    Default Cool Ed story...

    Seeing that Ed gets all the bashing because he is not as cool as Sam running to the press all the time, I came across this cool story:

    http://www.hugeracksinc.com/board/vi...=16358&start=0

    It's a cool read, and the guys on this board are SERIOUS players, alot of them are session players and techs for players in the industry, Lonnie (Ed's tech for the last tour) goes by guitartreky, very cool guy and he chimes in on the post, and check out the clip from a few pages in:

    http://www.davidphillipsmusic.com/Ed76.mp3

    Listen to the tone and how clean he was even back then, that's why he is the man.

    I liked this post the best. No booze!

    "I never went thru any big EVH phase in my playing, so meeting him was kind of like meeting any other super famous rock star. That being said, he was totall cool. No booze or anything else just one of the guys. We these types its best not to talk about guitars and geeky music stuff. I'm a fan."

    Does anyone think that clip is maybe not from '76? Is there a way to tell for sure? Does anyone know if any of those licks were introduced a little later? It just seems so developed. The way the drums intro too. It has everything from the eruption recording except the tapping it seems. The quality is really high as well. What do you think?

    Pretty sure it's from 76 because I have the same show. Ed's style was devloped even way back then. Gotta remember that they only played the club circuit for a few more months, did the demo's with Gene, went back to gigs and then were signed to WB. The rest is history.
