Josh Homme, Queens Of The Stone Age. “At once a true, old-fashioned macho guitar hero and a genuine subverter of all the clichés, Josh Homme is both showman and piss-taker. His playing veers unpredictably from technical brilliance to bone-headed stoopidity.” (Martin Robinson).

Graham Coxon. “I don’t do solos,” Damon Albarn explained last month. “Graham is the closest I allow, and his are more like anti-solos.” Therein lies the mantra that’s tailed Coxon’s ascent into the highest echelons of axe-wielder; he’s a virtuoso, but not as we know it.” (Jaimie Hodgson).
