    Re: Rolling Stone names Top 10 Guitarists Ever

    Wow. I disagree with almost that whole list.

    My top 5 would be:

    1. Eric Clapton
    2. Jimi Hendrix
    3. Eddie Van Halen
    4. Stevie Ray Vaughn
    5. Jimmy Page

    Re: Rolling Stone names Top 10 Guitarists Ever

    Based on their list, I'd say it's the most influential guitarists, not necessarily the best. I worship Jimi, but there are better guitarists on that lists.
    But he took the guitar places it had never been (including into a Marshall amp, in flames. But I digress..)

    Re: Rolling Stone names Top 10 Guitarists Ever

    D J Ashbie looked pretty good the other night for GNR. Then there was Slash before him.

    I guess everyone on this list is fairly old or dead. Are there not good young guitarists any more?

    Re: Rolling Stone names Top 10 Guitarists Ever

    The best ever in my opinion are not the most influential. I would rank the best ever as.

    1. Tom Morillo
    2. Ingve Malmstein
    3. Eddie Van Halen
    4. Angus Young
    5. Mick Mars

    O.K. so maybe they are not the best ever. They are my favorites though.

    Re: Rolling Stone names Top 10 Guitarists Ever

    Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page all made the list? Bogus. 3 of the best guitarists ever all were in the same band? Me not think so.

    5. Jimmy Page

    Clapton was in London catching shows. He went to see Hendrix perform. After the show an intoxicated Clapton sat in the back of a cab and wept. His friends tried to console him. He said his career was over and that he would never be able to master a guitar the way that Hendrix had.
    That said Rolling Stone ios a bunch of blowhards. They change opinion with the frequency of the wind changing direction. I remember them posting Kurt Cobain ahead of Trey Anastasio. Many absurdities (and few gems) have come from that publication in the past 20 years.
    The only thing they nailed was Kid A being the best album of the past 25 years.

    Yeah, Santana is also on my list.

    I would also add Richard Thompson to the list along with Buddy Guy. Have seen both on multiple occasions (as well as Page, Richards).

    Actually saw Buddy Guy in Peoples in Ames.

    Re: Rolling Stone names Top 10 Guitarists Ever

    This may be an unpopular choice, but Prince is quite possibly one of THE BEST guitarists.

    Prince refused to allow Guitar Hero to use his music because he said, ""I just think it's more important that kids learn how to actually play the guitar. It's a tough instrument - it's not easy. It took me a long time, and it was frustrating at first. And you just have to stick with it, and it's cool for people who don't have time to learn the chords or ain't interested in it. But to play music is one of the greatest things.

    Good list, but the bias is definitely towards the 60's, 70's. I don't disagree with it. Glad to see Duane Allman made it.

    I am not a Prince fan by any stretch of the imagination, but he is a fantastic guitarist.
    I also have to throw in the obligatory mention of Sioux City's Tommy Bolin


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.
