How cool is this? Warren wins Best Rock Guitarist and Derek wins Best Slide Guitarist.

Has ANY band ever had both their lead guitarists win in the same poll? Duane and Dickey should have, but I doubt they had the Reader's Poll back then....

We are truly blessed to have both these incredible players.

Oh, and BTW....Eric Clapton won Best Overall Guitarist.

like all things it is just opinion... warren i could go with as best rock but Derek nope i vote Jack P as best slide guitarist but then who knows Jack???? and there are probably guys out there that can blow them all away.. Eric as overall best guitarist sorry no way.. and of course this is all just my opinion..

Those in the know know Jack, Mike....but Derek's exposure increased tremendously when he toured with EC...plus he has a new CD out....life isn't always fair, but I'd rather see Derek win than someone, like, George Thorogood. I hope you'll at least admit Derek is better than HIM....LOL

Derek freekin rocks , george T no thanks, and i agree with you that since his EC tour he has grown in popularity by leaps and bounds but that does not change the facts whatever they may be , unless it is a poularity contest.. i love them all i just am not that fond of DT's slide playing and i am not fond of these reader polls most readers can't even play.. but i am happy for him that he is getting his due he is a great guitar player, weather i like him or not i respect his skills.

Not bad for a couple of hacks in a cover band.

Jack Pearson is a fanastic musician...Derek edges him due to The Tone.
