I saw them live a couple of years ago. It was awesome.

Such a question has many shifting answers.
I'll return later with examples of Zappa, Tommy Emmanuel, Al Di Meola, Eddie Van Halen, as well as my all-time favorite girl-guitar-duo: Sleater Kinney's Carrie Brownstein and Corin Tucker.
For now, one of my favorite Steve Vai solos (the last 8 bars, after he switches pickups, kill me):
I've always loved Eric Johnson.
I've got a ton of respect for Jack White too.
I love Eric Johnson, too, though I still don't believe him when he says that he can hear the difference between the batteries he puts in his pickups.
lol, that's a story I'm not aware of, but agree with you. *Please note I don't play guitar*
I'm sure I'll get blasted for my Jack white pick, but I like his style.
Nah, I like Jack White, too, but I'll forever remember the one White Stripes concert I went to as "the concert with the ugliest audience".
Inversely, Stereolab's was the prettiest.
