    Default Could the City of hope show ever be a official dvd?

    I've just watched the city of hope show from 10/16/96 and this has balls!!! Eddie Rocks and so does all the guests. The guests are Steve Winwood, Richie Sambora, Sheryl Crow and a line of other guests. I remember reading about it in "The Inside" years ago. It beats me how a dvd company has'nt picked this up and put it out on dvd. I got mine off a bootleg site, but its one of the most enjoyable shows i've seen. "Gimme some lovin" just rocks.

    Eddie was awful that night. He tried to hard in my opinion, and ruined the tunes he played on. After watching this performance, I understand why Eddie rarely plays outside his VH comfort zone. He's not very good at it.


    Edit..The Sheryl Crow version of "Bitch" is a fucking sacrilege. She must have sold her soul to the Devil, it's the only logical explanation for her being a famous..ahhmm..."musician".

    I doubt there's a market for it. A dvd might sell a few thousand copies, if that. Way too far in the past for it to be at all of interest to anyone anymore really.

    I have it on VHS, definitely not one of Ed's better moments. I agree it showed how Ed can really struggle outside of his own element.

    I remember watching that show and thinking "God Gawd, EVH has forgotten how to play guitar!".

    That being said, I've always been intrigued at the thought of what Eddie could have done playing with some other musicians. I would have loved to hear him collaborate with Joe Elliot from Def Leppard back in the 90's.
