    Default Jack White to honor Ed on SNL tonight

    Jack White wrote on instagram that he's going to use a guitar Ed designed for him and tribute the evening to him. Not playing a VH song, likely a White Stripes song as they have a greatest hits coming out, but still should be cool. Worth watching.

    That is cool..I know he caught a lot of shit around here in that rolling stone best player deal years ago and being ahead of Ed. He'd be the first to say he isn't close

    That is very thoughtful of Jack White. It would be cool if SNL replayed Eddie's appearance from 1985 when he jammed with G. E. Smith.

    Very good. I've seen him play his EVH in some video, in the past. He said something to the tune of, he was tired of fighting guitars, to get them to do what he wanted them to.

    Cool. I'm thinking SNL will maybe replay when Ed was there. It will be much better to see that than the political crap they are doing now.
    Right here I say....

    I finally had time to plug in and play my new Bumblebee tonight.

    It's awesome.

    I still suck.

    Edit: Took me about a minute to figure out that I had to unlock it to tune it. Yes, I've never had a really nice guitar before.

    You couldn't resist, could you?

    I saw the Raconteurs twice in 2019 and Jack came out one night wearing what I dubbed the J. Crew Spring fashion line for men. Oddly enough, it worked on him.

    Jack played an Eddie inspired tapping lick during the solo of his second performance, and the played a clip of Stompin 8H right before end credits.

    Here's a really good quality version of Eddie on SNL in 1985.

    So here it is, a short tapping lick:



    2:43 mark of the video.
    "If it sounds good, it is good" - Eddie Van Halen, 1981

    "If you ever speak to me like that again, you better be wearing a cup" - EVH, 1996

    "Stupid neighbors called the cops/Now the party's over/Angry housewife wants my name/Tell her it's 'Ben Dover'"

    Yeah, and itís not Exactly Jackís fault where the Rolling Stones morons put him.

    Iíve been pretty obsessed with the Ed Tributes since the shock hit. Everyone I have seen, even guys like VAI, Townsend, Rage Against the Machine guitarist (blanking on his name) and many more, all talk about only 2 guys. Hendrix and Eddie. Literally 95% of that talk is just comparing those two ďand some talented players who were in-between but werenít game changersĒ And it seems most have Eddie at the top when you factor in his virtuosity, song writing, soul/blues/feel, new technique when everyone was sure how to play had maxed out and his underrated rhythm playing, etc... Also amazing how much love he gets now for his added skill of playing synthesizers.

    Ed seems to be ahead of Hendrix by a lot. Important this is NOT writers opinions but players opinions. Rolling stone has zero credibility on these matters. Didnít they have him much much lower on the list until their office was almost firebombed by their readers for their stupidity? Must have been for something like they believed Ed to be a second amendment conservative or politically unworthy. Politics and entertainment donít mix or shouldnít... Nothing else made sense why they had him so far down their list...

    I love that they played the brief snippet of Stompiní 8H. Wish they wouldíve played more. That was one of the earliest videos I saw of Ed and Iíve always been so fond of it. Itís also now the last EVH tune I learned and covered before his passing.
