    Default EVH featured in the RS Greatest Guitarists Magazine

    Rolling Stone has a special collectors issue "100 Greatest Guitarists" Magazine out on newstands. It features an article on EVH (besides the article that is there for EVH's listing in the Top 100.)

    It's the magazine with Jimi on the cover:

    Just to clarify, the RS issue is not their regular magazine, the issue I saw with Jimi on the cover today, was just about the guitarists, and that's it. But the picture they used for the SE was similar to that Jimi picture...

    This list isnt worth your money people Im sure of it. A few years ago they did this and put evh at 79. Some people they put a head of him, Ike turner at 78, jack white and kurt cobain. This list will be a joke!!!

    I wouldn't even wipe my rear with Rolling Stone. After they put EVH in the 70's out of 100 greatest guitarists, there's no amount of sack licking they can do to change my mind about their credibility. Their blatant political hackery doesn't win any favors with me either

    Yeah that first list was a joke. Then they did another one where instead of getting some staffer to come up with the list they got musical peers in the industry to do it. Ed was even one of the voters. Ed was in the top 10.

    Thanks for that well thought out response, but I was just trying to say that it's a little short-sighted for Van Halen fans to summarily dismiss the newer top 10 given that Ed is in the top 10 and that the voters were ACTUAL industry peers. Just sayin.

    Haven't you learned yet that unless Ed is #1 on any list, the list is pointless and will will be shit upon?

    It's not about him not being #1, it was about him being number seventy-whatever. They published it and should own it forever. The magazine sucks besides this list, it's just the most obvious example that is shared on a Van Halen fan site.

    You guys have taken the bait. They publish crazy lists like the infamous 100 Best Guitarists as a way to sell more magazines and get more traffic/hits for on their site. They weren't trying to make a statement. Proof is in the pudding: all these years later, someone around here complains about this list at least once every month.

    For the record, RS is awful. I just find it funny to watch everyone continue having a meltdown about that meaningless list.

    NoBrown,

    Do you waste time on how to describe an awesome bathroom break, making sure that everyone knows it is a well thought out and meaningful statement? I get what you are saying, but it is hard for me to even stomach the thought of reading that rag, much less paying money for it.

    RS did this to themselves once they decided they had to cater to all and keep selling magazines. I would the same thing about Sport Illustrated, especially since they came out an apologized for putting the word "ass" on the cover last year. I am all for not waving things in peoples faces just to offend them, but that was ridiculous.

    Were this "RSLinks" as opposed to "VHLinks" I would be right with you on this, but alas, it is not to be



    RS can now kiss my ass too

    It is what it is

    I won't insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said
