Well you see there are these people called Nazis and the TS is one and his band The Final Solution is looking out for their competition...

Seriously though, Religion has nothing to do with being a good musician, nor does race or gender...

What a politically correct society we live in when people think this thread is inappropriate...

There was a thread earlier today about "Favorite British Guitarists". Nobody took offense with that one.

Not a shredder/guitarist but,
Mike Portnoy is an awesome drummer (he doesn't practice Judaism as a religion though).

Gilbert is not a Jew.




Of all the things that Gilbert has been called over the years, that's the best.

Eddie Van Halen?
I don't always post in the threads but when I do its random and pointless because I'm ignorant enough to think you care.

Geddy Lee. Geddy is the way his grandmother pronounced Gary, so thats what his nickname is. He can also play a bass very well. I like his singing, but its not for everyone.

Jewish is not an ethnicity. Slash is Black and English.
I agree that Slash is not a "shredder".

That sounded so robotic, so recycled. He's not a shredder too.

Impossible, Jews and guitar just dont go together, like Magikarp and dry land.

Actually it is somewhat of an ethnicity as there are many physical traits associated with a person with Jewish ancestry, though many of these traits stem from the mixture of semetic roots intermarried with Europeans.

No man, that's what the Nazi's and Zionists want you to believe.

Judiasm is a religion, not an ethnicity.
The only reason that there are similar triats is that traditionally Jews only married Jews, and in small communities there wasn't that much diversity.

He's still one hell of a guitar player.

Slash is ethnically Jewish, not sure about religiously, though.
He's a freak of nature, but we love him so.

Geddy's Jewish, his grandmother spoke Yiddish and that's a Jewish language.

Judaism is the religion, but Jews are an ethnicity.
