See, every one has been agreeing with me about this list. Personally i dont think Kurt Cobain should even be on the list. And where the hell on that list is Jeff Heally. How can they not include Jeff Heally. And David Gilmour should be a lot higher on that list then he is. AND WHY IN THE HELL IS PAGE ONLY # 9!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is my biggest compaint. And also, Kirk hammet should be high on the list to, thanks for the comment Christian,

What you gotta understand is it's all industry ratings and stuff. How skilled you are isn't as important as how many records you push over the counter. And from my experience, awesome guitar players, for the most part only interest other guitar players. They don't have the same general appeal that a simple jingle has that will move retail units (records). Keep in mind Rolling Stone exists to serve the industry. Look at the Grammys, how relevant are they to what your opinion is? Same sort of mentality. Les Paul himself is only good enough to make the middle of the list despite havign contributed greatly to the invention of the modern electric guitar and having invented multitrack recording and having a regular tv spot in the 1950's (there was only 3 channels) among other things. So truly, when they say "of all time" they're taking into account what they want and it seems to me they're judging the classics by todays standards instead of measuring them against the standard of the day.
