    I personally do not know him. And I prefer rock (than metal).

    Seems obvious, but... Hendrix? Did you mean to put him when you accidentally typed 'Slash'?

    I know, Sir. There are obviously more musicians I like, but I wanted to share only 10 from each category (only 7 keyb players 'cause I simply could not remember more :) ) Yes, Hendrix should be there too, but I like hard rock and this type of music more than psychedelia and the roots of modern rock; I know, weird, ey? :)

    and, ya know, now I realize that mr Tommy Emmanuel should definitelly be there too...

    Freddie Mercury has a very powerful voice, too, one of the best in rock

    As for the guitarists, may I suggest that you replace: Alex Lifeson, John Frusciante, Slash & David Gilmour with John Petrucci, Guthrie Govan, Alex Hutchings and perhaps Antoine Dufour/ Yngwie Malmsteen? Also surely Mike Portnoy should be in the drums list??

    Sorry, this is my list :) I am not kinda metal guy, although I might reconsider putting Petrucci in there. But obvious is that there will be no Petrucci without Lifeson. And no modern progrock without Gilmour.

    Hm, Ray Luzier is a very interesting choice.

    I paste musicians from my favourite bands, yes, because it's my list and I know only the musicians from bands I listen to. It's as simple as that.
