    Default Underrated EVH Solos

    We all know Eddie has come up with some of the most amazing and awe-inspiring solos. Whether they be instrumentals or additions to songs, some solos are just incredible. But there are some that don't get enough credit. For me, songs like...

    Ice Cream Man
    D.O.A.
    Hang 'Em High
    House of Pain
    Good Enough
    Judgement Day
    Aftershock

    ...feature very underrated solos. What would you say are some of Ed's most underrated?
    In and out. I didn't even make that pun on purpose.

    Feelin's solo is VERY underrated, agreed. What a ball-buster.

    Also worthy of more note:

    Well to me the best solo he has ever done is the outro to Drop Dead Legs. Biggest Holdworth influence is right there. Not sure if that is underappreciated though.

    Other ones
    Light Up the Sky - Very aggressive
    Can't Get that Stuff No More.

    Add "Not Enough" to the list. I really liked that solo because you can tell it was blues influenced.

    YES! it`s one of his best! That solo IMO is the perfect mix of shred and bluesy feel. Just awesome!

    Pleasure Dome - This solo is absolutly fantastic...it may not be considered underrated but its one of my favourite EVH solo's

    Can't Get This Stuff No More - Eddie had such a refined sound in this song and its is just brilliant. I always enjoy the solo to this song.

    One I wan't - I know VH3 is not a well-like VH album, but the solo to this song is bad ass to the max. Just a killer solo, great feel and sound and the best one on that album.
