    Slash had auditioned for the role of guitarist in Poison and was a finalist for the job, but didn't get the gig, especially since he wasn't into the hair and makeup he'd have to wear as part of the group. C.C. DeVille got the gig and now, vocalist Bret Michaels revealed why.

    B. Mikes told a local newspaper, "Slash is one of my all-time favorite guitar players and I believe he would have steered our sound a little more in the Aerosmith direction." He said they chose C.C. since his style fit theirs.

    De Nada wrong with that.

    Who is your favorite guitarist?
