tfresh: What debate?
Robert1966: tfresh: What debate? Whose wife did more damage to their career?There isn't really any debate about this, either, considering Valerie didn't ruin Eddie's opportunity to, you know, turn 56.
doczoidberg: Obviously, Eddie is an infinitely more talented guitarist. In fact, Cobain pretty much sucked at guitar.Still, Nirvana remains my all time favorite band.

theorellior: If Cobain hadn't had buckshot for breakfast one morning, he and the boys would be eating omelettes on a cruise ship with Marcy Playground and the Gin Blossoms right about now.
Funbags: /Cobain is outside the top 20//Van Halen is outside the top 100.
Funbags: From a virtuosity standpoint, Prince is first and its not even close./Cobain is outside the top 20//Van Halen is outside the top 100.///I dare any Farker to disagree that there are no fewer than 100 more skilled guitarists than Eddie Van Halen, who is in fact, a mediocre guitar player////Come on, out yourselves.
DS1970: I think I'm older than many FARKers. That PLUS being a guitarist myself, I would make the claim that Eddie is a very under-rated guitarist at this point. I remember well when VH1 came out...holy f*ck, Eddie turned the guitar world around!EV's problem as a guitarist was that he never really progressed as a guitarist - the first two VH albums showed Eddie at his best.Now you've got these great guitar soloists...Satch, Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, Tobin Abasi, John Petrucci, etc. - these guitarists are outstanding and are constantly innovating. Eddie never really did that, which is his downfall.Besides, any so-called "VanHalen" fan who hasn't heard the first two albums? WTF?! Just ignore anything VH did during or after the Hagar era.Cobain? I could teach any student his material and - allowing said student actually practices - within 30 days they could emulate his guitar.For some evidence of my claim, click on the link below and try to tell me this Vai tune (called "Building the Church" and performed live) isn't a guitar-players dream. It's expressive, soulful in its way, as well as being virtuoso in technique.Link
Funbags: From a virtuosity standpoint, Jeff Beck is first and its not even close.
ZoSo_the_Crowe: Funbags: From a virtuosity standpoint, Jeff Beck is first and its not even close.You know, I agree!
qsblues: ...keep in mind, EVH was 10 times the rhythm player than he was a soloist...
Eufah Kennidiets: Umm. no, unless your definition of "virtuosity" is rather narrow.
zinny: Debate? There's no debate.Zappa.

whither_apophis: the best/suck it haters
ZoSo_the_Crowe: Eufah Kennidiets: Umm. no, unless your definition of "virtuosity" is rather narrow.Ability to produce new, unique sounds. That's virtuosity as a musician, any instrument. Not how cleanly and quickly you can play.
Kyosuke: Dogfacedgod: Wow, the dip shiat who said prince is #1..you should get kicked in the ball sack (or vagina).Randy Rhoads...Nuno Bettencourt1. You've obviously never heard Prince play guitar.2. I hate seeing long lists like this and seeing that Mike Oldfield has been left off again.
