    Default Rolling Stone VH reviews

    With all the talk about Rolling Stone and the RARHOF dissing VH, I decided to pull out an old book someone gave me long ago. The Rolling Stone Album Guide, published in 1992 contained the following reviews:

    From 0 stars to 5 stars

    Van Halen 3 1/2
    Van Halen II 3
    WACF 3
    Fair Warning 3 1/2
    Diver Down 3 1/2
    1984 4
    5150 4 1/2
    OU812 4
    F.U.C.K. 3 1/2

    How Diver Down and VH each get the same rating I'm not sure. If anyone gives two shits about what RS says, there's a lengthy review that accompinies it. If anyone cares maybe I'll post it later.

    Rolling Stone is apparently run by the same mindless idiots that run the rock hall and mtv.!!! These albums (most of them anyway) are timeless classics that stand up there with the greats of rock music!!!!!!

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    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

    Van Halen's albums are not all fives.

    Any objective rock critic knows that.

    Last summer (2004) RS had a bio with VH and Gary Cherone. Also the DLR bio said that at least DLR can say he has never had to work with Gary. Who oppened for DLR in the early 90's again???

    You consider going on tour working together?

    That's like saying Metallica and Guns 'N Roses worked together in the mid-90's.
