    Throwin a VH party...

    Saturday-April 9th, 2005
    On Fire-A tribute to Classic VH
    @Bub's Whiskey Dive
    Oceanside, Ca


    So here's the deal:
    Once a year I get together with some friends, throw a party, and play some of my favorite ROTH-era Van Halen tunes, and get a little drunk in the process.
    Thank god I have friends that will indulge me

    DLR4VH (from the DDLR forums) does the guitar, I'll handle the vox. He's bringing the bassist, and I've got the drummer.
    ...and if you haven't heard DLR4VH play the VH...oh man.....he does it very well, I say.....
    Here's a taste from the last time he and I got together in Anaheim a couple of years ago-

    Eruption/Ain't Talkin Bout Love.mp3

    Anything from the Classic Six-Pack, that's the name of the game here. Just an excuse to party....

    I ain't charging a cover....this ain't about gettting a good turnout or making good door-money or anything.......I took that out of the equation. I just want to have fun, and hear some Classic VH jammed in a bar. I ain't no Ralph Saenz(that guy rips), but I guarantee we'll have a stellar time. No wigs or costumes, just ROCK and ROLL.

    Opening the party will be "David Myers and The Blues Crew".These guys are friends of mine, and they play some mean, S.R.V. influenced, Texas style blues. They performed last summer at The Concert For Unity-III, at the Oceanside Pier, and I am stoked to have them back.

    After the VH set, we'll be having a killer jam session including members of both the bands, and maybe some surprise guests.

    Then there is the after-party, at an undisclosed condo on the beach, within staggering distance from the bar. Hosted by the same couple that took the DLR band (minus Dave, but plus Animal to make sure they got back to the hotel...) to an afterparty when they played OKC. They are flying out to Cali, just for this party! Fucking cool, eh?
    Anybody for jello shots?

    So there you have it.

    blah, blah, blah....

    Nice of you to invite everyone and not charge a cover. Way to go!

    Unfortunatley, I'm in Chicago and can't go.

    Anyone ever hear of one of the major VH cover bands hitting the road, or more specifically Chi-town?

    If they come near you, DEFINITELY check them out. It's so freakin' good, you'll think you're in a time warp.

    I agree! both those tunes are some of the BEST ever from that band, imo.

    I think CGTSNM would be first up to bat, only because it's easier to nail, vocally.

    I wonder if the Punks'll get around to doing either of those two?

    I wish I could hear the real fucking thing, you know?

    OH WELL, I can't...which is exactly why I am throwin this party.

    do yourself a favor and go to LA to the Atomic Punks and as a bonus treat yourself to Metal Skoool at the Roxy...

    well, dammit....the drummer just ain't gonna be ready....poor guy is getting over a broken wrist, and can barely hold a pair of sticks enough to play at all, let alone tackle Al's riffs....
    My old drummer is going to sit in and knock it out of the park for us.
    much obliged.

    Well, I wish we could come to Finland and tear it up!

    www.tormentedvhfans.com has some pics from the gig.

    Might be some audio, and if so, I'll post a clip or two, if anyone wants it.
