Mine is Jimmy Page. I was watching the "Led Zeppelin" DVD a few nights ago, the incredible 1970 Royal Albert Hall show. Jimmy gets this little tippie-toe dancing thing going while he plays..........and he wears his guitar so low slung on his body. The fact that his hair was so extremely long then doesn't hurt. And I remember seeing Zep (one of three times in the early 70's) in L.A. in 1973..........when they walked out, before they even started playing, he was doing his little tippie-toe dance and flailing his right arm around in circles. The body language just shouted out: "ARE YOU READY FOR US???? WE'RE GONNA ROCK YOU F*CKERS". Jimmy Page is my COOLEST guitar player of all-time.

"What's that man movin' 'cross the stage? Looks a lot like the one used by Jimmy Page."
-Paul McCartney, "Rock Show"

Jim "Reverend Horton" Heath.

Not to mention the cool outfits he wears, but playing that big ol' signature Gretsch, just always thought he was pretty cool. Nice guy to meet, too.

Coolest?

IMHO, it's gotta' be folks that just abound in joy while they're playing. Never saw a cooler bunch than those playing at the Beacon jams this year. Brent, Lefty, JP, Barry, Lamdog, etc. Donna Hopkins comes to mind. These guys make me smile the most, because of the joy.

Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page

Both always dressed for the occasion and had the stage moves to go with the music and outfits.

Both photograph very well also. There are so many great shots of them with facial expressions and arm movements.

Very cool.
