Not to take anything away from Leslie West, but people that actually know their way around an instrument. Regardless of genre. How can Howard be an AGT judge? How could he judge anything out of his comfort zone? He is completely musically illiterate. PERIOD. So show someone that in your opinion plays (or haspalyed) an INSTRUMENT that people should pay attention to. I'll start with the guy he made fun of in the studio that happened in with Cyndi Lauper. Howard, the KOAM, had never heard of Jonny Lang. Sometimes they may be just guys drawn together playing the same song with three very distinct styles, which Howard would never figure out either. But if he's looking for hot chicks? He's never had Orianthi on either. Hell. She can keep up with Steve Vai... So come on Stern people. People with a mastery of their instruments. Lets see them!
