Thanks!

Finally someone agrees, you look at how awesome he plays on Money for Nothing & Solid rock, I mean at times he plays better than Clapton!

I like Knopfler too! I put Petrucci down, but anyone who's heard the solo at the beginning of the live rendition of "The Spirit Carries On" off Score cannot deny the influence that Mark Knopfler's "Local Hero/Wild Theme" had on Petrucci.

Synyster gates with Petrucci in a close second.
Even though Petrucci is better, I like Syn's style more.
