who does Alex Laiho think he is.
 
hey

i was on another forum and i came across this message from someone
below is the message.

I was reading the new guitar Magazine when I read Alex Laiho say that "Some guitar players play super fast, and super well, but they are still super lame, like Dream Theater." What a jerk, when I first looked at the new Guitar Mag I thought, who is that wanna be chick rocker with Vai and Wylde?

JB

is this true that he really is an ignorant f**k
now dont get me wrong i think he is a fu***n amazing guitarist
but to say that well thats just dam right rude.
john petrucci is kick ass. :eek:

Petrucci has been quoted saying a lot dumber shit than that. ;)

Old news dude.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure he just meant that guys like that can get boring to listen to. Sure, petrucci is an amazing guitarist, but I can only take his music in small doses.

garr1 2005-04-07 12:38

if i'd known it was old news i wouldnt of posted it would i. :(

Necro_Butcher 2005-04-07 13:39

i read that interveiw and it was kickass

obrien20 2005-04-07 14:24

anyway, Laiho sucks compared to Petrucci.

Transient 2005-04-07 15:30

yes, its a real quote. and alexi dominates petrucci, i agree with him completely. petrucci owns me with technical skill, but is obnoxious and arrogant. par for the course with prog metal though

garr1 2005-04-07 15:59

We are talking Alex Laiho right?

DEAD 2005-04-07 16:43

Jphn has teh right to be an arrogant douche, unlike people like Laiho and Malmsteem. Some people are good enough that they DO have rooim to talk unlike most people. I wish jason Becker was an arrogant fuck because seriously, who was going to come and show him up?

BlackRoseImmortal 2005-04-07 17:08

Dream Theater kind of suck, but not as much as Children of Bodom. Dream Theater suck due to LaBrie, not Petrucci, whereas CoB suck due to Alexi.
John Petrucci solos > Alexi Laiho solos

Transient 2005-04-07 18:08

personal preference guys. im lucky i dont have to listen to your snore fest dream theater cds

and steve you dont own a single DT cd nor can you even name a song i bet.... i dont know why youre trying to stir everyone up

I do not have a Dream Theater album, but I have heard much of it, and Petrucci is like 13 and a half times faster that Alexi. Saying he's a better guitarist that Alexi of course is opinion, but Petrucci is much more technical, thats a fact. I do like Alexi's playing more, but Petrucci is faster.

Yes, But speed isent everything.

Petrucci is by far a more accomplished guitarist.. but Alexi's only in his mid 20's..
