get noticed, so when they do, they may already have 2 or 3 albums behind them. the majority of bands who are genuinely new AND known by more than a handful of people are popular acts, and **** knows most of them are talentless. the Arctic Monkeys can lick my gently wrinkled sack.

EDIT: that said, the late 90s was 10 years ago. ****.
