    Hoping these see an official release. Gene Simmons gave the tracks to Eddie within the last couple of years in exchange for the usage of Eddie and Alex's work on Gene's KISS demos that he released in his box set.

    My tribute to Eddie Van Halen...

    Fully poseable 1/6 scale custom action figure.







    Yes, I do have 1/6 scale white/black Nike shoes. However, I am using them for another figure I am commissioned to complete. The hair is intentionally exaggerated for display purposes. I may thin it at a later date.

    Here is Eddie in action wearing this outfit from a newly uncovered grail from Italy!

    Cool! You did a good job getting the striping on the guitar right!

    I did the weathered-effect striping on the Converse shoes. The guitar is an official EVH Christmas ornament You might notice the hole in the headstock where the hanger goes.

    Damn, Gruno. That's awesome.

    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    Really nice work, Gruno. The action lines are right on.

    But, I gotta say, that "So this is Love" video pretty much represents all that was bad about VH. It's hilariously tacky.

    I dunno, I kinda dig the dinosaurs. I think that might be the first time I've ever heard the studio version of that song (no, I never owned Fair Warning, I just know the live clips of that, Unchained, and Hear About It Later that MTV used to play back in the day).

    Nothing they liked better than tacky or cheesy. That said, "Unchained" is a killer riff.

    Eddie did come up with some great riffs. "Ain't Talkin' 'bout Love" is another.
