    Shows the brilliance of EVH when you can take a song for piano and turn it into an acoustic/rock song. Its different but its good.

    A month or two ago, I may have had a problem with Sammy changing the song up but after seeing what John Mayer did to Panama, well "you go Sammy."

    It just kind of makes me cringe when Sammy said he never had a keyboard player in his band for 7 years.....

    Shit Sammy!
    Now Robert Plant should go and re-do Stairway To Heaven.

    Thats a keyboard song, no need to change anything. Why doesn't he go and get another keyboardist for his band since many of his "ballads" from his VH days are keyboard songs. Maybe its because Vic can't play Ed's solo? Don't worry about Vic and Sam, most guitarists can't play them either. The solos from any VH song are as important to the song structure as are the first notes of the song.

    My grandma can play the solo from Dreams.

    Cool version. Nice of Sam to mix it up!

    1. Love the song. The best version is from '95 with MA singing the high parts.

    2. If your grandma can play the solo: a) she is very talented or 2) you just insulted EVH - not Hagar.
    I don't have a cool signature. Deal with it!

    Vic can play like a motherfucker! He handled the old VH stuff with Mikey like a champ and Sam used to play Dreams with Jesse Harms in the band and Vic nailed the solo!

    By the way, I think Sam said we haven't had a keyboard player in several years ( not 7 years). When did Jesse quit by the way? Maybe it has been 7 years?

    As for Vic, I will also say he has an outstanding live tone as well. I have always wondered what he is runnin' since everytime I've seen Sam solo Vic blows me away with his tone! Especially when he played the old VH shit with Mike!Anybody know about his rig?

    He kind of ruined one of his best songs with VH. He's trying hard to go country isn't he. A lil' soft if I must say. And I hate it when Vic tries to play VH stuff,,,, I cringe. He can't play it so he changes it.

    Amen. And his band still hasn't been the same since Jesse left. This version of Dreams sucked by the way. I'm all for new things, but that was bad.

    You would expect me to know the truth because I know more than you, and Vic is ok, but sooooo overrated. Especially here on these links. Accept it Canada boy, he's not that good.

    Nice thread guys.

    BTW the reason I think Sam is doing it like that is he's almost 61 and can't scream that chorus anymore like he could.
