    Here's a list of some of the GREATEST guitarists that ever lived. What do they have in common?
    George Harrison
    Les Paul
    Mark Knopfler
    Vernon Reid
    Eddie "Purple" Hazell
    Buddy Guy
    Ritchie Blackmore
    Pete Townshend
    Bo Diddley
    Mike Bloomfield
    Tom Morello
    John Fahey
    Dick Dale
    Brian May
    Joe Perry
    Eddie Van Halen
    Ike Turner
    Robert Fripp
    John Fogerty
    Tom Verlane
    Angus Young
    Derek Trucks

    Answer: They all finished BELOW Jack White (White Stripes) in Rolling Stone's list of the Topp 100 Guitarists of All Time. :rolleyes:

    On an even sadder note: Chet Atkins didn't even make the list! :mad:

    Rolling Stone is officially dead to me!

    That's it........RS is officially retarded.
    Most of the people who write for that mag don't know **** about music. They just know what they think their friends want to hear.

    I also did not see:

    Wes Montgomery

    Lenny Breau

    Jimmy Page(who Mr. Stripes seems to borrow quite freely from!)

  4. What he said, definitly.
  5. I'm not looking forward to seeing their best drummers list.....
    ah no- Meg White! *has seizure*

    and I suppose there won't be a best bassist list at all.
  6. Yaw...

  13. no comment:eek:
  14. Ok. For one, I like the white stripes. I think most of the time people don't like them is because they don't have a bass player. But I'll agree, Jack White should NOT BE ON THAT LIST.
  15. Let alone number 1 of all of them!
  16. i'm still getting over him stating in Guitar World (i think) that he is better than SRV was.
    this is just too much.
