        In a head-cutting contest, Ed would get a knockdown in the first round, and Jimi would get an eight count. But Jimi would get back up, shake it off, and Ed wouldn't have much left for a long fight. Jimi wins by unanimous decision.

            Two massively influential players, and two incredible innovators.

            Not to detract from any of EVH's accomplishments, Jimi wins.

                  I picked Eddie. But given the option, I'd rather listen to Jimi any day...

                    Jimi hands down. EVH was rad but could never tell a story on guitar like Jimi did. For Example Machine Gun.

                      This. Ed can do FUN stuff. Jimi could jam or hours and show just about any emotion a person could feel.

                        I think it might help to distinguish between lead and rhythm playing in this thread also. Eddie's riffs and rhythm playing are highly underrated.

                          Hendrix.

                          As others have mentioned, EVH is a monster player who wrote some awesome music in his day, but Jimi was the total package- songwriter, player, singer, frontman. He was one of the best ever at all of it, too. Eddie is one in a billion, Jimi was one of a kind.
                          Arrangements? How about I hit on two and four, and you shut the **************** up?

                            Jimi's music has stood the test of time. Nowadays I dig his cleanish chordal 'Curtis Mayfield from Mars' stuff the most. Songs like Little Wing, Castles Made of Sand, Think We better Wait til Tomorrow, All Along the Watchtower etc. My favorite Jimi track is '1983 A Merman I shall Be..', Jimi's Sci-Fi masterpiece from Electric Ladyland. Electric Ladyland is also my favorite Jimi album, so much depth. Eddie's style seems real gimmicky to my ears nowadays. Definitely the Godfather of Shred. I NEVER listen to him. Back in the day though, he turned everything around and had a million impersonators, myself included. You couldn't work if you couldn't cop some of Ed's tricks.. EVH's songs don't have a lot of depth, albeit they're fun, party tunes. I always felt he and the band peaked after the first two albums. The licks and songs started to sound familiar after those first two, although they had their moments on every album. I can see a big generation split over these two.

                              Jimi Hendrix would light his ass on fire and then smash him to pieces.

                              I don't like Van Halen at all. I respect what he did though, and if others like him, I can understand why.

                              Eddie's definitely not my cup of tea, while Jimi's my tea, coffee, and everything in between.
