Randy Rhoads was as good, maybe better that VH, but VH did it first, so he gets my vote.

wow...

that is the hardest poll i've ever taken in my life. GOOD POLL

I adore both EVH and Rhoads. Their impact and influence on metal is uncomparable because it would be so close to call. I chose Van Halen I although I'll feel like voting Blizzard of Ozz the next time I see this thread.

I mean...they came from the same high school.

isnt there a no versus thread rule?

not to be a dick.
Either way, randy was a much better player then eddie, and Ozzy a much better songwriter. But noone can compare to Diamond Dave.

Randy was a better player methinks, but Eddie has the brown sound, i know he isnt the cleanest player in the world, but its his attack and his tone that smacks you in the face, so Eddie wins. I also think Eddie looks a lot cooler when playing, and he had a frankenstien guitar, the guy rules basically.

if you want to consider randy rhoads' work as neoclassical, then the "first" neoclassical guitarist would have to be Ritchie Blackmore as the very first.

back to the thread, I guess EVH had a more widespread impact on guitar players, but I hold Randy above Eddie 'cos he wrote better songs IMO - great metal classics

Evil_Empire24-7
11-05-2005, 09:47 PM
^not all virtuosos are neo-classic, tell me some work for ritchie in the neo-classical genre.

when the **** did I say Blackmore was a guitar virtuoso or that all virtuosos play in the neoclassical style? learn to read.

Yngwie's playing is a spin off from a school that Blackmore developed though Yngwie obviously went deep into the classical roots, but a lot of Purple's songs had classical cadences and movements and his soloing though rooted a lot in blues, used altered forms of the minor pentatonic scales and harmonic minor forms profusely in his soloing, and he's one of the first guys in rock guitar to profusely use arpeggios which lent his guitar work the classical touch - if you consider Randy Rhoads as a proponent of neoclassical guitar playing, he isn't the first then, Blackmore is. I personally tend to think that all these guys incorporated classical styles in their playing - Yngwie actually made a genre out of it. "Rising Force" is the bible for neoclassical shred guitar.

I like R.R better than EVH but I like Van Halen I better than Blizzard of Ozz.

EVH set the standard's the the 80's rock n' roll scene. In the 80's everyone had their own custom axe, like EVH, everyone went for humbuckers, and such. If it weren't for Eruption, there wouldn't be a Crazy Train solo. Sure, randy was an amazing player, but Van Halen is obviously more influencial

As my name suggests, I say go with Blizzard Of Ozz.

Umm... No he wasn't the first neoclassical guitarist.

And dare I say, EVH influenced a whole lot more people.

I personally like Randy more than EVH - although you cant ignore the latter's position in guitar history.

i really like rhoads more then halen but halen did it first and i think rhoads got influenced by halen for the blizzard album. so my vote goes to halen but rhoads was the better player in my opinion.

No doubt that Van Halen was one of the most important albums ever released. Randy's work is much more powerful on tribute than on Blizzard imo. VH wins.

BTW Randy was not the first neo classical guitarist. That was most likely Ritchie Blackmore who has studied classical music, which can be heard in many of his solo's. Blackmore influenced many players such as Rhoades and Malmsteen (sp).

Haha, id never call evh a great musician, ever.

He is a great guitar player but far from a musician (in my opinion at least).

I love Randy as much as the next guy...but Eddie took the electric guitar to new heights when that album came out...

It's a tough call but I gave it to Randy and specifically due to that solo on Crazy Train.
It's something only extremely rare guitarists can come up with.

I'll go with Randy cause he was a better composer and stylist

ferretman

Van Halen 1 was probably more influential but Blizzard of Ozz ruled and rocked so much harder.

Randy because of Mr. Crowley, I used to hate that song but after actually listening to the song I fell in love with it and it is now one of my favorite songs (trying to learn it at the moment to, so ****ing hard, anybody care to throw me some tips/advice please). Anyway I just love Randy's style so much more but EVH is just as good, they did grow up in the same place and stuff so they are very similar, Randy FTW. Sorry for the rant, peace.

Randy was in QR I and they relased 2 albums with randy in japan. i remember reading an interview that when randy talked to his mom about it she said she said it wasnt any good and randy got really mad. but she did like Blizzard. anyway i like randy rhoads better than eddie but thats just me. Diary of a madman is really good too.

rushman55

These are both 2 excellent albums but i would have to go with blizard of ozz because i personally like randy and ozzy better than eddie and David.

and when was eddie born 1955 or 1957 ?

I think Randy influenced more guitarist that Eddie, but Blizzard of ozz wasn't as influenctial for the 80's like Diary of a madman. That was a more popular sound.

I don't think that these guitarist should be compared. They really weren't the same style. Randy never really was a shredder. His only shredding solo was mr. crowley.
