Is anyone else offended that this new GW magazine cover features Dan Donegan (Disturbed) in a picture with loads of references to the classic Maiden picture that goes with The Trooper?

GW magazine gets worse and worse with every issue.

They had a big article about how he was such a trooper, I didn't really care. It kinda just kept going tho. I was not impressed.

because Dan Donegan is hardly worthy of being in a picture that represents (basically) long and fast guitar solos, when he, himself, is incapable.


Edit:

obviously, I do.

...it was supposed to represent him being a trooper. Like, never quitting and all that jizz jazzery.

How can you be so sure that he is incapable?

And that actually offends you?

I can't believe people get butthurt about the literary devices used in writing articles about guitarists.

because I watched the video of him teaching his solo.

It sounded teh crap
#16
Quote by windmill0466
teaching his solo for his song written in his style which per chance does not favor flashy guitar solos?


No. He sounded crap playing his own solo. lots of string noise and generally bad technique.
#17
and we give the slightest of a ****ing **** why? seriously who cares what you think. you think a singular member of an ONLINE guitarists/bassists/whoever else likes to be here community is going to change anything or that anyone is going to even care?
I am me. Live with it.

it's not as if maiden's guitarists are Shawn Lane, Paul Gilbert and Vai is it?

Yeah. people, like Lemoninfluence, are hypocrites and should have all their opinions invalidated from here on out.

They don't suffer from excessive string noise or bad technique though?

well actually Paul Gilbert tries to get string noise.

my point was that he's being elitist over some mediocre guitarists.

Jesus, you sound like a big bitch. You sure you're really offended by this?

And, as someone said, Maiden do indeed suck anyway.

Yeah, though, he was referring to unwanted string noise. I like making string noise, though I also suffer from the unwanted kind as well

I wouldn't say they're 'mediocre' (though, perhaps on a technical spectrum they'd sit around the middle somewhere), but I would say they are definitly overated by many.

If that offends you then you should just do yourself a favour and jump off a bridge.
It'll save you the hassle of life with things that actually matter.
#30
Whats the matter, got your rags?
The guy plays in a band that doesn't require guitar solo's frequently, your entire argument is based on this video that you haven't linked. Hey, maybe if he played fast you'd be bitching about how his soloing has no meaning and he's just a show off.
If you can't actually deal with the fact that a guitar magazine has a guitarist on the cover and an article about him, then go and whine about it in a video on youtube.

Anyway I think Disturbed are very overrated. Not bad, just overrated. And to whoever said Iron Maiden sucks, +a lot of points.

I respect that they were big influences in a lot of the music I like, but I also get amusement out of the fact that they're such huge inspirations to everyone, and yet they kinda suck.

This thread fails. TS needs to get over himself, because I'm sure he's perfect and would have been a much better choice for the GW cover.

The only thing that offended me about that Guitar World was the fact that they had an advertisment as the cover,and then you turn the ad cover to get to the page with what should be on the cover of the magazine.
