I'd agree that he is overrated because he is SO famous, especially to non-musicians, but that doesn't mean he's not good.

Slash cant play anything besides slow paced, bend-oriented solos where he uses emotion to hide his horrible technique

No, hes a great rock guitarist, not the best but he has his own particular style which in many peoples opinion sounds great, obviously hes not as technically gifted as eddie van halen, steve vai etc etc
Hes only overated because people who dont play guitar think hes incredible, hes still undoubtedly a great guitarist
The main issue here should really be wtf is he wearing in that video

Is he overrated compared to other artists or compared to your abilities?

I wish I would have the same level as he has no matter how he compares to other artists.
Just because I have some strong opinions doesn't mean I agree with everything I say.
#10
He's not overrated because he's not really rated. He's more famous as a personality than he is recognized as a top guitarist. That's not to say he's not good or I don't like him or anything.

I hate that shit.

Also I hate neckbeards buying expensive ugly guitars like the explorer or any other custom goth-like guitar to play stupid trash metal/screamo riffs and "solo's".

Dammit I'm mad.

His "style" is slow, bend-oriented solos which may sound good, but are in no way impressive

To each his own.
I like metal solos as long as the vocals keep their throat closed.

Music isnt about being impressive. Slash is as much a songwriter as a guitarist and the aspect I like the most about his "no way impressive" "slow, bend-oriented solos" is his phrasing, and if you listen to a lot of pre-written, non-improvised (not like this shred-fest, probably half-learnt by ear with little time to prepare) solos, they are some of the best hard rock solos of all time.

Because technique is extremely important in rock music.

Slash is awesome. Overrated? Maybe. But he's still awesome.
