    Default Great rare interview with Eddie jamming on guitar and talking solos and techniques!



    From 1979, with Steve Rosen

    My favorite line:

    "Sure there's certain licks that I do consciously...and...the best ones usually come out when I'm not there!

    So, I can't show you those... because I don't know em!"

    Wonder what happened to Steven Rosen. He was EVH's go to guy for interviews in the early days. Surprising he's not coming out with his own VH book.

    I've heard it before, yet always cool to listen to Eddie demo those ultra fast licks!
    Wonder how long it took him to teach Mike the decending bass run at the start of LUTS?

    Hey James, do you really have 5,150 likes? Coincidence or purpose?

    Cool clip! It felt like I was there hanging out with them. I wish it was longer!

    I read somewhere a while back that they had a falling out, or grew apart--something like that. They seemed to be really good friends though.

    Rosen was writing the definitive Biography on Edward, around 1985.
    Even Guitar world featured a lengthy cover story & interview, that was based on the book to come.
    For whatever reason, Ed pulled the plug on the project.

    He was a flake even back then!
