For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

I don't know about best but i like Lindsey Buckingham's guitar(melodic)playing. I also think Geordie Walker(Killing Joke) does some pretty interesting, bad ass things melody wise.

Rest in Peace Bettie Boo. See u soon.

The band? Or is there a person named Blondie? I know there's a Blondy in the rap group The Sequence, she doesn't play guitar though.

Yep. thumbs up! I would say that the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about King's X, is the guitar melodies. That and the harmony in the background singing.

Rest in Peace Bettie Boo. See u soon.
