As the title says, who do you think the most badass guitarist is. Badass can refer to their skill, style of play, appearance or whatever as long as it fits.

My choices are Robb Flynn from Machine Head:



and Zakk Wlyde:

Dave Mustaine. He says what he thinks and he don't give a **** if people like it or not. He has offended a lot of people this way but he keeps speaking his mind anyway. Pretty Badass IMO. Good guitarist and brilliant songwriter too.

Zakk Wylde's NOT a hardass. Kids, get this out of your head.

My vote for most badass guitarist goes to Dave Mustaine. He'll speak his mind, do what he wants, play some AMAZING songs, and look badass doing it.

Dimebag's dead, he won't do anything to mustaine. And he was fat.

No. He's one of the most down to earth guitarists. Watch any of his interviews.

Because he was fat? Dime was not fat. He was by no means in shape, but he certainly wasn't fat.

i'd also have to go with Mustaine for the attitude. the guy may be a total dick, but he doesn't care what people think about him and says what he wants. he's also got skill to back up his big mouth. thats pretty badass, even if i don't really like the guy.

Well, mainly 'cos he's dead. I supose I used the wrong wording a little bit, perhaps "slightly chubby" would work better?

Dave Mustaine is also a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, so I have my doubts that Dimebag would kick his ass. Mustaine is the most badass guitarist around these days. And he was a junkie/alcoholic for many years and he's still going strong and making music.

My words worked better.

Mustaine. Slash was pretty badass back in his ol' days, **** the man died, his heart almost ruptured due to alchohol cosumption and he can still play/talk.

Oh come on, how is Zakk Wylde not badass, kiddo? Look at him!
The braided, long beard, the bandana, the long hair, the muscles, the leather jacket and armbands, the insane amount of riffage, the way he slung his guitar.

Totally cool. Maybe overdone, but cool.
