Simple question: Of the three, and only of the three, who's the best? And explain.

Slash, Eddie, or Randy Rhoads?

And yes, I know Randy died.


Personally, I say EVH. He's good acoustically, he popularized the 2-handed tap, his use of the tremolo is innovative, his guitars are instantly recognizable, he can also play the piano, I've never heard anybody use harmonics like him, and his sound on the first Van Halen album is often imitated, never perfected.

randy, he was already one of the best guitarists of his time, but had he lived longer he would have been THE BEST ever.

Don't worry guys, he's just bitter because he has a small dick.

Randy, hands down. Van Halen was a pretty good guitarist, but his band was shit and I hated his riffs.
