    INTRO: Saw the Universal show last night and just wanted to say that Sammy threw one hell of a party and Dave was one bad ass mofo'!

    BTW what the hell was up with 24oz Corona’s for $11.00!

    This 4rth of July I decided I was going to through a barbecue pool party and as I have been preparing for the party I took out my catalog of music.

    It wasn’t until I started to pull all these CD’s such as Dokken, Satriani, Vai, Racer X, Old Ozzy W/ Randy Rhodes, Rush, Autograph, Vinnie Vincent, Dweezil Zappa, Mr. Big, White Lion, Firehouse, Trixter etc…
    that I realized how much we have lost out on ever since the grunge movement came in.

    Where are the screaming guitars, the high octave singers, and the whiskey swigging bass players and the loud bombastic drummers?

    You mean to tell me that you guys never indulged in the 80’s metal scene?

    I will be the first one to admit that during 1987 through 1991 I bought every possible guitar driven CD, cassette and LP that was available on the market.

    Whether it was Poison, Van Halen or Motorhead, I had it. You name the band an I had the music in one way shape or form.

    I gotta go with willyum on this one:

    I can see Vai & the Satch man, and I'll even admit to owning the 1st Mr. Big tape, but I'll deny ever owning any Trixter (yeah, yeah, "Give it to Me Good" kicks ass), Vincent, or Firehouse.

    Baby, Don't treat me bad.....

    I see your point tho man. It's all gloom & doom now. Not party trix & hot, hot chicks!!!

    Music usually goes in cycles tho, they'll be back.
    Q: Recording the album took so long your Australian tour last year was cancelled. What was it like in the studio? There's a history of tension between you and Eddie Van Halen...

    DLR: It was like a stand off in a Chuck Norris movie. We each had the laser dot on everybody's forehead waiting for the other guy to blink. Except for Wolfie, he had a Super Soaker ...

    The new Rush album does kick ass. Those guys are real musicians in my opinion. There is no band like them out there.

    I saw them for the Roll the Bones tour when they played at the Great Western Forum in Inglewood CA. and they had the best sound. They were very tight and Neal Pert was amazing.

    Hey, do you guys know if Ray Daniels is still managing Rush or did they give him the boot too.

    he's still managing unfortunately.

    which is why the marketing campaign for Vapor Trails has dwindled into it's namesake. [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    too bad though, it's a brilliant record.

    If Rush had a manager like Sammy's manager Irving Azoff, they would be all over the place where they rightfully should be.

    I for one would like to hear Ray Daniels side of the Van Halen soap opera.

    Sammy and Dave both have negative things to say about Ray as where Eddie praises this guy.

    I remember a radio interview where Sammy stated that Ray never liked Michael Anthony and even went as far as convincing Eddie to do the bass tracks on VH3.

    I listened to VH3 after hearing that interview and the bass track especially on "Dirty Waterdog" at the end of the song is not Mike. At least it doesn't sound like Mike to me.

    What a trip!

    The 80s bands had their place...in the 80s. Being a guitarist, the only reason I even listened to any of that crap was for the guitar solo. I've matured since then and realize that a song is much more than a good guitar solo. The songs that most of those bands put out have not stood the test of time very well, IMO. That's one of the reasons VH has been so successful. They had the bombast, the screaming solos, but most of all, they had great songs! Music does go in cycles. Some band will be hugely successful, and every record label immediately tries to get their own version of that band, leading to an overload of imposters and wannabes with little if any talent. That's exactly what fostered and eventually killed the 80s music. Nirvana came along and, poof, everyone wanted a "Nirvana" on their label, hence the grunge movement.
    Music will always evolve and I think that's what makes it so intriguing. Every once in a while I'll dig out an old 80s tape or CD and give it a listen. Most of the time, the music simply fails to move me like it once did. Trixter just doesn't even compare to Led Zeppelin, Sabbath, Purple, etc...Those bands were original in every sense of the word, and that's what makes for timeless music.
    It all boils down to record companies wanting to make as much money as possible with as little originality or creativity as possible.

    As a product of the '80s, I enjoyed some of the rock and roll bands from that decade. The ones I didn't like were Poison, White Lion and some other imidators. What I did like was the great guitar solo and straight up drumming. Some of the drummers today try to play these funky beats because it's the "in" thing to do. Half the time it doesn't even fit the song. Alex Van Halen had a great quote when he says his drumming style is to add drums that would fit the music. Today's drummers need to take that lesson to heart.
