You don't honestly think that Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Billy Gibbons, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray, etc took lessons off you tube, do you??
"You dont find a style, a style finds you." - Keith Richards "Every once in a while I'll call up Eddie Van Halen and ask, "Found that fourth chord yet?" - Billy Gibbons "To me a guitar is kind of like a woman. You don't know why you like 'em but you do." - Waylon Jennings "Every time you pick up your guitar to play, play as if it's the last time." - Eric Clapton "The Telecaster has two sounds - a good one and a bad one." - Jimi Hendrix "My guitar is not a thing. It is an extension of myself. It is who I am." - Joan Jett "A good solo is like a book. It will start out in a phrase, it will go on in paragraphs, and then it will have a great ending." - Steve Vai "If you pick up a guitar and it says 'Take me, I'm yours,' then that's the one for you." - Frank Zappa
One I realized immediately that I left off, Rod Stewart, and of course, *** Jagger, Ozzie Osbourne, The Boss, Jon Anderson of Yes, Joni Mitchell, Jimi Hendrix, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Bob Seger, Elvis, Stevie Wonder, Steve Winwood, Lou Graham of Foreigner, B.B King, Little Richard, Eric Burden, Keith Relf of The Yardbirds, Al Stewart, Gordon Lightfoot, James Taylor, Jim Morrison, Chuck Berry, James Brown, and I'm sure there are a few more. We were *** lucky to have grown up with all these great talents, feel sorry for todays' kids who have such mediocre music and non descript artists to listen to.
"So, Jimi, who's your favourite guitarist?". Jimi Hendrix - "Billy Gibbons" :)
David Lynch on his guitar heroes: "Jimi Hendrix is No. 1. But right alongside of him is Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top"
Jeff Beck with Billy Gibbons and Tal Wilkenfeld covering Jimi Hendrix this time. Some serious talent here. Tal is the bass player and is amazing!
Jimi Hendrix once predicted that Billy Gibbons would be a "great guitar player one day." Jimi made those comments...
When asked on a talk show in the 70's Who do you like as a guitarist? Jimi Hendrix replied Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top...
The great blues legend, Buddy Guy, has said that the first song he learned to play on the guitar was "Boogie Chillen," by Detroit's John Lee Hooker. The song was released in 1948. Hooker works in a few lines about Detroit's Hastings Street, which was the hub of black owned businesses and night life in Detroit until The Fisher Freeway came through and tore up the neighborhood. This song was also a major influence on Billy Gibbons and ZZ Top, as well as Jimmy Page and Led Zeppelin and was the guitar inspiration for their "Whole Lotta Love" It fascinates me to think of how much Buddy Guy influenced a young Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix, and how those two influenced just about every rock guitarist that came after. So one could say that this John Lee Hooker song, recorded in 1948 at United Sound on Second Street in Detroit, was the foundation, paving stone, and building block of most of the rock'n'roll that came after.
When he appeared on The Tonight Show, Jimi Hendrix said future ZZ Top leader Billy Gibbons'd be the next big guitarist.
Before forming ZZ Top, Billy Gibbons was the lead guitarist of this Houston, TX, group, which released one album and a few singles in the late '60s. Their single "99th Floor" became one of the most famous vintage garage 45s after its inclusion on Pebbles, Vol. 2, but the Sidewalks actually leaned much more heavily toward psychedelic and blues-rock. In fact, the group supported Jimi Hendrix at one of his early U.S. gigs and Gibbons became one of Hendrix's first boosters on U.S. shores; strange as it may seem, Hendrix was quite impressed with Gibbons himself, even at this early juncture. The Moving Sidewalks never developed into anything more than a regional act, and are known primarily as a starting point for Gibbons.
actually Jimi Hendrix was once asked who his favorite guitarists were and near the top of his list was Billy Gibbons.

Jimi Hendrix and Billy Gibbons together in the same room. Awesome... Wait where's Billy Gibbons' beard!?
Jeff Beck & Billy Gibbons=2 masters of the Universe! You know you're the best when Billy Gibbons 55 second mark & the 1:32 mark just marvels & points at Jeff Beck's virtuoso performance. Don't forget that these two were the only two guitarist that Jimi Hendrix himself said were better than he was. It's just so depressing/sad that a small minority today knows who Jeff Beck is, & that number will dwindle in the coming years.
Greatest of all time and no Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, or Billy Gibbons? C'mon Stop trying to be so cool.
How boss did Billy Gibbons (who was essentially a nobody) feel when Jimi Hendrix said he was his favorite guitarist on national TV
Jimmy Page, Billy Gibbons, Jimi Hendrix. In that order. " Who are your 3 top favorite guitar players?"
