    Panama, Jump, Dance the Night Away, You Really got Me, Dancing in the Streets ain't exactly the Blues.

    I actually thought Eddie was a little more bluesy with Sammy. Listen to the solo's in when it's love and right now. Those are pretty bluesy. Heck they even put a blues tune at the end of OU812. I also think the intro to BOBW was kind of bluesy from LWOAN. I think all in all Eddie has taken many cues from the blues throughout his years. Maybe the Roth stuff sounds grittier because they tuned down to accomadate Roth's voice.

    ZZ's rule!!

    The blues had a baby and they called it rock and roll.

    Ed doesn't have much of delta, chicago or texas style blues vibe but there's blues are at the heart of most of his compositions.

    Dude you're comparing Dreams to Ice Cream Man? ROFL! At least compare apples to apples. For every Ice Cream Man, there's a Jump, I'll Wait, Secrets, Dance The Night Away...hardly the blues either.

    I agree with ZZ, Ed's playing isn't so much standard blues, it's got feel though. But shit, rock guitar IS blues-based.

    Some computer keyboards have a 'Shift' key right below the 'Caps Lock' key.

    Off the top of my head the blusiest EVH bits while with Dave are....

    Intro to Fools
    Post solo in The Full Bug
    Intro to Take Your Whiskey Home
    Intro to the live version of So This Is Love

    I would not call these examples the second coming of Robert Johnson or even Eugene "Lightning Boy" Matrone.

    I feel what your saying. Fools for sure; Could This Be Magic, Whiskey, etc...
    A Political Blues is a great Sam-era for sure blues song. Seems to me like Ed flirts with a blues feel here and there, but mainly more straight forward rock.

    if anything they played more boogie woogie stuff back then than blues.

    And just because Dave sometimes started doing his "gypsy woman... blah blah blah" thing during songs doesn't mean they were playing the blues.

    "Gypsy woman" is a 15 yard penalty along with "back against the wall" and "sticky situatiion"

    Len75, I know exactly what you mean. Seems everyone has some piss soaked cornflakes this morning.
    While not directly in the recordings, Ed has a lot of that feel to his playing. Obviously since his original hero was Clapton, some of it was likely to slip into his style.
