    Default VH covering Elvis .

    I got the news today that my last remaining grandparent passed away . She has a good long life , so it's for the best .
    She was a huge Elvis fan . That was her favorite and her idol .

    I used to imagine setting up my Roland Cube practice amp and jamming her the early VH version of 'Heartbreak Hotel' , but sadly , never got around to it ...

    That's why I posted this in the first place , in the music section . If anyone wants to post a video of VH performing that cover version ? I'd be grateful

    Cheers

    Thanks to all of you !
    Much appreciated .

    Hope it's an ok excuse to listen to VH covering that Elvis classic . Love their versions , and 'Grammy' would approve !

    I'm sure the band in heaven was there to meet her. RIP
    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.
