Eddie van Halen isn't a bad guitarist at all, but he's also overrated by his fans, IMO. Manny is right, he isn't as good as Page - not even close, and I've seen all of those guys play live before. As far as Clark went, manny you are totally wrong to say he was tone deft. For a 19 year old kid who I really knew nothing about, when I saw him from the first row the next night up on stage playing, I was very impressed by his great playing. You noted Page, well that's who's style he borrowed somewhat from. In fact, the night before we talked about Page, since although these kids knew little about classic rock (they only knew Joe Cocker well of all such artists, since they were from the very same UK town as he was from, but they were true metal heads), they were both big fans of Page, and I recall Clark telling me that he played in Page's style. When I saw him play the next night, although he didn't play exactly like Page played, yes, I could see how much he was influenced by him. Plus he was good, very good, in fact I would say he played that night better than when I saw Eddie play live. But that isn't to say Eddie isn't any good, either. He's very good, just overrated.
