The Top 10 “Douchiest Guitarists Of All Time”, According To O.C. Weekly

O.C. Weekly has put out a list of The Top 10 Douchiest Guitarists of All Time. Note: They’re referring to how the musicians play the guitar, not how they act when they’re not playing. See the list here:

O.C. Weekly said, quote,

There’s a fine line between sexy and, well, douchey. You know, that rocker who poses on his knees for just a little too long, gives us just a little too much ‘O’ face during every solo and is hell bent to show us all how many guitars he or she can play at once.

Top Ten:

  1. Steve Vai
  2. Eddie Van Halen
  3. Superstar shredder Michael Angelo Batio
  4. Joe Satriani
  5. C.C. DeVille from Poison
  6. Wes Borland from Limp Bizkit
  7. Rick Nielsen from Cheap Trick
  8. Esteban…the guitar overlord of QVC and HSN
  9. Yngwie Malmsteen
  10. John Mayer

I agree with most on this list, but I have a hard time putting Eddie Van Halen in the douchey guitarist category. He was just having a blast shredding it like no other. I don’t think he went over that line like some of the other great guitarists on this list. Such as Steve Vai:
