    Default Your fave version of "One way to rock"?

    Sammy solo from "Standing Hampton"
    From "Live without a net"
    From "Right here right now"
    From "Live Halleilujah"


    The "Live without a net" version is by far, for me the best version of them all. infact its in my top 5 Hagar era VH tunes. I kinda wish VH recorded it for "ou812' with Eddie and Sammy with their dueling guitars at the end. i reckon that would've been cool.
    "LWAN" though, is killer. it puts chills up my spine man. It was an anthem for VH from "5150" to "RHRN", Was it played on the "Balance" tour? I have bootlegs but cant recall it being on there.

    I thought about starting a thread like this a few weeks ago, my favorite version has to be the one from LWAN, I wish they had recorded it as well (properly) but I dig the version on RHRN as well....it's pretty close between those 2 versions.

    One Way to Rock was played alot on the 2nd leg of the balance tour, they would play it and then jam a cream song for a few minutes, it was really, really cool.

    Never heard a version near as good as on LWAN. That song was one of the highlights of that show. Especially bad is any version without Eddie... yuck.

    I'm not a fan of the original studio version at all. I thought Eddie added spice too it. With VH it was like another song completely, as if it was on steroids. Truly, one of VH's best ever songs, regardless if it was a Sammy solo song beforehand.

    Eddie's fills are just awesome! I always dug the guitar duel as well. Just so powerful.

    "One way to rock" was the 2nd song of the show, they opened with "You really got me" but that was cut out.

    Agreed. His fills are what stuck out for me in that song. It's perfect... that song. Also, the ease in which Ed plays, especially in those days. He made everything look so effortless.

    First version I ever saw was the one Live from Tokyo Dome, it will forever be my favourite. Something slightly more practised (possibly?) about it than the LWAN version.

    Also, something really picky, but whatever guitar Sammy is using on LWAN is ugly as sin (is it a Jackson or a Dean?)

    Gotta like Mike's banana suit though.
    If I told the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about what I've gone through over the last 20 odd years, what it took to finally get where I am, people just wouldn't fucking believe it. So it's pointless. I now realize that I can't change people's minds, and I really don't want to or need to try. I'm at peace with it, and that's all that matters. - Edward Van Halen

    he plays a red and gold Randy Rhoads flying V for OWTR which has actually always been my favorite sammy guitar for some reason. He plays a red "strat" on the rest and maybe a dean guitar at one point, I have not watched tht video in along time but I have always loved that red flying V he plays at the beginning.

    I second this! I REALLY wish "Good Enough" wasn't cut out. One of my favorite Sam era songs.

    Oh, I forgot, I like any version that has Ed an Al playing on it. Otherwise, it's a decent, but not memorable, rock tune.
