Is Eddie drunk?…I think so.
Is Eddie happy?…Yup.

Off stage…the band twern't talking.
At least DLR and EVH/AVH weren't.

Check out Michael Anthony's ultra-cool Rickenbacker 4001.
I have to say…Van Halen blew it with him. He's the most
solid constant they had - delivered each and every day.

ok, wow, hearing that song live, man, evh can play the sh*t out of that guitar...kind of fun seeing the 5150 guitar new!
it's also funny, w/o the studio classroom sounds, that actually the song still works, they just sound like they are having fun, maybe it helps that ed is just amazing.
the other funny thing: when they go to the solo we get shots of MA!!!!
it sort of reminds me of all the live hendrix footage, whenever he is playing something amazing they pan away to the drummer or bassist!!!

that was a fun blast from the past....it's sort of sad that the band imploded not even a year later...but i am happy they are back and released ADKOT....

Call me a guitar "homer", but the show the guitarist during the solo.

Especially if it's Ed. We all love Mike, but...

Way to totally miss EVH on that solo lol. Wonder what amp he's playing through? Sounds like Ed no matter what.

I would really like to have heard VH take whatever they were doing on this clip and push it to the extreme instead of everything else they ever did.
