It's apples and oranges. David Gilmour is a great "slowhand" style guitarist. Pete Townshend has a hard, smashmouth style that was a precursor metal and punk. I'm not sure you can pick one.

I guess you are right. I was watching VH1 Classic yesterday and they were on a promo back to back and it got me thinking.

Good point.

Although, Dave can shred when the situation calls for it.

Here's an interesting tidbit I learned on Wikipedia today.

Deep End was a short-lived supergroup founded by guitarist Pete Townshend of The Who and featuring David Gilmour of Pink Floyd. The group also included drummer Simon Phillips, bassist Chucho Merchan, percussionist Jody Linscott, keyboardist John 'Rabbit' Bundrick, backing vocalists Billy Nicholls, Cleveland Watkiss, and Chyna, and a five-piece brass ensemble called The Kickhorns. The group performed two 1985 charity concerts at London's Brixton Academy (a third was cancelled due to poor ticket sales), which were later released as the album Deep End Live!

Both are great, but I prefer Gilmour's guitar style better than Townsend. But I prefer Townsend's vocals to Gilmours vocals and Townsend also does sythesizers. So its a tie. How's that for a non-answer.
