    who remembers this gem? I remember reading that Ed did two songs with Dolby as a favor for showing him some synth stuff. Listen to his solo at around 3:30. Considering this song came out in 92 after FUCK and around RHRN its kind of amazing to hear eddie take it back to the mid 80's with his playing considering his darker more serious style/tone that was starting to emerge at that time.
    WHOAOH! Hey you! Who said that? Baby how you been?

    Always liked Close but No Cigar. Was going to post the link, but Mike Zack beat me to it!

    I love hearing Ed on other's people's albums. Because while it sounds like Ed, he doesn't sound like he typically does on VH albums. Shows that Ed has some range.

    Another example is Ed's guitar work on Lost Boys Calling, by Roger Waters. Very graceful, very restrained. Not at all typical VH, but still sounds like Ed.

    It's also cool when you go to the Youtube link and read the comments. Reading comments about EVH from Thomas Dolby fans is cool. Definitely appreciation for "Mr. Van Halen" as the Dolby fans say.

    I bought the tape in 1992.
    The two Eddie songs were right next to each other.

    I remember the day I stumbled on this Thomas Dolby CD at a used CD store. I think it was $4. Always loved Close but no Cigar.
    Signature not currently available. You aren't missing much.
