Playing guitar can be ecstasy for some people. Just check the expressions on Prince, Slash, John Mayer, Jimmy Page and other rockers as they get down with their axes! If that's not the face of pure joy, we don't know what is.

There's something about shredding that makes you squint, try to eat your own lips, or just generally make one hell of an o-face. We here at VH1 have our top scientists working around the clock to figure out exactly why this is so. But for now, check out some of the most intense guitar-playing faces in rock. Feel the joy, man!
