I'd stick Lou Reed on there,.

totally and buddy guy.

cobain SHOULD NOT be on that list at all. He sucks ass.

its not that he sucks....he was creative in the stuff he made....melody and such....but compared to guys like clapton, SRV, buddy guy, ectect he doesnt match up.

These guys have studied guitar their whole life, know pretty much everything there is to know about keys and improvising and what not. Kobain didnt try and do that....he just made music, and rarly did improvisations like clapton, SRV, buddy guy, ectect
