During the past century I listened to a lot of recordings of the Glass Spider tour. I was familiar with the guitar intro but couldn't place it, until a hard rock fan came along and told me it was a cover of Eruption by Van Halen.
Share any over here the same idea that https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9fQTQ6z324 is a cover of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sI7XiJgt0vY
I've found an article which has the same opinion http://137.207.184.188/books/beswoda/swoda_50/Lance%201982-1999/1987-09-17-16.pdf and some rreferences to Van Halen https://movingtheriver.com/2015/05/20/david-bowies-stonehenge-the-glass-spider-debacle/>

Interesting never knew that. It's not a note for note cover, but it sure has some key elements of Eruption. That tapping sure is a clear reference. Who knew Carlos listens to Van Halen.

As good as Carlos is, he's nowhere near Eddie's ability.

I think both parts were heavily influenced by Kreutzer's Etude No. 2.

He also played it the previous year when he was touring with Yukihiro Takahashi.
