So, are you saying these artists have songs that rate well, or are you saying they have tone that rates well?

I must be missing something

Angus Young is just Angus Young.

This is the poster's first comment.
"Johnny Thunders (especially So Alone)

Slash on Appetite (hasn't come close since & probably never will)
John Perry"



This is what the poster said as a second comment.
"The tone is all well & good, but you gotta have songs. Real songs with HEART, BALLS & FEELING. Many of my favourite artists are people whose tone I wouldn't especially rate, but the songs do it for me."

This implies that he reveres the song over the tone, which is not what he implied in his original post so, that is confusing & misleading, IMO.

If he likes the artist's songs but, "wouldn't especially rate" their tone, then I suppose his first statement is moot, since the original question concerns tone.

So many of my favs have been listed (Warren Haynes ) but I'll add Greg Martin to the tone list.

Both.

Actually, let me amend that: I forgot I included Billy Duffy. I'd rate his tone on that album over the songs or the playing. The others got it going in both ways.

My fav tonedaddies are:

Kenny Burrell
Wes Montgomery
Phil Keaggy
Gatemouth Brown
Magic Sam
JJ Cale
Mark Knopfler

Most of them play clean or just on the edge of breakup

and then there's:

Hendrix!
Hendrix!
Hendrix!

the eternal godlike grandmaster of tone (imho)

Johnny Marr rules. I wouldn't especially rate his "tone" per se, but his playing is stellar. He drives the songs, not his ego and that's what it should be about.
