Former GUNS N' ROSES star Slash has slammed the new generation of guitar players, insisting he is the last of the "identifiable" icons of rock 'n' roll. The legendary rocker is convinced having a decent guitar player who stands out is one of the main necessities for any band. But the 42-year-old is saddened by modern music as he feels new bands focus too much on the frontman and don't concentrate on finding good guitarists. He says, "It's sad. There's no identifiable guitar players in rock 'n' roll any more. With the exception of (White Stripes star) Jack White - who is great - the new breed of bands aren't bringing out decent guitarists. "Rock 'n' roll is so diluted in this millennium, you just don't hear good solos. And I hate emo (mainstream soft-core punk)."
Corgan took to Instagram to confirm rumours of new Pumpkins material, saying the first songs could arrive as early as May.
