Brian May, the best guitarist of all time according to Total Guitar readers

Brian May has been voted the best guitarist of all time by the readers of the British magazine Total Guitar.

The 72-year-old Queen guitarist is thus ahead of six-string icons such as Eric Clapton, Eddie Van Halen, Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix.

“I am absolutely speechless. I am hallucinating, it is completely unexpected. Obviously, I am deeply moved that people think of me this way,” May told Total Guitar.

And he added: “I will never say that I am a great guitarist in the sense of virtuoso. I suppose this tells me that what I have done has reached people. I think I simply try to play with my heart and that is what it is about.”

May has confessed that for him number 1 is Jimi Hendrix, a “superman who came from another planet”, while admitting that he has always had Jimmy Page as a reference for going to the same school and being “two or three years old higher”.
