    Default Remembering The Good Times...

    To all those fans who think Eddie is nothing like he used to be when it comes to playing guitar and have basically given up on the musical state of this band, I give you one of his finest solos to date on one of the band's finest tours. It's a nice reminder of, no matter what the band is doing now, why we're here still posting about their music from the past.

    I'll never forget Summer 2005, when I was at one of the lowest points in my personal life and just getting into VH boots, this is the show I always found myself listening to, and the solo blew me away everytime, no matter what. I disagree with the decisions he's made over the past four years, but that doesn't diminish the fact that I believe, historically, he's the greatest guitarist who's ever walked the face of this Earth.

    This is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face, whether you're a Sam fan, Dave fan, whatever. It's time to bask in the greatness of what the man once was and shine a light on the dark situations we've recently encountered in this band.



    Sit back, relax, and most of all, enjoy!

    Putting this DVD on...cranking it 5.1.....My God.....One of his best!

    0:25 - 0:36 Pure GREATNESS! I guess it's sad looking back a couple years and looking at right now....how many people think I hate Eddie....but he really was the only reason I became a fan of VH.

    One question:



    Where can I find a DVD of this QUALITY for the US Festival. This is amazing. My video of this is no where near this good. Plus the version I have doesn't even include YRGM!

    I've actually been asking myself the same thing. I have pretty much every upgraded pro-shot from this band out there (except for my God-awful copy of the 1998 Sydney show), but I still don't have a copy of this one. Been looking for some time. I never got the "Old No. 7" remaster, either.

    I do have a problem with that video, though. They really doctored up Dave's vocal, which kinda ruins it. Dave has never sung that well live, which, oddly enough, destroys it's appeal, KNOWING it's doctored. I really don't think this is the Showtime special from a few years back, either, based on the Japanese text below the title of the song.

    Still, it would be outstanding if we could get a US Festival DVD of such terrific video quality regardless. Hell for me, it'd be outstanding to have the US Festival DVD in general

    Well, I was at both of those Toronto shows, and it really was magical. The quality of those clips, even though they are good, doesn't do it justice. Man, I remember when Eddie launched into Cathedral, the notes were just soaring off into space. I remember looking up into the night sky and listening to those notes just going everywhere, it was truly beautiful. I get goosebumps just thinking about it...now, not so much. I don't know why exactly, but Cathedral just sounds quiet and flat, like something is off. Loved the two 07 shows I got to see here in Toronto, they were great (Eddie's solo wasn't though), but a little something was missing. I'm not even talking about Mike, it's more like all the bullshit that has gone on over the years has taken a little of that magic away. I dunno, maybe the past always seems better than the present...

    Chef, thanks so much for posting that. It actually brought a tear to my eye. Not only is it one of my favorite DLR tunes, but the video was really touching. It brought back a lot of great memories for me.

    That made my day.
    Stay strong, Edward!
