So who are your top 5 guitarists that you would cite as being your biggest influences? :)
I'm not sure I can put these in any semblance of order, but mine would be:

Steve Rothery
Paul Kossoff
Brian May
Jimi Hendrix
Stevie Ray Vaughan

I only have guitarists I like, as I've always failed miserably to sound anything like any of them. I haven't even so much as stolen a signature lick.

Slash inspired me to learn how to play guitar though.

Still I can't really play for shit, I just mess around on guitar so it's not like I would sound like any of these players :) But here are 5 who give me that "i want to play guitar like that" feeling.

Dean Ween,
Yamano Naoko (shonen knife)
Daron Malakian
Zacky Vengeance,
Kawakita Ryou (maximum the hormone).

(Edited. It's really hard to pick a top 5.)
