The ego killed him and the band, but he sure put out some amazing music while they were still together.
Sammy Hagar said he (Sammy) would work on a guitar solo for months & play it front of Eddie, staring intensely at his fingers & breaking into a sweat he was concentrating so hard. Then Eddie, after one listen, would play it back for him, note for note, with a big smile on his face, never looking at his fingers & would make it sound better, pretty much replicating a scene from Amadeus.- He did it with such ease and comfort. He almost appears nonchalant about it when he's just shredding solos - as if his mind, soul, and hands were way ahead of the beat, just waiting for it to catch up. Maybe that's actually what was going on, but it is remarkable.
