list your top guitarist's


Recommended Posts

I m starting to like Peter Green alot. But if i was Building the Mount Rushmore of Guitar Heroes. Page, Hendrix, B.B. King and the last spot is a toss up for me because i just don't really care about anybody else to put their faces up their. This is the rolling stone 100 greatest Guitarist. and i do disagree with most of it except that Van Halen is number 70.


Jack White should not be on that list.

I just found out who the fuck is Ry Cooder.

that rolling stone list is wacked!!
