i mean, why? he didnt innovate anything besides his stupid top hat! dont get me wrong i like some of his stuff, but i dont think he's a legend or anything. if you agree, post here, but no flamers! this is my opinion, and if you think otherwise about slash i respect that, just please no flames or swearing.

hes great because of his riffs and solos. Some of them may be be complicated to the point of sweep picking and tapping etc but you cant deny that they are legendary solos. In the same way that a simple riff like smoke in the water is legendary. Everyones entitled to their opinion tho, i personally cant see why people idolize(sp?) John Frusciante but there you go.

hmm lets see

hes composed/help composed tons of songs
Influenced millions of songwriters and guitarists.
he makes whammy effect by bending his guitar neck (innovation)
his hair is sexy
leather pants are sexy
he is sexy
he helped make les pauls popular

idk. I kind of liked an arguement I had a while back as an example buckethead versus Slash. Buckethead can get as technical and shreddy as he wants but slash has more style in his pinky finger than buckethead ever will. His music style is one of a kind. He put up with axle rose for many years give him props

okay i i respect your opinion but the bending neck thing was used many times before (most notably randy rhoads) and even mediocre guitarists like angus young have influenced many ppl and please tell me you are a girl because thinking slash is sexy is a wee bit creepy.

No idea, his not bad or anything but i've never thought of him as anything special.

Slash is a great great guitar player. He can shred when he wants to (paradise cuty) but he does it with style and intelligence, not just for showing how fast he can move his fingers. And he is one of the most rock n' roll people in the world. When Guns was going nowhere all he wanted to do was keep writing, keep recording and keep touring so he made Snakepit. Then he did the Blues Ball, then Snakepit again, and he just made two very successful albums with VR. And now in VR's hiatus, he's working on his1st solo album.

The dude never stops!! He dedicates every moment of his life to rocking the world!

That's why.

I'm not going to argue you with you, seeing as you say Slash has a "stupid top hat" then proceed to disallow flamers in this thread.

Contradiction much?

he is the embodiement of rawk and roll. I wish my girlfriend would have sex with him then i would have sex with her and possibly absorb some of his awesomeness through his leftovers!

Its all down to preference..........everyone is a legend to someone. Take a guitarist you like e.g van halen or randy rhoads. I like them both but some people who may not be into they type of music will ask the same question - 'Why are they legends, what did they ever do?'

This thread should really be closed, its kinda a vs thread.

Everyone who likes slash vs everyone who doesnt.

so you're asking why people think slash is so great ... and you only want people that don't think slash is so great? i'm not flaming or anything but that's retarded. anyway, not everyone's looking at the big picture. if you wanna look at great guitarists who aren't really innovators, look at carlos santana. It's not the innovation that we respect and for the guy who sez "he's not a shredder" it's not speed either. He's a feel guy. He can do more with 3 notes than most guitarists can with 30. He's a very good guitar player who wrote and played on one of the greatest rock albums of all time.


but as for the "slash has more style in his pinky than buckethead blah blah blah blah." I resent that. Buckethead is different but he is very stylistic in his playing. people who judge his playing as "senseless shred" don't even listen to his music and/or are slash fanboys. he is extremely underrated.

Is this another Yngwie or Malmsteen we're talking about? Because Malmsteen certainly knows what he's doing when playing blues.

this kid i know bum rapes slash so i asked him why he likes slash, and he goes "because he is amazing" so i ask him why he is amazing and he said "because he is amazing"

i think he is pretty lame because his name is slash.... why would you have a name that people say "oh i need a slash, brb" basically he is calling himself piss. what a piss-head
#28
Disliking someone's music because of their image is just ridiculous. In my opinion, Slash has made some good music, which is the point of playing guitar, therefor, good guitarist. Just because they didn't change anything doesn't make their music suck.

I completely agree. And the bending the guitar neck is really awesome. I'm just too scared I'll snap my LP in two if I do it

Slash blew up so big because of guitar hero...you guys know that, right?


Are you f**kin' retarded? he's been a guitar icon since the late 80s.

guitar hero chose him BECAUSE he's famous. Guitar hero just made him bigger.


great theory: let's get someone who's not really that big of a deal. that'll rack up our sales. (sarcasm)
