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.

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.

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

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?

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

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..
