Both are amazing players in a technical sense but I can't listen to a Steve Vai Record for more than a few minutes Without saying OK, You can turn it off now. As for as Becker. I am not very familiar with his work.

vai.... passion and warfare is easily my favorite guitar instrumental cd, and I have a lot of them.

it's too bad that the only other work he did like this is alien love secrets and that was just a long EP.

I do not care for his stuff with vocals.

I do not care for much of anything becker did.

No competition. Steve Vai. ( Although ALL his solo material since Passion and Warfare is worse then anything I have ever heard on guitar.)

Steve Vai is much better. Hell he has had to fill the shoes of EVH and Malmsteen

In my opinion, Steve's playing on Eat Em & Smile is second to none, when it comes to pure simple rock and roll guitar playing. That's him, plugged right into a Marshall or Carvin head and ripping plain & simple. Becker is great, but anything he did with Roth was basically a facsimile of what Vai was doing.
