http://www.rollingstone.com/news/story/593...sts_of_all_time

Hi there GMC,
maybe some of you know that the famous rollingstone magazine likes to create a ranking list of the best guitarist of all time. Well, It really drives me mad because alone the idea of ranking guitarist is just absolutely senseless. So let alone that some guitarist are rated top (where you think What is Kurt doing up here) and some low (What is Eddie doing down there?) some great guitarists are not even listed! So what is the criterion for that list ??Do you also think that it is just absolute nonsense to create such a list ?
Like to read your comments...

You're right. That looks more like a "100 most influencible(?) guitarists" ... Not even that! Jack White is up on #17, while Mark Knopller is all the way down on #27? Since when is Jack White a better guitarist then him?
Slash and Eric Johnson isn't even on the list...

It's ok. You may also see imho which means In My Honest Opinion.

I think some cool names appear on that list that don't get so much credit like Kim Thayll but on the whole the list is silly. Kurt Cobain would have been laughing as even he admitted he was far from the best guitarist biggrin.gif He was an amazing songwriter I think though.

It's impossible to have a "correct" list like that. There are 6 billion people on the planet, and with that comes 6 billion diffrent tastes of music. So one persons image of a "perfect list" is not anothers wink.gif

Indeed, and that's the reason why you shouldn't create such a list in the first place..

No disrespect to Hendrix, But im so sick and tired and him just being put up in those lists at number #1, It comes out of habit it seems, like the only way to have a list if is Hendrix is number 1.

Then again this list is rather pathetic,

Iommi #86....... Thats just sad.

Having Iommi in a top 100 guitarist list is laughable.

Another influential great riff writer but anybody can play the stuff.
