Good quiz. For RHCP you should also accept Hillel Slovak and Dave Navarro. For The Clash you should also accept Joe Strummer.

Plus Josh Klinghoffer for RHCP (youngest ever inductee to Rock n Roll Hall of Fame). Izzy Stradlin needs adding for Guns n Roses. Important guitar player, vocalist and songwriter on their biggest and best 3 albums.

I'm very surprised that Iron Maiden is so low. Maybe non-fans would only know Steve Harris and Bruce Dickinson.

Steve Jones 15%! Good quiz. Nominated

I would beg you to add Blue Öyster Cult, but every member plays guitar so maybe that is not relevant ^^.

No problem. I love Blue Öyster Cult too!
