Sadly, John Mayer is still better than that Mars Volta idiot. I looked at this list, and it's not even the list itself which is bad (which, it is, but...)... the hilarious thing is the reasons behind the songs being included. "Say It Ain't So", for example, got chosen because it has that little feedback part in between the spaces in the 2nd and 3rd chorus.


No Polvo, John Fahey, THinking Fellers Union, Captain Beefheart, hell even Erase Errata? Also, pretty much no REAL metal whatsoever? What the fuck were they thinking?!

I would've thought Teen Age Riot would be more appropriate for this list.

No Peter Green era Fleetwood Mac. That list officially counts for absolutely nothing.

Once again Johnny B. Goode is praised for "that" intro.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwabxJdUkn4

This is the opening riff to Johnny B. Goode played by an orchestra, but it was originally played on guitar, but I can't find a version to demonstrate!

FWIW, Zoot Horn Rollo is on their top 100 guitarists list. I found that pretty surprising.

But yeah, it's fucking Rolling Stone. Do you expect any better?

10. "Smells Like Teen Spirit" Nirvana (1991)
Well, They had to put a Nirvana song, they put the best-known...

50. "Debaser" Pixies (1989)
75. "Willie the Pimp" Frank Zappa (1969)
93. "Only Shallow" My Bloody Valentine (1991)
?????????????????????????????????????????
Why did they choose these songs ?
I'm not sure they've listened to these bands already, they might have picked some songs randomly.

I didn't realize Zoot Horn Rollo was ever listed in a Rolling Stone poll -- I do know that Jimi Hendrix or somebody like that said Zoot was his favorite guitar player at some point, which blows my mind. Also, at one Captain Beefheart gig, all 4 Beatles watched them. "Safe as Milk" was John Lennon's favorite album of all time. Crazy.

Anyway...

Silver Rocket isn't SY's best guitar song, but it has possibly the best guitar TONE..

I'd definitely go with 'Willie The Pimp', or just about anything else off Zappa's Hot Rats album (1969). Great vocals from Beefheart and violin from Jean Luc Ponty on that number, too.

"the mars volta" idiot, despite being in the mars volta, omar is a good fuckin guitar player. his stuff with at the drive in was awesome, tremulant was way cool, and some of his solo stuff is really neat and trippy and very hard to play. he definitley had more fucking business being on there than john mayer.

Yeah, Omar did play some stuff in ATDI that was alright but I thought Jim's guitar lines were just as good. The Mars Travolta.. I think he's written maybe one good riff. I've never bothered with his solo stuff. All in all, I think he's a decent player -- definitely worshiped by the wrong people.

omar is an ok guitar player.

most everything he does in the mars travolta is done on one string and with millions of effects going on.

---

"seven nation army" i can imagine the explanation "jack white used some kind of witchcraft to make his guitar sound like a BASS guitar; how the fuck did he do that? AMAZING SCIENCE!!! jack white is a genius!!!"

---

and while, thankfully, they did not include "smoke on the water", no deep purple is unexcusable. discarded for this.
