Best Members of Guns N' Rosesrock2metal From the very original members to the actual members in GN'R, who is the best?
The Top Ten
Slash is so cool best guitarists with or without Guns n roses he still rocks. Maby in the future he will reunite with Axl Rose - Slashrocks
PHEW slash, axl, duff, steven and izzy are the best members of guns n roses. slash and izzy and duff and steven are hot as hell. don't know axl though. sorry to make girls angry. I am not gay
slash is the best... miss the old Guns n'roses. Now it's just roses withouth the Guns : Slash, Izzy, Duff, and Matt/Steven (where both awesome) so the real Guns 'n roses is death, only the name is left. R.I.P guns 'n roses
Slash was the MOST SUCCESSFUL member after the split! Not sure what the others voting for Axl are smoking but Slash made several songs with other stars, including Michael Jackson and if you'd seen them in concert, you'd understand that without Slash, Guns N Roses wouldn't have gone anywhere..Just saw them in concert..he made the show.V 19 Comments
O come on people. Without Slash the show was effected, without Axl there WAS NO SHOW! Its why Axl still fills stadiums today while Slash only plays before mediocre crowds. Axl has been most successful since the split, And is the only reason that Guns N' Roses albums have made history by being the only old album along with a whitney houston album, to outsell the new albums! Axl Rocks! He is God!
No one is a greater singer than Axl. Slash may have made most of the iconic solos of the band, but Axl was the true heart and soul of the band. He knew which songs would turn out to be good and would be successful on the music charts. That, along with vocal range truly defined the phenomenon that's Guns n' Roses
Axl Rose wrote the most beautiful songs for the band, not Slash. Don't confuse playing the guitar and flaunting masterful solos with the art of making emotionally powerful and great songs. A song is not just guitar. Rose gave a song everything that Slash could not give.
Funded the band. Gave them those unique vocals and writing style.V 53 Comments
A lot of writing stuff comes from Izzy... When he left, the only record Guns N' Roses made was an album full of covers... Izzy, I think, was a big inspiration and great composer for the band.. He's so underrated
Izzy is just as good as a guitarist as Slash. My two favorite Guns N' Roses songs are My Michelle and Mr. Brownstone, Izzy wrote the music for My Michelle, also Slash and Izzy wrote the music and lyrics together for Mr. Brownstone. This has nothing to do with the music, but he is definitely the hottest member.
I think slash and izzy are fantastic guitarists. izzy and slash are hot as hell
He was the best song writer in the band and was just as important to Guns N' Roses as SlashV 11 Comments
The glue that held these guys together. Without him, there would be no guns. He introduced the parties of axl and izzy to steven and slash! Also, his bass style was highly influential and badass. A funky pick player with some killer tone. Also, a great songwriter. "So Fine," anybody?
Duff is good at everything...he plays drums, bass, guitar, and sings. He also writes (I LOVE "So Fine"). He's also a nice guy (guess he balanced Axl then), intelligent, and very hot! Also, he was a major orchestrator of the reunion tour.
My inspiration to play bass.
GO BASSISTS I respect anyone who plays bass. Such an underrated instrument...V 8 Comments
Steven Adler made all the happiness in their music, his drumming are maybe not technically the best, but he is playing with so much power, love it m/
Look at him when they are playing at the ritz in 1988, he is the happiest man on stage ever!
He was and still is GREAT, all you have to do is look at Live at the Ritz in 88. Simply amazing
Steven has rhythm and a certain "wow" that you just don't see in many other drummers, but the greats.
Always happy always great sometimes high adler appetite are average because he is awesommeV 5 Comments
He is the best guitarist of all time, so best member yes. However I love Slash too, if he stayed for the Chinese Democracy album it would be pure hold, however it is still amazing as it is!
Crap, I forgot Buckethead and voted for Slash. I'm SO SORRY BUCKETHEAD!
Seriously surprised how no one has heard of this guy.
Amazing player, so much feeling and criativity, the man can play anything, any stiles, anywhere. Ever wondered wow CD would sound just with him and Fortus (whithout Finck's industrial Rock) it will be pure gold.V 2 Comments
Very underrated Guitarist. Does a great job. I like the industiral sound he brought to guns nr oses and the solos in Chinese democracy album are insane but not as good as slash - BillGross97
He looks like a Slash sellout but MORE tattoos
Fortus doesn't play guitar, he makes love to it.
Richard Fortus is an amazing guitarist, no doubt about it. He's almost as good as Slash.
He looks so much like Stradlin! I couldn't tell the difference!
His last name is punned onto the band name
Come on gilby clarke is amazing I know he isn't best member but deserves to be top 10
