    Default Video of Shark, Bumblebee, Star, Dragon, Circles, Rude

    Shark, 1978 "Eruption" into "You Really Got Me" -- jump to 3:33.



    Star, 1979 "Light Up the Sky"/"Runnin' with the Devil".





    Shark and Dragon, 1979 "On Fire"/"Feel Your Love Tonight".



    Dragon, 1979 "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" / "Eruption" / "D.O.A.", "You Really Got Me" / "Bottoms Up" -- it was an awesome guitar...

    Unchained / Circles guitar, June 1981 "Unchained".



    Is there any video of Ed playing Bumblebee or the Rude? I can't locate any after a bit more than just a cursory search.

    There is the brief Pinkpop 1980 news footage of "Running With The Devil" where Ed plays the Floyd-era Bumblebee. Also there is some fan shot poor quality 8mm footage of Ed with the Bumblebee on YouTube somewhere.

    Yeah , there's the brief clips that garbeaj mentioned . I've seen them before too . I think it's odd that there hasn't been more footage to surface -yet . Considering all the still photos we've seen of the Bumblebee in action .

    Also , I'm shocked that there aren't at least a few live photos of the Dragon/Snake guitar . Those grainy videos are cool and all , but ...

    Blatantly missed Shark video -- probably the best -- "Runnin' with the Devil" Japanese TV promo:

    Absolutely stunned and blown away by this video of the Rude -- along with Frank and the Unchained guitar. As far as I know, this is the only known footage of the Rude so far that has ever surfaced.



    Just awesome. Look at the Rude!

    love it! Anything from 1981 is pure gold.
    Even the partial-stage-view-camera-hiding-in-a-jacket-poking-out-between-someone's-head footage we have to cherish. ha.

    It is always cool to hear any bootleg audio of a 1981 "Sinner's Swing" so you can hear the entire of the coda that was unheard due to the fade out on the version from Fair Warning.

    Great vids for sure. A real treat seeing the "Rude" axe that's for sure.
