    If Playing by the strict rules of going for just the one player, for me it would have to George Harrison. If I had to add a second, Scott Gorham.

    The Iommi discography for me. Easy choice.
    Check out my band: Bevar Sea

    Tough call for me...I'd have to draw out of a "hat"

    Zeppelin/Blackmore/Marino/BOC/Pink Floyd

    If I could get me one of those hats Donthegreek's using I'd say Eric Johnson, Paul Gilbert, Joe Satriani and Brad Paisley.

    If I have to stick by the rules then it's Eric Johnson 100%.

    The only band that tops Eric Johnson in the "only music for the rest of my life" category is The Beatles but in their case it's not about the contribution of the guitar work and I believe that's what this thread is about.

    Hendrix!

    Van Halen is a close second though.

    If it has to be guitar, probably EVH or Jake E Lee...

    Otherwise I'd say George Harrison, because 90% of it would Beatles and I could listen to them forever.

    I'd say Beatles are a valid and good choice.

    Now Brad Paisley, that was a little unexpected for me! I'm slightly familiar with some of his work, but I'll have to check him out more if you hold him in such high regard.

    Was listening to Eric Johnson yesterday, and that's also a superb choice. He's not the most prolific musician, granted, but you always know that when he does release an album, it's going to be sublime...

    For me it would have to be Ritchie Blackmore as he has the most bang for the buck.

    With Ritchie I get:

    Deep Purple
    Rainbow
    Blackmores Night

    I also get legendary musicians:

    Cozy Powell
    David Coverdale
    Glenn Hughes
    Jon Lord
    Ronnie Dio
    Ian Gillan
    Joe Lynn Turner
    Graham Bonnet

    I'd have ro go for someone whose still fairly active and hope that he remains active for a number of years, so for that reason I'd pick Slash. Others that I'd considered were Steve Lukather purely because he's played on thousands of things and Richie Kotzen.
