There’s a really cool slide show on the AskMen.com web site (I understand that women can visit the site as long as they don’t ask any questions…!)
The slides depict 10 famous guitarists along with their equally famous guitars.
The idea behind the slide show goes like this:
“These iconic guitarists have owned hundreds of different instruments over the years, but the one thing all these men have in common is a deep love for that one special ax. Whether it’s a well-aged acoustic or a banged-up electric, certain guitars have the uncanny ability to become just as famous as their owners.
From the international theft of George Harrison’s “Lucy” to the raging inferno that gave birth to B.B. King’s “Lucille,” these are the stories behind the most celebrated six-strings in the music industry.”
The Top Ten Artists and their famed guitars are:
- Erick Clapton & “Blakie”
- Jimi Hendrix & “The Woodstock Strat”
- Eddie Van Halen & “FrankenStrat”
- Billy Gibbons & “Miss Pearly Gates”
- Neil Young & “Old Black”
- Willie Nelson & “Trigger”
- Stevie Ray Vaughan & “Lenny”
- George Harrison & “Lucy”
- Keith Ricards & “Micawber”
- B.B King & ” Lucille”
