    Default Ed and California Surf

    I was just wondering why Ed has never really embraced California Surf music in many of his songs? I think he could do some really cool abstract riffing on his version of Surf. Other than maybe pieces of -On Fire- there seems to be no influence of the awesome California Surf sound in his guitar playing. I wish he would try this I think it would be awesome to hear!

    Ask Gidget or Moondoggy!
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    Maybe Ed can build a sandpit in 5150 like Brian Wilson did...
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    Listen to this. I can't help but think Eddie's love of single-note tremolo picking comes from this guy:
