Eddies best sound was the first VH album...It was all down hill from there.

 

VH2 was good as well, but your right not as good as the first one.

It was his first sponsorship that killed him (jackson?) he couldn't use the frankenstrat anymore, he had to build a new one.

It was all down hill from THERE.

Go and try to nail Brian May's tone... then come back and show off ... (J/K!)

Sorry to make you GAS even more, but if you want Brian May's tone..... check this out. Don't worry, Thunder! At least you already have the Vox AC30!

I want to pull my hair out every time I hear "Jump"

All you young 'uns don't know this' date=' but I was THERE.

 

New Years, waiting to ring in 1984 at a big party.

MTV was rattling on and on about the "New Van Halen album, we have an exclusive first track and video TONITE!"

 

This is gonna be WAY different than anything you EVER heard from Van Halen.

All us rockers are thinking "Yeah, right, whatever, Eddie's already done it all....."

 

Then the video starts out with that cheesy keyboard "What the...?' and were waiting for the song to actually begin.

It WAS the song!!

 

Jump.

Might as well jump.

 

[b']WHAT THE FxCK ARE THEY TALKING ABOUT?[/b]

 

That, sadly, was the beginning of the end for rock music, rock videos and rock guitar gods.

 

ZZ Top went synth with Eliminator just before that, I thought they would be the last band to fall into that trap.

Nope, EVH became a keyboard god.

A couple years later Def Leppard came out with Hysteria, and rock radio was saturated with all this sugary sh!t.

 

Twenty years later, where are we now?

I STILL hate that sh!t.

 

Buy a keyboard and see if you can nail Eddie's Jump tone....
