Listening to "Pride" "Big Game" and "Mane Attraction" tonight with a few TNT albums mixed in.  "Tell No Tales" and "Realized Fantasies."   Ronnie Le is better than Eddie Van Halen and Vito Bratta put together but no respect of course.

I love Vito Bratta and the man gets no respect.  He's the Rodney Dangerfield on the electric and acoustic guitars!!

He surely did rip off the great Eddie Van Halen, but man I love his tone minus the "brown noise."

I think you told me about "brown noise" years ago on here in some Eddie Van Halen Thread I wrote.  Probably a thread I wrote about how "Fair Warning" is my favorite Van Halen record of all time.

Anyway, I'm not going to waste anymore bandwidth here on a poll.  

We all know Eddie blows Vito away.

However, in my musical manic mind,  VITO BRATTA RULES!!!!

If Mike Tramp just didn't whine like such a little bitch in the songs.  

Great band.  Tramp Stamp Motorbike Mike ruined it.

I've liked "White Lion", and listened to their music, too.  I've seen them, and "Cinderella" as a double bill performing in concert in person, and I've thought the both of them were great.  I haven't, and don't like all of the hair metal bands, and groups that there are, were, and have been.  I knew the term, and word phrase "Brown sound" was accurate, and correct, and not "Brown noise".

It's not "brown noise," it's "brown sound." It describes a guitar sound that's thick, not lacking in midrange, smooth, warm...brown!. Brown sound is a good thing, and Eddie's tone on Fair Warning is one of the best examples of it.

They were the ladies who waited underneath the stage to satisfy the members of Def Leppard during the Hysteria tour.

As a Primus freak I was very upset when this album came out.  Brain was on this record and Tim Alexander quit.  I was very sad!

"Thunder And Lightning" is a great cut!!!

You are funny hunny!  Sorry!  It was a pun off the lead singer of White Lion.  His name is Mike Tramp.

But, there is such a thing as "brown noise". It's similar to pink or white noise, but at a lower tone. Great for background noise when sleeping.

When I hear the words "brown noise" I think of the episode of South Park where the kids find out there's a musical note they can hit when they perform at the national recorder concert that will cause everyone who hears it to crap their pants when it's played.

Hahaha!  Ford J and BC! You are all hilarious!   Love that I make all of these thread up for fun!!

So Ford.


Confession:

I need white noise when I sleep.

I have a fan in my bedroom and when I travel I bring a fan with me always.  


I'm my biggest fan.  LOL!


Sorry, bad joke.

GO A'S!

Kidding.
