* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

I avoid "best ever" questions like the plague, so we'll just say these are 10 favorites.

In no particular order (except the first three):
  • Stevie Ray Vaughan
  • Jimmy Page
  • Carlos Santana
  • Jimi Hendrix
  • Frank Zappa
  • Steve Vai
  • Jeff Beck
  • Rory Gallagher
  • Dave Gilmour
  • Eric Clapton


Honorable mention to Dweezil Zappa - who is his father's son, George Harrison - who is, well, George Harrison, and The Edge - who, with Johnny Marr, pretty much rescued the guitar from the garbage heap of synth pop for my generation.

Lars is good.  Christian Eigner as well.  And who's the one-armed drummer from Def Leppard... that's a whole lotta skill.

Indeed!

I need to give mention to Dave Grohl. Although there are more technically gifted drummers, I love his passion

Agreed, although bass player Rick Savage deserves a bit of credit, here, as well

If we are on drummers, you CANNOT leave out Roger Taylor. Makes it looks so simple....until you actually try it!

That's when you know you are looking at the very best of whatever it is they do.

Another one nobody has mentioned is the master of the fuzz guitar: Peter Frampton

Not the selection I'd have gone for, but I guess it's purely a matter of taste and opinion


For those not old enough to remember Yngwie Malmsteen. here a cover of an old Areosmith tune with Ronnie James Dio, one of the great baritones of the 80's

Now I'm tempted to go start a top 10 drummers thread so I can give Lars some love!

 
The holy trinity of rock drummers:  Keith Moon, John Bonham, Ginger Baker.

Amen.

Zakk Wylde
Alexi Laiho
Tony Iommi
Really?  So, hey, want to go fishing?  I\'ve got a telescope, and it\'s going to be a dark night, so we should see the fish really well.
...what, I\'m not talking about fishing?  That\'s stargazing?  It\'s all doing-stuff, so it\'s the same thing, right?
