Number two

My top 25 hard rock/metal guitarist countdown is almost at a close. Number two is...

Tony Iommi

This is the man who changed not just metal and hard rock, but all heavy music. Sabbath's guitarist may not be the greatest technical player of all time, but he more than made up for it with deep tones and the off the cuff bursts. He could pull so much energy out of a few notes and then just run like crazy with some other passages.

***So that leaves just one left. May have that one posted some time this weekend.

Its about damn time. Tony always gets overlooked and it drives me crazy. He invented the sound we love, how can he not be at or near the top of the list. Great pick.

Tony rules! Who will be #1? My vote is for Link Wray.
