Why is everybody such a slash fanboy? It seems to me there have been a ton of little slash fanboys where i live in the past few months. anyone else have this problem?

Is that a ukulele in your pants, or did you just rip ass to the tune of "Aloha Oi"?


I met Sonic Youth on June 30th, and Mars Volta on Oct 20th.

thank u TS i hate these new slash fans. they don't listen to reasoning. they all thing he is the greatest guitar player ever, which he is not. he is not as talented as alot of guitar players. anyone can put on a top hat, light a cig and over bend a note.

We get it he's good. But the TS is right, everyone is out to give him sexual favors.

I think you have already noticed that you made an anti-slash thread in the Slash-fanboy nest(UG)...rest in piece brother
Oh, ask me why, and I'll spit in your eye
#15
You could say this about almost any guitarist in a popular band.

#16
Yes, he's good. No he's not god at the guitar, but look at the progress he's made throught his life, then tell me he doesn't deserve fanboys.
#17
He's had waaaaay more sex that you'll ever have with waaaay hotter chicks. Plus hes been part of some legendary tunes. Some people are bound to like him.

Hey could be worse right? You could have a bunch of people worshipping some false idol they made up, and turn up at your house trying to convert you.
God and Country are an unbeatable team; they break all records for oppression and bloodshed.
#18
It's cause Slash is just so damn cool. A lot of people like him more for his style and personality than his guitar playing.
#20
Because he's more talented than the average guitarist (but still not THAT talented), he has a pose/image, and he covertly exploits his own image.

#23
I won't say that he's the best in terms of skill. But he is a good guitar player because he has solos that sound good, and he knows how to play guitar. He might not be comparable to Satch or Vai, but not everybody really cares how fast somebody can play. Kind like me. I like Slash. But I'm not one of those people that idolizes just one guitar player, either. People that just idolize one guitarist don't really get out much, and are closed-minded.

Anyone can do it but he's the only one that can pull it off. He may not be the best but at least the man's got style.

Why is everyone so jealous of Slash I mean he's good I'm a fanboy I admit it but have you realised how pathetic this thread is your complaining about people liking Slash. Get a life. and I'm not one of the narrow minded ones I don't think he's best He's just my favourite.

#26
Because he's a ****ing legend who has written some really good leads, that's why. A lot of the hype is on the image too, Izzy Stradlin also would get the attention he deserved if he'd have a more "outstanding" image/personality. But music is a lot about looks... Sadly...

I'm also kind of a slash-fanboy(as the name could suggest), but there are many other good guitarists too. There are much worse topics for a thread imo.

I don't get why so many seem to JUST like Slash. There are kids here who wear Slash shirts. Not Guns and Roses or Velvet Revolver, I see that as fine. But everyone owns a copy of his biography and owns multiple shirts idolizing just slash.

Personal preference. Why do you care? Just shut up and let them like who they like. The only annoying thing about Slash fanboys, are people like you who come to start control freaking them about who's better in your eyes.

This whole thread is pathetic. Why do you care about Slash fanboys? I don't have the problem, only five people I know even know who the hell he is. Let people like who they want. Slash is my favourite guitarist. Go on. Brainwash me.

My friend read his book, and now he's like an ultimate fan. He's an annoying prick sometimes.
Hey look, a stoner/doom album.

Slash is a great player, no doubt about it. Not necassarily the best, but that doesn't mean he can't be great.

As a guitar player he (compared to the guitarists I listen to) can't play for ****.

But his whole image and style is very kewl........................or not.
#37
I don't mind as long as they can name a song he played guitar on other than Sweet Child or Welcome To The Jungle
#38
slash is awesome. come up with licks and have chops like him and then talk smack.


wankster.
...because the last thing the world needs is another metal guitarist.

Me.

My band.

I like Fall Out Boy. I don't like you.
#39
yeah he is a great guitarist and Mr. Brownstone is one of my favorite riffs, but i'm getting pretty sick of all the 11 year old fanboys who only know sweet child.
