I can't think of a top 5 but I if had to pick one I think Jimmy Page is the most influential guitar player that has ever lived.
His legacy, innovation, creativity and impact on the next generations is unmatched.
Although the development and popularization of the 'riff' in rock music can be attributed to the contributions of numerous guitarists, songwriters and its impossible to pin down to an individual, his intricate guitar work helped to push the boundaries of what was possible with the guitar and his influence remains to this day

I tried not to offer a completely Deep Purple centric list and considered riff writing, rhythm and lead playing, electric and acoustic versatility, and of course soloist skills. Despite this, my one and two were both Purple alumni of quite distinct styles who have undeniably stacked bodies of recorded material and demonstrations of live prowess. Mark Reale stands out slightly, but there are more excellent Riot riffs than I've had hot dinners!

1: Ritchie Blackmore
2: Tommy Bolin
3: Uli Jon Roth
4: Bernie Marsden
5: Mark Reale

Very tough to leave out Steve Morse, Tony Iommi, Alan Jones, Rossi & Parfitt, Steve Ramsey, Michael Schenker, Glen & KK, Murray and H, Jack Starr, Randy Davis, Rich Walker, Andy Powell, Ted Turner, Laurie Wisefield, Van Halen etc.
