Reb Beach states that Kirk Hammett is one of the worst guitar players ever

In an interview with Classic Rock, Reb Beach was asked about his comparissons to Metallica’s Kirk Hammett and the title says it all.

“I don’t know the guy [Kirk], but I think he’s one of the worst guitar players I’ve ever heard in my life. I’ve never heard a solo from that guy that was any good. . . This guy is out of tune, and his vibration… what is it? Vibrato. Oh my god. It sounds like a beginner.”

He continued, “Back in the ’80s, he was always voted best guitar player, and I’m like, ‘What?! That guy is terrible.’

“I hate to say that because I might meet him one day.

“What’s he play in? Megadeth? Metallica? Is he in Metallica? Oh, then I have no problem doing that because in their biggest video, ‘Nothing Else Matters’, when they threw darts at a poster of Kip Winger, and then they showed it live — 20,000 people every night laughing at Winger — I don’t mind saying that Kirk Hammett sucks.”

Thanks to Blabbermouth for the text of the interview.
