My favorite rock and blues guitarists are Clapton, Alvin Lee, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jonny Lang but since you said virtuoso, I thought I'd mention 3 true greats that would have to be included in any conversation about "best ever." Leo Kottke, Stanley Jordan and John McLaughlin.
Here's just a few quick samples grabbed on youtube and barely scratching the surface of their brilliance!

Both these guys are hard to beat far as lead performers. Eddie may have a little bit more talent far as playing, but Angus makes up for it in overall performance and although his being simple scale play with a complex vibrato signature that is hard to copy. His stage performance is unmatchable if you ever been to a concert of theirs you know what i'm talking about.
I've seen them a couple of times in Bonn Scott era and then I saw them in Nashville a few years ago. Angus went into his famous spin breakdance while he was playing and hit some angle iron on the sky jenny lift and had a nasty slice on his side bleeding like mad. Never missed a lick on the guitar as a roadie ran down on stage and patched him up with big butterfly bandaids as he played. The guy is over 50 years old and running all over that stage and playing like a mad man.
I've seen Van Halen a few times as well, Eddie is one one of the best no doubt.
Ive seen 100s of bands perform in my life time and played in about 3 myself. There's a lot of good lead players out there, but these have been my two fav players far as overall performers of lead guitar.

I have been in a Lindsey Buckingham mood a lot lately, the Grammy Awards may have only made me hunger more as well.

I was watching Eric Clapton from something on youtube a while back with BB King and Clapton took me to this point where my brain almost forgot how damn good BB King is. Almost. Then I put on a video of BB King and well I think I've caused a dimple now lol. It's almost like over years there comes a little give and take with "Lucille" but ya know somewhere long ago he grabbed that guitar and said " I'm gonna sweet love to you all the damn time." He just moves so intentionally smooth and gets such amazing sound out of 'er .

My guitar "idols" are Keith Urban & Brad Paisley. When I think of great guitarslingers, these are the 2 names that immediately come to mind.
Ya can lookup any of their individual vids but here's an example of the 2 together. They really start showin' off in the last part of the video, around the 3:45 mark on.
