Well, that is impossible. I love them - the 3 amigos are the best and my favorite guitarists ever !

Dave and Adrian always will be the perfect guitar duo, but Janick is so underrated as a guitarist and maybe as a composer too - he fits Maiden and the unique style of the band perfectly. Besides, he wrote a metal masterpiece like Dance Of Death. :blush:
Janick is my favourite but I don't think he's necessarily the best - there are so many levels and criteria with which to measure "good" and they all score points for different aspects. But I do think he brought something to Maiden that they never had before, and I do think that Dave and Adrian have been affected positively by Janick's presence and contribution.

I think the main point is that Maiden needs all three of them. They are the perfect team :).
