I would say they were definitely better in the 80s. In the 80s, you had players like EVH, Randy Rhoads, Jake E. Lee, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai, Vito Bratta etc. that all had a very unique sound and approach to the guitar.

I'm sorry, but in the 70s, a lot of lead guitar sounded very pedestrian and similar to one another. It wasn't until EVH and then Randy Rhoads busted on the scene that guitar players got a boot up the ass that they needed.

HAHAHA!

MYLES RULES!

FRAROC YOU!

I like your threads.  Don't understand "I Can't See For Myles and all of his hate.

Great question!!

Surprised this isn't a poll.

Glad it isn't.

I can't vote on this one.

80's for me but man the 70's were great too.

Why would Eddie and Randy get put in the 80's because of more fame?

Those cats started out and kicked ass in the 70's.

Hello????

Randy kicked ass on the first two Quiet Riot albums.

Priest, Maiden, RUSH all 70s.

Sorry PAT!

I'm changing my mind.

The best solos are from the FUCKKING SEVENTIES!

The greatest decade of MUSIC ON PLANET EARTH!


FUKK MODERN MUSIC!

FUCKK THE GRAMMYS!


This thread proves to me that ROCK IS DEAD.


Name the best guitar players and their solos in 2017-2018??????


ZERO!
