As far as i know the only liquor that should not be stored after opened is wine, and even then it's mainly the french one. American wine usually has conservatives in it to stop this.

Marty Friedman HIMSELF said he doesn't like to play metal. He's one of the best soloists, DEFINATELY NOT THE BEST METAL GUITARIST.

I personally think It's hard to tell who's the best metal guitarist because they've all contributed a crapload to the world of metal, all in different aspects.

Just because he said he doesn't like PLAYING it doesn't mean he's not good at it does it??

That doesn't mean he's not one of the best metal guitarists. His playing is phenomenal on the albums he did with Megadeth.

And as for the poll, I would pick none of the above. But Randy is the best out of all of them.

Righteously said before, they've all contributed to the genre, but for opinions' sake I'm going to call Tony Iommi because he was part of a monster that left a singer in its havoc, without Ozzy being big enough to audition the best artists of the crop (which led to Randy) there wouldn't have been Randy as we know him, and Zakk & Dimebag were talking about how they listened to Rhoads stuff when they were starting out, maybe dimebag would have became the one we know him for, but Zakk would definitely have gotten a harder path.

For the remaining I can't stand Kerry King playing, and Kirk is not very constant in his records' playing quality.
I love music, if music would be a girl then I'd date her, until then let's get back on Earth

I don't even think that Kerry King and Kirk Hammett are the best guitarists in their bands. Zakk Wylde's overrated (not saying he sucks), Tony Iommi for innovation is one of the best metal players-but not actual skills. On this list for being an actual guitar player it's got to be Randy Rhoads.

+1, I think Kirk Hammett is a horrible lead guitarist. And I find Zakk Wylde extremely overrated as well.

It is clear that TS has a small penis. Carry on.
Dyer's Eve is awesome, and has an abnormally large penis, which doesn't act as any hinderance to his everyday life despite its freakishly large size.

Out of that list, Tony Iommi for sure. All of those guitarists except for Rhoads and Iommi are overrated, I like them(excluding Kerry King) but they aren't as good as everyone says.

EDIT: If I had to choose from that list though, I would choose Randy.

all of them (save Iommi) are horribly overrated. And he's still not the best.

I voted Kerry King because many dismiss him as a wanker (for good reason), but Slayer is responsible for the creation of death metal and on a lesser scale, black metal.

Not to mention the fact that the first two albums are fucking tremendous.

Edit: Oh yeah, *reported*

Tony Iommi

not technically the best, but where would metal guitar be without him?


EDIT: let's see how long this thread lasts. any bets?

Betting I'm going to go to sleep and wake up with this thread being closed.

But can I just take the time to comment on how downhill UG has gone with all of these new users who are complete idiots?

I mean, I've seen some bad threads...but wow...

This is like what happened 2 years ago when for the 3 straight months of summer nothing but horrible movies was coming out.
