Don't bother yourself. They are talking about another heaven here. They're talking about Rockers' Heaven. IIf you must know this kind of heaven, then you must listen to the intro of Hell's Belll' and 'Highway to Hell''by AC/DC.
I understand him 'breaking on through to the other side' as the Doors put it but I don't know which Jimi he's supposed to be jamming with! Hendrix or Page?
As for Michael, he always preferred Slash to any other guitarist as shown at 1995 MTV Awards. They just sync seamlessly.
Rock and Roll is the genre that takes music from the blues into the black. Be wary of it.

I see that you know and enjoy your music.
Enjoy wink

Slash played the solo on DS and he also played on the video of Black or White (it was actually slash that played the riff that Macaulay Culkin was dancing to at the beginning of the video).

I often compare Eddie Van Halen's solo on Beat It and Slash's solo on DS, but I can't decide which I prefer.

Slash also played on Give In To Me, but it was a different guitarist on Dirty Diana.

Van Halen were very popular in the 1980s and early 1990s

Van Halen's version is unbeatable. Then Jennifer Batten took it to another level during the History tours of the 90s.

Eruption is pure class.

Van Halen was one of the biggest rock bands of the 1980s and this was one of their biggest hits. The instrumental version of this song was used in many TV shows in the 1980s and 1990s and it was also used in WWF wrestling. It is still used in football and it is played before every home game by Olympique Marseille and Brondby. It is also played anytime AC Milan scores a goal at the San Siro.

Segun Odegbami used it as the signature tune of his Serie A show in 1989.

You need to hear Jimi Hendrix, Mark Knopfler, Jimmy Page and David Gilmore then, there are others who are better than him self like Angus Young and Eric Clapton.

Yikes. I use to believe Slash was the person who played the guitar in all Michael Jackson's songs. Even his live performance.

There was his 30th anniversary celebration where Slash literally killed every song he played his guitar, especially the song before Billie Jean.
For me I believe Slash's solo on Give In To Me trumps it all. I didn't even think there's another Guitarist who's better than Slash. To me the person who came close is Steve Vai.

Whoever the guitarist is that played on Dirty Diana deserves a vacation in Heaven.
I was just a kid then. Never heard of the group before and didn't even know he existed until your thread. Now I know.

Nuff respect to Eddie Van Halen. Dude really rocks.


I swear,the guitar solo part on give it to me and dirty Diana makes me cum...its heavenly

Dear Sir or Madams, will you read my book?
It took me years to write, will you take a look?
It's based on a novel by a man named Lear
And I need a job
So I wanna be a paperback writer
Paperback writer



It's a dirty story of a dirty man
And his clinging wife doesn't understand
His son is working for the Daily Mail
It's a steady job
But he wants to be a paperback writer
Paperback writer


It's a thousand pages, give or take a few
I'll be writing more in a week or two
I could make it longer if you like the style
I can change it round
And I wanna be a paperback writer
Paperback writer


If you really like it you can have the rights
It could make a million for you overnight
If you must return it you can send it here
But I need a break
And I wanna be a paperback writer
Paperback writer


naptu2:
Let's take a little break.

I know that they have lots and lots of really very good songs (lots and lots and lots of really good songs) but this is my favourite. It's also so much fun to play and I taught myself to play this song in the early 1990s.


The video is also a lot of fun. See, it went like this:


John Lennon plays guitar.

George Harrison plays guitar

Paul McCartney plays bass

Ringo Starr sits and looks bored.

It's as if they forgot to bring Ringo's drums. grin

I found the tiny vinyl disc of that song in my parent's collection on the early '80s and I've been in love with it ever since.
Re: Eddie Van Halen Dies Of Cancer Aged 65 by naptu2: 4:27pm On Oct 07
This song saved me during a very difficult time. It feels like it's 1995 again and I'm belting it out.

Joseph1832 Do you remember Tour of Duty? It was shown on NTA2 Channel 5 from c1990-1993. This was its theme tune.


I ensured that my niece fell in love with this song in 2005, but not this version, that was Vanessa Carlton's cover version.

Really wonderful song. Love the guitar played in the song also.

I absolutely love the way the songs come in.

This is one of the greatest mashups ever. It's a perfect combination of four great songs. The producers wanted to use Aerosmith's 1973 hit Dream On, but they couldn't get permission to use it on time, so they used Eminem's Sing For The Moment (Sing For The Moment has samples from Dream On).


These are the four songs that are combined.


Oasis - Wonderwall (1995).

Eminem - Sing For The Moment (2002)

Greenday - Boulevard of Broken Dreams (2004)

Travis - Writing To Reach You (1999).



A DJ combined them (for his radio show) to create:

There are certain songs that must always be played back to back. For example, if you play Buju Banton's Make My Day you must play Mad Cobra's Legacy immediately after it.

These next two songs must always be played back to back. It's in the constitution.
Re: Eddie Van Halen Dies Of Cancer Aged 65 by naptu2: 6:08pm On Oct 07

We take a little detour and do a little rockin and rolling with the King.

I didn't post a video the last time I posted this song because I was looking for the version that's on the album, but I kept finding the version of the song that's in the movie. I have finally found what I'm looking for.

naptu2:
Memories. smiley

When I was a kid, we would take our positions before this song began and prepare to obey Elvis Presley's every command.

( "Du ke" in brackets = the beat of the drums).

I'm just going to jump to my favourite verse.


♪Well there ain't nothing wrong with the long-haired music
Like Brahms, Beethoven and Bach
Well I was raised with a guitar in my hand
And I was born to rock
Weeeeellllllll,


Come on everybody and turn your head to the left
(dum ke dum ke dum ke dum dum ke)
Come on everybody and turn your head to the right
(dum ke dum ke dum ke dum dum ke)
Come on everybody take a real deep breath
And repeat after me
I'm love ah my baby
I love ah my baby
Hey, hey, hey and my baby loves me



Come on everybody and snap your fingers now
(dum ke dum ke dum ke dum dum ke)
Come on everybody clap your hands real loud
(dum ke dum ke dum ke dum dum ke)
Come on everybody take a real deep breath
And repeat after me
I love ah my baby
I love ah my baby
Hey, hey, hey and my baby loves me


Come on everybody and whistle this tune right now
Come on everybody and stomp your feet real loud
Come on everybody take a real deep breath
And repeat after me
I love ah my baby
I love ah my baby
Hey, hey, hey and my baby loves me♫

Check out the screaming girls in the audience. That's one of the reasons that John didn't wear his glasses (if I remember correctly), so that he wouldn't see them.
