All fine players, but never are mentioned with the "greats" [for good reason or not]. Who turns your volume knob up best?

Lifelong LeTekro fanboy here. Kmorg even got me a personalized and autographed tour poster a few years ago, that is a prized possession.

Tough choices there. I'll go with Glenn Tipton I guess. Demartini and LeTekro are right up there too.

Reb Beach is my favorite of these. I love his work on all of the Winger albums, Dokken's Erase the Slate and the last few Whitesnake albums. Killer live performer too.

Tipton, because Priest are my favorite band of the bands the guitarists listed are associated with.

I went with Paul G, but Reb "The Lord of the Strings" is extremely underrated.

I always loved Vivian Campbell's work on those first 2 Dio albums. I went with him. But that's quite a fine list of guitarists.

When I got into hard rock in the late 80s, Reb was the first player that blew my mind with his smooth but very fast soloing. Back then I really liked the first Winger album, but moved on quickly to much heavier bands. But I still like Reb's playing.

I suck at starting convos, otherwise. Except with all your girlfriends [ooops - was just supposed to think that...]

Although I chose Paul Gilbert, I also like Warren DeMartini, Mattias Jabs, Reb Beach, Wolf Hoffman and Glenn Tipton.

In a very close race: Warren DeMartini > Glenn Tipton > Vivian Campbell > Mathias Jabs > Wolf Hoffman. This is a list, depending on my mood, could change by the day.

I went with my gut, which said Vivian Campbell.

On another day I probably would've picked Paul Gilbert, Reb Beach, or Matthias Jabs.

If I could vote "other", I would've thrown Jake E. Lee in there too.

Tommy Thayer??? Come on.

There are at least 30 other 80s guitarists you could've put there.
