Another day, another list.

Lee and Thurston coming in at a joint number 12 behind some pretty decent guitarists Ash Bowie, King Buzzo, etc.

it's actually no surprise, just because he plays so fucked and sloppy

Something she said to me last night
Something she said to me
I saw the sun rise and come over my daddy's grave
And I ate some cheese and rice today
She's been talkin' behind my back again
This time she is gonna bleed
When I kick her in the teeth she goes out the door
I just know she'll be back for more

Judah Bauer was a great call. You gotta see the Blues Explosion live to appreciate him.

Doug Martsch, Nels Cline and Sleater-Kinney seem like poor omissions. With SK, I love the way they put together dual guitar parts.

Bob Mould looks a lot like Sigmund Freud these days. But Mould is a better guitarist.

i loved seeing POLVO on the list
i still rank that show in chicago from the 1st reunion tour in my top 5 ever
but i am glad to see other bands finally get some recognition
i usually hate seeing list like that because they are generally aweful and suck
this one, uh-uh!

Numerous indie guitarists are conspicuous by their absense. Julian Swales, Bernard Butler, John Squire, Nick McCabe and Ray Hanson to name but a few.

good list but seems to define indie as '99% likely to be derived from if not an active participant in american hardcore punk'. Nothing wrong with that, just gets my jingoistic hackles up a bit to see british players (other than the guy out of stereolab) not get a look in. S-K was a bad miss - supreme together but carrie brownstein is thee shit, one of the best riff writers this side of keith richards.
