Adam Jones vs. Slash – Greatest Metal Guitarist, Round 2

Adam Jones / Slash
WWE / Mary Ouellette, shewillshootyou.com

The unorthodox nature of Adam Jones‘ guitar playing has elevated him to the highest of standings. Somehow able to inject a dose of every psychedelic element on the planet into his axe, Jones’ unmatched style allowed his victory over Machine Head’s Phil Demmel in Round 1. The Tool titan now faces perhaps the most iconic guitarist of the modern era in Round 2.

In what was actually a very close poll, Slash defeated one of metal’s fastest guitarists ever, Herman Li of Dragonforce. The top-hatted titan, who has meshed rock and metal styles since Guns N’ Roses‘ monster debut, ‘Appetite for Destruction,’ now advances to Round 2 thanks to his legendary chops, iconic discography and legions of followers.
