Jimmy Hendrix, huh? Shows you how much the folks at Rolling Stone know. He was very good, but by far not #1. James Burton, Doyle Dykes, Django Reinhardt, Chet, Buddy Guy, Albert White, Duane Allman, Mark Knopfler, to name a few, certainly were, in my opinion, better technicians and strung notes together more fluidly. And, really, there are thousands more

Yeah, but Hendrix was a far bigger influence on guitar players than any of those guys. Tosin Abasi and Charlie Hunter are better than any of the guys you named from a technical standpoint, but when no one knows who you are, you aren't influencing too many people, and influence is an essential component of greatness.

Here's the full list of Rolling Stone's picks for top 100 guitarists of all time, for those who feel like dissecting it. Predictably, the list is heavily biased in favor of 1960's-70's rock, as that's Rolling Stone's favorite era.

Yes, but the purpose of storming the Bastille was not to liberate prisoners. The revolutionaries wanted to lay their hands on a large arms depot located inside the fortress.

No, they broke in to get to the croissants. Unfortunately, the pastries had been replaced with weapons, so the revolutionaries settled for those.
