We assembled a panel of top guitarists and other experts to rank their favorites and explain what separates the legends from everyone else. Best known for the gargantuan riff at the heart of Deep Purple 's "Smoke on the Water," Ritchie Blackmore helped define heavy-metal guitar by mixing intricate classical composition with raw-knuckled blues rock. He looked back toward early European music with his next band, Rainbow — even learning cello to write 's stomping "Stargazer" — and now explores Renaissance-style fingerpicking with Blackmore's Night. But it's his Deep Purple work that influenced a generation of handbangers. Muddy was there at the beginning, in the Delta, actually sitting at the feet of Charley Patton and Son House. He was a kid when those guys were in their prime.

While he was as innovative as Jimmy Page , as tasteful as Eric Clapton , and nearly as visionary as Jimi Hendrix , Jeff Beck never achieved the same commercial success as any of those contemporaries, primarily because of the haphazard way he approached his career. After Rod Stewart left the Jeff Beck Group in , Beck never worked with a charismatic lead singer who could have helped sell his music to a wide audience. Furthermore, he was simply too idiosyncratic, moving from heavy metal to jazz fusion within a blink of an eye. As his career progressed, he became more fascinated by automobiles than guitars, releasing only one album during the course of the '90s. All the while, Beck retained the respect of fellow guitarists, who found his reclusiveness all the more alluring. Beck began his musical career following a short stint at London's Wimbledon Art College.
Their innovative approach to heavy-sounding blues , rhythm and blues and rock was a major influence on popular music. The first Jeff Beck Group formed in London in early and included guitarist Jeff Beck , vocalist Rod Stewart , and rhythm guitarist Ronnie Wood , with bass players and drummers changing regularly. The line-up went through months of personnel changes, notably no fewer than four drummers before settling on Aynsley Dunbar and switching Wood to bass. Beck signed a personal management contract with record producer and manager Mickie Most , who had no interest in the group, only in Beck as a solo artist.
