    Man, where the fuck did you learn to spell like that? o_O
    ZAKK WYLDE IS AN OK GUITARIST FOR WHAT HE CHOOSES TO PLAY, BUT HIS VOCALS ARE PURE SHIT.
    Jimmy Page I have respect for as far as the legacy he had created for himself. His playing, however, is not really my style. But he's a real cool dude. I actually somehow ended up on the same airplane with him going from Atlanta to London in 96 and had a chance to literally speak to him until the topics ran out. And I still think that the only reason he actually cared to carry on a conversation with me was because I never was a huge Zep fan and it was purely about playing guitar.

    So this is another one of those threads where people just try to one-up each other to show how fucking cool you all are, eh?

    Cunts.

    Black Label Society are good 'meat and potatoes' metal, as it were. Nothing particularly innovative, but a nice filling meal, all the same.

    I saw their show in November and I don't care what anybody says. Zakk Wylde is a god.

    Seems like it, doesn't it? This is the last time I'm opening this thread.

    They're awful, and Zakk Wylde is totally overrated

    I agree 100%
    Once you reach a certain level in guitar it is all simple
    I think Zakk Wylde is overratted
    I also think Petrucci, Malmstein, Vai, Dimebag, and all shredders are overratted. now they have talent, don't get me wrong. but they can all play each others shit
    playing fast is one of the easiest ways to sound good
    and i don't want to hear any shit about petrucci's stint at berkley because if you pay attention to his solos, he didn't learn shit. A chromatic scale (1213141516 up and down the neck) played really fast on a downtuned guitar is easy as shit.
    i think they all have talent, but they are nowhere near the "best guitar player in the world"

    ^Yeah, sure those 'artists' can be impressive but I wouldn't listen to their music and appreciate it as a form of art and expression, which is the main reason I listen to music.

    ...and with BLS songs I find myself waiting for the solos... the riffs are usually quite dull and shallow... and even then, the solos get boring and repetitive too.

    I find them very plain, even though Wylde seems like a competent enough guitarist.

    My ex-girlfriend was really into them and played them around me all the time. I heard songs here and there that were alright, but never enough to justify purchasing anything.
