    Loads of stuff on Youtube, they sound pretty good!

    i guess Dave told the audience that this would be the last date in the US, for a long time.
    Looks like JD might have caught the final show, though i hope not.

    I like this little soundcheck clip pre-show, for some reason.

    Wow, Dave sounds much improved (maybe he DOES read my complaints!)
    Also read that they got a whole new sound crew, hmmm....
    Edward is on fire, he is reaching these bizarre heights that i never thought possible, at his age.
    It is just tremendous how well he is playing.

    I love the look between Al & Ed in this video, followed by Wolfie having difficulty putting
    his bass on the stand...

    Ed is in such good form these last 18 months, it's inspiring.

    Thanks for posting the videos , UG and GRAZI !!!

    I'm just astonished at the level Eddie is at these days . He's on a higher plane than most , and has even surpassed his old self , in a way .
    Eddie's been called "the original guitar ninja" , and i think it's a fitting moniker . Just incredible stuff

    Looking forward to hearing JD's first hand account of the show .

    I'm also hoping that the lack of anymore US shows , is a sign of new recordings being worked on . ADKoT was not a fluke ... These guys knew what they were doing .
    A followup album and tour would be fantastic . The band in is full stride and are hitting all the right notes , so to speak .

    Thanks for posting the videos. The band sounds great. Dave is sounding better and Eddie is....in-fucking-sane. All the great ones make it look so easy.

    Ed is almost like Dweezil in the sense that he tore down everything, and rebuilt his technique.
    Like Dweezil, i see a new approach in his picking & fretting hands, a more economical approach.
    His speed and articulation is insane, due to this fresh approach.

    And to be able to play like this after quitting decades of alcohol abuse!
    How are his hands so still and not shakey?
    Recovering from that, i would have been happy with an Eddie at half speed.

    I now completely believe all the stories of Ed, Al & Wolf rehearsing, during that long period where
    nothing was happening with VH.
    All three guys came out with ridiculous chops, and they are getting even better!

    JD and I were biding our time and being patient , while a lot of others were naysaying . Haha
    We knew that the VH machine would be rolling again , but even we were astounded by how great the results were !!!

    I couldn't be more impressed with the last album , and the live clips from around the world . Perfect

    There is a great video for "Unchained" on the VHND . VERY close to the stage , and with clear audio.
    Killer footage !!!

    Crap! Although I pretty much knew they weren't gonna do anything to make up the dates they canceled,it still fuckin' sucks!! (If) there's another tour I hope NE Ohio gets some love.Otherwise '07 will go down as my last.
