Oh please - more like "My pretentious list of guitarists, many of whom you've never heard of, since you're not as hip as me". If you're going to title a list "Greatest Guitarist of All Time", you'll have to be prepared to step outside your own little genre.
It's funny how the opening paragraph slags off Robert Johnson, Clapton, Hendrix and Van Halen. It's as if the idea of being famous for a reason never occurs to Spin (which is not unusual anyway). What twaddle.
Since the guitar was apparently not even invented until 1985, we can forget about Charlie Christian, Django Reinhardt, Pete Townsend, Chet Atkins, Steve Cropper, Carlos Santana and many, many more, eh?
