    Since we have the other two topics w/VH members vs. Rush members. We might as well do all three.

    I'll take EVH on this one. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Definitely Edward! Though, I do like Lifeson's rhythm/lead style. He's quite good but he's no Eddie!

    That was cool , it`s nice to see some humor in a somewhat serious band . Oh the easy winner is EVH , Alex is great though
    You may think I`m being mean but I`m really just being sarcastic

    I think Alex is very underrated, but EVH is the king.

    Dissenting opinion coming...

    EVH wins in terms of sheer speed, but that's about it. Lifeson is a far more diverse player, his style is far more textured and atmospheric than Van Halen's, and the music he writes is simply more interesting.

    Alex is my man!

    Peace,
    Ron

    I would love to see the two of them jam together. Both are great technical guitarists and a Jam would be "the bomb" as the young-ins say.
    But Edward is the best ever.

    Lifeson couldn't even be Eddie's guitar tech.

    They are my 2 biggest influences.
    I think lifeson is probably more
    versatile, but ed's on par w/
    Page/Hendrix in terms of innovation
    and overall vision.

    It's Classic Eddie, but Alex Lifeson is a hell of a guitarist!

    You are out of your goddamned mind! I'll give Eddie the nod here, definitely. But Alex Lifeson is easily in the top ten of rock guitarists. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
