WHERE DO WE GO? To those of you who have followed me over here from A List A Day, I'd like to reassure you that just because I have a new blogdress, I'll still be doing that list thing you've come to love (along with commenting on other stuff without having to make half-hearted attempts to tie those posts into lists). And to those of you who have ignored the many links to my original blog from this blog because you hate lists, well, tough.
Anyway, on to the list thing, specifically the news erstwhile Guns N' Roses' guitarist Slash is responsible for the greatest guitar riff of all time, according to readers of the UK's Total Guitar magazine (tag line: The Revolution Will Be Amplified). Slash's ax work on GNR's meteorological opus "Sweet Child O' Mine" topped the list, followed by Nirvana's "Teen Spirit" and Led Zep's "Whole Lotta Love." There are some surprises in the top 20, mainly the inclusion of relatively uncannonized songs by Muse, Queens of the Stone Age, and Rage Against the Machine, which left no room for classics like "Satisfaction," "Blitzkrieg Bop," "Crimson and Clover," "Helter Skelter," and "Purple Haze."
