i think you don't know a lot of real harmonica players. just some of the guys in this rank are great harmonica players (sugar blue, musselwhite, slim harpo, james cotton...), but the others are great musicians (for other reasons) who sometimes play harmonica, but not so good as you think. anyone could say that robert plant or ozzy osbourne are better in playing harmonica then someone like james cotton!

Though he is well known for several of his Harmonica rifs in Love Me Do, Please Please Me, and others, he is really overated. He had a hard time blowing single notes and playing the riff exactly how it could have been. Many of the other guy's on this list aren't very good either. Few can even compete with the some harp players such as Larry Adler, Little Walter, or Borrah Minevitch.

lol @ no bob dylan anywhere on this list. youd figure he would be considering this list has little to no support for any of the picks. theyre just people who happened to play, popular for other reasons. dylan deserves a spot on this ridicuolously baseless list!
