    This is a Tribute band. That means that they are trying to sound just like the artist they are paying tribute to. It is not some one that is trying to sound like EVH to define their own style. I know this guy personally and can tell you that he is talented in playing all styles of music. He and some friends were asked to do a tribute and they decided to do CVH. They played maybe 5 shows over a two or three year period and have had many request to do more. They only do it for fun. In no way is he trying to pass this off as anything more then exactly what it is a tribute.

    I am aware of what it is and I realize that the guy can play. It is still getting old.

    Yes.

    On a scale of 1-10 I'd say that was maybe 6.5 - 7

    I sure wouldn't want to ever stand on stage with a frank replica trying to act like a clone. I'd play maybe one song and be like "ya, OK this is pathetic. I'm on stage not being myself, but trying to live in the spotlight of someone else's success hoping the audience will think I'm the shit on guitar"

    One noticeable difference between Judas Priest and Metallica...
    ...Judas Priest only has one gay guy in the band.

    I agree, and I'll go you one further. I'm tired of watching Ed play this. I want to see him play something new.

    Obviously the guy has skills but if you shrink the screen down and just listen it sounds way too friggin' fast. No way that's the best Eruption on youtube. Personally, I think MOJODOJO does a much better job.

    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.
