    Just to hear that on the radio, in that moment, was like, "HOW does somebody come up with that AND execute it?"
    Hendrix wasn't even remotely on the same plane.
    I was at the market yesterday, and DOA played on the musak, but it was really VH, not some freaky instrumental version. And it wasn't the radio either.

    There I was, pushing my cart through the aisles, singing along w/Diamond Dave, people lookin' at me like I was some weirdo....did I care? Nope. I kept singin', big smile on my face, head bopping along to Alex's beat....

    You got Edward slammin' on both guitar & Bass, while Alex just has such a killer drum sound happening.
    It woulda been a great, great instrumental on it's own.
    It's funky, it's heavy, it's mean.

    But, lyrically, the song does kind of stumble.
    Dave sounds good, but the chorus & vocal melody seems kind of not quite on par with the musical end.

    I can see what you're sayin.'

    whoa...not sure I can agree with anything in this quoted post (haha) but everyone is entitled to their own opinion

    BUT...even though it's impossible to do (name your favorite #1 VH song).... I often point to DIRTY MOVIES as my all-time fav VH song ever.
    Musically it's insane and i have no problem with vocals or melodies. FW is the greatest album, of course.

    but I do love TJ too.
