Re: Rolling Stone's Top 100 Guitarists of All Time
Jimi Hendrix #1 - What a chiché. Okay, he probably is one of the best, but i'd probably rate Vai higher because he's done more for guitar (Which is great considering he's no-where to be seen on the list).
Vai being off the list is a joke. Kurt Cobain being 100 places higher then him... Sure!!! That make's a whole lot of bloody sense.
I'd never say Kurt Cobain was a great guitarist. He was a songwritter if that.
Eddie Van Halen being lower then many people on the list is bollocks aswell.
Some other people missing of the list - Satiani (oh come on!), Petrucci, Malmsteen, many more. How can RS possibly justify not including Vai, Satriani etc. Afterall, nearly EVERY guitarist in the world has heard of them and lots aspire to play like them. They are idols for guitarists. Not having them in the list is the biggest pile of horse dung i've seen in a while.
