I haven't heard/seen this Japan DVD but I do have the Live in the Still of The Night and I thought it was very well done aside from the very touched up vocals. Like RAMSAY not a fan of the solos.

For the most part I agree re guitar and drum solos - even for a muso it gets tiring unless you have someone with an amazing ability to improvise or , like at a recent Journey gig I saw , Schon put some time into preparing a little instrumental "song" with keys etc.... I don't mind that at all.

One that stands out was the VHIII tour with Cherone.......great gig aside from Cherone prancing around like a pansy. That's one of the few gigs where the highlight of the night was a solo - and not the one you might think. Alex Van Halen was fantastic - he did the usual showy round and round the kit but finished off with a couple of minutes of (struggling to describe) let's call it calypso style beats with keyboard/horn backing and it was bloody awesome.

That's a rare exception.
