The Rolling Stones are notorious for making god awful lists, so this doesn't surprise me at all.
I was actually happy to see Robert Fripp and Steve Howe on the list.

I def like the other list posted on here better.

Kurt Cobain, Johnny Ramone, and Jack White all made the top 20? Are you kidding me? Just because they can play a bunch of power chords? Might as well put Billy Joe Armstrong from Green Day in the top 20.

They don't even mention alot of the solo acts of the 80's, who IMO are the best guitar players-Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Joe Satriani, Vinnie Moore

What a travesty of a list.

Cobain at 12? Some people in music just love him too much. It is really pathetic.
David Gilmour at 82? Get off the grass.
Angus Young at 96?

It just looks like after number 1 they pulled names out of a hat.

At least Frank Zappa made the list ;-D

Honestly, look on youtube. There are thousands of guys who play unbelievably fast and are insanely technical. Give me someone with some soul.

Robbie Robertson at 78 is a tragedy beyond words.

Both lists don't place SRV in the top 5, thus both lists are a farce.
