Any recomendations by him? I've always loved Cliffs of Dover, but now I've heard Manhattan (Live at G3) and it just blows me away.

His blues project Alien Love Child is good.

I'd say that Ah Via Musicom is the best album to start with.

Definitely Ah Via Musicom.

I recently listened to it again on the way to school, and remembered how amazing it was.

Try playing it ;)

It's probably the toughest solo he's even recorded.

It probably is.

The rest of the song is very easy, but then the solo is mindblowing.

I my god it is... I tried playing it once and I was like :wtf: It doesn't sound too hard either, which makes it even worse!

I pulled open the GuitarPro, and just watched the solo being played on it.

Jesus Christ.

I was lucky enough to get to see him play some of Cliffs of Dover while I was about 2 feet from him. My uncle has been a studio engineer since the mid 70's and is friends with Eric. I've had the pleasure of meeting with him several times over the years and he even let me pick up one of his strats and play a little on it backstage before a show. Unfortunately, this was before I owned a video camera or I would most definitely have footage of it all. He's one of the nicest guys and so soft spoken. Plus he just oozes talent.
