    When I was in high school everyone wanted to play like Eddie Van Halen. I even bought a guitar and had to learn to play a couple songs. Who inspires the kids today? I don't see any young great guitar player out there that can even be compared to EVH.

    Right On!!! The smart ones are STILL inspired by people like Eddie. I know I was when I started back in high school. There are still good guitarists out there today such as Petrucci, Vai, Malmsteen, Macalpine, Michael Romeo, and Guilbert, but none of them are really in the main-streem. If the kids would look into alot of small label groups and progressive music and lay off the main-stream "bands", it would do them a world of good.

    crossing over is one of the smart ones

    I know someone as talented as EVH doesn't come along everyday, but it looks like there would be more out there, than it seems to be! I was just thinking there probably is, they just don't get the exposure. Which is sad. All we get to see is these talentless bands that have to spend millions of dollars on their videos, because they can't impress anyone with their music.
    Its hard to find good music these days. Its like hard work! Thankfully, we do still have our Van Halen.

    I'm 18 and I probably never would have picked up a guitar if it wasn't for Edward. The first album I ever heard was Balance and from then on I was hooked.

    Well Eds my hero too but I think young players are still influenced by Ed-Hendrix-Page-SRV-Clampton...These people are Icons and they will still be infulnceing young and old to pick up the guitar and play long after their gone...
