    UYI 1 & 2 are the best. November Rain is possibly the greatest rock song of all time.

      Plus I'd like to see Kirk play Paradise City

      If you think he can't play as fast as Hammet, I'd have to disagree. What about that solo to Paradise City, like Forbidden mentioned? He plays that fast as hell. I'd name others but don't have the cd's right with me so that I could pick the really quick solos.

        I think Axl's voice made the band too, no Axl, no GNR.

        Definitely. Axl defined that band's vocals, but I don't see any one of them alone defining the band. Without Slash, Axl's nothing, without Axl....well, Slash has been productive and is still at the top of his game. Axl was definitely the anchor that pulled the band down, I think that the band would never have made it without him, but would still be together if he wasn't a psycho.

            I think that Axl's psychotic outbursts are definitely part of GnR's charm. I've got a vid on my laptop of him bitching out a fan in the crowd for shouting something at him. It's hilarious. Axl being a bona fide nut, Steven Tyler passing out onstage, Led Zep throwing a TV in the pool, Slash holding the record for passing out more than anyone, that's the **************** that I think helps define a band or artist's personality. BTW, I hate Sammy Hagar era Van Halen. I just wish Axl's personality hadn't caused the band to self destruct. It's a fine line you walk, but you don't want the shenanigans to get predictable either.....**************** it whatever.

              No contest in my opinion,never heard a GnR song come close to even the oldest Metallica song I've heard (Hit the Lights with Dave Mustaine).

              Slash plays slower than Hammet but I don't think that makes him better,bringing melody to a solo in a song at 220BPM (Master of Puppets)isn't something alot of guitarists could pull off.

              And to those who keep posting that Kirk Hammet is gay,why are you so interested in his sex life?I don't think he's gay but who cares anyway?

              You must've never heard Welcome to the Jungle, Paradise City, Sweet Child o' Mine, It's So Easy, Bad Obsession, Back Off Bitch, Dust n' Bones, Perfect Crime, November Rain, ESTRANGED!!!, Coma, Civil War, Double Talkin' Jive, or Garden of Eden.

                    Sorry, forgot that one.

                      Kirk could play the Paradise City double time solo in alternate cycle 6,it's mostly 8ths and triplets.

                              I would love to hear you play the entire Master of Puppets album at speed... oh yeah, and sing it at the same time.

                              Sence its so easy and all.

                              • I have no idea how people can say GnR is better than Metallica.

                                Hetfield is 10x the frontman Rose is. Rose just acts cocky and **************** in typical cock-rock strut fashion - James gets the crowd going like no other.

                                Slash is a decent guitarist but his riffs are pedestrian at best - and with all the talk about Kirk abusing the wah pedal, Slash does it many times over. Slash's solos are slow, basic, and sloppy. Kirk's are fast, memorable, and tight (at least on record).

                                Axl is also 10x the **************************** Lars is on his worst day.

                                Metallica has better songs, better members, better everything.
