Depends on your definition of the words 'play', 'playing'. I do not contest that VH can 'widdle' faster than Jimi did. But 'play' - play with such grace, subtlety, soul - ? No.

It's not just about speed: he popularized the use of artificial harmonics, natural harmonics, tapping harmonics and, of course, two hand tapping. Not to mention that he was the man who

invented modern tremolo techniques, he showed us all what a dive bomb was and helped Floyd Rose achieve it's current status... and there's eruption too.

Also, he was a great keyboardist

Ed is my favorite from the list.

Same here.
