    I was just looking through Napster under Eddie Van Halen and one of the search results is "Eddie Van Halen - Top Gun Theme". I assume this is the guitar based tune in the movie Top Gun. Did Eddie play this for the movie? I've never heared it refered to as his tune before. I'm downloading it now so I am yet to hrae what it sounds like.

    Its a great tune that theme - really sticks in your head.

    That piece was credited to Steve Stevens and Harold Faltermeier..Stevens sounds like Ed a bit on this tune, that's probably why they listed it like that.

    It's Steve Stevens, EVH, and Joe Satriani all playing at the same time.

    It definitely does resemble EVH but it is Steve Stevens. Trust me, I had to look at the credits to make sure

    Right Now, it's safe to add one (1) to my post count.
    Right Now, strange is beautiful.
    Right Now, I'm a Dirty Faced Kid.
    Right Now, teenybopper trash doesn't stand a chance.
    Right Now, MTV has no idea what happens when rabid Van Halen fans have their favorite band insulted.
    Soon Enough, they'll learn the hard way.

    I've heard that Steve Stevens Flamenco a go-go is a killer CD. He is a pretty decent player.

    I would think he's still mostly remembered as the guitarist on Billy Idol's first 3 albums, songs like "White Wedding", "Rebel Yell", "Don't Need A Gun", etc. I think they're working together again.
