In connection with the release of the new documentary It Might Get Loud, Time Magazine music critic Josh Tyrangiel has published a list of the 10 best electric guitar players. From our standpoint, the only thing this list stands out for is its lack of originality. Still, we’re darn excited about seeing It Might Get Loud so we’re still going to go ahead and publish the list. Read on for the entire list.
1. Jimi Hendrix
3. B.B. King
5. Eric Clapton
6. Jimmy Page
7. Chuck Berry
8. Les Paul
9. Yngwie Malmsteen (OK, this one is a surprise)
11. Johnny Ramone (for the last 20 years these types of lists always go to 11)
What do you think of this list? Please let us know in the comments.
