HOW CAN ONE POSSIBLY OMIT "SMOKE ON THE WATER"? I don't think we've discussed Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time."

I can understand why the magazine omitted many non-rock songs from the list (no Django Rheinhardt? No Hank Williams?), but how in the world could the editors have overlooked "Smoke on the Water" by Deep Purple?

Two other omissions that I happen to love: Steely Dan's "Reeling in the Years" and Jeff Beck's "'Cause We've Ended as Lovers."
