Some Candid comments about Kirk Hammett

Post by 200 Bucks » Wed Apr 07, 2010 10:30 am ... mID=137982

REB BEACH from WINGER/WHITESNAKE had the following to say about KIRK HAMMETT:

When asked about the comparisons between his playing and that of METALLICA guitarist Kirk Hammett, Beach said, "I don't know the guy [Kirk], but I think he's one of the worst guitar players I've ever heard in my life. I've never heard a solo from that guy that was any good. . . This guy is out of tune, and his vibration... what is it? Vibrato. Oh my god. It sounds like a beginner."

He continued, "Back in the '80s, he was always voted best guitar player, and I'm like, 'What?! That guy is terrible.'

"I hate to say that because I might meet him one day.

"What's he play in? MEGADETH? METALLICA? Is he in METALLICA? Oh, then I have no problem doing that because in their biggest video, 'Nothing Else Matters', when they threw darts at a poster of Kip Winger, and then they showed it live — 20,000 people every night laughing at WINGER — I don't mind saying that Kirk Hammett sucks

The only thing gayer than Winger is Kirk Hammett's eye makeup

I'm sure Kirk will be crying himself to sleep every night now that the guitarist from Winger has bad mouthed his playing. Good thing he has all that cash to wipe away his tears and mascara.

While I don't think Hammet is great by any means, I wouldn't say he sucks either. He's apt and really nothing more or less. Who cares if he's been voted Best Guitar Player? Nikki Sixx used to win a shit-ton of awards for Best Bass Player too and his playing is nothing special. You don't hear me bitching and moaning about it some 20 years later. All those poles are popularity driven anyway. How many Metallica fans are there anyway?? Even a quarter of that is still more than the 35 people that voted for Reb Beach in 1988.

Beside, these days I have more of a problem with Lars' drumming than I do Kirk's "vibration".
