I don’t understand how he couldn’t make it onto that list.
It may be that there are so many talented metal guitarists out there that they can’t list all of them. They could also list Andre Olbrich (Blind Guardian) or Kai Hansen (Gamma Ray / Helloween)

I'm not here to argue the merits of Rolling Stone. I'm here to educate. I have that magazine and there is a list in it of the people that were asked to vote. There's almost 60 people on that list. 3 of them work for Rolling Stone. Almost all of the others are guitar players.

I'm not taking the time to type them all but here's a snippet: Eddie Van Halen, Dave Mustaine, Alex Lifeson, Joe Perry, Brian May.

From what I recall, there was a recent year where Rolling Stone didn’t even have Malmsteen on their list of ‘greatest guitarists of all time’ which is complete insanity regardless of one’s personal taste for his music or not.

Ran across a nice website here a little on the lists

That article is still just somebody's opinion. Even worse than the article, it's one person's opinion.

The only thing these lists are good for is starting a conversation and possibly introducing people to new music. The only reason I got involved was to clarify who voted in the poll because it wasn't Rolling Stone.

I'm not really a fan but Andy LaRocque of King Diamond is a phenomenal player!

I'm a huge fan of The MC5 and I always thought Wayne Kramer was underrated as hell.

Paul Kossoff of Free is certainly not underrated in guitarist circles but he's not a mainstream household name. Free never really broke huge in the states but Paul was a truly inspirational player!

I think Mike Campbell of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers plays some VERY tasty licks and is underrated.

Neil Schon of Journey should've gotten more recognition but he had the unfortunate task of sharing a band with Steve Perry who's voice overshadowed everything!

His work with Ozzy was fantastic! His tone was so great! I loved him on Speak of the Devil and I thought he played the Sabbath tunes better than Rhoads.

Prince is a well regarded guitarist and makes it onto almost any list of greats.
He doesn't belong in this thread.

Good call on Rik Emmett. Not just a great guitarist but also a great frontman/singer.

Gary Moore. Shapes of Things live off of We Want Moore. Masterpiece.
