    But I must confess, I really wish the April fools list was in actuality the real one. Not because any of my favorites were on the fake one (I think favorites are rather personal and it isn't important who inspires you, but rather that someone inspires you) but rather because I like to see people get unraveled when silly norms are upset.
    Like when guitar players read that Rolling Stone top 100?

    I do agree with you that ours is a guitarist's list, while the RS list is a listener's list. The RS list also includes some historic icons that ours omits, since ours is about personal favorites rather than historic importance.

    True. There's a lot of 'historically important' players in the RS list.

    Hahaha. Yup. I don't see why people make such a stink about such topics. Its a list. It doesn't invalidate you as a person/musician if your top rankings aren't mimicked, just like it doesn't invalidate others that don't have the same tastes as you (not you Nitty Gritty, but figuratively speaking - which I'm sure you could figure out, I just wanted to call you Nitty Gritty). Some people just take themselves too seriously I guess.

    Totally. I think we can put reactions to polls like these down to 'serious music lover' weirdness. Players or non-players.

    Sometimes it's fun just to debate, even if for debate's sake alone.

    You are. Still, when I think of rhythm guitarists, he's probably the first one who comes to mind. He's so solid and the perfect complement to his little brother.

    It just so happens that I rank Rolling Stone rather low in my list of the 100 Greatest Periodicals of All Time.

    No disrespect to some other players on there but come on, what exactly did Marty Friedman contribute to the world ? lol
    I love Joe Strummer, but his guitar playing was definitely not what he was known for. If anything we should be talking about Mick Jones for his musical genius of adding melody to music that moved so fast!!

    He had a set of Duncan singles...

    Nobody else voted for Mike Bloomfield?

    Heathens!

    That aside, great list - good work Keith.
    In the immoral words of the great warrior Poet Ice Cube, if the day does not require an AK, it is good.
