Re: What's so special about Slash?
its because he's marketable, he's cool looking, and people still call him Slash for god's sake.
hence gibson gives him all these sig models so people can buy them. there's even an epiphone sig model for those 12 year olds who are GNR fans and want to be like slash.
i'm not a fan of his though. i liked GNR but that's about it. the rest of his stuff didn't really stand out to me. like tarz said i wasn't "into it" plain and simple. i'm not gona crap on him, there are people who aren't "into" the music i play either.
Diceman, come on. he's done nothing for rock and roll? he brought back the lp. he (and GNR) inspired tons of young kids to play rock. he still has little kids coming to his signing events to get his autograph. you dont see peter frampton getting that. even Jimmy Page doesn't have that following.
