Best Sisters Guitarist Of All Time

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

Many more than Wayne! Many more. And so does Adam. And Gary, of course. Maybe even Ben Gunn.

I see Hussey on par with Sheehan and Varjak, who come slightly behind Bruhn, yet still ahead of Bricheno ...


But we know, this is three third a m*****n forum ... :wink:

Know what? QB should create a Filter to That Guitarist, to avoid new Hussey debates.
Everytime someone post one of those words "Hussey, Wayne Husse, Wayne" it will be replaced with "That guitarist". :lol: :lol:

I wanted to say the Christo/Catalyst duo for playing live, but since only one can be chosen - Christo.

In terms of songwriting the best guitarist has to be Von himself.

the audience in Groningen (or was it Utrecht?) last year did a mighty good job taking over Chris' guitar parts in Arms when the sound went :notworthy:

Fortunately so, nor will I ... :wink: ...
and honestly, I didn't think of hurting anybody's feelings or stir up emotions when I wrote the above.
It's only my opinion ... AND I'm already trying to be nice, said nothing about that Brazilian TV interview,
for example, just to let those enjoy who - enjoy ... 8) :wink: ...

We have been around more than a decade. You figured that someone would have had such a thread already. ;D Admittedly outdated without the new guns, though. I voted again.

Mike (why did he ever choose this name) Varjak - just because of Susanne.
Generally, I vote for all of them.

Wayne by the proverbial country mile. With Christo behind by simple virtue of being easily the most attractive man to ever play in the band.

After checking the web for some photos, I understand ...
I love it, when people avail of a certain degree of temperament and hystery ...
not too much, though ... ;D ... in this respect, I think Von meets my personal measure quite fine ... ;D ;D ;D ...

To be fair, Tim is probably the best guitarist, technically speaking, to have played with the Sisters... but not the best Sisters guitarist. ;-)
