Just another brainteaser folks! As always when you compile a list quickly you realise you've missed someone. Anyways, here goes!
1.JEFF WATSON - Night Ranger. The guys a brilliant player but also has a great feel for melody. Plays the neoclassical stuff more than Gillis but boy do they work well together.
2.STEVE MORRIS-Heartland.Anyone who's played with Ian Gillan has to be pretty bloody good. With a voice like Chris Ousey in Heartland, how can you go wrong? New album which promises to be a corker just about out!
3.PAUL GILBERT-So awesomely melodic. If only Mr Big had rocked out more. Potential of that band never realised. Gilbert's solo stuff is pretty good. From the Yngwie Malmsteen school!
4.TOM SCHOLZ-Boston.One of my old favourites. A trained engineer and inventor to boot!
5.NEAL SCHON-Journey.Great player, I only wish he pulled THE STRINGS in Journey so they would do one heavy, mean assed melodic masterpiece before they split.
6.BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN-The guy just writes fantastic songs and whilst not a brilliant player he's more than competent. Much like Tom Petty in that regard.
7.STEVE HOWE-Yes and Asia. Fantastically gifted, love his work in Yes, Asia even more. Solo album Turbulence was a masterpiece!
8.VINNY BURNS-Ten/Hugo/Asia.Ten - great band,very cool guitarist.
9.ROLAND GRAPOW -Helloween. Frankly, I could choose from any of the Helloween guitarists. Technically, they are right at the top but they never forget the importance of melody.Malmsteen school of guitar.
10.KENNY KAOS- Distance/Pokerface.This guy is sensational. If you haven't heard 'The Distance' - the collaboration with Chris Ousey of Heartland get it! Massive, ballsy hook filled AOR. Pokerface is mighty fine as well!
Oh damn, I just realised I forgot about Blackmore, Malmsteen and Gillis!

What do you guys think! Cheers.KAOS FAN!
