who was stung by a wasp,

No. Slash is king, no doubt about that. He may not be the fastest player, and to be honest he probably can't sweep pick very well, but the fact is that this guy can pour his heart and soul out through a guitar, and that is what, in my opinion, matters the most not just in guitar-playing but in all music. After all, music is a form of expression, and to me, sticking a 10 octave scale into a solo played at a trillion beats per minute, while no doubt skilful, is not expressing any of the guitarist's feelings. Of course, this is only my opinion, and there are exceptions, but in my mind, Slash is perhaps the greatest guitarist to ever grace this earth.

^holyspacemonkey is right, guitar playing isn't just what you can do with your fingers, but also how good you can express your feelings on guitar, and it also is very difficult to do, but in another way than playing extremely fast

X1, without "perhaps the greatest guitarist to ever grace this earth."
but he's a great player, nore feel than technique.
strat player forever.

like the guy who said that slash gave emotion into his playing instead of just picking fast with no creativity or style *cough*Herman Lee*cough* .
but with that said, i still dont think that hes the best but hes not as overrated as Kurt Cobain

No he's not. He's the kind of player who doesn't need to play fast, it sounds awesome anyway. He's got that wonderful feel for the instrument that only a few players has. I think Slash is just as great as Jiimy Page, Richie Blackmore, Joe Perry and many others.
