    Richie Kotzen. Fantastic player, but the only thing i've ever really liked was his work with Poison on the Native Tongue album.

    Seems like some of our experiences depend on 2 basic things:

    1) Where is this entertainer in the trajectory of this career? Has he achieved so much success and acclaim that, by the time we grow up enough to discover him, he's mostly fulfilling obligations to his fans, his band, his family, his entourage, his record label; his business combine?

    2) Is the individual primarily a guitarist, or is he first an Entertainer? I mean, the only person I can think of who is both a superlative guitarist AND a superlative entertainer of a audience of guys like me, would be Richard Thompson. Everyone else is a little weak in one aspect or the other - sometimes more than a little weak.

    Thinking about this the other night: More than once, someone who knew told me "Bubba, you're a decent player, sometimes a decent writer.......but you're about the worst entertainer I can think of". Funny, that so little of the words of TDPRI are about entertaining people and if you can't get that part right, the praise we will have for the guitarist will be conditional and in some cases hollow.

    Mark Knopfler.

    I've watched documentaries about him, read articles,etc, but rarely like his choons.

    Jeff Beck.

    Also John Frusciante. I'm hit or miss on RHCP material.
