Bands with 3 guitar players?

There are some popular bands who have/had 3 guitar players,so what do you think

is the third guitar player too much for a band?

Lynard Skynard had 3 guitar players.

Bruce's Springsteen's E-Street Band have 3 or even more guitar players .In the early days it was Bruce only.

I think it ruins the sound mix a bit,it becomes over produced

i think it depends on what that 3rd guitarist is doing. the stones had 3 players at points and it didn't really affect much.

If you have 3 that know how to play and more importantly know how to play together, I don't see any problem at all.
