What it means to be American.....I remember watching this, great interview
I saw them at the same show at the Cap Centre. 8th grade, my second concert ever. Went with my older brother and his burnout friends.Saw them twice. Once in 1982. That concert is on yoottoob (largo, md). I saw them again on that Monsters of Rock tour in 87?/88?. VH, Scorpions, Kingdom Come, Dokken, Metallica. etc.
He wasn't the guy who inspired me to take up the guitar, nor a major influence on my style- but he damned sure made me want to go out and grab my guitar and play every time I heard HIM play.
And I loved the vocal harmonies. Beach Boys for a new generation.
That’s one of my favorites of his (and to be honest I’m not a fan of most of his solos).Wonderful solo on 'Push....'. Also wasn't until fairly recently that I realized the opening solo on 'Dirty Movies' is with a slide. He could do anything.
Think about your life, and then your life after you heard Eruption.
I’ll bet that song made just as many players put down their guitars as it made people pick up the guitar.
It was when I first heard that song that I realized I would never, ever in my lifetime or in the the afterlife, be able to play guitar. It simply blew me the fuck away.I had that exact same thought word for word a couple hours ago. Too true.
