George Harrison, #57??? I thought being influential was part of it? How many kids became guitarists because of him? I agree that technically, he aint no top 10, but he and The Beatles introduced a lot of stuff to mainstream listeners and brought a new generation of wannabes that otherwise wouldnt have.

I'm surprised it took what, 10 posts? To get to this.

Yup, George Harrison was WAY influencial. Just playing the sitar was crazy innovation.

That's a legitimate gripe. I'd have him in the top 20.

Yup. Rockabilly, feedback on "I Feel Fine" in 1965,Sitar, he didnt always play it perfectly, but he introduced stuff to the masses. For that matter, Brian Jones added a dimension to the Stones that they NEVER replaced. Really now, after the late what great new sound did the Stones ever come up with?

Geeze, whenever we're talking about travesties of this list, how about the complete ignorance of the virtuoso known as BUCKETHEAD!

Seriously, dude can play.

But anyways, I'm glad Gilmour is up at the top. He's really always taken a backseat to Waters in his own band, and I'm glad to see him in the top 10. Kinda like John Frusciante, in the sense that he didn't need to play extremely fast to make great guitar solos.

My 15 year old son who's been learning to play the guitar for the last two years has been listening to Yngwie Malmsteen on his Limewire quite a bit as of late.

I've never heard of the guy until my son told me about him but I see he's #15 on the list.

Gee!!..........I feel old.

Totally agree. Harrison should be moved up about 40 spots.

Here's another name that deserves some recognition....Carl Perkins.
It's true he played country later in his career, but no one can deny his influence on rock, especially rockabilly. Paul McCartney said "If there were no Carl Perkins, there would be no Beatles."

Also....where's John Fogerty? Talk about a guitar sound that's instantly recognizable.

And Billy Gibbons is way too high on the list, (yes I know he's at 77....still too high).
Influential? Um...I guess so. Versatile? Hardly. ZZ Top has been remaking the same album over and over for years. Although I guess he does score big in the lasting popularity category.


I'm also surprised nobody's questioning Dave Mustaine's absence on the list. I can't say for sure that he should be on there, but I would have thought someone else would.

Screw him, he does'nt deserve to be on the list! When ever you get kicked out of maybe the best metal band of alltime it should tell you something about the guy.

His freaking music is nothing more then a rip off of his former band!


Boy did he blow it. Megadeath had like two hits.

Anyone see "Some Kind of Monster", the Metallica documentray? Mustaine was all weepy and crying and being pissy wth Lars because he had to sit back and watch a band that he was kicked out of (supposedly, he was impossible to get along with) become the biggest band in the World.
