I agree with you about Van Halen. I would even go as far as saying that Roth is/was replaceable.

I can think of many guitar players who are very replaceable, not saying the sound would not change, but it would not change drastically:

Amir Derakh/Chris Hager in Rough Cutt. The guys in Warrant. Basically most of the guitar players in most hair bands did not have a lot of personality, or at least something that made them really different (exceptions: Richie Sambora, Reb Beach, Andy Timmons). But I think you could have put anyone who is good play in bands like Every Mother's Nightmare, Tuff, Herricane Alice, Helix, Jailhouse, Keel, Cold Sweat, Autograph and the likes, without risking changing their sound. Very few of these bands had/have strong musical identities anyway IMHO. Even most of the singers were in the same vein, a la Jani Lane/Vince Neil/Brett Michaels. In the newer bands, I don't think I ever heard a guitar player that was so unique that he would define the sound of a band.
