During an interview for Loudwire, Slash was asked to point out a guitarist of the new generation of whom he is a fan.
Guns N ‘Roses guitarist explained that it’s “very difficult to choose”, as there are “tons” of great guitar players lately, some of them “really good”.
“I like watching these guys online, or on YouTube, someone who really gets me connected, or someone who sent me a link saying that it’s for me to check in. I don’t know the names of any of them, but there are brilliant people out there. And they are very young. ”
“I would say guitarists like Gary Clark Jr., who is no newcomer, but for me it’s compared to the others I’ve heard. I consider it phenomenal.”
