Its Rolling Stone. Who fits the criteria better?

- from the 60's
- plays classic rock/blues
- is either British or Southern
- is still played on CR radio
- band still tours

Johnny Ramone's guitar work is so painfully repetitive, he should not be on this list. John Frusciante should be around the 50's. I would put Robert Johnson and Jimmy Page ahead of Duane Allman. Eric Clapton did some amazing guitar work in Cream. He deserves top 10 status just for that, even if his solo stuff did get boring.
Shouldn't be 11? Why not?

Haha every time one of these lists is published we get a thread.

I am happy to see Kevin Shields is on there, though.

Even then, it's a really bizarre choice.

Indeed. And it seems like it's never positive.

Brian May and Tom Verlaine are waaaaaaaaay too low. And unless I missed him, I didn't see Andy Gill.

RS = FAIL.

As for people not on the list, I think Graham Coxon is a criminally underrated guitarist.

Brian May is way too low, but my mother and I did get a good laugh at his being #39...as '39 is a Queen song actually written by Brian May.

I was kind of hurt that Trey Anastasio was below Joni Mitchell, and that Kurt Cobain was so high on the list.

I was, however, thrilled that Richard Thompson and John Fahey were both in the top 35...although I'd argue that Fahey should have been higher.

I've seen 3 of them live, technically kind of four of them.

I've seen Brian May, Warren Haynes, and Trey Anastasio, within 25 feet of each of these men playing. Mind = blown.

I was also taking a tour of Radio City Music Hall in New York in 2006, and David Gilmour came out to do a sound check while we were in the building. I kept getting escorted out of that part of the building, because I kept sneaking off to watch him. The tour guide definitely hated my guts. I don't see how she could blame me, though.

The top 6 are solid, then I would put in Roy Buchanan, Rory Gallagher, Mike Bloomfield & Richard Thompson to round out the top ten.
