I find it offensive when people say that black people are only good at bass guitar. does anyone know any black lead guitarist except for the well known like hendrix.
If not i'm going to bridge that gap..........

Isn't the guitarist from Thin Lizzy black?


I know he's the singer, but I don't know if he's the guitarist too.

Bloc Party?

I can't stand them but does the black singer play guitar or is it bass?

I can't say I've really paid much attention.

I would have mentioned Kele (Bloc Party) but TS did say lead guitarist, so I didn't.

He does play guitar, though he's hardly a lead guitarist.

Me. Im actually black.

The reason theres heaps of black bass players and not man black guitarists is because all the black bass players mainly play jazz, funk, all that ****.

Theres rarely any black people in rock because of the "im black so i listen to hip-hop and deal drugs" stereotype

Why does it matter what colour you are? Or anyone else for that matter? Stop being so damn foolish, boy, and don't dedicate your life to dispelling negative stereotypes, you'll give yourself a complex.


And pretty much all of the original blues/jazz guitarists were black anyways!

My point exactly.

See a couple of asian guitarists on youtube -> "OMGz teh AZNz R teh pwnererz!"

It's all just generalisation and stereotyping.
