I can't believe so many ppl r saying Slash is overrated... To be honest i used to think so too, until i listened more closely to Guns N Roses stuff... Paradise City, Nightrain, Sweet Child O' Mine, Civil War, Mr. Brownstone, etc. really show off Slash's abilities... He can play really fast but he can also play slower and make it sound amazing...

Slash isn't that great. He's a really good improviser, but I'm not a huge fan of his riffs.

He'd be one of the overrated ones in my book.

I think the guitarists from Blind Guardian are highly underrated. Chuck Schuldiner, too.

So many others. There are so many good guitarists who don't get enough recognition.

Why?

Aesthetically speaking, all great artists strive to limit themselves in order to become trully creative. Creativity comes from boundaries.

Overrated- Cobain, Vai (all excellent technique, but no feel), The Edge.
WAY Underrated- Peter Klett of Candlebox
Underrated- Kelly Theyil (Soundgarden), Mike McCready (Pearl Jam), Alex Lifeson (Rush), Zakk Wylde (people talk about him, but Rhoads overshadows him as far as Ozzy's work goes, so he doesn't get the credit he deserves)

Why? Because Darrell was a second-rate guitarist who played to be paid? Because he "kept the solo alive in the 90's" when in fact thousands of bands were playing huge solos in the underground? That Darrell had ridiculously aweful tone, and his solos were samey?

Nope.

Underrated - Sir Nukto Geiismortt

Overrated - Darrell Lance Abbott, Brian Haner Jr..

As for Slash, I'm really sick of all the love for the guy. He's pretty good (and puts on a good show), but he wasn't even the better guitarist in GNR. Izzy wrote almost all the stuff, and the band completely sucked without him (The Spaghetti Incident........). He doesn't get anywhere near amount the credit he should get-and that Slash gets.
