Slash's National Anthem -- A Real Icebreaker

10/13/2010 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Slash strapped up and strung out last night during the L.A. Kings game -- ripping one of the most incredible renditions of "The Star-Spangled Banner" we've ever heard.

Slash National Anthem

Must have worked too -- because the Kings thrashed Atlanta 3-1 at the Staples Center.

It was OK. Definitely not the best ever. #1 is right, Hendrix is better.

BTW: Kings won 3-1. Get the facts straight.

"ripping one of the most " ONE OF THE MOST.....

We all know Hendrix did it first and his version is the best... Slash puts the rest to shame...

I think everyone but TMZ realizes that it was clearly based off of Hendrix's Woodstock performance. I'm sure Slash knew everyone would realize it was a cover/homage, although he didn't count on the ignorance of TMZ staffers.

It would have been nice if the view was from the front so we could watch him play in addition to hearing it. It's almost pointless to watch him doing what he does without showing what he's doing.

As a guitarist, I don't understand how this was the most amazing ever? Have you ever heard of Jimi Hendrix or Zakk Wylde. He play just the notes of the song with no flourish. Anyone who knows how to read tab could play that. All I saw, was a good performance, with the most basic of playing, and disrespect with a top hat. That's what I see.
