    Oooooooooohhhh, you're so hip and artsy, can I touch you?


    Honestly not trying to imply my "path" on the guitar was any better than anyone elses -- just trying to clarify that when the EVH thing "blew up" in '78-79, I was 10,000% not on-board with that craze. I didn't "get it" then, and i still don't.

    But that's just me; fiercely independent, anti-lemming and march to the beat of my own drummer.

    No doubt some great players bore out of the whole Eddie thing though; Vita Bratta, Nuno, Reb Beach ... the list goes on....

        It's hard to NOT like them! I dunno, those four guys together, were absolute magic, no denying that. Dave wasnt exactly a fantastic singer, but they created a **************** ton of distinctly memorable music together. The four of them were exactly what needed to be there to produce what they produced. **************** is timeless.

          I'm a big fan of every album they've put out except for III.

          The only reason I don't like III is that I literally can't understand anything Gary Cherone is saying. It's unintelligible.


          Unintelligible? Because he doesn't use sleazy lingo/sexual innuendos plus a lot of BABY BABY BABY in his lyrics?

            I've always liked them, even during the Sammy Hagar years. I still do.

              I like most DLR-era stuff a lot, even the new album, but I hate Van Hagar. Couldn't care less about Eddie's lead playing, but I think he's an awesome rhythm player.

              Also, Eruption is stupid.

                Me...even though they were the 1st concert I went to. 1984 Tour!




                Me too, except mine was during the 3 tour w/ Cherone. I like them, but I agree w/ the post that said only Americans seem to like them, despite 2 members being Dutch.

                  Like Sammy era a bit more than the DLR era.

                  Overall, like playing it far more than listening to it. I want to change to something else after about half a song ~ 2 songs. I can not bear a full album.

                    Love VH. Hate all the hairspray using eyeliner wearing douchebags who came after them.

                        While Eddie was a media sensation as a lead guitarist and due to the media forcing him down our throats he influenced a lot of players... just not a fan of his lead playing or their songs. He's a great rhythm guitarist, but not so much a great lead player to my ears.

                        I also hate AC/DC & LZ.

                          No, not unintelligent, I mean unintelligible as in it sounds like gibberish moonspeak. He might as well be speaking Swahili.

                            I tried to like it.
                            I enjoy eruption but beyond that its simply not for me.

                            No denying their abilities to write hooks and eddie's abilities and influence on guitar but its simply a band I am not capable of enjoying.


                            That is pretty much my take on VH as well...
