Thread Name: Top 100 Guitarists of All Time
Subject: RE: Top 100 Guitarists of All Time
No mention of Joao Gilberto?? What kind of stupid list is that? Kurt Cobain? Come on, the guy was a non-guitarist if anything. Jimi Hendrix the greatest of all time? Well, I love Jimi and there's no doubt he was extremely influential but he was doing what Buddy Guy was doing a decade before and Jimi even admitted it and played onstage with Buddy because he wanted people to know how important Buddy is.

And you can't excuse the omission of Django for any reason whatsoever and certainly not so you can include guys from Moby Grape, Soundgarden and Radiohead who are not exactly setting the guitar world on fire. Joan Jett?? Come off it. I mean, where's Johnny Guitar Watson? Where's Jimmy Reed or, for that matter, Jerry Reed? Both were certainly better guitarists than Lou Reed.
