    Slash vs. Van Halen Argument Lands Couple In Jail

    by Annie ZaleskiYesterday
    Conventional wisdom says that when it comes to relationships, opposites attract. Besides keeping things interesting, differences of opinion often lead to engaging, mind-expanding discussions.
    But for one Ohio couple, a healthy debate about who was the best axe-slinger ever — former Guns N’ Roses mane man Slash or riff king Eddie Van Halen – devolved into a rather nasty argument that eventually landed them in jail. Reports Sun News out of Cleveland:
    "A couple was arrested after their argument over who was the greatest guitarist of all time became so heated that Motel 6 staff was forced to call the Brook Park police.
    The boyfriend was screaming on behalf of Slash, lead guitarist for Guns and Roses. The girlfriend was jumping for Eddie Van Halen, namesake of ’80s rockers Van Halen."
    Now, to be clear, the lovebirds weren’t arrested because of the actual fight — or for their musical preferences. No, to add insult to injury, after the cops showed up and restored peace, they discovered the man and woman had outstanding warrants in other municipalities.

    If someone was arguing with me that Slash is better than Eddie, then I'd be arrested, too.

    I like Slash's guitar playing . I am a fan of his , mostly in the last couple of years .

    Having said that , between him and Eddie there's NO contest .
    I'd spent a night in the slammer too , for defending EVH .

    The boyfriend sounds like an idiot.
    Slash is a hack compared to Eddie.
    Slash has become the Dave Grohl of guitar heroes, he's considered one, just because he's Slash
    and played with Guns 'n roses.

    Don't get me wrong, i loved both Appetite & Lies, but it was because of the song's, the attitude,
    the reckless chemistry between members.
    Never one did i think, "Wow, this lead guitar player is incredible."
    He fit the material, he was charmingly sloppy, it worked.

    But i don't think i've liked anything he's done since 1989.

    I posted about this one Facebook, with the comment that if someone was arguing for Slash, I'd be in the slammer too.

    I then had some genius's say that BB King is the greatest guitarist of all time, and that Clapton and Joe Bonamassa ranks ahead of Eddie. I then said that the holy trinity is Eddie, Page and Hendrix, to which someone said "What about Satriani, Vai, Rhoads and Malmsteen? I thought better of you, Jack". He thought better of me? Satriani, Malmsteen and Vai? Are you fucking kidding me? He then said "Tell me Jack, how do Satriani and Vai not belong in your 'trinity'?", to which the BB King guy and I responded that they're just shredders with no feel, before I got so angry that I removed the whole thing.

    Some people out there have some stupid views.

    Kinda weird, the girlfriend sounds more clued in than the guy.

    People think Slash is a guitar hero because he runs around without a shirt and holds his guitar up in the air. They have no ear.

    Although I do give him on "Night Train" from the Ritz show, he does tear it up nicely!

    That girlfriend and boyfriend should sign up here, they'd fit right in.

    Some people ON HERE have stupid views:

    The Kinks rank right up there with The Archies

    Deep Purple are a C level, second rate band

    Cinderella was the best concert i've ever attended...

    Diverdown is full of duds

    WACF isn't a very good album

    Chinatown is the new Mean Street...

    and on and on it goes.

    Are they stupid views because they differ from your own ?

    I never said WACF is a shit album . I just play it less than others in my VH collection .
    CT was compared as a continuation of MS or maybe a cousin , due to similar feels and such .
    I'll take MS 10 times out of 10 , but i still like CT as well .

    Stay Frosty was also seen as ICM for 2012 . Similiar vibes , not saying one was better than the other .
