    Default The Best Eddie Van Halen Solos Tournament - Sammy Era+ (Round 4)

    Van Cherone is eliminated, and "Poundcake" just tops "Good Enough" as we move on to the next round. And I reiterate, "5150" is the studio version only (not busting that one person's balls, but it's easy to subconsciously vote that way).

    Voting ends Saturday, 11:00 PM EST:

    Dreams vs. Mine All Mine
    Top of the World vs. Poundcake
    "5150" vs. Aftershock
    Pleasure Dome vs. A.F.U. (Naturally Wired)

    Don't get all the hate for the studio version of 5150. That solo is awesome!

    Agree with PoP, even though LWAN is better, the album version solo for "5150" is still terrific.

    Mine All Mine (the solo in Dreams is perfect and will prob go to the finals, but the MAM solo is a personal fav)
    Poundcake (kinda surprised it got this far)
    5150 (see you in the semis)
    AFU (it shouldn't be, but this is prob the end of the road for AFU)

    "Sammy was the key. He was the guy who took us to a new, higher plateau with Van Halen." Michael Anthony

    Sammy Hagar did the probable. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    "It's 1978 and you start listening to this! Goddamn, it must have been like an atomic explosion in your mind! Dantres on YouTube reacting to I'm the One.

    Pleasure Dome - the whole song is a drum and guitar clinic. Never mind Ed's solo on this song, his rhythm playing on this song is insane also !!

    Agree on PD. Never understood all the hate it gets. Since the Feelin solo got inexplicably bounced, Pleasure Dome would be my next pick for best solo of the Sam era.
