          All depends on who votes on it. Its like a survey. Where did Van Halen and Ritchie Blackmore place on the list?

          They were both part of the panel that chose the list, maybe that prevented them from being on it?

            Debated forever .. IMHO #1 Jimi .. okay he sort of created a new way of playing the guitar..#2 Clapton the best fundamentally, and the best (in my book) #3 Page/#5 Beck, who could argue with them. #4 eh..surprised Richards ?.. #6 BB King, king of the blues, Yep (but #6 guitarist ? ) .....#9 Duane Allman was great also.. all subjective but interesting to see the reasoning. Also depends on the music you like and grew up with. I'm told #8 Van Halen is a very good guitarist, but I have no idea.

              didn't read it but most lists leave off

              Chris Oliva (Savatage)
              Dimebag Darryl (Pantera)
              and some times one or both of KK Downing and Glenn Tipton (Judas Priest)

              Totally bogus.
              1.Can't rank this to begin with.
              What criteria? Like how many notes can the person get into 5 seconds?
              2. Didn't see Robin Trower on the list.
              (Or Glen Campbell)
              61-6qJVbknL._SL1050_.jpg

              3. Hendricks ranked better than Winter.
              4 Hendricks was number 1.
              Let me show you my surprised face.

                Never cared for his music, but, Prince could play a frickin guitar. I don't remember who it was interviewing Clapton once, they asked what it felt like to be the greatest player on Earth. Eric said ask Prince. He was serious. Like I said, would not be even close to my first pick in music. But you can't deny talent.

                  Prince could play like 23 instruments. Did Jon Sykes make the list? I must look.
                  All I know is I didn't make the 100 greatest drummers list.

                  Brian Jones played 26 instruments at least. Gotta love his sitar on Paint it Black.

                    There’s some people on there I never ever heard of. As I scrolled, I was starting to wonder where I’d find Jeff Beck. Now there’s a guy that has mastered the strings but never admits to even being close to it. An amazing sound from him and his records.

                                  Rolling Stone would never acknowledge Ted Nugent today.

                                    Yea, it’s something about being an American flag waver and defender of the rights that were fought for and earned through years of blood shed to fight off tierney to earn the freedom we live with today.

                                    Some people are afraid of the people that want to turn this country inside out and transform it to a shit hole Communist socialist regime that stops and grounds the people into dust to continually feed the rich. A few of which own media outlets.

                                      All of that is false! Look up and read what Nugent did to avoid the draft. Your flag waver.
