It's pretty annoying, but then again, how could make a Top 100 list that makes everyone happy?

if you base on technique, steve vai etc should be up there.

phrasing, maybe john frusicante or something.

popularity, and being iconic, jimmy hendrix etc.

having an odd knack of making good songs out of few notes, kurt cobain, johnny ramone (sp)?

older guitarists Vs new guitarists?

it goes on and on.

i don't like the list very much myself. but, it's impossible to make a good list that will satisfy EVERYONE. so i cut them some slack.

also, i think it's worth noting that people that read rolling stones are primarily music fans, not actual guitarists. so if you asked someone who didn't play guitar (but loved rock etc) to make a list, it wouldn't suprise me to see it like look like that (or something like it).

Tom Morello is on there for being innovative.

70 Eddie Van Halen


clearly dont know what they are talkin bout, jurt can even play a note on the fretboard without investigating whether its emo enuf to play. and when he does play it, the audience dies coz the tone is so bad, and he plain is crap at guitar.

Morello is good for what he does. You cant compare him to shredders like Vai or Satch, its just wrong. His song writings are also good.

Rolling stone magazine is a shitty mag, they have no taste in music!
We must do a GMC magazine!:D whith a big list too^^
1: Kristofer dahl
2: Pavel
3: Sean conklin
4:Gabriel ...
and stuff like that:D THAT would be very cool! Everyone s know who are the real best guitarists in world, its not important to do a list, they re all gods and they have all different techniques! (Don t waste time with rolling stone mag^^)

"Fact is, nothing in the world bores me more than gear...If I played thru your rig, I would still sound like me. Van Halen would sound like Van Halen. Brian May...etc. Very early in my career I decided to focus on creating music and not being a guitar tech. Being a good guitar tech is a very different and extremely difficult job, so why not leave it to a pro?"

lol, perhaps to make thier list more actuarate they could specify what they are looking at to make the list, 100 best guitarists is a little vague especially saying that there are thousands of guitarists in the world who could all be on that list, given and they got the opportunity to become a big name, some of the stuff written by these artists on this list *cough* KURT *cough* isn't difficult enough stuff or even good sounding enough to make him deserving of this. Kris i think you shud go throw sum simple power chords together and sing sum sad music and get 12th spot tongue.gif i don't believe burying peoples genitals will cut it as sad lyrics tho hahah biggrin.gif

what irritates the @%&$^ out of me is how people go around worshipping kurt cobain when he had no skill. the only reason he is on that list is because he died. i don't mean to dis a dead man but it pisses me off

Being that we all are guitarists I of course agree to how poeple complain about kurts musical talent.

This list clearly does not relate to the musical prowess of these guitar players. Nor does it review them a guitarists but mainly as popular musicians which had a bigger impact.

I mean if you look at it from such a perspective such as Kurt Kobain is in the list since he inspired and quase created the whole grunge generation. This already before he died. Actually when Kurt died the whole grunge movement in a way died with him.

This is a typical pop magazine list not targeted at anybody who knows anything about music. Its only a list concerning the popularity of a musician who happens to have played guitar.
