Who is your favorite guitarist?

Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits. The guy rocks. Technically, he’s brilliant.

I’m really a drummer, but if I had to pick someone it’d be Jerry Garcia. The guy had his own style. You can’t beat Jerry.

Stevie Ray Vaughan because I like blues and he’s one of the best blues guitarists of all time.

Jimi Hendrix. Creatively, he kind of branched out before everyone else.

Trey Anastasio. He used to be in the house band at this bar I owned in Burlington, Vt., called the Front. I love his music.

My favorite guitar song of all time is “Rocky Mountain Way” by Joe Walsh, so I’d have to say he’s my favorite guitarist.
