There are lots of great, late guitar players, and I'll let other folks mention them.

At the moment, my favorite late great guitar hero has to be Eric Roche.



His arrangements are amazing, and his use of guitar percussion is one of the coolest things i've ever seen (he was able to re-create the scratching of a Dj's turntable).

Van Halens "Jump" Arrangement

Cheers to you Eric Roche. Theres a dapper young asian kid down here that still thinks your the best.

Rather sadly there are many. One that stands out relatively recently and whom I miss though is Shawn Lane.

Cheers,

I really liked Randy Rhoads, but I want to say Cliff Burton, but I think he'd be in Bass Guitar Heaven, well R.I.P
