Possibly because EVH copped his signature style of playing from Steve Hackett (tapping), then overdid it. Not to mention VH songs are generally terrible & the rhythm section, well, let’s not even go there.Some of my most memorable online experiences (youtube) involve discovering previously undiscovered Hendrix tunes.
I've personally never heard a bad Jimmy James and the Blue Flames jam. Songs where Hendrix plays back up, same thing.
About half way through the list, shocked to see Elvis listed. And so many not liking Rush. But VH? How can anyone who claims to be a guitar player not like EVH? Makes no sense.
