If you like Eruption, give a listen to Eddie's acoustic solo instrumental Spanish Fly.

Attention all users!!!! All that noise is coming from a guitar by the way!!!! VH is a myth !

According to the Aerosmith book walk this way, when joe perry heard eruption and found out Eddie was 18 years old he wanted to quit playing guitar. I've said it many times, there's guitar playing before Eddie and after. He changed everything about the electric guitar with the release of the first van halen record.
