Eric Clapton Voted Best Guitarist By Motor Racing Fans

Eric Clapton has been voted best guitar player by British motor racing fans.

Individuals were asked to vote in a poll at the annual Silverstone Classic festival in England. The Organizers of the poll asked fans to choose from five Gibson artists. Jimmy Page, Angus Young, Pete Townshend and Keith Richards were the other four guitarists on the list.

"Nearly 2000 votes were cast, and it's clear from the results that Silverstone Classic fans are just as knowledgeable about classic rock guitarists as they are about classic racing cars," said event Director Nick Wigley.

The Hollies, and tribute acts to Pink Floyd, The Eagles and Guns N'Roses all performed at the festival.
