The main thing that bothers me about this list is that it wasn't made by musicians, but by some journalist. Some of those placings are just ridiculous. Sure, Kurt Cobain was very influential and important for grunge and all, but being the 12th best guitarist ever seems just a little bit far fetched, especially since the guitar was never anything he got known for.
About Chuck Berry being better than EVH is debatable, but EVH's placing is still disgustingly low. Somehow it feels like the write of that list hasn't really investigated the guitarists he put on the list (or excluded from it).
Oh, and on topic: I saw this list for the first time a few months ago, and I don't remember Rossington being on there. Could be wrong, but I don't have any definite memory of him being on the list.
