I can't argue with their top-line result. But I can certainly take issue with the rest of their list. Specifically...where's Django? Not in the top 10 even?
One of the coolest music vids ever, in my view. And worth noting how much rock&roll Django invented. He was the first guy to use the lead/rhythm guitar combination. In fact, he once said to his Hot Club violinist partner Stéphane Grappelli that the band should hire a third guitarist so that when he (Django) soloed he had two rhythm guitarists backing him up.
Which is to say that Lynrd Skynrd couldn't have existed if this little Belgian Gypsy hadn't blazed the trail. And, just to clarify, Lynryd Skynrd not existing would have been a bad thing.
And, I'm sorry, where's Robin Trower? Esp.
..from his Procul Harum days, when he sounded like Clapton. Later he sounded a bit like like Hendrix. For example here (still with PH):
Also: Van Halen is way overrated. Just gobs of notes played real fast. You young guitar players of today, don't be like that.
