    Vic Johnson kicks!!

    I am sure eveyone posting here already knows this but Vic Johnson shreds! He totally impressed me at the STL show on 11-13-07. I have never seen him live and I must say he has a great style of his own and is very versatile. He was spot on an CVH tunes. Huge talent!

    I agree, you really have to see him live to appreciate what he does. He has an extremely hard job, playing Van Halen tunes!!! He does bring some of his own playing into the VH stuff, but overall I think he does a great job and is a very solid player.

    I 2nd that!
    alot of people around here like to bitch about him, and how he's this, and that!
    He is a great player, and he doesn't want to be Ed, or think he's Ed, he just goes out, plays what ever thay put in the set list, and has a damn good time doing just that!!!!
    I'd love it if I was in his shoes right about now!!

    Last night was the best by far that I've seen him play. I was really impressed. I kept telling my buddy at the show that the CVH tunes him and Mike were playing were note for note. Mike's set was definitely my favorite part of the show.

    Funny that Sammy didn't like playing Dave era songs but he certainly has no problem with Vic playing his Van Halen songs. How do you think Vic felt when Sammy asked him to play those songs? He had to have wondered how the fans would compare him to Eddie.

    Yeah, Vic is an insanely underrated player. Very melodic. Say, does anybody know what kind of guitars he plays? They look like PRS guitars, but I know that they're not.

    Not only is Vic a good guitar player, he is also a cool dude. I met him after one of Sammy's shows a few years ago.

    He was great in Cincinnati this month. His tone was great especially on Hear About It Later, one of my fave VH songs and he nailed it even the solo. He nailed Good Enough as well. Last time i saw him last summer he did skip the solo for "5150" and i wondered why. I bet he could nail that shit now.

    Like Vic gives a shit.....Vic is a cool dude, and he knows he's got a great gig with Sam. He'd play fuckin Poison if Sam asked him to, and have a helluva fun time doing it.

    Agreed. Saw him in Joliet at the Rialto Square Theatre on 11/11 and he was better than any other time I have seen him. Did a real nice job on the classic VH stuff with Mikey and really wailed on "Good Enough" during the Sam set. Seems a lot more comfortable with the VH stuff on this tour - heck he's been playing it long enough now !

    Anyone know why Sam doesn't (has he ever?) play Cabo Wabo in concert. Other than the version he ended his shows with since '99? Seems like that would be a must play at every show as that is what is life has been for at least the last 12 years.

    Vic is great!

    Sorry dude, I've seen Vic 3 times with Sammy and the guy can't even hold Ed's guitar strap.

    I've seen Vic live twice. I've got to say he is very good. He's no Ed, but he gets the job done and does the job pretty damn well.
