Rolling Stone is quite fond of blues guitarists I guess. Check out the top 10, all are great but some/most should not be that high.

Where is Dave Mustaine? Perhaps these folks have never tried to play Holy Wars...Punishment Due. There is something wrong here.

Yea, eddie van halen at #70, Pete Townshend at #50, Angus Young at #96? That list is complete and utter bull shit. Eddie and Pete should be in the top 10.

Yea, but he stole the guitar burning from Pete Townshend. You see, Townshend's signature show closer was that he'd smash his guitar on stage. Hendrix wanted to top that, so he decided to burn his guitars. Either way Jimi Hendrix is the king
