I don't think he's overrated at all. He's my second favourite guitarist, he's awesome. I know there's a lot of guitarists that are better skill wise, but I like him.

Me and a couple of friends got into this arguement, I was wondering how UG felt on the matter.

Slash is great, imho in his GnR days he's just the sort of guitarist who SHOULD be rated.

Edit - You will realise once you can play well, this so called "technical skill"... is almost irrelevant. It's hard to explain, but difficulity and technicality are relative. It's hard to put into words.

He's a pretty good guitarist, but h's not as great as some say he is. It's his music I don't like.

Slash was one of the FEW guitarists playing with feeling in the 80's. He made it cool again. He deserves all the respect he gets.
#23
He's just a average joe like the rest of us, his in no freaking "god" as so many 12 year old seem to think, so yes he is very overated.

Better than hooked on crack, I suppose. I'd rather know my kids are safe at home beating their meat than out in the world robbing old women for their crack fix.

What a huge coincidence. I have a butthole also.

He's alright, but nothing special. I never liked much GnR, SS or VR so I guess I'm slightly biased because I don't listen to him a lot.

my mom found me sitting in the kitchen, eating Corn Flakes from the floor. when she asked me what I was doing, I just roared at her and ran up to my room.

It seems there are so many people that bow down to slash that if he wanted he counld invoke an army of mindless devoted fans and take over the world.

Slash isnt overrated.You just think for a second, have you made an album as good as apetite for destruction?Can you even play sweet child of mine?Slash wrote and played sweet child of mine from scratch , which most of youse cant do, and you say he is over rated.

Just becouse you cant play something by a guitarist dosent mean the player has the status of god.
