    Sammy did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.
    Michael did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it.

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman

    That was really tough. I went with Rock N Roll, but Rockin The Free World and Wont Get Fooled Again are great songs as well.

    Gotta go with the Kinks here.

    Aside from Halen and Zeppelin, all we listened to the first 3 years in high school was the Kinks. State of Confusion, Low Budget, and Give the People What They Want are timeless LPs.

    Hey, I was serious. Really I was.
    Even Def Leppard did a cover of "Waterloo Sunset".

    ...or is that a bad comparison?

    LOL...

    "Cause there's a red under my bed...

    And there's a little yellow man in my head..."

    Some would argue that your truly classic Van Halen martini is essentially one part a certain Dutch guitar virtuoso, two parts Zeppelin, and one part Kinks.

    Hmm...I dunno if that metaphor landed or not.

    Seriously, though, Zeppelin, the Kinks, and Cream, as we all know, had a big gigantic hugely fat influence on our favorite band.
