The two badest guitarist to come out during the 80's. ZZ top has the crazest berdes in the world wall Van Helen had the tabbing master. On one hand ZZtop has one of the best slide and blues players then Van Helen made guitarist discover the tabbing tec. But ZZtop brought back that old blue sound with some killer solo's. BUt for me I choose ZZ top becouse I love that blues sound but I still respect Eddie Van Helen.
