So, one of my Christmas pressies is a big book called The Encyclopedia of Guitar Heroes. And I have to say, its ****IN AWESOME!!!!
Anyway, there are at least 350 guitarists in it, and each one has a short 2-3 page biography about them.
Now we get to the shocking part.
I was flipping through the pages when I came across Slash, who happens to be my 3rd most hated guitarist (2nd is MAB and 1st is Herman).
So I read his biography and it says that SLASH IS ACTUALLY BRITISH!!!!
He was born in the east side of london, untill he moved when he was 11.
Anyone else find this shocking, that Saul Hudson is a Brit?
Also, anyone else have this book?

PS.Dragonforce haters will be glad to know that Herman and Sam arent even in the honorable mentions =]

Yes, I also got it for Christmas. Good book.

Well I don't know about solos but how about that Smoke on the Water riff. It's like...impossible.

Why do you hate Slash?
He's a freak of nature, but we love him so.

Music isn't the Olympics. It's not about showing other people what you can do with a piece of wood in your hands that has strings on, it's about making sounds that are good.

My grandamama got me something similar.

It's an encyclopedia of rock bands from the 60's to 00's. Pretty cool, actually.

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab

A) SLash is a guitar god, overrated player, but still writes stuff thats more melodic and fun to listen to than most shredders out there.
B) the book sounds awesome.
C) I thought that everyone knew he was English. Its a suprise to me that people DIDNT know this.

The Bible is awesome. Revelation is so badass, I mean, dragons and angels and the devil having an epic battle in the clouds? Badass.

Dave Mustaine is a better rhythm player than James, imo.

It was a joke, regardless.

How did people not know he was from England? I thought it was common knowledge, and I don't even know much about slash/GNR except for reading the first 100ish pages of Slash's book.

No, he was the original lead player. And no, that was Cliff Burton.
