Certain guitarists have big reputations amongst general fans but are not highly regarded amongst people really deep in to a particular genre. For example, general guitar fans seem to love Manitas De Plata amd Carlos Montoya, but within the flamenco community they are not rated very highly.

Jeff Baxter of Steely Dan ought to be on the list somewhere, if the break from My Old School was the only thing he ever did.
Agree about Randy California.
John Fogerty ranked above Clarence White?
Nice to see Cipollina in the top 35.
I disagree with the disparaging Neil Young comments. He's been a hugely influential guitarist.
Freddie King nowhere to be found, nor Son House.

I agree it's kind of silly to "rank" a classical guitarist, a jazz guitarist, a folk/bluegrass picker, and a rock guitarist on the same list.   It's like comparing Nureyev with Gregory Hines with Fred Astaire.

There are very few guitarists that I've heard play in a variety of genres, so I wouldn't be so bold as to rank most of them, but I do think some of these folks probably deserve as much recognition as some on that list, if not more:

Chet Atkins, Django Rheinhardt, Andres Segovia, John Williams, Doc Watson - Duh! I can't believe they were left off the list in favor of Joni Mitchell, Eddie Cochran, and Kurt Cobain.

Others I'd nominate for inclusion:

Pat Donohue - definitely - extremely versatile too
Charo - she's excellent
Paul Simon - very versatile
Paul Stookey - one of the best folk pickers I've ever heard
Roy Clark - pretty impressive pickin' there too
Christopher Parkening - another longhair, so I guess that doesn't count

And two women I'd nominate:
Nina Berger -- I wonder if the Rolling Stone folks even have a clue about Nina
Chrissy Hynde - Isn't she at least as good as some of those rock guys on the list?   Anyway, I'd rank her at least as high as Joni M

I've also been quite impressed with:
Jason Mraz
John Mayer
Brian Setzer
Roy Clark
Dan Fogelberg

not to mention quite a few studio musicians and jam buddies I've known, whose names are unknown to most of the general public.

The "best" and the "best known" are not the same thing.

Since the list was, apparently, not "qualified" as pop-rock or any particular genre, I imagine Andres Segovia, The Romeros, Chet Atkins, Joe Maphis, Charlie Byrd, Django Reinhardt and any number of other late artists (nearly any of whom could roundly outplay most folks on the list) are rolling over in their rosewood coffins - if they are not snickering, that is...

The easiest way to assess "person x"'s stature as an idiot is simply to look at his post, his use of the English language therein, and his general attitude toward others. Self-explanatory. He's definitely, undeniably an idiot.

I love the rhetorical questions...

"Are you a complete idiot or just half a one?"

Is that a trick question? Wait. Let me get a protractor, and I'll check. Be right back.

"Do you have any idea what a guitarist is let alone the greatest of all time?"

Uhh...yeah. A guitarist is someone who plays the guitar. The greatest of all time, well..."all time" isn't over yet, is it, so I think we'll have to wait on that, won't we?

"Were you high when you made this list or are you just fucked in the head?"

LOL! I love that one. It's your best rhetorical question yet. Let me answer it with another one of my own: "Were you brought up in a cave by inbred neanderthals with 6 toes on each foot or did you learn to relate to people that way later, when you went to Yale?"

"Where is Eddie Van Halen, the boys from Iron Maiden and lynyrd Skynard, what about ted nuggent or micheal schneker?"

I think they're probably on tour, except for Lynyrd Skynard. Ted Nugent might be hunting, though. You never can tell.

"Your are a dickhead who knows nothings?"

That's not even a question. It's an assertion. Nevertheless, you ended it with a question mark. Perhaps it is just a very badly worded question. The word "nothing" does not need an "s" on the end of it, and makes no sense when you put an "s" on the end of it. I also had to add a question mark to one of your above questions, which you had ended with a period. Is something seriously wrong with you? Have you considered consulting a doctor regarding your frequent episodes of incoherence? Or are you still learning English as a second language?

"And even bigger one for not changing the list even though you know it's fucked."

You see? You did it again. You left the article "an" out of your sentence. It should have read: "And an even bigger one for not changing the list even though you know it's fucked."

Get help, man. There is still time to reach a 4rth grade level of English writing proficiency before you die.

"Thank You for wasting my time in looking at list, and also thanks for the laugh."

Likewise. Thanks a bunch to you too, Roscoe! It's been very amusing. ;-D By the way, you left the word "the" out of that last sentence. It should go right in front of the word "list".

Look, even if this is a list of the "greatest rock and roll guitarists" how in the h-e double toothpicks did Ike Turner get on it? He was okay, but top 100? In the Rock genre here should be the top 5:

Steve Howe (Yes)
Alex Lifeson (Rush) Where is he on the list?
Steve Hackett (Genesis, early days)
Jimi Hendrix ( this is what burning a guitar on stage gets you, top 5 recognition for all eternity, and usually number one although not deserving)
Eddie Van Halen (for technical innovation)

Rolling Stone's list is obviously popularity based and should be ignored. I agree with all of those who said that the list should include a larger, more diverse range of guitar players from all genres. Andre Segovia, Les Paul, Chet Atkins, Roy Clark to name a few who would make such a list.

I totally agree with the comment a few up. John Mayer should definitly be up there somewhere. He shreds it up right alongside of Hendrix, Guy, and Stevie Ray. But at the same time he can slow it down to a nice mellow acoustic jam. I mean hes all over the place. And the blues stuff on TRY! along with the colaborations with King and Guy, like damn man. Then he goes right back to his mellow stuff. I'm not saying number one or anything but he definitly needs to be up there.

Also, Kurt Cobain and Jack White need to be knocked down a few and James Taylor, and Jim Croce should at least be on there.

And Robert Johnson, i get it hes good, king of the blues, sold his soul to the devil and all, that has to get him somewhere. But randonly put on a few of his songs and try to tell them apart without the words, there might be some confusion. You have to admit a lot of his stuff sounds the same, its good, but all the sam.

And the guy that said Tommy Emmanuel, dude I agree, hes no john Mayer though.

Sadley "GUEST,ib48" your post should be in the past tense "check out isaac guillory,he was incredible" As very sadly Isaac died on the last day of 2000.
I had the great pleasure of seeing him play not to long before he passed away. I went to see John Renbourn & Isaac played solo and with John too. I had not heard of him before and I remember being absolutely amazed by his fantastic playing (he had a great voice too)
I have found this on "Wikipedia"

"Isaac Guillory passed away in 2000. His legacy is immeasurable; the music that he could cause to come forth from a guitar with such apparent grace, pleasure and ease - The man who could visualise an unlimited warmth and love for life and take us to that very special place..."

I read about Isaac's sad death in the pages of "Guitar Techniques". In an article written by Eric Roche's, when he used to write an acoustic column for the magazine.
Eric & I exchanged emails at the time writing about our sadness at such a great loss.
How ironic was it to be that Eric to is now no longer with us.

Two fantastic players who will always be at the top of my list.
