WORST LIST EVER!!!! This list was horrible. They put great guitarist lower then they should be(Jimmy Page-9,Eddie Van Halen-70,Angus Young-96)...and guitarist who aren't really *that* great, really high!(Kurt Cobain-12,Johnny Ramone-16,Jack White-17). And correct me if I'm wrong, but I didn't even see Slash on the list!

^Although Johnny Ramone and Kurt Cobain weren't as skilled as some (like Eddie Van Halen,) you'd have to agree that they were important. Maybe not because of their skill, but because of what their playing did to music.

Skill wise, though, you're right. I didn't like that list either.

i agree with the top 4, but that's about it.
you're right, since when were any of the ramones good musicians?
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 8/18/04 - 11:03:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
I really agree this list is just terrible, granted Kurt Cobain had a big influence on music we hear today but, eddie van halen is definately a better guitarist hands down, now if this was the 100 most influential guitarist lists it would make a tiny bit more sense, except that it would still just be WRONG. That's why rolling stone is no longer worth reading they've done sold out to pop.

Horrible list... Joni Mitchell above Angus? Stephen Stills above Frank Zappa and Les Paul? Lou Reed above Ritchie Blackmore?

No Nuno Bettencourt? No Steve Vai?


They should have called it, 100 Most Influential Guitarists maybe... instead of "Greatest"

17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 8/18/04 - 12:11:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
WHERE IS STEVE VAI????? VAI IS GOD I NEED MORE VAI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Holy crap! Angus Young is so far down...he's a great guitarist, one of my favs...some of those shouldn't be so high, then again I hate Rolling Stone
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 8/18/04 - 12:23:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
*sigh* at least George Harrison was on there. But sheesh what a horrible list. It's expected from something like Rolling Stone magazine...

what about Dave Navarro? Im not like a huge fan of jane's addiction, but he is one of hard rock's greatest guitarists ever...and certainly better than jack white...plus, alan collins from lynrd skynrd should be on the list for his incredible solos

My god, how dare they have an oppinion that differs from that of the people on this site! It's an outrage that these people, who have studied music for years, not see that people who post here know 1,000,000,000,000 times as much about music as they do. It is obvious that people at this new, untrustworthy rag "Rolling Stones" are completely moronic. I am mad enough to type in all caps and use multiple punctuation! Argh, it is obvious to anyone that people who consider the question for ten seconds would be much more reliable then experts in the field who spent a month or more debating with eachother about it.

so some ppl disagree. what's wrong with that? it's not like we're writing rollingstone hate mail or anything.

Well there's always more to it that people think, you popular they were, it's not always pure talent, but how public that telent was, and how it was reacted to by the public.

Along with the out place and missing lets talk about Joe Satriani a outstanding guitarist in his own right who both Kirk Hammet and Steve Vai owe a bit too as well
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 8/18/04 - 8:06:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
the list sucks.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 8/18/04 - 8:33:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
John Petrucci should have been on top. Noone has heard of him, but go listen to Dream Theater and you will agree with me!
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 8/18/04 - 8:45:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
Steve Vai and John Petrucci are nowhere to be found.

Yet, Jack White is #17.


17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 8/19/04 - 3:16:46 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, that list was a little out of whack, I shoulda been #1...
j/k

Being able to play really fast doesn't automatically make you a great guitarist. Kurt Cobain was not a great guitarist but more of a great musician (as far as songwriting goes). You'll notice the same trend of ALL the guitarists on this list. The is more of a list of the greatest SONGWRINTING guitarists of all time, not necessarily the ones who had the best techniques. Granted, Joe Satriani and Co. are absolutely mind-blowing guitarists, but they aren't the most popular, which is why Vai and Petrucci aren't on this list. Jimmy Page had skills, but when he played he just played from another dimension. That's what makes a great guitarist: not just being able to play the notes, but to put your entire soul and emotion behind them. Personally, I think Stevie Ray Vaughn should be #1 because he was so good at letting his emotion pour through his playing.

The guys on this list know how bring you into their music and make you listen to it over and over, which is what makes it classic as well. I can only handle so much Vai or Satch or Petrucci but I could listen to Vaughn, Page, Hendrix, and Clapton forever without ever getting sick of it.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 8/19/04 - 3:25:32 AM EST (GMT-5)
So before you go knocking the list, think about who plays to impress (more or less), and who plays for the sake of playing. The latter are the ones at the top of the list.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 8/19/04 - 3:37:55 AM EST (GMT-5)
I didn't see John Mayer on the list, so if he's not on there, he should be because he can play Vaughn's music to the letter (i.e.: he played at Austin City Limits with Double Trouble, and the band, if blindfolded, would've sworn that Stevie was back up on stage again) and turn around and write great music like his stuff you hear on the radio.

In closing, if you don't play, you don't know, and if you don't know, shut up.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 8/19/04 - 6:27:57 AM EST (GMT-5)
those werent the best guitarists. those were the most famous. it had nothing to do with talent. but thats how the rolling stone works.
they didnt even have mick thomson....
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 8/19/04 - 6:35:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
Billy Corgan was a brilliant guitarist. Just listen to their earliest stuff, he should be on there somewhere. Not high but somewhere.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 8/19/04 - 6:49:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
no mick thomson kicks way more ass.
