Being able to play really fast doesn`t automatically make you a great guitarist. Kurt Cobain was not a great guitarist but more of a great musician (as far as songwriting goes). You`ll notice the same trend of ALL the guitarists on this list. The is more of a list of the greatest SONGWRINTING guitarists of all time, not necessarily the ones who had the best techniques. Granted, Joe Satriani and Co. are absolutely mind-blowing guitarists, but they aren`t the most popular, which is why Vai and Petrucci aren`t on this list. Jimmy Page had skills, but when he played he just played from another dimension. That`s what makes a great guitarist: not just being able to play the notes, but to put your entire soul and emotion behind them. Personally, I think Stevie Ray Vaughn should be #1 because he was so good at letting his emotion pour through his playing.
Yet, Jack White is #17.
No Nuno Bettencourt? No Steve Vai?
They should have called it, 100 Most Influential Guitarists maybe... instead of "Greatest"
Skill wise, though, you`re right. I didn`t like that list either.
This list was horrible. They put great guitarist lower then they should be(Jimmy Page-9,Eddie Van Halen-70,Angus Young-96)...and guitarist who aren`t really *that* great, really high!(Kurt Cobain-12,Johnny Ramone-16,Jack White-17). And correct me if I`m wrong, but I didn`t even see Slash on the list!
