Tim Henman is overrated.

Doesn't mean he's not good.









Ok....maybe I need a better example?

Love him or hate him, Eddie is certainly in the top 5 rock guitarists all time. As others have mentioned, he came on the scene with a fairly unique style, and has spurned many imitators.
For the comment about him playing without soul, well I just saw him Saturday night and there seemed to be plenty. Now he doesn't play bluesy music which is often considered to have more soul, but watching and hearing him live, the man plays with a lot of soul and feel.
And its a joke that Van Halen the band was not a first time RnR Hall of Fame inductee. while the punks were slapping disco around in the late 70's, we have Van Halen to thank for driving a stake through its heart and putting it out of our misery. But many of you are too young to remember the influence the first =VH= album had.
