    Default Ed Solo Footage.

    This friggin kicks ass. Its the middle of the solo. I like the Wah part. I haven't seen him use a Wah like that since 1992 (fuck tour). Ed is rippin again!!! Not quite 1986 rippin, but gettin close!!!!

    Lets just throw a pound of weed in the fire place, f@#% it!

    Ya, I really like the wah part too. I think he plays pretty different from 1986. Sure, he was fabulous then, but I really like how he is playing so far on this tour from what I've heard. There is a fire and energy in his playing again, along with all of the usual sound effects and noise he does. He seems to have his hands back, and his heart. I honestly think he is about as good now as he was in his younger years, his playing style has changed though. His tone now though, is as good as it's every been live. But really, I think it's just age has changed his phrasing and attack so that he's a different player. Still Eddie though, and it's all good...

    While I will agree that he is way better than 04, I don't feel like he is anywhere near ED circa 86. His playing now has become so predictable and I feel that he relies to much on his "tricks" when he doesn't know what else to play. His playing is just so repetitive these days especially during his solo. I felt Ed used to be so cutting edge, but if you really listen now it's the same old licks. While I love this to a certain degree, it is dissapointing that he hasn't really moved forward with his playing. There's one lick ( can't describe it in writing) that he just kicks like a dead horse. I just wish he would step out of "his" playing rut and expand to where he could be. Try some new runs-licks and step out of the shadow of himself. But it probably won't happen as he even admits to not practicing and that his playing is like riding a bike for him.

    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    That was fucking killer! Way much more than what we got in Philly last night. I'm jealous now.
