Dude's a bug Buckethead fan, and he's pretty wizard-y with the guitar. I saw him do the nun-chucks solo, shit's crazy. But it's more 'shredd-y' guitar than the bluesy guitars of Izzy and Slash. I prefer Izzy and Slash.
Would prefer the original GN'R, but can't shit on the new line-up, either. Liked Brain better than Farrer, but DJ Ashba is a badass, so...it's apples and oranges, ya know?? Some people dig it...
At the end of the day, The only 'shredder'-type guitarists I'm into would be like, Van Halen, Dimebag, Al DiMeola, etc.
Buckethead has some beautiful songs that arn't about shredding he can play real emotional ballads. He plays great funk & has stuff with Bootsy Collins and Snoop Dog he is very diverse musician. Buckethead > Slash & Slash has been my favorite for a long time I just recognize a superior guitarist. Now I think Slash is over rated and he doesn't put forth the effort to push himself. He has drop off from his days in GnR & they all try to hold on to that fame with the band recognition and Slash and Duff arn't in it.
The RRHF was a joke they sold out & Axl didn't want any part of it.
