Bill Nelson, from the defunct group "BeBop Deluxe"! There are many great guitar "players", but very few that can actually make a guitar "sing". It is also unusual, that unlike many other guitarists, his live recording performances are actually better (technically as well as inspirationally) than his studio performances. His encore finale on the "Live in the Air Age" tour (1977) was a cover of Hendrix's "Purple Haze". Other than the vocal differences, one would swear that Hendrix's spirit was playing the guitar. I have NEVER heard any other cover of a Hendrix song that didn't sound like a cover instead of "the real deal"!
Please note: if you want to purchase the "Live in the Air Age CD", get the U.K. EMI pressing, not the sonically inferior "One Way Records" CD, which is total CRAP (as are all "One Way Records" CD's).
completely agree w/ Zappa, Prince, Edge (though both Zappa and Prince are certainly technically proficient!)....the others I don't know well

John Butler (check this guy out from down under!...jam band)
Lowell George from Little Feat
