NEWS: Spin Magazine’s 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time…

…released on 3rd May, this has to go down as one of the most bizarre lists of all time. We’re not fans of lists that go more than say 10 or 12, like a decent album track listing. Short and sweet is the way to go. Keep it light, keep it interesting and keep our attention. But Spin Magazine went the whole hog. Not content with some choice cuts of bacon, they went the whole hog roast. “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”. Which is a fantastic title. Except that there are some… Strange choices. Pantera legend Dimebag Darrell of course takes pride of place. But how does Run DMC DJ Jam Master Jay make it to #10? He doesn’t play guitar! He samples Joe Perry from Aerosmith on “Walk This Way”! How Sonic Youth get top spot escapes us. But… Either way, prepare to laugh at the full list here.
