So Rolling Stone magazine covers a story of 100 greatest guitarists of all time.
(Issue 1145 12/11)
1 Jimi Hendrix
2 Jimmy Page
3 Eric Clapton
4 Keith Richards
5 Jeff Beck
11 George Harrison
22 Frank Zappa
26 Brian May
54 Curtis Mayfield
45 Link Wray
49 Muddy Waters
55 John Lennon
70 Jack White (recognize his Whammy faux-bass)
71 Robert Johnson
72 John Frusciante
Well, Nobody should disagree with #1. And a main influence to Prince.
But so many above him are simply older innovators!
(Not everybody knows Frank Zappa).
Trust me, my argument about Rolling Stones Magazine is that their staff must be retirement age, or true oldskool appreciators. Almost nobody makes the cover unless they're 50 or older!
They switched up to more political & entertainment stories (movies) and music takes a back seat.
(I've sent them my thoughts!)
Pete Townsend #10
Mark Knopfler # 44, (I'm embarrassed to say, not sure what band he's from!) Dire Straights -looked up!
Lots of blues guitarists ->Chuck Berry, B.B. King, Freddie King, Albert King, Buddy Guy, & Bo Diddley.
And one female -> Bonnie Raitt!
Hmmmm...I think they could pull out Prince and replace #33 with Eddie Van Halen at least!!
Or was he higher up on the list somewhere already anyway? That is one interesting list there!!
"pull out Prince"? bite your tongue!
Eddie Van Halen --> #8
I could post the entire list -or you could get the RS edition #1145!
Okay, I feel better now!!
I'll recant my statement about Prince...after all, Purple Rain is one of my favs!!
haha! now you feel bad knowing Eddie's there!
I think Van Halen really suffers today from David Lee Roth's tights. Ewwyuck!
I was never a VH fan. And today DLR look like a clown.
But Eddie was talented!
So I just finished watching the documentary called It might get loud......featuring the very different styles of Jack White, the Edge and Jimmy Page. Highly recommended. I love seeing artists getting together talking about their art and appreciating their differences.......and a very nice jam at the end. Very cool
Rolling Stone Magazine just posted the 500 top albums.
So the Beatles made 4 out of the top 10!
But Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" was #6. Here My Dear # 456
Nirvana Smells Like Teen Spirit # 17!
Jackson's Thriller was #20 and Off the Wall was 68.
Captain Beefheart # 60 (who? --The Black Keys' Favorite)
Queen A day at the Opera #231
RHCP Blood Sugar Sex Majik # 310
The White Stripes Elephant # 390.
And boy, it really shows they are a Rock magazine.
