9 He Brought Back the Whammy Bar in Music

He was a very great dive bomber. But I'd say it was always in the music. Steve Vai was a prominent user for making whammy licks. KK Downing never left the whammy bar. Uli Jon Roth even had his own custom vibrato arm. Joe Satriani had been doing whammy bar since the beginning of his pro-career. Eddie Van Halen also used do dive bombs in the 80s. So, I don't think whammy bar uses ever went from music.
