    Default NAMM 1996

    Never saw this before, sweet video. There was a lot of shit going on behind the scenes in the timeline of the band at this point. None of it came through in this.

    You don't know anyone that's scared to be in front of people man? Really. Bright room full of people that idolize the hell out of you. Every time he plays a little lick, they scream uncontrollably. He's reportedly done some weird shit, but I don't see anything strange here. He's just scared as shit.

    This is probably the closest we could get to knowing the real EVH. He is totally sober there and he seems genuinely terrified of being there in front of a large group of people. It really is an interesting glimpse into who EVH is...he really is insecure and nervous about himself, and his confession about turning into an alcoholic to help deal with his stage fright was revealing. An interesting and rare moment captured on video. He seems like a genuinely good guy. Hard to believe that this is the same guy who played at the US festival and has done countless world tours, played in front of tens of thousands many many times. Thanks for finding this, never seen it before.

    Eddie is not unique in his uncomfortableness in playing in front of a room like that.

    Any guitar player should know that it is VERY uncomfortable when you're standing in front of a room of people by yourself and they say: "PLAY SOMETHING".

    It's uncomfortable. I know it.

    Im always nervous in front of people, less so when i have a guitar on but still uncomfortable.
    My mind always goes blank when someone wants me to play something.

    Ya I can totally relate to that feeling. I have extreme stagefright and I will rarely play in front of a group of people, even friends...mostly because I suck though It is indeed a common problem for many people. Miles Davis would often hide behind a curtain for a lot of his shows because he was too afraid to play in front of an audience...many stories of artists and performers who become violently ill before having to play in front of an audience.

    Yeah! Funny how that is huh? In a weird way, I find playing small rooms of people more intimidating somehow than a larger venue too. Not sure why, but that's exactly what happens to me.....My mind will go blank. Drives me nuts....and very hard to explain. Usually goes away after a little bit, but yeah....if someone asks me to play something I'm like "Uhhhhhhh......Hmmmmmm how does that go? haha" Even though I've played it tons of times. Even if I never played it before, or rehearsed it with a band, I can usually pull it off winging it as long as were tight enough to recognize our ques.
    So I totally get where Ed was here. in a way it kind of gives you a little redemption as far as it happens to the best of 'em. I love the part where the guy rips off some Eddie licks....stops and says "I'm scared to death!" Then Eddie goes "So am I!!!!!!"
    That was funny as hell.

    Really cool to see him in that enviornment. Hard to believe what was to happen so shortly down the road, Sammy's demise, the 1996 MTV awards, VH III, and his descent into severe alcoholism on through the 2004 reunion. How I wish that 1995 machiene would have just kept rolling.
