    Default Baluchitherium Live?

    Everyone knows Baluchitherium (Balance) is a bad ass song and rocks harder than almost any other Van Halen song. but i was wonderin if anyone knew why doesn't Van Halen ever do it live or why haven't i heard it performed live before?

    It has never been performed live. Prolly because of alot of overdubbing/ in the Balance years the band wasn't the best of friends. So Asking Sammy to not really do anything while the other three members played would have prolly not been taking very well. Or Sam could play rhythm, but the only songs I have ever heard Sam do that on live is Finish What Ya Started 2004 and his old solo stuff. After the Balance tour he was out and Gary and the boys only did the popular(the hits exception Humans Being) Hagar tunes. Also this year they only played one Balance song. Why I have no clue, but they did. Maybe next time(no comments about being a next time...).

    He has always played rhythm on FWYS, actually, not just the one time this last year.
