How could I forget Eric Clapton ???
Ian McCulloch of The Icicle Works.
McCulloch was in Echo & the Bunnymen. Not a great guitarist, either.
I'm sorry, but you need to explain how Lou Reed is an elite vocalist....I have a hard time even referring to him as a "singer".....Is there something I missed from his music catalog? (No offense)
Paul Simon, and McCartney* (who's a great electric, acoustic, and bass player). And having established himself originally as a superstar blues guitarist, Eric Clapton worked very hard in his solo career to become an extremely good singer as well. Steve Winwood also has a fantastic voice, and can play a mean guitar when he wants to.
* Recent years excepted. It's sad listening to McCartney's recent solo work on the Beatles Channel on Sirius-XM, hearing how his voice has deteriorated.
Gilmour held his own
Stevie Ray Vaughan
John Mayer...sue me.
Funny, I love Keith's singing as a contrast to Jagger's, but I don't think anybody would qualify him as a "great" singer.
Buddy Guy, Luther Allison for Bluesmen. Tommy Shaw for rock. Definitely, Vince Gill for country.
Prince. Yep I went there
Excellent choice....forgot about him ( Major Tele guy too!)
Richie Sambora's pretty good too. Saw Bon Jovi about 10 years back and he could hit note's that Jon Bon Jovi couldn't.
James Taylor- not a shredder but fantastic acoustic player.
Gary Clark Jr
Jerry Garcia maybe?
Gary Clark Jr
Edit: I stand by my choices but was thinking current, newer guys (sorry I didn’t read the OP better).
Some good picks here already. Clapton, Cornell (very underrated guitarist), Kotzen all came to mind right away.
Josh Homme belongs on this list. Probably near the top for me. Annie Clark too.
