Quoted from Who-Dey:

Wow this is shocking news. He was a legend and one of the greatest guitarists ever. So glad that I had the pleasure to see him in concert twice. What a bummer this is......
RIP Eddie

Hopefully Eddie was waiting for you with an epic solo. RIP Bud

I painted this piece from the back of "Women & Children First"

... Eddie will live on!

Quoted from rotordave:

Bass solos generally suck ...
But the worst solos I have ever seen are Mick Mars from Motley Crüe.
I’ve seen them 3 times, and holy shit his guitar solo sections are so bad ... just a huge unmusical racket.
Every time I’ve had to literally cover my earholes to ward off potential permanent ear damage!
Oooooooooffff. Just thinking about it makes my tinnitus go another pitch higher.

Well, in Mick Mars defense, he's a crappy player.

well not everything is about wanky guitar shit...

guy writes some good riffs and had good tone which is way more important then going weedly weedly on guitar

Van halen was the rare guy who can write and go weedly weedly at a high level, most flashy guitar players cant write to save their lives.

Plus I think he's like 85 years old or something.. miracle he can play at all.

Wolfy hit #1 album on Billboard today. Good for him, even saw Sammy gave him some props

Man I want to like this because I love the idea of it but its so overproduced.

Sounds like Nickelback or something

Fuck wolfie!! Keeping ACDC off the top spot?!

Been listening a lot to their best album lately, Fair Warning. Man does it rock--some of EVH's best guitar work. Dave even actually sings well on it, too.

A real shame no one ever could get Eddie to do a solo album, a missed opportunity for his fans.

And its like 30 minutes long or something... their records were really short but you always felt like you got your monies worth.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

A great tribute to EVH!

That was great! I'm not sure how I ever missed it, but I had no clue they ever went on Donahue. I love how they went "G" rated for about a minute and then started lighting up the crowd, calling them liars. The look of disgust from that uptight audience was priceless.

This is pretty incredible

EVH fans like Star Wars fans

More cool stories coming out the woodwork. And these demos Eddie & Alex did with Gene. Wow, those demos should be released officially

#267 47 days ago

Gene still telling that bullshit story about EVH clamoring to join KISS in 1982?

Gene can tell some whoppers that’s for sure.

Can you imagine? I think Kiss is a hoot live and all that but someone of EVH ability playing on those dumbass songs?

Most Kiss songs sound like Spinal Tap B sides.

Lol. I have to agree. EVJ talent would have been wasted and can you imagine those two egos clashing.

No No No

Gene did discover and produce VH demo, that is fact. Obviously thou would have been tragic if Eddie joined KISS though.

That demo is rippin thou, EVH & AVH
