Perhaps I have an older version of this than the one listed here. Here the publishers say classical guitarist John Williams is included. In the edition I own, however, Williams is listed in the back section under "Other Great Guitarists," with no bio information.
What were they thinking?
I am a Metal fan, it's not my first pick to listen to on a daily basis, but when I noticed this issue in the book I somehow felt I needed to come and share it with someone. I'm sure it would be hard to include every single guitarist within this book, but with the range and depth they went into every genre / aspect of guitarists, there should be no way that he would be left out. It's plainly obvious he was stepped over for whatever reason. It's pretty unforgivable. This fact alone turned me off to the book, which is a shame.
The layout of each entry, along with the quick, easy to read but thorough bio's make this book easy to recommend. Unfortunately, I can't get this issue out of my twisted OCD brain. If you can, which most normal people will, this book is awesome to have laying around. Many people have sat for long periods in my living room not saying a word with this book in their hands.
