    A similar question was asked over at another band's board ....and people were claiming they listened to that band upwards of 40 hours/week. Personally, I'd go crazy if I listened to one band that much.

    Van Halen (plus Roth/Hagar solo stuff) makes up maybe 3% of my collection, probably closer to 5% including bootlegs. I don't listen to them every day, or even every week though I do binge sometimes and play nothing but VH for a day or three.

    But with people saying they will listen to something else if VH doesn't release something soon, I'm guessing that they dominate some of your listening time much more than mine?

    I don't listen to them everyday. I've always got some of the CDs handy, though. Anymore it seems like I only listen to music in the car. I do way too much driving for work and such.

    Many of the tunes go through my head pretty often, though. Far more than I actually listen to the CDs.

    When I was a bit younger that was all I listened to. People at school used to call me Eddie and I had to go speak with people in an office at school because I could name a Van Halen song when it starts without the first second going by,I am sure most of you can do the same. But anyway....I really don't put on the albums anymore because I have heard them so much I feel like I wrote them. Hahaha. Even though last night when I went to bed I put on 84. Only to wake up with "Drop Dead Legs" skipping!!But there is a radio station out here,I am from Boston,but Providence has WHJY 94.1 and they play at least an albums worth of Van Halen everyday. So that gives me a fill.

    Every single day. (at the very least, at least one song and then that's it)
    Some days more then others...You go through phases...When I am not as into listening to 'em, I will still play at least ONE tune at some point in the course of the day. THEN there are the times when I am in my VH PHASE adn then, well it's all the freakin' time!!!

    I'm usually tuned in to one of the radio stations on the web that plays halen. Unradio here is great. In my car I usually have a boot or three in the mix. I'd say on average, every other day.

    Probably too much

    Sometimes I'll go through spurts where I won't listen to VH for like a couple of months or longer, then I'll do the opposite just listen to them for months upon months upon months.

    I remember back in '83 or '84 my older brother told me that within a year or two I'll hate VH, well that was about 17 or 18 years ago.

    Ahhh what the hell does he know anyway....but he was the one that turned me onto them in the first place.

    Later

    I go through binges to, where I won't listen to them for a couple months, and then go nuts and pull out everything and listen to nothing else. I'm kinda in that realm right now, recently I felt like hearing VH, so I've been binging on the Dave stuff everyday.

    Just about every day. Sometimes I'll listen to other bands for a while and get hooked on them.

    This is a great topic. Reading other posts, I realize that I'm a binge listener to almost EVERYTHING... Right now, I am TOTALLY into Springsteen, though I have started every day this week with RHRN in the car...Last week was all about SRV...

    I don't think I only just "listen" but I do HEAR 'em ALL the time.
    That's why I hate all the other bands 'cos to me they all sound like Van Halen in the sense that they're all rippin' 'em off,even the freakin' back'nsyncs.
    Those melodies they sing I don't hear THEM,I hear Micheal Anthony in BEUTIFUL GIRLS....

    Usually I hear them everyday on the radio. I get my fix for the day that way. So wether I'm in the mood to hear VH or not I don't have a choice. Since that is the rule in my car, that you cannot turn off a VH song. So I can go a few weeks without having to pop a cd in. Then there are times I'll load up the cd player and listen to nothing but them.
