Re: Top 10 metal guitarists

Adam Jones from Tool? Metal? And since when is EVH considered a metal guitarist? WTF? I'll agree that everybody on the list except for Jones are great guitarists, but why lump them in metal?

Re: Top 10 metal guitarists

someone needs to put together a top 10 list of reasons why top 10 lists suck - then maybe we will see less of them...

Re: Top 10 metal guitarists

these lists are totally bias...look at rolling stones 100 greatest for proof...many that should have been on there that were left off(many jazz and fusion greats)and many that were placed too high unfairly....that's why i don't pay attention to lists they can be totally bogus..
