    San Antonio, TX - I think it's safe to say he listened to our compaints ;)

    I'm pretty sure Eddie spent the time off practicing his solo, because this is the best I've heard him play since '95. Check this out!

    I dunno. I think his tone in '98 was just so sharp that you heard everything. Ever since '04, he's gotten kinda muddy. I don't think it's his playing, but his setup. Not to mention this isn't exactly a quality clip.

    Agreed 100% His tone in 98 was very crisp and almost trebley...but I think since 98 his tone started to get muddy and nasally. But a lot of your tone comes from your fingers...as Ed likes to put it

    wow that was terrible. Eddie's using Spanish Fly as a crutch because he can't play well anymore. He didn't even get the notes right, not a one of them.

    in 78 and 98 he sounded perfect. Today he's just ok.


    NOT!!!!!
    Wolfie is not Mike, but he's more than ok.
    Mike is gone, but not forgotten. They played some amazing shows from 2007-2015; some people are in denial about it.

    That was pretty damn good. Too bad the sound quality sucked. He sounds pretty killer there.

    Compared to the 12/30 Vegas show, it's like 2 different guitarists!! Amazing.
    There's no doubt Eddie still has "it". Maybe his tone isn't perfect...maybe he's not hitting every note exact...But as soon as I heard Spanish Fly, I was grinning ear to ear. I fucking love Eddie VH.

    Right on! I happen to love his tone now, but it really is like 2 different guitarists. It's very encouraging for the future.

    Maybe that wrist wrap is helping with any pain he may have from years of playing...

    I like the way he puts a little different spin on the old parts of the solo. Eddie was, is and will always be the King.
