Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash had a long interview with Spanish VOS’ Diego Tabachnik and revealed his all-time favorite riffs.
Slash said that there are many riffs that he can count but he didn’t want to choose any of his.
“I confess that when I was 12 years old and I first heard the intro of Sweet Child O’Mine, the guitar intro blew my mind. What is your favorite riff, both yours and others?”
“I would not be able to choose any of mine, it’s not possible. But others riff … (thinks), there are many! I remember the Stones’ Gimme Shelter that had a big effect on me when I was very small, Whole lotta love was another one, from Zeppelin, Foxy Lady and Purple Haze from Hendrix.
And over the years there were always riffs that I think are amazing fuckin ‘. Back in the saddle and Walk This Way from Aerosmith, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath from Black Sabbath has that little section in the middle that I always thought was one of the coolest things there was … there’s another Jack White riff that came out some years and I think it’s great, although I do not remember the name. I could name you guitar riffs for days!“
