VIDEO OF THE DAY: SLASH VS. BUCKETHEAD VS. BUMBLEFOOT
We continue our week long celebration for the 20th anniversary of Appetite for Destruction with this video comparing solos from original GN’R lead guitarist Slash, his replacement, Buckethead, and Buckethead’s replacement, Bumblefoot (né Ron Thal). I don’t know Buckethead and Bumblefoot’s co-leads Richard Fortus and Robin Finck weren’t included – especially since Finck was Slash’s very first replacement, discovered by ex-GN’R/current VR drummer Matt Sorum while he and bassist Duff McKagan were still members of Guns. I can only guess it’s because Finck and Fortus, unlike their peers, actually have proper names.
