Van Halen Eruption
Van Halen Eruption is a Guitar Solo from the first Van Halen album often cited as the best instrumental guitar solo of all time.
Rolling Stone magazine Issue 1054 asked Eddie Van Halen how Eruption cammade it on the first Van Halen Album: “We recorded our first record on Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California and we were warming up for a weekend gig at the Whisky. And I was just rehearsing, and Donn Landee happened to record it. Eruption was never planned to be on the record. So the take on the record was a total freak thing. It was just an accident. He happened to be rolling tape.”
Eddie Van Halen insists that there is a mistake in this song near the beginning. “Whenever I hear Eruption, I always think, Man, I could’ve played it better,” he said. This is a great argument against perfectionism.
