    Yeah, yeah; I guess everybody would like someone else to be on the poster as well. Really nice work, though! I on my hand miss Phil Lynott. Although he only played bass guitar, he could really strike a good pose! :-)

  2. Koss,

    This poster represents a snapshot of (mostly) immediately recognizable guitar icons, and not necessarily great guitarists. Hence no Uli Jon Roth or Michael Schenker. (Or for that matter, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, John Pettrucci or Eric Johnson.) Truly great guitarists don’t reach a level of pop-cultural penetration to get recognized in a crowd, sadly. Likewise, guys who were not great guitarists (Johnny Ramone, Kurt Cobain, etc.) are often guitar icons nonetheless.

  3. but no Dimebag Darrell? :(
    happy birthday dime, don’t believe em, you’re an icon!
