Eddie's a legend and he rocks too! Angus is great, but I think Eddie's better personally. Van Halen has always been my favorite group, because I love and admire their talent.

This comparison is stupid!! Young and Van Halen play with two very distinct styles. It seems to me that Young plays a more traditional driving rock-and-roll while Van Halen plays licks from another planet. Why compare apples and oranges. They both taste soooo good!

Re: Angus Young vs. Eddie Van Halen

I agree with the person who said that Angus plays more traditional rock music; Edward has his own very unique style. I have heard no one who can even come close to the skill of Edward Van Halen. Plus, he and Angus do have totally different styles of playing

no angus is better. who else can travel the fret board as fast as him?

Re: Angus Young vs. Eddie Van Halen

Hey angus young fans!! If angus would listen to van halens "eruption" he would be on the floor crying!! I am sorry, but angus young is nothing compared to eddie. His musical genus led to crazy new styles. Angus is good, not better.

Hi, I´am a great fan of AC/DC and Van Halen as well, from Argentina and I think that both of them are great guitarrist's, but diffrent... Eddie is better in a technical point of view; Angus has that touch of incredible power. And what about Carlitos Santana?

Best regads

Re: Angus Young vs. Eddie Van Halen

From Argentina too. Eddie Wins without any doubt. He's better technically, musically, and I like more his tone. I really like Angus, but I think He is more a "rock&roll guitarist".

Re: Angus Young vs. Eddie Van Halen

Angus Young is a BADMOFO without question.But Eddie V.
is an innovator.He invented two-hand tapping,and knew his harmonics like back of his hand.Also,superb picking technique,lightining fast with razor-sharp articulation.Knows all the scales back to front and Van
Halen albums 1-4 are classics.
Rock dude

Re: Angus Young vs. Eddie Van Halen

Can Eddie Van Halen do a single-handed guitar solo?Check out "TUNDERSTRUCK" by AC/DC,Angus has to be THE BEST guitarist in the world.This is Angus Youngs Irish connection,keep rockin' bud.

Check out every eddie solo and just see how much better he is

Re: Angus Young vs. Eddie Van Halen

both of them are legends, but Angus is THE GREATEST. He can say with two notes, what others do with fifty. His vibrato is excellent, and he also composes with his brother great riffs. His stage appearance is also fantastic. He introduced BB King and Chuck Berry to a metalhead, and this isn 't an easy job.
ANGUS ROCKS 'N' RULES

I highly respect eddie van halen and he is a technical guitar god
But angus...
eddies heavy metal is awesome but in my opinion angus' rhythm-and-bruise style kicks ass and he has the best on stage act ive seen.
angus rocks

Re: Angus Young vs. Eddie Van Halen

I think that Eddie Van Halen is better because he could crush Angus Young in a guitar match.

aangus young is the best guitarist your right

Re: Angus Young vs. Eddie Van Halen

They are both legends in their own right, and have contributed endless knowledge to the guitar as an intstrument, but Eddie's style and technical ability is far more impressive than Angus'.

: They are both legends in their own right, and have contributed endless knowledge to the guitar as an instrument, but Eddie's style and technical ability is far more impressive than Angus'.

: To take it a step further, although it may be true that Eddie could easily play any of the notes backward and forward that Angus does, I don't think he could convince us that he means it the way Angus does. Eddie has been known to complain that he would rather play keyboard. At some point along the way, Eddie lost his passion. You could hear it in his older stuff but now it's dry. Angus still believes in his much simpler style, and he takes us there with him. Angus gives us the passion that Eddie used to feel in his youth. If music is too much brain and not enough heart it may be impressive but it’s not very listen able.

: Who is the better guitarist: Angus Young or Eddie Van Halen.

: I think Angus Young is more fast with the guitat, but eddie van halen has much more tecnic

Re: Angus Young vs. Eddie Van Halen

Angus Young rules!!!!!!!Why?? Because he's still doing what he loves to do, and didn't marry a bitch to slow him down.

Re: Angus Young vs. Eddie Van Halen

: Who is the better guitarist: Angus Young or Eddie Van Halen.

:Angus Angus Angus!!! I have never been so mesmerized by a musician. He is channeling something so incredible and in such an uninhibited manner--you just feel the passion. Not to mention never missing a note with all the leaping and falling and head bobbing...Angus is my new hero.

Re: Angus Young vs. Eddie Van Halen

Van halen is technically far superior.
Frankly they both suck compared to Randy Rhoads when he was alive.
