    Lemonjelly37. It was probably EVH that showed PG how to do it but bottom line is...who cares! Great song. VH still the greatest.

    Not a bad song from Van Hager, I guess. Never was a fan after DLR left.

    This is one of the best speed metal songs of all time and Van Halen aren't really a speed metal band

    Everybody's idol was Eddie, including me. He will always have master status, but he hasn't learned a new lick since Women and Children First and he's never ventured out of his little niche like the big dogs do(Vai, Gilbert, Gazza, Buckethead, etc). And yes, I am the second worst axe player on the planet..just ahead of you EVHrulez.

    EVHrulez should relax there and get his facts straight. The 'drill' bit from Paul Gilbert (Mr. Big) was released in April '91. This tune not until June, a couple of months later. Regardless who initiated (it's possible Paul or Eddie had done so years ago), Paul Gilbert wins by release date.

    I love the drums during the guitar solo so much, like the little change up in the rhythm... So tasty.

    I think Eddie was emulating his Lamborghini with that power drill, without a doubt.
