I always associate these types of lists with NME
I'm kind of surprised Q published one. Maybe it's just been too long since I picked up a copy.

To be honest, I am a little surprised Bono isn't on the list.

fuck them for putting Lou Reed on there, and at #1? The guy recorded a great album back in 2000 (Ecstasy), and even if the Edgar Allan Poe thing was uneven, it was certainly an interesting effort.

Bunch of assholes.

And my opinion on Queen involves the words "dull", "shite" and "70s", but nevermind.
Change that to *HAS!
Right, Out.

Yeah, Mike Mills? Where did that come from? Maybe it was those Nudie suits.

OK let's contextualise this. Q's definition of pathetic means not being what someone on murmurs (I googled the Mike Mills thing, it couldn't really be the hair) calls "a latex, poofed up hair, shiny lip glossed, groupie banging, hard drinking, drug popping, lawsuit pending god", which explains Nicky Wire being on there for being a clean freak.

Basically they're slagging off nice wealthy musicians for not conforming to what is a very narrow minded definition of 'rock n' roll'. Pretty crap list.

That said Brian May still has crap hair, as does Mike Mills.

Edit: Apparently Brian May's on there for um, liking astronomy.

maybe I'm missing something, but WHY is Lou Reed at number one?

I don't understand why roger doultry would even qualify to be on that list. That would be like bono being on the list. He's not on the band to play guitar, he may play it occasionaly live, but he's the vocalist, not the musician.
