Eddie Van Halen Named the Greatest Guitarist Of All Time
Van Halen took the honors after nearly half a million total votes were cast in the magazine's first-ever Greatest Guitarist poll.

In the final matchup, which took place early this week, Van Halen faced off against an unlikely opponent in Queen's Brian May, pulling a hefty 62.48 percent of the votes to claim a decisive win over the upset-happy May, who beat Jeff Beck, George Harrison, Les Paul, Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix on his way to the finals. more on this story
