    Default Best Breakdown in a VH Song

    My vote goes to "Light Up The Sky". Eddie's playing during that interlude is just sick!

    Always loved the breakdown in Dirty Movies. "Take it oooofff...Take it all offff!!" And the one in Get Up is equally bad ass. Only EVH can think of a kick ass riff like that.

    How 'bout the one towards the end of "House Of Pain"?

    I always liked the live breakdown in the middle of 5150 off LWAN right before the solo kicks in ! That solo, by the way, is also on the list as one of Ed's best !

    Well said! The live version of 5150 on the Tokyo Dome show is better playing wise.
