    Beauty is life when life unveils
    her holy face.

    But you are life and you
    are the veil.

    Beauty is eternity gazing at itself
    in a mirror.

    But you are eternity
    and you are the mirror.

    -Kahil Gibran

    Thanks. Never saw all of this. Never really liked what we all saw earlier. Seemed like both Ed and Sam didn't rehearse much.

    VH (especially with Sam) was never an unplugged type of band. Yes, I know there are exceptions, but I'd say that Dave/Ed could pull it off better. I don't mean this to turn into another Dave vs Sam thread, but at least Dave and Ed had "Could this be Magic?", "Ice Cream Man", "Stay Frosty".... Listening to Sam/Ed on, say the intro of "Take me back" just didn't seem to natural or a fit.

    With that said I always thought "Summer Nights" should have had an acoustic intro.

    I think they could have done a great job, had they actually been interested in doing "unplugged"

    I remember Ed saying in an interview that they had been approached multiple times about doing MTV Unplugged but "he wasn't an unplugged kind of guy" or something like that.

    That era could have done a great Unplugged, though, if they properly worked it up and put a little effort into it, unlike what they did with this show. As seen with them doing a bit of Cabo Wabo when they were doing the grand opening or whatever down there.

    And the older Dave era could have done a great one, too. But it wasn't a "thing" then.
    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -
