best guitarist of all time?

Who do you think is the best guitarist of all time?
I am interested to see who people think is the best guitarist...yes I am. It can be from any genre of music...rock, blues, metal etc. Here are some names to get you thinking:
~ Eric Clapton
~ Jimi Hendrix
~ Carlos Santana
~ Mark Knopfler
Enlighten me with your opinions.

I always hate this topic, and it beat to death, so I will rather name my favorite. They could all be argued as some of the greatest, but whatever...

Eric Clapton (Layla)
Jimi Hendrix (Machine Gun)
Brian May (Bohemian Rhapsody)
Dave Navarro (Three Days)
Jimmy Page (Since I've Been Loving You)

to be honest, i bets the best guitarist is proberly living somewhere in spain, picking olives for a living, i doubt hes in any way famous - or she (no)

but, of people i know, my favorite lead guitarist is proberly

jimmy page
the guy from system of a down does some shit hot guitar solos, like on soil.

jimi hendrix - he does some cool solos, but i dont like many of his songs, only a few, and that kinda detracts from the music.

also, i dont really listen to much guitar solo music, which is why this response is so pants.
