From what I remember Vito stop playing for a while because he had some kind of problems with his hands or something ?!Hey, any of you guys into Vito Bratta's guitar playing? I always thought he was even better than Eddie tbh.
First and foremost, back in the 80's, there were a lot of us that referred to him as Vito Van Halen, an obvious comparison to Eddie, even though he really didn't sound or play that much like Eddie. Vito was a hell of a player. I always liked White Lion, but from a talent perspective, he was FAR better than anyone and everyone else in the band. The guy was oozing with talent.Hey, any of you guys into Vito Bratta's guitar playing? I always thought he was even better than Eddie tbh.
yeah, I've heard that as well. Maybe not this exact quote, but something similar.^^^ I was just reading an article with Mike Tramp and i guess Vito and Mike do not get along!
“The thing is that I would not wanna play with Vito Bratta for anything in the world, I wouldn’t wanna spend any time with him… We have not talked for many, many years. There’s nothing to talk about. He has nothing to add to the table, and I will let him rest in peace. Because I don’t need him and I will not go back and do that."
Yep, Vito owns the record label that owns all of White Lion's first few albums. I think this is part of where Tramp and him don't get along because Tramp has wanted to either buy back some of his rights and Vito wouldn't do it, or something like that. Tramp sold his rights back in the 90'sI also read that Vito took Tramp to court and Vito owns the name WHITE LION.
I totally agree with you! Grunge didn't just lead to the death of hair metal. It led to the death of melodic hard rock and heavy metal in general, and took hard rock from a widely popular and diverse fanbase to a niche market. Today, in 2019, rock songs almost never get anywhere close to the top 10, whereas from the 70s to about 1993, hard rock regularly topped the charts. Rock music in the 80's/early 90s was awesome!
People act like in retrospect "Hair Metal" was this cringeworthy, horrid thing that NEEDED to die.I'm not saying they're kick-ass, I'm just saying they're 80Z!
Swatches were cool too.
