A major figure and bandleader in the “second great epoch” of the British blues movement, Green inspired B.B. King to say, “He has the sweetest tone I ever heard; he was the only one who gave me the cold sweats.” Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page have both lauded his guitar playing. Green’s playing was noted for its idiomatic string bending and vibrato and economy of style.
He was ranked 38th in Rolling Stone’s list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”. His tone on the Bluesbreakers instrumental “The Supernatural” was rated as one of the 50 greatest of all time by Guitar Player. In June 1996 Green was voted the third-best guitarist of all time in Mojo magazine.
