The Axemen Cometh!

In 2003, Rolling Stone Magazine put out a list of the Top 100 guitarists of all time. That list was controversial. There were phenomenal guitarists left off of that list. Not all music genres were fairly represented. Some who made the list should not have made the list.

Other mags, through the years, have also put out their lists of the top ranked guitarists, and the same types of criticisms ensued. Guitar World had no people of the feminine persuasion on their list.

I think we should take a look at those lists. Compare them. Discuss them. Time has gone by since those lists were compiled. We need to add to them. Reconfigure the rankings. Explore the music and the musicians!

Here's the link to RollingStone's 2003 Top 100 Guitarists List:

Next Blog Post: The Axemen Cometh! Each day we'll highlight a specific guitarist. We'll talk about his music, his style, his history, his instrument! Stay tuned. (haha)
