"Rolling Stone" 100 Greatest Guitarists?
The latest issue of Rolling Stone has the (alleged) "100 Greatest Guitarists" as voted on by people they picked- guitarists and people in the music industry.
Jimi was #1, although he is more of a "guitar god", as in there is Jimi and then everyone else. But there are some that didn't make the list and some that shouldn't have- Bruce Springsteen doesn't belong on that list.
Steve Howe of Yes is not on that list even though he was voted as the best overall guitarist for 5 years in a row (late 70s- early 80s)- what is he too perfect, too clean to be on the list? But Bruce is? Bullshit
Stevie "Guitar" Miller is not on the list.
Joe Satriani is not on the list. The guy is so good he doesn't need lyrics.
Pat Metheny is not on the list.
Stanley Jordan, shit my bet is the voters never heard of him, not on the list.
Alex Lifeson, one of the voters, was 98th. Yet he can out-play #s 2-97.
Gary Richrath, not on the list.
Robin Trower, not on the list. Rick Nielson, not on the list.
UNCLE TED is not on the list- may all the voters who kept the Motor city madman off the list get "Cat Scratch Fever".
Peter Frampton didn't make it.
Paul Simon is on the list. Might as well put Jimmy Buffet on it too.
As I think of more I will list them. So far all I have listed could easily replace some on the list that shouldn't be there- John Lennon, no he shouldn't be on the list of 100 greatest guitarists.
