Greatest Guitarists Ever
« see full list
Why is this guy constantly overlooked?! So many of these 'Best Guitarist' lists are based on musicians who had a few great songs or a couple of great albums, or the choices are largely based on popularity - I find this disgusting! Steve Lukather is technically brilliant, has creative flair and instantly recognisable individual style; not only has he learned the academics of music but he plays with his heart and soul too. All TRUE musicians respect him for his abilities and he's worked with so many of the greatest artists of all time. Let's not forget he also writes, sings, plays piano and is a thoroughly decent guy who has been inspiring music lovers for nearly 40 years - So WHY doesn't he get the respect he deserves?! What more does this man have to do? Maybe if he'd died young, fickle joe public would have sat up and noticed him. Well I totally appreciate him - as well as contributing from the shadowy wings to scores of bestselling songs by other artists, whether solo or with Toto I recognize him as one of the most truly outstanding guitarists ever and he deserves a place up there with the real Greatest.
Steve, Every year he comes up with something new on the guitar that just makes your mouth drop! I would love to see him jam with his best bro' Eddie
Van Halen, like ALL the best guitarist's Steve has his own sound, It's a shame a lot more people don't know how good he is, Mostly it's because of his band Toto, their record company(just like poor Cheap Trick! )would keep the band in a strangle hold making sure ONLY Ballad's were released as singles, Also the music press have a lot to answer for, They gave Toto and Lukather no respect at all! Long live TOTO & LUKATHER!
He's the best!
I'll never heard what a great sense of melody
So, he wrote beautiful songs with toto
The most versatile and soulful guitar player on the world. He should be in top 5 even though I would put him as N°1. He's also one of the most hard-working session musicians on the planet. He has played on over 1200 records. All famous guitar players like Slash, Kirk Hammett,... Got nothing on him. He's definitely on a much higher level.
This guy should at least be in top 15!! He's a genius with that guitar, a true sessionist. He can play any style, never mind the Toto (even though he makes some great solos there) but he is also a studiomusician, played on over 1200 cds!! He is a true guitar hero!
Not many guitarists can play both fast and soulful at the same time. Steve Lukather is a true marksman in the guitar business!
Respect to this guy. He is the reason many guitarists even start to play guitar.
An absolute GOD 2 me. Your lickx are siblime an your timeing between each note simply Amazing!.. An you can sing. You really do have some complex stuff, its just not evry1 love's to listen, over an ova..
There are some astonishingly gifted guitarists in this list but when the likes of jeff beck, schon, Hendrix and what must the biggest injustice, "Luke" @ 82 and all below slash... Are you kidding me? Please get real
A true master - awesome guitarist and super smooth, soulful vocalist. Checkout the Toto live in Paris 1990 videos... Steve, I salute you
Steve is... Great person, one of few great living musicians, awesome and origial guitar player and singer, also great songwriter.
I recommend every livig soul to study this guy, his playing and his music.
Without doubt one of the worlds greatest guitarists. 82nd on this list is a little strange he should be much much higher, at least top 10 in my humble opinion
Luke is better than all others. Those who don't know this simply don't know who he is, mostly because he is a humble human being. Google him and do some research and you will quickly change your tune.
Not only a master on the guitar... Steve Lukather has one of the best male singing voices I've ever heard... and his song wrtiting... out of this world! Luv ya Luke!
Luke is my idol!... long live Luke!... he's done some champion stuff over the years... he should be top 20 at the very least...
there's probably only 3 or 4 people on the list that could deserve to be listed before Steve... why is he down here at 80?
Best guitarist ever. His version of 'While my guitar gently wheeps' just sends chills down my spine
This is simply the true genius.
Nobody can touch his incedible mix of soul, sound and knowledge, of what he is doing.
Luke's god 👍
The most well rounded and emotive rock player who can also sing well and write awesome rock songs.
Absolutely incredible artist!
emotionally and technically
how he can be so under rated?
Steve can play anything on guitar better than anyone! Most under rated player out there!
See and hear his technique... What songs? More than 1.000...
Anyone who can play guitar past the basics knows that Luke is way better than most on this list
