Default Top 3 guitar players

So post your top 3 (or just your #1, or top 5 or what ever you like) favourite guitar players. Also the band(s) they play in or have played in if possible.

These are not in any order:
Jason Becker (cacophony + solo career)
Joe Satriani (solo career, and I think this dude doesn't need introducing)
Michael Schenker (ufo, also scorpions I think)

All 3 are very different types of guitar players, but I just love every one of them.

Joe Satriani
Steve Vai

then either santana, or clapton, or jeff beck or some other not fantastically fast shred player, but a really tallented blues type player.

In no particular order, just guitarests that have really impressed me.

Eric Peterson - Dragonlord/Testament
James Murphy - Testament
Alex Skolnick - Testament
Timo Tolkki - Stratovarius
Glenn Tipton - Judas Priest
Dimebag - if you don't know, I should hurt you.
David Mustaine - MegaDeth
Kirk Hemmet - Metallica

If I HAD to pick.. i'd have to say the three testament guys.. godly guitar work.
