    I'd say Dweezil, satch or vai, but probably vai just because of the history. .....actually, that would be pretty cool.

    WTF, Cock?

    Man, this is stupid. If Eddie left the band, it wouldn't be Van Halen.

    I disagree - if the singer's replacable, so's the guitarist. Heck, the Allman Brothers have only had one Allman Brother for a long time (R.I.P. Duane).
    But I can't think of a guitarist I'd rather see than Ed. Certainly not Vai.

    Yes, I was waiting for one of those reactions from someone(ala Stuffy's)...

    You know the Allman brothers only have three original members left in the band out of seven I believe, and I think Lynyrd Skynyrd only have two out of seven also...

    Hell look at Guns N Poses, only Axl is left, what a joke............................If Dave who co-wrote every pre-1986 song with Ed is replaceable, then why not Ed?


    And there are a ton of bands that have replaced guitar players when they needed to, look at Deep Purple, many would consider it Ritchie Blackmore's group, but he hasn't been with them for what 5,6,7 years???more??? Although Steve Morse is a smoking replacement....


    What about John Petrucci???

    Now, it WAS you who just stated in a thread the other day that you thought these polls were a stupid waste of time, right?

    Well... seeing as you've apparently changed your mind, I'll play along.

    Just considering comparable styles, not to mention a nice, heaping slab of irony, why not Nuno Bettencourt? VERY big Ed influence, incredible soloist, and a very underrated songwriter. Plus, with both hands on the guitar, he can't "finger his own ass"!
