    I myself am going to second Eddie Van Halen, Jimmy Page and David Gilmour.

    edit: realized I had seconded my own nominee, and that's a no-no

    I used all my noms already, but hoping we can expand the musical spectrum, I'd like to suggest a few others.

    Roy Clarke

    Mark Knopfler

    Ry Cooder

    Chet Atkins

    Robert Johnson

    George VanEps


    I'm tempted to post some mp3 excerpts from these guys.

    Michael and Jan, Steve Howe was already in the tournament. He was one of my nominee's.

    I kind of wish I'd nom'd Willie Nelson. I saw him live a several months ago, he was very impressive.
