Music magazine Rolling Stone Indonesia discovered 100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time (23 rd edition, July 2008). Two of them are among this blog collections. Song (We’re Gonna) Rock Around the Clock, taken from album entitled Bill Haley and His Comets (1954), is in the 30 th rank. This song cited as the first rock and roll song which achieved Number One in the chart. Danny Cedron who played guitar in rock n roll style become role model for the next generation of rock n roll guitarists.

Other song is Beat It from album Thriller by Michael Jackson (1982). This song which is ranked in the 81 st position cited as a soul hit with heavy riff and melody. Paul Jackson jr. and Lukather played hard riff, an Eddie Van Halen played a fast tempo melody. At least, if there is a researcher for music history wish to find those two albums, this blog can show the historical albums. *
