lol ok. now go look for the interview of RR girlfriend at the time and see what she has to say
about what RR said and felt at the time about EVH. its very eye opening her quotes.
eddie said he read some interviews where randy said everything he did he learned from Eddie.
so i guess you pretty much gotta take Randys word for it now dont you? Eddie did too i guess.
its all a butt hurt play on words. according to the video even Randy confesses EVH got the ball rolling.
nobody in his right mind would have came out and said they were copying "the compitition" now would they.
Randy danced around the question with class i give him that respectivly. start at 1:36 and pay special attention at 2:07
but no Eddie was out in
the game yrs before Randy was so no they didnt all come out at the same time. the answers are all right there
in this video you linked up. sure it was very arrogent of Eddie but what do you expect from a kid his age
turning the world upside down? if you really listen to the video you brought, i dont have to defend EVH at all.
Randy did that already. but again i dont know why or what made you bring this topic up when we werent even talking
at all about either one of them. the understanding escapes me still. but as i stated before, its a dead horse
for me but wanted to give you a quick second (respectively) to bring the video i knew you would bring as its everybodies go-to
for this type topic. :cheers:
Rick , sorry about the rant.

Looking at the myriad of ways to "boost", what is your favorite? I'm using a couple pedals now a Maxon 808 and my beloved OCD with gain down and volume up. I sometimes use the Boss EQ also but find it noisy. Looking at the EP booster or the Spark to take over the boost duty, but wanted some input from yoos all.
You've got good pedals, what is it you think youre missing in your boost tone?

Randy Rhoads was a hack who stole Eddie Van Halen's licks and technique while he couldn't fly a plane worth a shit.





And THAT is how you troll like a BOSS!

EDITED for even MORE BOSS TROLLING content!

Really kind of more of a special sauce kind of thing. That little extra sumptin sumptin :D. I guess like that Echoplex pre amp thing EVH did and many others or the pre amp in Angus's wireless set up. Or the Range master thing Rory and May did. you know "secret " sauce.
