Well, it's obvious that lists will never please everybody. What I am wondering
is what the criteria was to make it onto this list.

Is it the most popular guitarists of all time?
Most influential? etc.
Who's got the most bruised knees???

I don't know but as soon as you see names like "Kurt" Cabana and
Lick my "White" Cornuto, on the list then you know it holds no significance.

Shame on Rolling Stone for promoting mainstream radio music once again!!!

Hm, interesting, but bullshit.

I mean, hell we all know hendrix, SRV, clapton and other rock.

but van halen is on 70, and the rhcp guy is on 18 (now THAT's bullshit)

same goes for Tom Morello, he's inventive with fx and all but he's nowhere as good as van halen... and Morello is on 24.

hm, I don't fully agree on their choices, plus its also a bit of a personal preference thing, they'll never make a good list that'll satisfy folks, so they just made up a shitty one. theres a lot of underrated guitarist on that list too, thats cool but they forgot a couple too, plus I don't agree with the rating. (wheres vai and satriani anyway?)

if this list wasn't to satisfy people, who was it meant to satisfy? and who would buy the magazine to see who Rolling Stone thinks is the best guitarist?

its just about selling the magazine. the guy who made this probably had his hand up his rear end and had to think out something quick, plus he had to write it down with his left hand.

however, its bullshit. this list doesn't make sense to me. malmsteen isnt even on it.

What surprised me is that Angus Young (AC/DC guitarist (if you didn't know)) is on the list, but at 97th (or whatever it was) place. If he's included, then for gods sake, he should be above Cobain. Yes, Cobain could write some reasonable songs (except they got a bit boring after 2 minutes (total, not per song), 'cause they're all pretty much the same), but Angus writes hellishly nice songs, *and* plays guitar like a man. Unlike Cobain.
