Seen the list before. Seriously, how is Thayil only #171? The dude's amazing; he can write rythmic stuff that doesn't all sound the same and can still play some ridiculous solos. I think Satch is fine where he is, considering so many of the most renowned guitarists of our day would never have learned to be as good as they are without him. I commend DDD for neglecting Cobain before the "Honorable Mentions", but I think Tommy Shaw is a better guitarist then him.
