This list is pure bunk, but then again so was their top 100 guitarists.


Surprised and delighted that Jeff Buckley made it though.

Lists are always crap, subjetive, and they are mixing styles of music wich is ridiculous. Would Aretha francklin be able to sing in a grunge song like Chris Cornell, and the other way around? but at least most of them are great musicians. No Chris Cornell is embarrasing though.

It always kills me when someone plays an instrument or plays in some band they think they know all about music? My 17 year old cousin plays a guitar and thinks he knows all.So funny!
