my ultimate guitar hero is Ernest Anastasio III (Aka Trey)
tons of great ones...but after Jerry Garcia, Trey did for me for over 200 concerts and never let me down. Still doesnt, except for the drug arrest

Hands down...Stevie Ray. I have NEVER seen somebody with more 'feel', and 'touch' than that man.
That boy MUST have sold his soul to the devil...
I really can't believe that all the people that have mentioned Trey haven't said a word about Carlos Santana, listen to Lotus and you can tell what an influence Carlos was on Trey.
I'm listening to his solo on Ghost from Rochester '97 right now, and I might have to agree. Un-fucking-real. He always sounds unique and fresh, like I've never heard him solo before. He's just amazing. He can play so many styles, and it's possibly the best improviser I've ever heard. Many guitarists can't improvise, and unless they can, I don't know how they can be considered the greatest.
