    Wow. You've got me on an Eddie Van Halen kick. Watched his interview with Piers Morgan and LL Cool J and also the factory tour of EVH Guitars. Really good stuff. :)

    His isolated guitar tracks are pretty impressive, as well.... Hard to believe he was doing this, with that sound, over 30 years ago

    His not very good with words though, i think he gets nervous behind mics...
    Those EVH guitars are insanely good! Played one and the neck has a crazy radius diameter that feels so good....you don't wanna put it down :D

    07:45, talks about the first time he meet Eddie, the sound/tone that he used in 78 was mind blowing.
    I often ask mom what the general buzz was like when they hit the scene, people couldn't believe that someone could play like that.

    It's a shame that kids these days missed out on amazing bands. Fucking amazing shit came from his fingers.
