    Eddie has always been the reason I play, but here are my Top 5.

    1. Eddie VH
    2. Slash (Yes I did like his playing years ago)
    3. Stevie Ray Vaughan
    4. Angus Young (Don't care much for his playing, but took some ideas from him actually)
    5. Randy Rhoads (More admiration than anything)
