"Pride & Joy" as written by and Stevie Ray Vaughan....
Well you've heard about love givin' sight to the blind
My baby's lovin' cause the sun to shine
She's my sweet little thang....She's my pride and joy
She's my sweet little baby....I'm her little lover boy

Yeah I love my baby....Heart and soul
Love like ours won't never grow old
She's my sweet little thang....She's my pride and joy
She's my sweet little baby....I'm her little lover boy

Yeah I love my lady....She's long and lean
You mess with her....You'll see a man get mean
She's my sweet little thang....She's my pride and joy
She's my sweet little baby....I'm her little lover boy

Well I love my baby....Like the finest wine
Stick with her until the end of time
She's my sweet little thang....She's my pride and joy
She's my sweet little baby....I'm her little lover boy

Yeah I love my baby....Heart and soul
Love like ours won't never grow old
She's my sweet little thang....She's my pride and joy
She's my sweet little baby....I'm her little lover boy

    General CommentThe Great thing about Rock is what it means to everyone individually... The discussion taking place here is completely unneccessary... As Far as I can tell... Muzzy simply listed some guitarists that he felt were better then Eddie Van Halen... And he is right because that is how he feels... It's not like their is some sort of world recognized Grading or scoring that takes place... What does the guitarist mean to you... Does he blow you away... People tell me that Chet Atkins is perhaps the best ever... It's not my cup of tea so he's not in MY rankings... Neil Young has said that there is no one in the same Room as Jimi Hendrix and there never will be... Personally, I think Jimi is a little over the top for me... BUT THAT IS JUST MY OPINION... Yet I love some of his songs... Little Wing is perhaps one of all time favorites...

    Stevie is without doubt one of personal favorites... He personally saved me from life as a Foreigner Fan... The 80's in MY OPINION was a horrible decade for music... Synth was dominating the landscape and here comes Stevie Ray... A light in the Darkness... The First time I heard Stevie I put my Foreigner Records away for good at age 18 and I realized that Rock and Roll had another level... From there I Found Zeppelin, The Who, Jimi, Everyone... Stevie caused me to Join a Band... Start a career in radio... When I think back... Stevie Ray Vaughan may have been the reason that my life is so heavily invested in Rock and Roll to this day at age 39... That's what Stevie meant to me...

    Who's the greatest ever... Who Knows... It's doesn't matter because everyone has an opinion...

    So, ZPS2 you really should stop acting like a know it all and be respectful... It's great that you play Guitar just like the other million or so who can strum but it doesn't make you an expert on how Muzzy should feel... Be respectful...

    General CommentI love how this song starts out, just a kick ass song. It's hard to beleive that Stevie Ray died so damn young too.

    General Commentyou know what else is so fucking unbelievable? people rate an amazing guitarist nonetheless, eric clapton, number one. SRV is probably THE BEST. Hendrix ranks one in enfluence, not skill, and number two in enfluence is Van Halen. You can count on that to the bank.

    General CommentI would put someone like Kirk Hammet, Randy Rhodes, or Dimebag Darell above Eddie Van Halen. Dunno why, probably because that kinda music is a bit....Gay? Not that he isn't an awesome guitar player, it's just he played cheesey songs.

    General Commentis that right? hey bud, read the guitar world, if you don't have it i can scan it for you. dimebag and hammet were inspired by EVH. oh shit, wait a second, randy fucking rhodes fingertapped too. who made that popular? EVH. man all those guitarists you listed fucking idolize EVH. i didn't say he was number 2 in skill, he is number 2 in enfluence. man he's inspired os many people. me personally, when i was younger, and i first heard eruption i was like "whoa, shit man, this is awesome! i have to learn how the hell to play that" man that's what most people say, including dime kurt and zakk wylde. anyway what i wanted to add was that eric clapton shoukld have died with SRV, they were touring when the heli accident happened, and to eric's advantage he was late for the ride.

    General CommentEruption has WAY too many effects, a delay to make it sound like he's playing faster than he really is.

    No need to get all pissy, not my fault Van Halen played gay music ;P

    General CommentJust when I think I've read the stupidest post ever, you go and post another. You should offer your posting style to hospital operating theatres as a highly-effective alternative to unconsciousness-inducing medications.

    Keep typing. Maybe, someday, you'll randomly type something semi-intelligent. I see you've set aside this special time to humiliate yourself on the Internet. If you knew what you're talking about, you'd be dangerous. As Abba Eban so aptly said: "His ignorance is encyclopedic."

    You are about as entertaining as watching grass grow in a windowbox. What do you do for a living? You are living, aren't you? Genius does what it must, talent does what it can, and you had best do what you're told, you dyslexic lobotomy patient. Maybe you wouldn't read like such a pathetic loser if that pimple on your ass hadn't turned out to be a brain tumor; if your weren't so fat that when you stand on the weighing scale, it reads: "Sorry, we don't weigh livestock.", or if you didn't have a face that makes Medusa look like a supermodel. No, come to think of it, you would.

    To sum up: I'd rather pass the world's largest kidney stone than read another post from you.

    General Commenti think the last guy had it summed up, or was he talking to me? oh well.. just to get it straight the ONLY effects in ERUPTION are the following:

    distortion, reverb, slow-phase shifting(aka delay)... may I ask do you play guitar? if so how can you downgrade eruption? can YOU personally play it up to speed(even though i was wrong, he is playing slow with delay to sound fast)? or have you even heard eruption before i posted it? nice try jackass...
