No idea. But I do know that the "Riff Lord" section [where Jon is able to be voted for] is sponsored by Guitar Hero, so that means whoever wins will be featured on the next release [minus Guitar Hero Aerosmith.....ugh]

Dave used to be in Metallica and he was co-writer in some of their classic songs... He doesn't copy anything.

I think the only one that would have any competition is Dave Mustaine, but as I've said before, one of my friends asked me "who would win in a guitar battle - Kirk Hammett or Dave Mustaine?" I said "Neither. Jon Schaffer would kick both their asses."
