All people who dislike Slash are fanboys? I don't like Slash or his playing. Overrated, Someone said? Definitely. I think brad is a pretty decent player. LP's music doesn't fit with 5 minute long solo parts or whatever metalheads seem to expect from every guitar player in the world, So brad doesn't play it. We don't really know how good he is because he plays whatever WORKS with the rest of the band, Not whatever he wants to do.
