    Frankly -- looking back at my own 60s teenhood, there was simply so much great music around, and so many great players, that it's incredibly difficult to say that any one of them tipped the balance. From Hank Marvin with The Shadows (who was my first guitar hero before the arrival of The Beatles) through my discovery of the Stones (and, through them, Chuck'n Bo and the blues greats like Muddy, John Lee'n all), The Yardbirds, The Kinks, The Who ... all the great Stax/Atlantic, Motown and James Brown stuff ... Dylan, The Byrds and all the folkies ... what I couldn't understand was how anybody growing up at that time could NOT want to play guitar.

          I guess it depends on the generation that was inspired by the player...

          If I was going for an all time inspiration I guess I'd go for the beatles

                    I keep rolling it over in my head and I keep coming up with Page. Maybe Van Halen.

                    Cobain...maybe, but grunge was kinda the death of the guitar solo. It became less of a flash instrument and more of a band instrument. But yes, a lot of folks started wanting to say what they had to say and cobain had a sort of everyman appeal that said "If this guy can do it, anybody can." So, I'd have to say Richie Sambora cause it got him into Heather Locklear's pants.

                      Your in good company.

                      The Beatles were a inspiration for Jimi too.

                          Maybe, now that Frets has said it, we can agree that this is the correct answer.

                            Nope, if Beatles were da answer we'd all be playing sitars, although some of us who don't cut our nuts properly are

                                I was thinking in terms that the music was
                                a) guitar based rock
                                b)multi generational
                                c)Popular

                                So if a given group had a song in the charts say the top ten for ages then re emerged say 10 or 15 years later and a new generation got into them, then they would have reached a wider audience.
