Rothery, even when I prefer (early) IQ to (early) Marillion.

Sorry, haven't heard Steve G's stuff.  No vote from me.

i have no idea who Steve G is, but i absolutely adore the other two.

Picking between them would be like choosing between my legs.

Why is it when someone creates a poll, it's always 'gold against gold'...??
This is so IMPOSSIBLE to pick.......
Rothery is more Gilmour influenced.....
Holmes is more Hackett influenced.....
Given an iota of thought, Holmes is more 'flashy'
Rothery more 'emotional'.......
Probably go for Steve.   
Both are very inspired players.......

fair comment in some respects

Holmes was certainly showing his flashy side on Through The Corridors although his guitar solo on The Magic Roundabout does owe more than a little to Gilmour. There is also the very emotional solo on The Last Human Gateway (middle section)  but then the Hackett influence comes across a lot especially on the album Seven Stories Into Ninety Eight when its pure Hackett at times. Talk about wearing your influence on your sleeve!

Rothery is a very clean guitarist and probably less inclined to show off. I find it really hard to find anything by him that sticks in my mind. He was interviewed by Darren Reddick on planet rock radio and Reddick suggested that Marillion had become too ambient sounding and the guitar had been lost somewhat. Rothery countered that by saying that Marillion's sound was an evolution and that you couldn't just stand still. However I suspect that Rothery has had to do the recent side project to get his playing more at the front of the music understandably.

Went with Holmes because his leads are more upfront.....never thought Rothery did enough leads out front that were that inspiring. There's a lead part toward the end of The Province of the King from Frequency where Holmes turns in a stellar guitar part that is simply superb.

I like both, but I'll vote for Steve Rothery.
When he rides, my fears subside.
For darkness turns once more to light.
Through the skies, his white horse flies.
To find a land beyond the night.
