Yeah, I have to say it's turned out a bit same old, same old. But this is the first time they've actually had professionals vote for these things.

Their other lists are just plain dumb (100 greatest vocalists without RJD), but this isn't really their list, it's a guitarists' list of guitarists.

It's a shame they don't expand this into a full-blown article with little explanations behind every choice, because I'd LOVE to hear the explanations behind at least a third of these. "We obligatorily picked this person because they're in an incredibly popular band - and that's about it, despite the fact that most guitarists in legit bands are better than them"

It's always like 70% old white guys who play blues rock. And except for Jack White, you never see anyone from the last 15 years. There are so many young, innovative guitarists out there, but no, let's talk about Eric Clapton for the billionth time.

Do we really need more fucking lists?
Also, James Hetfield and Kurt Cobain? No credibility to this.
