    Default Van Halen 3 Promo, Interview, Panama, One I Want, Meet and Greet, etc.



    Some observations...

    It's nearly impossible to see Ed do interviews during this timeframe. A lot of BS coming from him. Soulmate, brother, etc. Blech.

    Man, he was playing a mean guitar then though. Very crunchy and really just mistake-free. He was really attacking the instrument. In some ways, you have to admire this. I think he truly wanted to see Gary accepted, and by God, he was going to do his part on stage. Wow, just playing so great, I can't say enough about it.

    I think the band was hurt commercially during this timeframe, because Ed wasn't happy and smiling Eddie. He was more like "take no shit, Eddie", and almost angry Eddie. Nobody wants to see that.

    He does seem to be playing with vigor, but he sounded much smoother from '91-'95.

    I stumbled across that footage a few weeks ago on Youtube . Also some really cool stuff from roughly 1991-93 . It's all killer footage that I'd never seen before ...

    Regarding Eddie in the above clips ? I thought he was blazing on the 1998 tour . EVH was really playing with a gunslinger attitude - sort of . He made a lot of his older licks/songs come alive again . I also really appreciated the different and varied approach on VH III . I know I'm in the minority , yet I don't care . I like what I like ...

    I remember seeing that clip years back.
    Eddie certainly was playing great!

    One I Want is still my favorite song off of VH3. Sounded great live!!

    Agreed. I have a boot of the combo Feel Your Love Tonight/Dance the Night Away...during Feel Your Love Tonight, the man was just flat out rocking. I remember it was playing in my office and one of my coworkers who didn't care for Van Halen came in and said - Holy Shit, whether the band is screwed up or not, nobody can ever accuse Eddie of not playing his instrument. (This was pre-2004 )
