    Eruption: Does it ever get old?

    I threw in BOV1 and listened to 'Eruption' for the millionth time.
    Everytime I hear it, it still sounds great and still amazes me.

    What do others think about this historic piece of music?

    No it never gets old for me. There never was nor never will be anything like it ever again. Simply amazing!

    Mike is gone, but not forgotten. They played some amazing shows from 2007-2015; some people are in denial about it.

    Agreed- it never gets old, does it? One thing I will say is that originally in '78 I was blown away by the tapped part near the end (well, it's actually right handed hammer-ons and pull-offs). We thought he was an alien, no one had a freakin' clue what he was doing. For the past 15 years or so it is the conventionally picked part from the beginning up until the tapping that blows me away. That is some tough shit to try and emulate. Many people have the notes and the speed down but don't get the phrasing or feel of it (myself included on both counts). Just an incredible raw display of skill, and to think that he had no intention of recording it since it was just his warm-up routine in the studio, and part of his extended live solo. I also love the little details like how you can easily hear the hissing of his boosted Marshall Plexi at the quiet part. This would not be allowed in today's picture-perfect studio environment.

    To this day, every time I hear it, I think back to the first time I heard it... A slackjawed, goofy kid staring at my speakers in complete amazement.

    I don't think any young man ever forgets his first eruption.
    And, no. It never gets old. Familiar, maybe, but always enjoyable.

    No, it never gets old. That is the best guitar piece I've ever heard in my 36 years. Perfection.

    A lot of it is just the sonics of it - the tone. Another thing that separated Ed
    from the 70s heard was he instantly dated their sound in comparison. It
    sounded like hot lava and flying things. And the saturated nature of it lends
    an analog quality that ages much better than the overdriven antecedents
    of say, Black Sabbath or even Zep. It was heavier.

    The only thing that gets old is seeing every 10 year old on youtube playing it. Good, I'm glad you can play Eruption you little bastard.

    Never. The climax of it still to this day sends chills down my spine, live or otherwise.
