    They're all great throughout the set; Lukather's on fire, but we don't often hear EVH playing the blues:



    ***

    It's hard to watch that set, because of what came shortly thereafter.

    It reminds me of how much I miss EVH. He, Lukather, and Sheehan had a lot of fun playing together.

    I was at this show. This was right after the MTV mess and Gary was announced as singer. There was a rumor flying around on local radio that Gary "might" make an appearance.
    Sings like a bird. Rocks like a pig.

    Is it me, or is Ed's guitar vocabulary the same tired bullshit.... He ceased being creative after F.U.C.K., unless you want to consider VHIII creativity.

    Was that the Munsters theme at the beginning?

    I have an audio boot of "Fire" from this show that is pretty stellar quality. Wish we had the whole show in that quality.

    I've never seen that. And never really seen Ed play like that. You can tell he's comfortable playing with Luke and Sheehan. We talked on here about Ed being a little stiff in that Paul Shaffer garage band thing, here he wasn't at all. Again - comfort level with the guys around him, which makes sense for a guy as insecure as Ed is.

    Only one missing is Alex on drums.

    Ed, Alex, Sheehan, and Lukather. Man, THAT is a side project I wouldve loved to see happen.

    There were moments of that...yes. Certain "themes" started in 1986, and were continually (over) recycled. But it was great seeing EVH having FUN.

    ***

    I do not know what happened to EVH after 1998. Please don't tell me it was "III;" everyone has at least one album that is unpopular, and if one album took the wind out of EVH's sails...wow. Plus, "III" was what...2.5 years after Balance came out? Balance was crazy popular; the accolades were all over the place. It wasn't as if the spread between Balance and III was 10-12 years, where it'd be hard to pick up where he left off.

    Moreover, since 2007, it's almost that when EVH was seen in public, it wasn't with other musicians. You'd see him with actors, comedians, at benefits...but jamming with other artists? Having fun? No.

    ***

    It was great seeing EVH jam with Sheehan and Lukather, and damn; heretofore I didn't realize Lukather's talent and ability.

    The cycle of addiction and substance abuse is what happened.

    I feel almost every thread about EVH in a jamming situation will have someone saying "he's recycling." But some of the live jamming in VH was pretty original, like stuff on LWAN. EVH is great playing in VH, but if you put him with jazz cats that always sit in with other players, or with session guys like Luke, he's gonna be less comfortable than those guys. EVH played most/all of his life with his brother, so he's been used to being in his comfort zone.

    What amp was he playing through? I imagine it was a 5150 but I don’t see one on stage unless it’s that mic’ed combo.
