    Default Blues Bustin' Mambo Slammers Question

    Since there is virtually no info on his '95 Vegas residency band other than the Van Halen Encylopedia and a couple other things, does anyone know who his guitarist during that time was?

    I know he had Edgar Winter in the band, but I also remember reading he had some or most of the Miami Sound Machine as his backing band. I heard Nile Rodgers might have been his guitarist, but I think that was just for the one-off group he used for the brass version of "Ice Cream Man" he did around that time, not the Mambo Slammers. I can't see Nile Rodgers doing that, but Edgar Winter did so who knows?

    And is it the "Non-Stop Blues Bustin' Mambo Slammers" or just the "Blues Bustin' Mambo Slammers" lol?

    I, unlike many, actually fucking liked that shit. "Living in America," "Lido Shuffle,"...nothin' but yeah.

    Never mind, forgot about that article from The Inside. Someone named "A.J." played guitar. Can close.

    Wish there were better quality boots from then. I'd crank the shit out of "Living in America" and "Lido."

    I think it was the "Non-stop, No-Holds, Blues-busting, Backyard Mambo Slammers BBQ Thing". Possibly.
