Top 10 Guitar Faces in Rock
Don't Stop Believing

You might be able to tap a few colored buttons on a plastic guitar, but that doesn't mean you can hang with the legends of rock. Looking at the faces of all those "Guitar Heroes" out there reveals only empty stares and the occasional drool.

If you want to be a real guitar hero, you gotta make the face. It's the only way to show that every note is ripped from your soul.

After the jump, the Top 10 Guitar Faces in Rock.

Showboat 10. Between the "tapping" solos and the guitar face theatrics, Eddie Van Halen was the ultimate show boat.

Trying to keep the turtle in his shell

9. Without the dangling cigarette, Slash can't control his guitar face.

Yawn.

8. Kirk Hammett pioneered the "catching flies" look.

I will eat your children

7. Holy crap, what Journey song could Neal Schon possibly be playing?

Runaway

6. Joan Jett will fuck you up.

Supernatural Pain

5. Is Carlos Santana's guitar biting his fingers?

Hell's Botox

4. With that upper lip, Angus Young could have worked in the freakshow.

Still Living

3. What the hell is Keith Richards doing to that guitar?

Fire Fire Fire

2. Jimi Hendrix is probably the only one who can get away with this guitar face.

Double Ego

1. When you're sportin' a double-necked guitar like Jimmy Page, you better bring your A-face.

David Gilmour tops them all.

Martin Barre of Jethro Tull should have been considered. He has a face that only a mother can love and she might be jiving too. He makes some weird faces in concert.

Buddy Guy. I swear, everytime he goes past the 9th fret on any string, he creams his pants.

said Orgasmatron on February 23, 2009 3:23 AM.

I don't see David Gilmour, Tony Iommi, or Eric Clapton.
