    People should realize this isn't John Williams, famed conductor & composer of many motion picture scores. But rather John Williams, classical/jazz/rock guitarist.

    I've been a fan of the John Williams within you video for many years. Following both his classical releases, and his foray into jazz, jazz fusion & progressive rock.

    During the late 70's John formed the fusion/progressive rock band 'Sky' with well known session bassist Herbie Flowers, and former Curved Air keyboard/synth-man Francis Monkman.

    Their self titled 1979 debut LP was fantastic...one of my faves;

    Even though this is an apples vs oranges type question, It's a draw.

    John Williams for overall technical prowess, diversity, and virtuosity.

    Jimi for innovation, and inspiring practically every rock guitarist to come after.
