Tony Iommi Is The Best Metal Guitarist Of All Time

Gibson name the Black Sabbath guitarist as number one   24-Sep-12

2: Kirk Hammett and James Hetfield

Gibson included Kirk Hammett and James Hetfield as a single entry on their list of the top ten metal guitarists, and placed them at number two, writing:

"Metallica is the definitive metal band, and Flying V man Kirk Hammett certainly helped secure that tag, shaping the band’s sound on 1984's wildly popular Ride the Lightning and 1986's groundbreaking Master of Puppets. As the years went on, Hammett’s playing evolved and shifted from primarily metal to a soul-filled, near-blues style, locked in with James Hetfield’s metal riffs and shout-y vocals."
