    Default The right way to play "I'll Wait"

    I hadn't seen this in a long time, but the right way to play "I'll Wait" is with both Ed and Mike playing keys. For people who thought they saw "I'll Wait" in 2007, this is the real "I'll Wait" without anything pre-recorded:



    Of course you need Mike in the band in that case!

    As a bonus, the European "I'll Wait" video:



    notice how they show the girl reading a letter, even though Dave said he "never sent it" in the song...

    I've must have watched that Van Halen-84 Montreal bootleg a thousand times over the years. Can't beat VH in their prime.

    yeah ed should play keys live...the pre-recorded keyboards thing is kinda weak. even if he messes up a little to switch to guitar, that's why it's a LIVE show and not a recording!
    Any musicians near Boston / Cape Cod want to get together and play some VH? I play drums, guitar, keyboard, bass, and I sing. I want to start a VH tribute band. Contact me if interested.

    Van Halen needs to update those 80's shit keyboards with real warm, deep grand piano or stand up bar room type tinkling.

    It could be done, but they don't seem to care much this time out of the mothballs.

    I'll still believe that '07-'08 was just a stupid dress rehearsal for family bags and damage plans, as the contracts stand run through.

    Oh well... whatever!

    I had never seen that before. Thanks for posting. Dave has the stage all to himself. How apropos.

    It wasn't until a few weeks ago when I saw that photo of M.A. playing keys on ...And the Cradle Will Rock did I realize he played the keys at all.

    Learn something new here from time to time.
