    Default Vito Baratta

    I wouldn't mind to see Vito added to the other half. He could copy eddie really well. Whatever happened to him?

    Vito - Awesome!!!!!

    I think he sells real estate in NJ?? Not 100% sure.

    Yeah, some say he's a copy cat but aren't we all!!!!!!!

    White Lion was an incredible band. Vito was the next generation of EVH.

    He is were EVH left and Vito carried the legend on - Old School Style.

    Like him or hate him listen to the "Wait" solo and try to tell me it's not one of the most incredible solos of all time!!!!!!!!!

    The band got labeled with the "Hair" days but so what. I am sick of people claiming they didn't like a Glam band or two. There were some great tunes that came out of that era. Most of the bands did carry it too far and that is what eventually got the poser term out there and killed the EVH guitar era.

    It's funny how Bon Jovi has come full circle and in 1985-6 Metallica was pictured throwing darts at a Bon Jovi poster in a locker room. Funny Pic!! Anyone have it.... It was hit parader or circus I believe.

    Bands do change but I think if people could accept change we could better accept why EVH doesn't use the flanger anymore on an opening riff to make another "Unchained".

    Times change - People change -Let them.
    A true fan can accept the artists growth. We all have Fair Warning so play it over and over again. Leave it alone.

    Trust me I am all for EVH going back to VH1 or FW but he needs to move on.

    Later

    I would pay for a cd with Vito instead of Ed. Don't get me wrong I love Ed but Vito to me would the next best thing and would be new music. He just fell of the face of the earth. Shame

    What does this have to do with VH? You would buy a Van Halen album without Ed on it? LOL. Ok.

    I'm moving this to the Guitar forum.

    everything i remember from vito brata was that he was exact clone of evh. but i was never into white lion. they did have wait and when the children cry. but i wont bash him . as far as now a days i believe he is doing some thing in the way of helping up and coming bands . i think he has a website or data base . something like that.

    He had one of the greatest tones I ever heard, a good player. I think the band suffered because the singer sucked, some good stuff, but no longevity with that voice. too bad he didnt do much on his own, maybe he needs a good producer or someone pushing him to come out with the stuff he did

    Don't get me wrong I think Ed is amazing. The reason I started this post was because a few people were talking about ed keeping the rest of band from putting out a cd or playing live so I was just throwing a name out there and who would be a good replacement.

    Vito broke part of his wrist playing an acoustic guitar a few years ago. The doctors said he will not be able to play guitar again.

    IMO Vito was a great guitar player in the wrong band. Mike Tramp was a wanker and that tainted Vito's credibility.
    Hopefully Vito can recover and bring us some great tunes. But all we have is what he did with White Lion.

    A friend of mine interviewed Mike Tramp last year. He asked him about a possible White Lion reunion. Tramp said it would never happen as Vito is not inetrested in playing the guitar anymore and hasn't played it in years. He reckons that Vito is a borderline manic depressant.

    I'd be depressed if my lead singer sucked and I couldn't play anymore. Mike Tramp is a wanker.

    Yeah Vito doesn't play anymore last I heard because of the wrist injury. And Mike Tramp did suck massive balls, but Bratta could play. I always thought Wait was a cool little tune. Very VH-ish.

    I just wanna chime in and give Vito his props. I started a thread about year ago giving Vito some props. I remember writing a letter to guitar world or guitar magazine or wahtever when I was in 7th grade and dug up my bros white lion and heard Vito play. I claimed that he would be the only man who could EVER replace Eddie in Van Halen. I still believe that too. He was real good. I like the last few bars of all you need is rock and roll, I wish is kept going on...the live version from their best of he noodles around for a bit longer. Too bad he cant play anymore. But if he is living round here in Jersey I wanna bump into him...maybe pretend i need some real estate.

    Found the post below on a board, supposedly from a guy that knows Vito. Apparently his hand is fine and he still plays, just not very much.
