Terrible. My buddy was there. This was when he did that music for that porno. He was in rough shape in those days.

It's a double-whammy.  The worst Van Halen song performed in the worst way.

Best part- singer steps all over the resolve of the solo.

"Raise your hands motherfuckerz!!!!"

Mic slips out of the clip.

"Plop."

LOL

That singer obviously owns the book 101 Hair Metal Stage Poses.

 

I know I shouldn't like Eddie's performance but there's a sort of drunken majesty to it. It's like an inebriated spider spinning a web. Sure you get a strange geometry but there's also an off-putting beauty to it.

 

And yes, that drunken spider thing is totally real, man.

Anyway, back to the thread. Eddie's backyard version of Eruption.

This stuff is real.  He's really drunk, granted he was a major league alcoholic by this time and somehow functioned on stage.  What I find astounding is how he can play these complex solos even while drunk and then end up on the wrong note to end it on.  My theory is that he is really, really fucked up in these vids.  What you're witnessing is pure muscle memory.  He can play the parts in Eruption and Cathedral is in that as well.  When he's left to improvise, he's mostly fucking up.  That's when he hits things that are out of key.

Put this on and stand on 14th and Lexington.  I get 80% cut.  You better not hold out on me ho.  And no hand jobs, you're worth more than that.

He likes to troll me every once in awhile. Who knows why. Trolls don't need reasons to troll.

Your defense of Lindsey Stirling pushed him over the edge.

^^^ Touche!

 

Actually I don't remember defending her? What did I say? I do recall liking the fact that she used You Tube to build her career. That was relatively new at the time.

I just remember him getting pretty butthurt about her popularity and saying she was only popular because she used her looks/attractiveness to make a career.

Oh yeah. Vaguely recalling that now. I know he hates my Women That Play Guitar Well (AKA Chicks That Shred) thread. Why would anyone have to defend female musicians anyway? What's wrong with female musicians? Like male musicians never used their attractiveness as a career booster.

...And for the record there is no 14th and Lexington.

But if somehow there were, it would be 14th and Irving Pl. And there are no hookers there, not now anyway.  Just NYU and Parsons kids.
