    Default 78/79 Ed audio interview/noodling with Steve Rosen

    Noodling through a lot of what he was working on at the time, stuff that had just been recorded for VH2.

    Also talks about Dave breaking his ankle.

    "I've never heard of anything from him (Les Paul)."

    That's absolutely hilarious given the history they would have together.

    "The best [licks] that I play are the ones I don't think about. And...I can't show you those, because I don't know them."

    HAHAHAHA As a guitarist I can totally relate

    It's also hilarious hearing him say: "I can't really do it slow..." I thought I was the only one!

    This Steve Rosen has the same reaction I think most of us would have; He's got a lot of: "So you do....wait, so how do you...and that thing...hold on, show me...."

    And...probably the best quote from Ed at the end...

    "Actually, I hate doing interviews..." as the audio cuts out. That about sums it up.

    Thanks for posting. That may be pulled after a while like the huge audio interview from Jas Obrecht that was on YouTube for a while and then pulled. Save it while you can guys and gals.

    Thanks.

    The same journalist has clips with Ozzy Osbourne, Michael Jackson, a George Harrison press conference etc, check his other uploads.

    that was greatness!

    Ed saying (something along the lines) "I'm not warmed up yet so I cant really play". WTF? He sounded great.

    I was kind of taken aback when hearing just how friggin hard Ed was hammering on/pulling off when he showed the guy how to do those cascading harmonics from SGMAD and YNG. It sounded like he was close to denting the fretboard. Crazy.

    Probably a defense mechanism he threw out there to explain any flubs.

    I'm surprised there aren't more comments on this interview. To me, this is one of the most interesting interviews I've ever heard Eddie do. He's got a guitar in his hand, he's not jaded from all the years of interviews, and he isn't giving stock answers. Plus, it's just so raw and real--none of the BS, cleaned up quotes, and talking points like you get in print interviews.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Great point.

    It's always hard to tell with electric guitars how hard someone is attacking the strings, but when he's unplugged you can really tell how precise and stiff some of those runs are. Reminds me of the middle part of Spanish Fly. It sounds like he's going to rip the string in half the way he hammers and picks those runs.
