Undoubtebly I vote for Jimi Hendrix too. Eddie is one great guitarist, but he is not that good as Jimi.

Jimi without a doubt. His music came from his soul, and it was his love. Eddie is a technican, Jimi was an artist

Hi debzonline. I would have to give Jimi Hendrix a definite advantage over Eddie Van Halen. I like both but hendrix changed the face of guitar playing in way that I am even sure he is on the list of Eddie's list of inspirational guitarists.

Jimi Hendrix is way better than Eddie.Jimi did things with the guitar that Eddie can only dream of doing.

Jimi Hendrix is in a different league when compared to Eddie Van Halen. Hendrix is the best rock guitarist ever. Jimi gets a 10 out of 10 & Eddie gets a 8 out of 10.

It is difficult to compare these two. They both had their great moments in two different time eras, both of their music are different, & even their styles are very different. Jimi Hendrix was a pioneer in that he was one of the first in hard rock / heavy metal. I'm sure that if Eddie Van Halen listed all his influences, Jimi Hendrix would be on that list. Only way to find out who is really better is for Eddie to try doing everything Jimi has done, & if Jimi was still alive today, have him try to do everything that Eddie has done.
