When I was a young'un in the early '80s, still new to the guitar and looking for great players to inspire me, I asked a few adults, including my father, to name some great guitarists, people I should be listening to and learning from.

Van Halen was being interviewed by reporter Lisa Robinson, who starts things off by saying, "You can play many different styles of guitar, can't you? You were telling me before you can play 'Crossroads' note for note."
