So you think the riff in that song (which I had the misfortune of hearing on their website) is better than the one in Black Dog?

PS: Who on this board doesn't have a shitty self-righteous opinion?

I don't give a fuck about who has better riffs. My mom could beat up your mom. Steve Howe looks like a skeleton with a big forehead.

It's Voodoo Child (Slight Return).

Voodoo Chile is the 15 minute psychedelic blues jam that precedes it on the album.

I agree on the whole with the list but not with this for number one. Apparently Slash doesn't even like it.
