Will Rock 'n' Roll ever die?

Probably not, but some respondents to the Appeal's "Guitar Virtuosos" survey lamented its present condition. Others focused on the good vibrations only.

The survey offered several lists of famous rock and blues guitarists and asked participants to pick their favorite in each. We're now inviting readers to rank the 11 finalists. Included in the finalists list: Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana, Jerry Garcia, BB King, Prince, Pete Townshend, David Gilmour, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Eddie Van Halen, Stevie Ray Vaughan.

We're doing the survey in recognition of the impending opening of the new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sacramento at Fire Mountain near Wheatland. Hard Rock venues are liberally decorated with rock memorabilia and ephemera ... let's see if any of our favorite guitarists are represented at the new casino.
