I agree with both statements...if you like his playing then he's not overrated for you...shouldn't rate or compare music - if you like it then it's good for you...
Agreed 100% but I think this thread is about what magazines said about him.
How magazines and tv shows always treat him as a guitar God.
In that case YES he's extremelly over-rated.
There are so many better guitarists(not only about technique but about composing) who never were treat like him, that's show bizz, put a fugly hat, smoke 1 cigarete per minute like if it was the coolest thing to do and play some penta boxes, bannnnnnng you're a millionaire.
But if this thread is about personal tastes, if you like him, you like him, if you hate, you hate
I hate Guns, I hate axel voice, he sounds like an out of tune screaming pig and songs don't touch me in any level, Slash playing live is terrible, I already watched youtube clinics where people were screaming "learn to play your OWN stuff"
