    I love Blackmore. As good as Hendrix in my book. But picking a favorite (in anything) is hard for me, because I like so many.

    Here's a short list (in no particular order):

    Hendrix
    Blackmore
    Gilmour
    Clapton
    SRV
    EVH (I know, not a "Strat" but still)
    Buddy Guy
    Beck

    Can't pick one, too many influences with too many reasons.
    Hendrix, Clapton and SRV are there, but so is Eric Johnson, Buddy Holly and Hank. All have left their mark on me.

    Must give a shout to Laurie Wisefield of Wishbone Ash, a very distinctive player and in my opinion quite unique.

    ^^^ Nope, they also listen to Vikingarna a lot:D.

    But, back to the topic - Ritchie Blackmore is on "top" of my list.

    Among the others:
    Gilmour, Knopfler, Raitt

    not the best technically or anything. But his tone and unique style and sheer record sales… he’s a cool cat
