The March 2012 issue of Guitar World includes the results of their 2011 Readers Poll, and Roadrunner artists were extremely well represented. Here’s the rundown:
Megadeth‘s TH1RT3EN won Best Metal Album, and Dream Theater‘s A Dramatic Turn of Events came in third;
John Petrucci also took second in the Most Valuable Player category, with Dave Mustaine right behind him;
Kenny Wayne Shepherd was voted the #3 Best Blues Guitarist;
Rush‘s Alex Lifeson was the #5 vote-getter for the Guitar World Hall of Fame;
and the magazine’s November 2011 “Big Four” issue, which featured Dave Mustaine alongside members of Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax, was voted Favorite Guitar World Cover!
Congratulations to all!
