Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash has waded into the international debate on the ‘emo’ movement.
The former Guns N Roses man detests the emo scene, apparently, his unfavourable comments coming during a lament on the decline of the rock guitarist to the Daily Star.
“Rock ’n’ roll is so diluted in this millennium, you just don’t hear good solos. And I hate Emo.”
Hate is a strong word, Slash – especially in the context of the open lynchings of emo kids that’ve swept Mexico of late.
“With the exception of Jack White – who is great – the new breed of bands aren’t bringing out decent guitarists,” he said, completely ignoring my fabricated context.
Who knows, perhaps he’s read this. Slash – hates emo, loves Bellamy.
“I did a gig with Muse recently and those guys can really play. It’s not really what I’d call proper rock ’n’ roll, but they do something pretty special.”
