    Eddie Van Halen isn't one of the favorites of the musicians? G3 Line-ups

    Hi there!
    In a recent article organized by Imhotepzine (Norway), more than 200 guitarists choose their very own G3 Line-Ups. I thought it pretty strange to don't have Eddie Van Halen mentioned more times. The question to the musicians was:

    "If you could start a project like the G3... besides you, mention two guitarists that you would like to share the stage with: "

    Clicking the link below you have all the artists featured, including Andy Timmons, Brett Garsed, Bruce Kulick, Emppu (Nightwish), Erik Turner, Gilby Clarke, Jennifer Batten, Jeff Watson, Marty Friedman, Leslie West, Mattias IA Eklundh, Michael Schenker, Mick Box, Scott McGill, Silenoz (Dimmu Borgir), among others...

    There are few guys mentioning Eddie.

    Painergrey,

    Welcome to the boards! Ah, those no-talent hacks don't know crap about guitar

    Nah, seriously, Eddie just isn't as popular in Europe. I did think it was funny how so many guitarists were saying Michael Schenker and then Michael Schenker said Eddie Van Halen. That should tell you his status riiight there.

    According to Satriani, EVH has turned the G3 down a few times. Don't sweat it--as long as he's #1 to you that's all that matters. I'd think you'd have a lot of backup on this board.
    How open-minded do I have to be before my brains start spilling out?

    I think all of us would agree that it would be very awesome to see Ed go on tour with satch and maybe Vai. Those 3 put together would go god-like and would be one hell of a DVD.

    Every time I have seen Ed on stage at a benefit or other special concert with another top tier guitarist he seems insecure. We all know he shouldn't feel that way, but Ed himself admits he is shy and has an inferiority complex. I think something like G3 actually scares him deep down.
