    Has anyone out there in Van Halen-land ever heard Eddie play the Star Spangled Banner ala Jimi?
    I've heard Page play it. I've heard Vai play it,but what about Eddie?

    I think that would be incredible to hear!!!!!!

    Can anyone confirm if the banner from Biloxi '91 is indeed Eddie(the chopped up version...then you hear sambo say,"God bless America..."

    Any other versions or appearances?

    It's just Jimi, Loons. I remember them playing Jimi's version before the shows back in 91. Eddie could wing it no doubt, if he had to in a pinch. Out

    Thanks Track 5--I had a feelin' that that was the case. I think Ed played a nanosecond of the SSB 5-21-92 The 2nd Anniv. Cabo Wabo--but it is just a glimpse,barely even a riff. Vai did an amazing version of it I think on the Skyscraper tour. Out(always wanted to do dat).

    Mikey on Ultra Bass did the line "by the dawn's early light."

    I can play the line "my country tis of thee" on my high E string. F-F-G-E-F-G.

    Loons, or anyone else. Didn't Steve Vai play a version of Star Spangled Banner on Mtv during a Rock and Jock softball game? I'm probably wrong, but I seem to recall that. Anyway, out.

    SRV played it a little as well. Never heard of Eddie playing the whole thing. Maybe just a note or two from it thrown into his solo at one time or another.
