The music created is the paramount criteria to by which to judge any guitar player but the delivery of the music is also vital. The live performance is a crucial means of connecting with established and potential fans. And what’s one of the most important aspects of the live performance for any guitar player: their guitar face! All guitarists want to look cool when they’re tearing it up. Here are ten instances when quite the opposite occurred.

Joe Satriani is a guitar hero to so many players out there but here he just looks confused.
Stevie Ray Vaughn wants to know - Peeew! What smells?
BB King stop clowning around and play the blues.
Brian May looks like he can’t quite make up his mind.
Yngwie! One of my heroes but not for his modesty or his physique.
Pat Methany Don’t cry Pat, it’ll be OK.

Ummm… I think we can all guess what Ritchie Sambora looks like he’s doing here – sitting on his throne squeezing one out
