    Ok, hear me out here a little:
    I was just thinking this last nigth, Don't you here feel that we can honestly say for sure, that there's no one in this world that can deny that EVH,is,was,will,still,and forever be the GREATEST rock guitar player in the world.
    I think so. Let's face it Eddie,has no competition...none what so ever. Not only does EVH hasn't anyone else to compete against. But no one alive can hold a candle up against Eddie.
    Just my thougth.
    If you think that I'm wrong...Bring it on!!! [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]
    Do you think we migth still have to wait anyway?

    The only problem lies in style differences. Like you can't compare the New York Yankees to the Montreal Canadians. Both have won more titles than anyone in their respective sports, but how do you compare them head to head?

    So while I definitely think Eddie is the greatest rock guitarist, I would qualify it slightly by saying that there are other guitarists of other styles that are amazing too.

    It's funny, I also frequent a KISS message board [img]smilies/redface.gif[/img] and it never ceases to amaze me when someone mentions EVH, everybody jumps in and says that Ace Frehley is a way better guitarist than Eddie. To me, they're delusional, but that's opinions for you, and I'm not going to waste too much energy debating the point.

    Depends on your taste, but Ace Freely! That is bullshit IMO! I personally think Eddie is easily the best, but it's just my opinion.
    I am awesome

    It's not for arguement, I need a couple of die hard EVH fans to put the final statement and the final period on a on going dabate, that for years have bothered me. Nobody can compare greatness and virtuosity with rip off wannabe's like there were back in the late '80's and early '90's.
    Eddie was years ahead and problably still is.
    You have to look no farther than VH1 Where are they now!, to find were the rest of the Hair metal EVH ripoff are now.

    ed is king of guitar in this genre of music and has had a huge influence in the way the instrument is played. however, surely you are not that one-eyed you would say he is the best ever!!!!!!!! i think those that know the smallest thing about the guitar, realise that ed is number two and will always be. no disrespect intended.

    As far as the rock/metal guitarist world goes, Eddie is indeed

    None taken.
    But I'd never said
    best ever,just the greatest in our time. And yes he is number two, but number one is dead, so by default Eddie is numero uno in my book [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

    Its all a conflict of opinion as usual. But those in "the know", know that no one was, is, or will ever be as good as the one and the only Edward Van Halen. Once in a lifetime thing folks...Eddie, damn dude, you rock!!!
    WHOAOH! Hey you! Who said that? Baby how you been?
