Below is a cut and paste from the VH FAQ section of the VHML.


I hear faint talking during the beginning of "Poundcake." Who is that, and what are they saying?
That's Eddie and Alex. They're saying:

Alex: "Ain't that some shit."
Eddie: "Ok, ready to go?"
Alex: "Yea."
Eddie: "Yea?"
Alex: "Let's do it."
Eddie: "A'right."

I can't believe Paul Gilbert sued EVH, it's not like copying a song...
The story was that Mr.Big had just released their major success, Lean Into It (the one with To Be With You, Just Take My Heart, Green Tinted Sixties Mind, ecc...), and their first song, "Daddy, Brother, Lover and Your Little Boy (The Drill Song)" (as it was named) started with the drill. Later EVH came out with Poundcake, where he used the drill and due to his fame got the credit for the idea, even if Paul Gilbert used it first... this is it! http://www.vhforums.com/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif

<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>I can't imagine that Paul Gilbert sued Eddie over his use of the drill in Poundcake. On what basis could a lawsuit even be brought? A drill is just a sound, no different than hammer-ons being a sound, and Eddie didn't sue the million other guitarists who used those. Of course Eddie didn't invent hammer-ons, but he certainly popularized them. I don't see what Gilbert would have had to gain from a lawsuit except maybe a hefty legal bill.

The drill sound--is that supposed to be a cake "mixer" sound?
