Nita Strauss, the Alice Cooper guitarist and solo artist, leapt to the defense of those labelled solely as shredders, and said that one style should not be held inferior to any other. "You know, I think this shred stigma has been around for so long and I don't understand it," Strauss said. "Yngwie Malmsteen's three notes are no more or less valid than BB King's three notes. They're just three notes played differently, at different speeds, on different guitars, in different styles. It's always baffling to me when people say, 'That person is just a shredder.' It's just a stylistic preference. I never mind it. I take it as a compliment."
