Jimi Hendrix at #1...

I can't fault their list, really.

Of course, Hendrix is the greatest guitarist ever.

No surprise there!

James Burton at #19.

Scotty Moore at #29.

That pleases me since Elvis played with them both.

Rolling Stone did an excellent job.

"The 100 Best Guitarists Of All Time"

Chuck Berry made the top 10.

That alone is impressive.

George Harrison never liked playing live.

So, he really wasn't known as a guitarist.

He was a Beatle which is good enough, doncha think?

George Harrison didn't exactly jam on guitar...

He played with Eric Clapton though.

His solo career was mellow pop rock.

Jimmy Page scored high. I expected him to.

John Lennon is at number 55.

George Harrison is at number 11.

When I first read the article...

I thought George didn't make the list at all.

What can Beatle fans possibly complain about?

George at number 11 sounds about right He and Clapton are both in the top 15 with Jimi and Santana.Stevie Ray Vaughn and Joe Walsh also belong in the top 15.

Speaking of Joe Walsh, he's back with The Eagles...

There's going to be some rock tours coming up in 2012, Bubba.

Here's the list:

1. Rolling Stones
2. Bruce Springsteen
3. Van Halen
4. The Beach Boys
5. The Who
6. Neil Diamond
7. Fleetwood Mac
8. Black Sabbath
9. The Eagles

The Stones could gross up to $500 million this time around.

David Lee Roth is back in Van Halen and Ozzy is back with Sabbath.

I'm surprised to see what's left of the Beach Boys still touring.

The Stones are still the biggest rock band in the world...

But I already saw them in the last decade.

Out of all the classic artists listed, I wouldn't mind Sabbath.

Black Sabbath are actually great musicians even without Ozzy.

Ozzy is simply not as good as he used to be because of the drugs.

Aging has taken its toll on him, really.

I wouldn't bother with The Beach Boys. They're way too old.

Van Halen signed a new recording deal for one more album.

Roth is back on vocals, but I don't believe it's going to work.

I saw Neil Diamond back in 2005 and he put on a decent concert.

The Beach boys only have Mike Love and Bruce Johnston in the band Al Jardene and Brian Wilson don't tour with them so it's a beach boy tribute band pretty much.

I like The Beach Boys "Smile" or "Pet Sounds" period. The real talent was Brian Wilson. Mike Love is cheesy. It's unforturnate that the band went that way instead of creating masterpieces like what Brian was doing in 1965. The Beach Boys became an oldies band that toured under Mike Love. I was surprised by the studio work that was "Smile" and "Pet Sounds" Very creative and it was done before The Beatles "Sargent Pepper"
