Double Viking links to a list of the "100 Greatest Rock Guitar Solos." As with most such music lists, it's completely f#cked up. "I'm the One" is the best Van Halen solo, Jeff Beck has 20 better solos than "Cause we've ended as Lovers," there's no mention of Skunk Baxter, and putting Allan Holdsworth's "Devil Take the Hindmost" at 74 is a joke, he could fill the top 50 by himself. Neil Young shouldn't be allowed within 100 miles of a list like this, and neither should anyone in Pearl Jam. But hey, at least Rolling Stone wasn't involved. If they had been, Jack White would have been all over the list, and I'd have to vomit.
