    I like this guy. Of course I'm prejudiced because he lives in Texas.

    Ive always thought Richie Sambora was a better vocalist than JBJ, and he has a great feel with his playing too.
    He's famous but underrated.

    I'm surprised no-one has mentioned Clapton. He certainly gets my vote.

    Clapton has been so good for so long and has been discussed so much that for some it's cool to hate him. But if he knocked I'd sure open the door...

    'Best' is so subjective, but Lowell George from Little Feat was pretty good at both!

    this has been covered here before:

    clapton has been the most monetarily successful and the most world-widely known.

    vince gill, john fogerty, willie nelson, bb king and quite a few others follow...
