BLACK SABBATH star Tony Iommi has eclipsed JEMI HENDRIX to the title of Greatest Metal Guitarist Of All Time.
AC/DC siblings ANGUS and MALCOLM YOUNG appeared at three, RANDY RHOADS - the late sideman for OZZY OSBOURNE - at four, and EDDIE VAN HALEN landed fifth spot.
Surprisingly the late Hendrix appeared low down the list at 12, though the magazine's editor-in-chief BRAD TOLINSKI says he considers the 60s star as a "futuristic blues player".
He adds, "Iommi's essentially the guy that created most of the conventions for heavy metal."02/02/2004 17:23
