Eddie, just because he could play faster. But I don't really enjoy Van Halen.

comparing jimmy and eddie is like comparing picasso to the homeless man down the street that draws chalk pictures on the sidewalk... both are devoted artists, but there can be only one Jimmy Page...

On a technical level, they're both good. But Page has got this... something... that Van Halen doesn't have. In the videos I've seen of him, his guitar is in extension of his body and soul. Van Halen, while technically good, doesn't seem to have Page's passion. And I just prefer Zeppelin by a longshot.

eddie cant match his passion or artistic ability, come on, no matter how fast van halen plays, he cant match the beauty of some of page's rifs...

Eddie VanHalen is near the top of my favorite guitar players list along with Stevie Ray Vaughn(rip), Ted Nugent and Peter Frampton.

Today's Eddie's birthday...

Jimmy was obviously the better guitar player, Eddie was fast though and "Eruption" will just blow your mind.

So I can't pick! I'll pick Eddie, just because its his birthday... ;)

Pre- collaboration with Puffy Daddy Jimmy Page > Van Halen

Post- collaboration with Puff Daddy Jimmy Page < Van Halen

I'd pick Jimmy Page over anyone. Even though it nearly killed me when I saw him perform with Fred Durst.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Thursday 1/27/05 - 1:06:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
^See, I didn't even know about that..

Post- collaboration with Fred Durst Jimmy Page very < Van Halen

Eddie Van Halen is much more appealing to me. Perhaps it is because he has worked with lead singers who didn't sound as if they were having their nuts stepped on all the time.

Jimmy Page. But Eric Clapton's my favorite.
