    Bob Brozman....Sad turn of personal events and subsequent suicide, but as a slide player and knowledgable expert on national guitars, second to none.

    I saw him in concert several times, chatted to him at music exhibitions where he was demonstrating four or five times times, and took part in a day course that he taught as well.
    Last time we met, he surprised me by walking up to me and greating me by name (I was most chuffed).
    A sad loss of a great talent.

    David Tronzo, with his work with the Lounge Lizards is worth a mention as a truly great inovator of slide tecnique. Maybe not everyones taste, but anyone who thinks a chrome vibrating dildo is a thing to play guitar with can't be all that bad!

    But my favourite...Zoot Horn Rollo....Bill Harkleroad.
    His work with the Magic Band and Captain Beefeart is incomparible.
    Here, with the (sadly) short lived band, Mallard...unfortunatly with sub-optimal sound quality

    It took 5 pages for someone to mention the late, great,
    Bob Brozman...thanks. He had off-the-charts chops, a genuine scholar & champion of slide guitar! Doug Cox is no slouch, himself

    Orville Johnson is also a good one...I once saw him about 20 years ago at the Port Townsend Blues Festival

    Lester Quitzau originally hails from Edmonton, like myself...recalling him from his early ‘80’s, Ambassador Hotel days

    I was thinking the same...

    And doesn't any body knows Eric Sardinas? For me is the best now, period

    It's pretty hard to pick one favorite, but I'm going to go with Fred McDowell.

    Johnny Winter, his version of Highway 61 revisited sends shivers up my spine, every time I hear it! The first time I heard him play "Mean Town Blues", is what got me hooked on bottleneck slide...
