This might be the dumbest thing I've read on the internet all year. Izzy is a mediocre player who just plays bar chords like a 10th grader. He's done nothing notable since G&R. Zero. No one cares. Not anything even close to a decent song. Anyone bashing Slash in favor of Izzy is a classic case of guitar nerds trying tooo hard to be different. Just like the person who likes an Indy band, but suddenly hates them once they make it big. Stunted "trying to be cool" mindset of a middle schooler? Slash is why G&R made it, period. Their careers are polar opposites. Izzy is a replaceable nobody that had little impact on the G&R success. Izzy just got lucky, and was a case of being in the right place at the right time, and he knew it, and he knew he had nothing on Slash, who played circles around this high school caliber guitarist, so he bailed out before everyone figured out he was in way over his head. That's why he's done nothing anyone cares about in 30 years. It was all Slash, Duff, and Axl. Izzy was nothing more than a backing player who should have gotten paid $5/hr. which is about what he's made after he stopped riding the coattails of real rock stars.
