Kotzen is an absolute monster. Probably the most talented all around frontman in rock now with his amazing guitar style and his tremendous vocals.

He’s doing a solo tour in a few months that I might go to, but I don’t know any of his solo material. The Winery Dogs are my favorite band of the last half decade though.

Another ridiculously talented player. A musicians musician like countryman Gary Moore. In his over 20 year career, Rory never once played to trends and always stayed true to his roots.

Richie has 20 solo albums so it would be pretty hard to catch up. I feel the same as you about the Winery Dogs. I caught their first show ever in the United States at B.B. King's and have seen them three more times since then. For me to stand in a club at my advanced age it really has to be something. The Winery Dogs never disappoint.

I was kinda surprised that he wasn't mentioned.

About Prince...I honestly feel that the vast majority of people think he's so great because of one guitar solo. While there is no denying, the While My Guitar Gently Weeps solo was epic in its grandeur, what else has he done? Dez Dickerson was his lead guitarist up until Purple Rain. The bulk of his output after that was not guitar oriented at all. I think it's all based on the fact that the guy made very rare appearances on TV and to see him next to the old guard was definitely something different.

Interesting, with all the top notch talent that sat in with Steely Dan, that you name Walter Becker.  Becker himself talked about Steely Dan becoming himself, Donald Fagen and session players by the time they recorded Pretzel Logic and how, for the first time, he felt totally outclassed.  Are there any songs where you particularly like Becker's work?

Hmmmm, not so sure I agree with that assessment, but maybe.  

I've always been a fan of his music, and in high school one of my teachers said, his singing and songwriting will always overshadow his guitar playing, but that in his opinion Prince was one of the greatest guitarists ever.  From that point I started paying attention to his guitar playing.  The solos on Purple Rain and Darling Nikki kick all kind of ass.  I saw him live once and he took turns playing every instrument and was awesome at all of them.  
I've heard other people talk about the greatness of his guitar playing long before the My Guitar Gently Weeps performance.  The Super Bowl performance was huge too. (Unless I'm mistaken, that was before the My Guitar performance at the R-N-R HOF.)

Maybe this is just a case of my personal experience influencing the beliefs of what others thought of Prince.  Who knows?
On a sidenote, I always liked what Dez brought to the band.  He had that sweet rising sun headband, and his deep vocals contrasted Prince's soft and high vocals. "cuz life is just a party, and parties weren't meant to last..."
