So i honestly don't get why people are so in love with slash. He is a good guitarist but people treat him like he is the god of rock and roll. So would somebody please explain to me why people love him the way they do.

B/c he has a great presence to him. He also did a song live w/ Micheal Jackson which I'm sure hyped his image up a lot. He did a decent solo.
I've gotten a lot of LOLs in my time but I choose not to sig them to not look like a pretentious douchebag

because he has feeling and writes cool riffs/solos/songs/etc. I mean seriously, you play Paradise city or welcome to the jungle at a sporting event/show and people go crazy. Not to mention he looks cool and acts cool.


Call me a fanboy if you must, but thats how i feel. Not to mention hes not half bad at guitar lol.

edit: Also, all of these "Why does everyone (love/hate) *insert name of musican*" threads suck on a major level.

A lot of people who aren't into rock music probably just associate him with the guitar hero video games, and since they don't get rock music anywhere else they just put him as the best and idolize him as a guitar hero.

There's something about his playing style most people love, you can really feel something behind is solos, and his riffs are usually pretty damn awesome aswell.

He was also in one of the most influential bands ever, and he is the epitome of cool, and is the perfect example of the "Sex, Drugs and Rock N Roll" lifestyle

because he writes very "like-able" guitar solos.

even before i started playing guitar i would be able to practically sing out the things that he wrote because he writes them in a very simple and melodic fashion...the general mass of people seem to like that.

So did Eddie Van Halen, who I personally think is better that Slash, but I think Slash still has more hype than him.

You also have to include the fact that Slash was in Guitar Hero too.

Slash is a great guitarist in every sense of the term...

..but Axl Rose totally ruins Guns N Roses for me, so yeah......


And I know he played for Velvet Revolver and stuff too. But still.

The difference between Eddie and Slash is Slash's prescence, his top hat is awesome. Everyone knows the top hat. Eddie has the the guitar (wow i forget which one it is ) The top hat beats the guitar anyday, i am sorry

Guitar Hero hyped up his image a lot. I just read his book, it was pretty good, and he seems really shy.

Btw, has anyone ever seen Slash wearing anything other than leather?
