Prince 'should be seen as a guitar hero'
Prince has been named as the greatest unsung guitar hero by a Canadian newspaper.
Writing for the Metro News, DJ Mike Benhaim said that for every fully-fledged Fender Stratocaster-toting guitar superstar such as Pete Townshend and The Edge, there are scores of musicians who have under-rated skills.
He named multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Prince as the performer who most deserves more appreciation from electric guitar aficionados.
"[Prince] rocks a guitar like few others. Just listen to the last 60 seconds of Let's Go Crazy from the Purple Rain soundtrack to give you an idea," Benhaim said.
There were also mentions for Bonnie Raitt, Joe Satriani and Red Hot Chili Peppers star John Frusciante.
The most surprising name on the list was Ray Parker Jr, although Benhaim made it clear he merited inclusion for his work with Barry White, rather than for the Ghostbusters theme tune.
