Of those, SRV.
But if I could acquire any iconic guitar, it would be the Red Special. Awesome story behind it. Maybe not as famous as other guitars, but it's obviously unique compared to any production instrument or even any guitar slapped together from production parts (VH's Frankenstein).

The older you get, the more relevant this song becomes.
It's impossible to name a single song, but I'll throw out something unusual that's one of my all-time favorites. It's a poem by Jaime Sabines turned into a song by Lila Downs. It's sort of the Mexican versi...

Great subject but casting is a bit disappointing. Not a fan of Reese but I will definitely watch the movie. I'm curious to see what great scenery they captured.
Edit: Hmm, I looked up the story, now I'm not so sure I'll like it.

Adam Lambert is a HORRIBLE choice and it's so disappointing that they would choose him to tour with the band. This is the reason why he's so bad, listen to him sing the hard rock section of Bohemian Rhapsody (go to 5:20):
