DJ Ashba, Richard Fortus, Bumblefoot — Guns N' Roses, Chinese Democracy


DJ, Richard, and Bumblefoot keep the dream alive by nailing the classic tunes by GnR live and innovative Chinese Democracy numbers.

It seems so weird to see a nod published for the new gnr guitar lineup. Wish it was fleshed out a bit more - this reads like an afterthought or token gesture and GNR and Chi Dem are listed like two separate projects... and so they are.

I'm only familiar with some of the list. Seems a bit fluffy but OK.

This one below made me smile, Mike is from my area and I watched him and Staind bassist Johnny April in their Glamorous formative years. Johnny's a trooper and a no nonsense team player - any band would be glad to have him in the lineup. He's been in some great bands before this one. Good on Mike for ditching the image stuff to just play music. It got him into Staind and on this list! At least Mike got some adjective abuse, unlike DJ, Richard and Ron.

Mike Mushok, Staind — Staind


Mike Mushok infuses airtight shredding into detuned guttural grooves on
Staind's self-titled masterpiece. He oscillates between unnerving,
unique rhythms and gut-wrenchingly catchy solos. Walking his own path,
Mushok continually blurs the line seamlessly between mainstream and
metal.

If they wanted to praise the guitarists on ChiDem then they should have mentioned Buckethead & Finck.
