Winger Guitarist Says Metallica Guitarist is One of the Worst Players EVER

Jeb Wright and Jesse Lee of Classic Rock Revisted recently interviewed guitarist Reb Beach (Winger / Whitesnake) on their radio show, KACY 102.5.
When Beach was asked about how his playing has been compared to Metallica's Kirk Hammett, Beach went off by saying, "I don't know the guy [Hammett], 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."

The guitarist goes on to say, "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."

It seems like the disgust runs deeper than just Hammett's playing, Beach continued his rant by saying, "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."
