I too became a fan. If you listen to Elvis for an hour or two I think you will become a fan too. I alway knew I’d paint The King of Rock and Roll someday.

Van Halen was huge during my high school days and I say them several times. I had a buddy who was a really good guitarist and of course the Holy Grail for a guitar player is to play EVH’s “Eruption” It was initially a warm up exercise but became his most popular part of his guitar solo.
