Hard rock and heavy metal keyboard journeyman Derek Sherinian's credits include Billy Idol, Dream Theater, Alice Cooper, Joe Bonamassa, and Black Country Communion. He recently posted a quick YouTube video in which he played Eddie Van Halen's "Spanish Fly" guitar solo on grand piano. This got the attention of the website Van Halen News Desk, a conduit for news about the band and licensed merchandise. We agree with their assessment: Sherinian's treatment of this tune on piano serves to showcase what a great piece of music it is. Hit the source link for a side-by-side comparison of it with the original track from the Van Halen II album.
