It's funny that they have Kim Thayil at 100 who's childhood hero was Ace Frehley. Yet Ace is nowhere to be found because RS are such snobs. Alive 1 and 2 inspired more guitar players than most people on that list.

I think the list is most based on lead guitarists...

i've heard BB kings playing, it's not flashy, it's not even that technically good as far as my hearing of his playing can tell. nothing that made my ears prick-up and go wow.

and jimi hendrix is just a dick-head. just because clapton can't do what jimmie does, is no reason for clapton to go on record as saying he's the best or best than him? i'm sure hendrix couldn't of played like clapton either...

hendrix's guitar-style was just about making noise it seems.
Hopefully in future he'll be remembered in his true-light, and not as the god-of-guitarists he's widely known as today.

Every time I see this Top 100 list in music forums, EVERYONE bashes Hendrix, it's like he's some helpless leper in the street, kicking him while he's down. If you don't "get" Hendrix then fine. But there's a lot of beauty in that so-called 'noise' he made.

Stunning beauty, in fact. I agree. If you don't get him --- don't listen.

There's nothing to "get" i mean nobody walks into a teachers' classroom, scrapes a fork roughly across the blackboard and says 'The sound it makes is Musak to my ears'... but, perhaps if the teacher did it instead of you, or hendrix even, you'd call it brilliant? :lol:

8) Yes, i'm cool. Too-cool for school.(i can't believe i typed that or even thought it)(the "too-cool for school" but)

I think the list is based on the most Legendary guitarists of all time. Which guitarist who is greatest is your own choise I think. I believe if there are many great studio-guitarists who is the same standard as Rusty. Paul was lucky to find one of them.

Well I'm not sure what any of that meant, but I do feel he was a great blues player. Machine Gun for example, or Red House. Or Little Wing. Not only that, I like the phaser effects he used and the panning techniques from left-to-right - I liked his vision. Not afraid to experiment and take chances.

I suppose there was originality in what he did... but, that isn't always great. I like Stevie Ray Vaughan's version of little wing better... and OMG(have you ever seen "austin city limits" with SRV?) there's a track called, um... i forget, but he goes crazy on that guitar, the control is amazing. This guy had electricity running through him 24/7.
