The Top 40 Greatest Guitarists of All Time

Tony Iommi

Fans may instantly recognize gifted guitarist Tony Iommi today as part of the famous rock band Black Sabbath, but he is also one of the most gifted artists to rock the guitar scene. Tony is also known as one of the first guitarists to popularize heavy metal around the world.  The world once nearly missed out on Tony Iommi and his gift. When he lost two fingers in a freak accident at 17, he could have turned away from the guitar because of the handicap. But he didn’t, and now he’s behind some of the most popular songs in music history.
