Ritchie Blackmore

His Highway Star solo sends chills through me every time I hear it and is in my opinion the greatest solo ever. Pictures of Home, Burn, Man on the Silver Mountain, I've never heard any other guitar player come close to matching Blackmore's riffs and solos on these songs especially. Satriani isn't too far behind Blackmore, but Blackmore has been creating and performing stratospheric guitar work since the 60s and his works haven't been matched yet.
