    Default Dusted off an old friend today.....

    i have been rather downtrodden over the whole van halen hiatus. havent really listen to them in a long long time. i even went so far as to scrape my vh decal off my back window, never though i would do that.
    i finally popped in my mp3 disc with every album on it. the first album i went to was fair warning. what a great album. listening to this again has re-energized my love of van halen. made me remember why i spent so much of my life worshiping this band. man...it was a good day. from there i went back to van halen II. that might just be my second fave dave era album. just the backround vocals alone on the cd are top notch. after a listen to these albums i got to wonder what you guys might think is ed's best opening riff off any record?
    i gotta say "unchained". genius. next i would have to say "don't tell me (what love can do)".

    what you think?

    The opening riff on Mean Street. I did the same thing this morning. Haven't listened to a VH CD in a few weeks and got totally cranked up for the day listening to Fair Warning on the ride in. Matter of fact, brought it into the office and it's in the CD player in my office as I type. It's a great day in the neighborhood.

    It's not a riff, but the Atomic Punk opener is the opener of ALL openers

    Last night I put in the US Festival DVD and watched it start to finish. Man did Dave fuck up the words in alot of songs. Aside from that man it still kicks ass. I sat there with the surround cranked up with my 7 year old son and watched some CVH.
    I used to jog but the ice cubes kept falling out of my glass.

    I know what you mean...i haven't listened to anything outside of BOBW in months.

    Even BOBW i popped in the other day for the first time in quite a while and thought, man, those new songs are pretty weak (for what i expected). They sound like what they were...Forced.
    Dealing with it.

    I guess we're all on the same page. I haven't played much VH in a while and just this week I started playing BOBW just to get the ol' VH-blood pumpin' again. So now I'm going to go right to the beginning VAN HALEN I.
    It's kind of funny how we all started listening to it again. (Not that I ever really stopped, but...)
    As for opening riffs; someone else said it and I also love Atomic Punk's opening (though not really a riff, ah fuck it, sure it's a riff!!)
    Other than that, "Unchained" has got to be the best.
    I guess we should be lucky that we have what we have.
    Think we'll ever get anything new from them? Shit, I'll take all instrumentals of the 10 albums worth of music they have now! I'll write my own fuckin' lyrics.

    Pretty wierd, I have also been away from the music for a bit. Just this week I pulled out my Peavey Wolfgang and started playing a few classic riffs, damn, it really got my juices flowing!! I have been playing nothing buy VH since..my fingers are about to bleed!! Then yesterday in my work truck I got lost in thought back to last years shows and how incredible it was to see the boys onstage again. I was just sitting there driving, and for about 5 mins straight...I couldn't stop smiling....I mean, you could NOT wipe the smile off me face!! It was really nice, I hate to say it...but does anyone else feel this way....when VH is on stage, it is almost like a religous experience for me....I CANNOT stop smiling when they are on stage!! I saw five shows last year and everyone....well they were beyond awesome...what a show!! I just hope the boys come back for at least one more tour, and I swear I will see ten shows this time!! Rock on fellas'!

    The next closest thing to new VH music, which it doesn't seem we're getting anytime soon, is popping in a CD you haven't heard in a long time. I think I'll "rediscover" Diver Down tonight.

    Default in n out

    I know what you mean... On the way home from work In N Out was playing and that song just rocks. I just turned up the radio and was in a state of well being. Forget all the bands problems in the here and now because when they put their minds to it pure magic. F.U.C.K. was a great collection of songs. That was an awsome tour. Ahhh.
