Odd pairing, sorry. Especially when it comes to body of work. Both beloved though. Just try to think which one you like more.

This is very difficult because they’re both two of my all time favorites. But when it comes down to it... Randy’s talent was limitless. If he didn’t die, who knows how much greater he would have become. He already was a master at age 25. But don’t get me wrong... Eddie is a pioneer and one of the greatest and most Influential players of all time!

I love Eddie's playing. But I like Randy better overall.

Sorry Randy, but you must understand.



Hearing Eddie live flattens people.

Eddie. He was/is just so unique. Often imitated, never equaled.

Who knows what Randy may have done, tough basing it solely on those 2 Ozzy albums.

EVH, as he was the reason I love the sound of electric guitar.

I'm going to go with Randy, even though Eddie has a larger resume. He's Rob Cavestany's guitar hero, so that's good enough for me. This was the most difficult of all the guitarist polls for myself

Eddie Van Halen. I never quite got the love for Rhoads. Certainly a great player but not to the extent that he's revered.

Not sure how this is even a contest.  Much less why RR is winning.  I got one thing to say to those voters on Randy's side.....  We will watch the children pray for you....




Yet, I withhold. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. But a dozen absolute guitar genius albums over 2? Wanna get real on this?

I went EVH. When Van Halen s/t first came out (I think I was 5 th or 6th grade, so still young and only been listening a couple years) when I first heard it I didn’t know what to think. I loved it but it was a new sound altogether. When blizzard came out I loved it, but it hadn’t started a new sound. So for that I go Eddie.

Could EVH compose a solo remotely as epic as Mr Crowley? I doubt it...

But Randy could’ve (and probably did) play pretty much anything Eddie did. Randy was a master. He understood theory and had a progressive interest in the guitar. If Eddie died after the first two VH albums, I think people would see how great Randy was in comparison. But Eddie has a much bigger body of work. When it comes down to it, Eddie’s main claim to fame is his technique and popularizing of “tapping”. Randy was one of the first to fuse classical elements into a heavy metal context.

That said... I still love and admire Eddie’s music. He’ll always be one of the best!

What’s the matter Sax? It’s just my opinion.

I voted Randy because he wrote some of the best solos ever.

I never liked Van Halen to be honest. Tried to, but it just didn't work.
