OUR NEXT BIG LIST: WHO ARE THE 100 GREATEST GUITARISTS OF ALL TIME???
Psych! We already did something kinda like that, and we derived endless amusement from watching you all duke it out in the comments over other peoples’ opinions. No need to do it again.
But Spin Magazine thinks they’ve got a handle on ranking the 100 Greatest Guitarist of All Time in a new list they just published yesterday, and I’m gonna wager that you think differently. I’m not gonna spoil it for you, but the presence of Prince and PJ Harvey in the list’s header image (above) and non-guitar* player Skrillex at #100 should inspire severe nerdrage amongst MetalSucks readers. A quick glance at this list reveals that Bill Steer, Trey Azagthoth, Tony Iommi, Kerry King, Jeff Hanneman and plenty of other metal luminaries made the list, so it’s not entirely devoid of metal. But the list seems to be dominated by olds and a bunch of (presumably) indie rockers I’ve never heard of. Fun!
Go check out the list, then come back here and direct your frail ego-fueled anger at one another in the comments.
