    Check out the solo in this one, especially at the 3:00 mark ...

    "It's so lonely at the top because it's so crowded at the bottom" - Diamond David Lee Roth

    "The truth sounds like hate to those who hate the truth" - Todd Wagner

    "Women and Children First ... The REAL Van Halen III"

    Precious Time ( 1981) I love this solo at 2.57 , Neil Giraldo is a very good melodic player... at 3.30 perhaps sounds like EVH ..

    So true. Most copycats did their plagiarism in the solos but for this tune it’s in the fills etc.

    Here's one of my favorite songs from the Motels where you can hear the influence of EVH ...

    "It's so lonely at the top because it's so crowded at the bottom" - Diamond David Lee Roth

    "The truth sounds like hate to those who hate the truth" - Todd Wagner

    I’ve always thought Round and Round was a EVH tribute from Ratt
    SOME VH LINKS CLASSICS


    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.
    Ok I think that covers everything." Ziggysmalls

    "I sense that some of our newer passengers may be nervous due to the sudden turbulence. Please be seated, this is simply a normal part of the periodic ride.
    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.
    Those of you who have been on this ride before, the hottie in the mini will be around shortly with your drinks......." Red

    It does remind me an awful lot of Panama, even though Out Of The Cellar was released a mere 2-1/2 months after 1984. Out Of The Cellar was also released exactly 5 years to the day after Van Halen II.

    Nobody called him "a copycat". The EVH influence on the guitar licks in Blackout are obvious.

    Eric did, but that's fine. It's all subjective.

    I don't hear anything in there that sounds like EVH. They sound like guitar fills. Harmonics and dive bombs no longer just remind me of Ed. There are plenty of guys who do em', in their own way.

    There were plenty of guys who started doing them after Van Halen's debut album was released on 2/10/78.

    That's for sure. But lets not get into the 80's hair metal wankers, please.
