10. Ted Nugent
During first stage of his solo career he was mainly associated with memorable riffs (like in “Cat Scratch Fever”), but my personal favourite Ted Nugent era was the Damn Yankees period. I really enjoy all these melodic solos and harmonious tunes he performed with Tommy Shaw and Jack Blades. The only drawback is his highly irritating stage presence but it is easy to forget about it when you actually listen to the music. To sum up: guitar playing with character.
Favourite songs: “Stranglehold”, “Come Again”
