Van Halenesque…

A little over 20 years ago, I got to watch Van Halen’s “Live Without a Net” on VHS and my interest in guitar changed, shifted, exploded.

My perception of the (electric) guitar was altered on a deep level, probably the same way so many of my friends and guitar fans felt the first time they watched Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Chuck Berry, or Steve Vai.

My immediate understanding was that Eddie was a great rhythm player, someone who could fill in songs with riffs, progressions, solos, everything that would make a song fuller, bigger.
Now, THAT was what I wanted to do.

At a certain point of the New Haven concert (renamed “New Halen” for the occasion), my jaw literally dropped down for a few minutes, when Eddie started playing his soon-to-be-named “316” guitar solo.

That was the turning point in my guitar playing (sorry for the cliché!)… this was circa 1993, I think.


Here go a few photos of the band, with a special focus on the guitarist…


He is, in fact, “the last guitar god“.
