    In my day Ace Frehley was the man. Page and Hendrix had already made their mark (which I wouldn't realize until later in life). My 13 year old was awed by Kurt Cobain. It's kind of weird that Kurt Cobain would be looked at as any kind of guitar hero because he really wasn't. Great songwriter though...

      The existence of the vagina.

      I think you're probably right and Cobain is high up there. I remember reading somewhere that guitar sales went through the roof during the whole "grunge" explosion, so that would make sense.

      Now it might actually be John Mayer.

                  Unfortunately you nailed it there. Although it's hilarious when they find out they still need actual social skills.

                      For me and a lot of my friends it was actually David Gilmour of Pink Floyd. Yea I grew up listening to the Beatles, Clapton, Hendrix, but once I heard "Echoes" I wanted to learn guitar. I had been playing piano and bassoon for a while, so I loved the way he created melody within his guitar lines, it wasn't just some guy shredding, like Malmsteen or something.

                                Where I grew up at it was AC/DC & Kiss & Ted Nugent. Nugent hunts up where I grew up & a lot of people love him in Michigan and he use to do a Christmas concert every year & 1/2 the time Kiss would to.
