its a pretty bad list. Many of the guitarist on there are crap, dimebag, wylde, and so many others should be on there. Hendrix deffinetly shouldn't be top.
#6
Well, I'm not bothered by the list at all, I don't really pay attention to them. Satch and Vai would be somewhere in my top 100 list, don't know about Eric Johnson though. He's a great player, great tone, but I don't like him.

I've come to the conclusion that the only reason these are made are to make idiots on internet forums argue, bitch, whine, and moan. If I had a magazine, I'd do the same thing, just for shock value. It's someone's opinion, get the **** over yourselves.

Randy Rhodes is #85 and Jack White is #17 that just shows how much the prick that wrote that artical knows about guitar

#12

Go get your shovel.
#13

I agree with some of it, even though not having Satch or Vai is crap. The reporter that wrote the article obviously was more into the Blues/ Classic Rock guitarists than the shredders, which is why you have Jimi Hendrix, BB King, Eric Clapton and SRV taking up alot of the top 10 guitarists.
WHY IS EVERYONE IN THE PIT A FUCKING METALCORE KID
#16
That's stupid. Kirk Hammett is good, but not #11 good. Randy Rhoads 85? Idiot.
#17
Since when was Joan Jett considered one of the top 100 guitarists of all time.

Just proves Rolling Stone, a magazine dedicated to music, knows absolutely nothing about music..
#19
I don't think anybody knew who Vai or Eric Johnson were when this came out 100000000000000 years ago.

i think jack white deserves his place. eww.

hes completely original and, although he maybe doesnt shred, can play like a demon.

clapton probably does deserve a place, but not that high. hes horribly overrated in my opinion.

I often think that knowing less about an instrument makes it easier to appreciate good music, however. For example, I hate Greenday, but only because thir music is too "Simple." If I did not play guitar, I would simply see their music as catchy, infectious punk and like it.

Knowing little about guitar, this person has identified the truly best to them, the ones who create the best music, not just the ones who can tremolo pick at 400bpm, or shred like a god. And IMO, that is what makes a talented guitarist; the ability to create good music.

It isn't all about technical skill.
#29
no slash!?!?!? i only just noticed.

and he isnt about technical skill, which is what i love about him. he does have the 'ability to create good music'

If writing an article about the top 100 guitarists of all time, you had better know a good deal about guitars and guitarists before publishing such a list in a widely read magazine. Second, Randy Rhoads was not all about technical skill, though it is abundant in his playing. He could still had the ability to make good music without compromising his technical ability, or selling himself short as a musician. Thus, I'd think he's better than White as most in this forum would agree.
#31
where is zakk wylde? where is yngwie? anyways this list is about good guitarists not catchy guitarist. they need lists like these for every genre of music. cuz you cant compare the style of some of these players. cuz ppl like randy rhoads and eric clapton play different kinds of music.
#33
Cobain is on that list...

Nice work Fender, seriously.
#34
I tihnk it's more based on sound and/or innovation than technical aspects.

EDIT: I read through the list, it's true, that list sucks. You can't possibly say those guys from Radiohead are better than Iommi.

I'm not disputing that that list is quite bad, (Angus is in friggin' 96...), but I've seen even more pathetic ones. To say that the list comes from Rolling Stone, the most well known music magazine around, I'd expect a far more enlightened view.

I'm just sick of seeing people going like "WTF THEY leK Put Steve Vai LOW!!! HEis teh S3XXOR AT shrEd!!!" It annoys me that poeople can't just respect someone's tastes. Yes, Vai is obviously miles better that Kurt Cobain, but the person writing the list clearly doesn't like him as much. Get over it. That's all I'm trying to say.
#37
my theory is that the list was made around innovation and how much of an influence a person is, otherwise randy rhoads would not be 85

yeah the magazine isnt that good but ive been getting them for free for a long time... so whatever...
