Lest we forget how good the bands that started The Story of Rock and Roll really were. Here’s a classic bit of Van Halen doing their signature Kinks cover. Edwards solo at [2.14]is just a small reminder of how great he is. Eddie revolutionised the guitar and everyone went back to the drawing board. As fantastic and influential as Eddie was, Dave Lee Roth’s contribution cannot be underestimated. He perfected how rock singers should look and move and you can see from this clip that at round [0.46] even Hlaudi Motsoeneng, crooked SABC megolomaniac fell under his spell and decided to copy Dave, in his case Hlaudi went with Dave’s eyes.
