Ah yes, Eric Johnson. The guy behind "Cliffs of Dover," "Desert Rose" and "Trademark."

Now, this guy is truly an amazing guitarist! Technique, speed, a total tone freak! I think he's such a perfectionist that he drives himself crazy, though.

Whenever great players are mentioned, his name should always come up. One thing that I thought that was hilarious a few years back was Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Guitar Plaers" list. They had Johnny Ramone and Jerry Garcia ranked way ahead of Johnson, and Al DiMeola wasn't even on the list. Makes me wonder who exactly voted on it and if they'd even know how to hold a guitar...LOL!!!!

That's "100 Greatest Guitar Players" list...my proofreading leaves a lot to be desired...!!!

Wow.....ONLY 39% YES???? Are you people CRAZY?? Do you even know who Eric Johnson IS???

Those who voted "no" to Eric Johnson are probably the same people who think Richie Sambora from Bon Jovi is the greatest guitarist of the last quarter-century...as well as the same people who give "artists" like Jay-Z or Kanye West a "yes" vote

Some people just don't have a clue, DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE VOTING
