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.
