Slash Blasts Rock Scene
Slash thinks there is "nothing positive" about the current rock scene. The legendary guitarist admits he is unhappy about the lack of "spirit" in the current guitar-based music scene and doesn't know where the next big thing will come from. He said: "I usually hate talking about the state of rock music, because there's nothing positive to say about it. The whole vibe of new, exciting hard rock bands seems non-existent right now. "I always say that the heavy metal spirit is alive and well and holding its own, but the broader rock 'n' roll thing of bands like AC/DC or Guns N' Roses seems pretty slim. The rock 'n' roll spirit is extremely diminished. "There's no shortage of bands out there trying to make it, but they're hard pressed to get a foot in the door. There's no movement on the streets." Slash admits he can understand why pop artists now outsell rock musicians and insists he appreciates the "truly gifted", regardless of the genre they perform. He added: "As a musician who has played with a lot of pop artists over the years, I can appreciate anyone who is truly gifted in one genre. Like in any genre, there's a couple of people in the pop world that are brilliant and then there's a lot of fluff and c--p. You can't hold it against pop music for being popular." Thanks for the report to Contactmusic.com.
