I remember seeing this article when it came out originally and laughing out loud. As many of you mentioned, there are way too many wtf's to mention. A few that are WAY TOO HIGH:
Cobain - 12?
Ramone - 16?
Jack White - 17?
Notables that are WAY TOO LOW:
Van Halen - 70???!!!?? (should be top 5)
Derek Trucks - 81 (best slide guitar player alive)
David Gilmour - 82 (seriously? Who cares that he has about 3-4 of the greatest solos of all time!)
Randy Rhoads - 85?? (top 20 easy)
Angus Young - 96??
Notables that are missing as many have you already pointed out:
Slash (Jack White makes it and Slash doesn't?)
Andres Segovia (greatest classical player of all time)
Eric Johnson (greatest tone I've ever heard)
Rolling Stone sucks my a**.
The mag gets it's name from a Muddy Waters song.. you'd think it would give props to the blues masters that gave it rock n' roll.
However, I looked at that Digital Door whatever website and I found this.
Now since when did Aretha Franklin, Madonna, Run-DMC and NWA become rock artists?
I find it strange Joe Satriani is not even on the Rolling Stone list.

What do you think about Tim Reynolds and Keller Williams? I dont know where I would put these guys but in my opinion they belong on these lists a lot more than some of these other guys that just made it because they were in popular bands.
And if you dont know these guys check them out...
Let me know what you think?
