George Benson? Benson did have a collaborator on most of his stuff, can't remember his name.
Santana, BB King, good stuff. Clapton was good, he rode on JJ Cale's coattails on a few of his hits, but that doesn't take away from his guitar work.
Keith Richards I think was a fine guitarist.
EDIT: Whoops, make that Keith Richards instead of Keith Woods.
