What guitarist has the craziest rig?

I just watched a YouTube video about Alex Lifeson's rig and he has four amp heads and a ton of other stuff. Seems a bit crazy.

But I was just curious who y'all think has the craziest rig?

The Edge from U2 has a crazy amount of pedals...

Petrucci's rig is pretty huge, but I agree with Boom, Edge's rig is on the ridiculous side.

Tim Mahoney from 311 comes to mind.

No current diagrams (you can find '81/'82 on guitargeek.com) exist that I have found for Edge, but there is a list here:

And if you watch "it might get loud" you get a brief overview of his 4 refridgerator rack setup. I can't fathom how many linear miles of signal path he must run his signal through to acquire his sounds.

BTW, current guitarist, Josh Klinghoffer for RHCP is a pretty good contender:

Re: What guitarist has the craziest rig?

Joe Bonamassa has a ton of amps and effects, both on floor and in racks. He has a redundant set in Europe so he does not have to carry all that gear over the ocean. The picture below, and link, is not even close to what he has, either in amps or guitars.

Eric Clapton, in his effects happy days of 1980s and 1990s, had one of the most massive setups I have ever seen and literally thousands of pounds of effects in racks and then in flight cases.

I like he's got the ferrari symbol on one of his pedal boards.

The edge has one of the more complicated rigs that I've seen.
