Eddie started it.

Nobody can copy that.

 

Everybody who came after EVH had a head start - learn how to play all Eddie's stuff!

Copying is easier than setting the guitar world on its head.

 

That being said, EVH is a trained multi-instrumental musician, Vai is a trained guitarist.

Much different focus.

 

Don't know why I'm posting here really - I'm not that big a fan of either one.

Give me a million notes a minute, or one good note.

I'll take the blues every time.

To administer a little dose of truth and reality, that's my specialty.

 

[lol]/

 

Are you old enough to remember rock n roll before Eddie Van Halen?

Did you see first-hand the effect his playing had on the world?

 

I am.

 

Saw Vai coming down the pike with all the other shredding/tapping posers.

He was one of the few that actually had the talent to stay in the business without hype and bullsh!t.

 

I'd like to think I'm objective, being an eyewitness and all...

 

To call Vai a copycat isn't fair to him either, he is indeed a talented player.

And he was playing killer guitar when EVH had gone to the Dark Side of keyboards and synths.

Eddie invented a style of guitar playing, wore orange jumpsuits, plays in a rock n roll band WITH A SINGER(!!!) and is generally the man.

 

Steve plays lame instrumental rock, probably has "daddy issues" and plays an ibanez

 

Listen to Cathedral or Spanish fly and tell me who sh*ts on who
