    Well, I don't really consider EVH a "metal" guitarist but, what the hell, I'll vote for him anyway.

    done! no contest imo
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    I'm sure if they asked both of these guys what they thought of each other, the conversation would go something like this....

    John Petrucci: Eddie Van Halen is the most influential and greatest guitarist ever!

    Eddie Van Halen: Who the fuck is John Petrucci?

    and of course I voted for Ed...

    Who's John Petrucci?

    And why is he even talked about in the same breath as Edward? Is he an innovator?

    I don't think this poll is going to turn out very well for Ed



    ultimately I hope Tony Iomni wins

    Yeah, best "metal" guitarist should go to Petrucci. He's definitely more technically skilled than Eddie as well, but while John has some inventive playing he'll never touch the innovation, songwriting or style of Mr. Edward Van Halen.

    John's up there on my list of favorite guitarists, but Ed's #1.

    I voted for Ed, but he is not really a metal guitarist at all.

    I voted for Ed even though the match up is a bit silly. Some of the other ones are just as relevant- Tony Iommi versus Synyster Gates, Zakk Wylde versus Angus Young. LOL Heck, why don't they throw Chet Atkins versus Jimmy Page in there while they're at it.

    I cringe when Ed is called a metal guitarist or VH is called a heavy metal band or even a hair band, but what are you going to do. At least VH is still being talked about in some manner.

    Chuck Norris wins because he is the only man who can finger pick "Eruption" and "When the Water Breaks"...

    Slash is in the "shredder region," while Malmsteen is in the "axe-slinger" region? LOL!!

    LMAO - Good one!

    However, you are aware that Chuck Norris' wedding song was Eruption...

    P.S. Voted for EVH of course
