    Randall William Rhoads, RIP, (12/6/56 - 3/19/82). He was one of the most innovative guitarists who ever lived. His classically influenced solos and chord changes revolutionized heavy metal and changed the genre forever.

    He first learned guitar studying with his mom, Delores Rhodes - a music teacher who ran her own music school in California.

    His first band was Quiet Riot. He was then recruited by Ozzy Osbourne completing only 2 albums.

    Tragically, we lost Randy on March 19th, 1982. For me THAT was "the day the music died".

    Source(s): I have a B.A. in Musicology and was a huge fan of his.

    Gotta go old school, Eddie Van Halen. Influenced more guitarists than any three others put together.

    the oldest school. i would have to say chuck berry. the reason being that every guitar player that has come after him has had to pass through the chuck berry door, you name them, hendrix, clapton, van halen, santana, and so on, they all did. although he may not have been the most technically proficient or the flashiest, there is no denying that anyone that picked up a guitar after him has had to learn his songs, as well as his licks. in my estimation, that would make him one of the greatest, if not the greatest.
