    Some fans on Rotharmy (Von Halen-twonabomber) met John5 , they asked him if it was him on guitar ? John 5 said that it wasn't him !

    It wouldn't shock me if it was DLR, it's a pretty subdued electric guitar part, he's been playing acoustic for over forty years, I think it would be silly presumption on our parts to think that he doesn't know his way around an electric somewhat.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Yes , the electric parts are simple (bends) ..that doesn't mean that it's bad .. when you play blues , you play with your heart, soul.. it's not necessary to play like Malmsteen

    Thanks for the info!
    Myself and some others were wondering if this was one of those tunes that Roth & John 5 had recorded.

    There's a beauty in simple guitar parts at times.

    There is a Joe Walsh solo on one of the songs on the new Foo Fighters album, and he only played a few notes, but it was soulful and beautiful and was a nice lesson than many times in music, less is more.

    Just listened to this song again, it came up in my shuffle.

    Man, I never thought I would ever say this..."I wish David Lee Roth would leave Van Halen."

    Not because I want someone else to be the singer in Van Halen, just that I want someone, ANYONE related to this band that has some creativity left in their soul to be able to release songs and albums.
