Shares Originally printed in Guitar World Magazine, December After two decades of kissing ass, Guitar World tips over a few sacred cows in a definitive guide to guitar parts that blow. Guitarists, no matter how good they are, are bound to have the occasional bad night or hit the odd bum note. Legends like Hendrix, Page, Hammett and Harrison have had their share of uninspired moments and times where ambition exceeded their technique.
In a rare moment of pure spite and malice, Guitar World asked several contributors to identify those instances when our greatest guitar heroes took their biggest pratfalls.
And, boy, rarely have we seen our writers take to an assignment with greater gusto. While our writers tended to save most of their venom for undeniably cruddy and inept solos, some had fun throwing darts at performances that were technically adept but which they deemed boring, self-indulgent or just plain absurd. Now, we enjoy the colorful Mr. So pull out the knives, put on the lobster bib and dig in.
No one, but no one, gets out of this alive. And just to show you the breadth of his chops, C. Completely devoid of taste, structure or steady tempo, this should be required listening for budding guitarists everywhere.
Leigh Stephens The heaviest band of their day, Blue Cheer made a pretty convincing case for being the lousiest as well.
Guitarists and rock critics alike have spent decades debating the worst aspect of their lone hit: Is it the witless whammy bar break in the first verse? The agonizing onenote- at-a-time full-octave climb to the final verse? Eric Clapton Clapton quit the Yardbirds in , objecting to their new, commercially oriented direction. Still feeling guilty about it three decades later, the guitarist and recovering substance abuser tried to replenish his karma points by establishing a rehab clinic on the easily accessible Caribbean island of Antigua.
Maybe John Lennon realized it was only going to get worse and pulled the plug on him. Greg Ginn Well, at least Black Flag got the last half of the song title right. Greg Ginn performs his solo like a sloppy drunk having sex, and, mercifully, he gets his act over quickly before his flaccid notes have the chance to penetrate deep enough to do damage. Even worse, Ginn tries to mimic Jimi Hendrix with his overextended bent-note screams but ends up sounding like someone trying to bend Jimmy Kimmel.
The guitarist claims Black Flag practiced about six hours every night. Keith Richards Keith Richards says he never understood why Mick Taylor left the Rolling Stones, but this horrendous, lurching and sputtering solo might have had something to do with his exit.
Was Taylor angry with Richards for ruining an otherwise decent cover of a Motown classic? Was he too proud to beg to play the solo himself?
Or was he just plain tired of playing with a group he considered rank amateurs? I often wondered how the Stones could make hit records. Joey DeMaio This manic, mindless masturbatory wankfest played on bass, which technically is a guitar becomes more unbearable when you consider that DeMaio most likely performed it clad only in a loincloth, his hairy chest abundantly oiled and puffed out with pride.
Sometimes it sounds like his woolly mammoth popped out to help him slap the strings. If songs could give out restraining orders, Kravitz would be forced to stay away from everything recorded between and Dave Mustaine and Marty Friedman The only risk Megadeth took on this album was the chance they might alienate their die-hard fans once and for all. No matter how hard Mustaine tried to sell this piece, no one was buying.
Jay Jay French Arnold Schwarzenegger made this glammetal anthem by a bunch of girlieman cross-dressers the theme song for his California gubernatorial campaign, using it as a torture device to force people to vote for him. What else could explain the way he stumbles over this familiar solo, not to mention several others throughout the show?
Michael Kelly Smith This C-list hair band tried to mix social commentary with sub- Slade screechiness, resulting in what may well be the worst metal power ballad ever. Or maybe they were just singing about themselves?
