He had the Ozzy moves down pretty good. Sounds kinda like Jello Biafra, though. At least on my phone, anyway.
I’d hit the new “Laurie” :dancenana:
Is that date right? Fully 2 years before the release of the VH1 album where EVH “invented” tapping?
He was doing tapping in 1970…so was Rick Derringer
Yeah, you can tell in the video that Zappa’s been doing that a while. Just funny how EVH got all the credit for stuff like that.
I just read a thing about Rick Derringer opening for Van Halen and he would play the tapping part from Eruption, then go into “You Really Got Me” It got him kicked off the tour, but it makes sense that he would be annoyed about some punk kid getting famous for a technique he’d already been doing for years.
Ronnie James Dio = Ronnie and the Red Caps here performing a cover of Ray Charles’ “What’d I Say” 1960
