Alexi is overrated.
He writes music that next to Petrucci's is simple since Petrucci knows a lot and at guitar skills....petrucci still owns him sick.
So yeah,alexi was messing with someone on a level too high for him

What exactly did he say that wasent true? I mean yeah he didnt puit it in a nice way but most DT fan's except for the ub3r hardcore fan's cant listen to them like they could to sinergy or bodom, for half as long as being technically great doesent make great music, sometimes you need in your face metal, DT is a "Thinking Man's" music wheres Bodom are straight up ass kicking metal.

All these peopel being so shocked at what alexi said, look who's wiht him on that interview Zakk Wylde, now there is one guy who spews a lot of stuff yet no one is attacking him.

It's liike if someone attacked Hammet for not being that great, people would be outraged and go metallica own j00 blah blah kirk wrote great solo's blah blah etc.

I think the late Robin Crosby said you can play a solo till you're blue in the face but thats never sold a Great Hit, or words to that extent.

Petrucci may own alexi in terms of skill and technical abillity but Alexi is 10 r so years younger, and isnt in the same genre.

Petrucci is being really technical for the sake of being technical.

I think Laiho owns total face. Pertucci can do all technical shit, but technicality isnt everything. Pertucci is great, but i think when it comes to being better (better: Style, Skill, PWNAG3) Laiho wins (in my opinion ofcourse).

Both are really great guitarists but I am not a fan of Dream Theater or a huge fan of Children Of Bodom. Petrucci is all about playing the exact notes and live he has no room for improvise or experiment. It's all "It has to be perfect." Alexi likes to have fun and improvise. If he hits a wrong note who really cares? That is what he tried to say in the interview saying that no one likes to improvise or have fun it's all it must be perfect. Like Dream Theater. I mean they are great players but there is a thing as too perfect.

i did not deny that petrucci was a better technical guitar player. he is. that doesnt make him better to listen to, unless youre the type that listens for musical skill instead of emotional impact. you either put on music to hear some tunes or to be impressed by technicality. thats where the difference in petrucci/laiho fans is. it doesnt really matter either way. petrucci hits all the notes live, fine. he doesnt sing, however, and doesnt have much stage prescence. laiho runs all around stage and screws up all the time. which do you prefer?

Petrucci is almost twice as old as Alexi...

Plus Petrucci went to Berkley.

Ever hear Liquid Tension Experiment? They improvise live all the time.

You must not have heard much DT, Alexi's playing is far from emotional.

Neither is better, Petrucci is far more acomplished.. and hes also twice the age of Alexi. Stupid argument.

Yeah they're known for their crazy ass rhythm playing, they put a lot of the Death metal guitarists to sleep for that.

ive heard LTE...wasnt impressed. im not just disliking it to be contradictory, either.

and some of alexi's solos are emotional. angels dont kill, chokehold, everytime i die...

btw, i didnt mean sad sounding. i meant, evoke an emotion when you hear em

Well maybe my opinion doensn't count much but cause i am considering myself a
classical guitarist rather electric one (hail to opeth) and having heard anything from both(almost) these 2 guitarist IMHO i can tell petrucci is on a different level in both terms of technic and song writing.Ok i understand it a personal matter whether it is saying something to you with his playing but you cannot judge so complcated composition with a single audition of an album or something.Every time you listening to it something new is revealed this is what i admire in a guitarist and this is what it makes a great guitarist.It is like saying you heard once bach in guitar and you didn't like it.You have to look deeper in some things in order to appreciate them.Off course alexi is a good guitarist but in both skills and composition he is doing rather childish stuff (although i like children of the bodom too).

Petrucci was better than Alexi before he was Alexi's age. I don't mean technical only. No, I'm not a hardcore DT fan I happen to listen to deathmetal. I just give respect where it's due, Alexi hasn't earned any.
I've seen both live and JP owns. COB were one of the worst signed bands I've seen, talk about a snore fest. That guy needs to take some lessons.

I'll take flamings towards any bands, cuz everyone has their own opinions, but that was the most retarded thing I've ever heard. Not only were those all your opinions, but not one of it is true, seriously it isn't. And I'm gonna explain it just so I don't have to write another post to explain it to you. There's like a million Alexi wannabes and shit learning his songs and his licks, and you say he hasn't earned any respect. Maybe it was a snore fest to you, but with the videos I watch from them, and having actually been to one of their shows, it isn't a snore fest, the crowd always went fucking crazy. And I don't know how the hell you can say he needs lessons when he's like 25 (I know, there's more insane people, but) and he's written some of the most exciting and challenging shit. And I'm not saying any of this cuz I like COB.
