The DREAM TEAMS

It’s hard to parse out the unique chem­istry of a great gui­tarist team. Is it how they play to­gether? How great they are on their own? When they know when to shut up and when to take it up a notch? Is it whether they look cool in the band pho­tos? Ul­ti­mately, it’s pretty much all of those fac­tors, plus dozens more. And that’s what makes lists like this such a sub­jec­tive process. There are bound to be favourites missed out here – hell, here are some of mine: Black Fran­cis and Joey Santiago! Ray and Dave Davies! Noel Gallagher and Bone­head! Miki Beryni and Emma An­der­son! Marty Wilson-Piper and Peter Koppes! Jus­tine Frischmann and Donna Matthews! Joe Strum­mer and Mick Jones! Johnny Marr and... More Johnny Marr! But this list was an at­tempt to cover a bunch of dif­fer­ent eras, gen­res and styles. And in trib­ute to one of the all-time great dou­ble lead gui­tar part­ner­ships – that of Nigel Tufnel and David St Hub­bins – this list goes up to eleven.
