    "One of the reasons I left Sabbath was because Van Halen was blowing us off the stage every night. It was embarrassing." -Ozzy Osbourne

    "When I first heard "Runnin' With The Devil" on the radio, I was stunned and found myself dizzy, walking through my high school hallways thinking, "What was THAT?!"
    Eddie Van Halen was so innovative and kicked so much ass, and David Lee Roth was for a time indisputably the Greatest Man in America.
    If aliens came down and challenged us to a Battle of the Bands to decide the fate of Planet Earth, I would feel very confident putting early Van Halen forward as our champion." -Tom Morello

    "A lot of bands mature, which means they get square; they start delivering messages. Hey, you got a message, use Western Union." -DLR

    Now, now...you may not like his style that was forced upon him like DLR forced upon Vai, but it was a hard lesson learned by Cherone and us fans!

    It's great seeing stuff from VH for the first time that you never knew was out there.

    Lemme re-phrase...stuff from Gary and Ed.

    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

    Yes.. I saw it yesterday when I was browsing Youtube.com for Van Halen vids.
    Didn't like it.. however.. there's also a version of "Right Now" with Gary

    And "Why can't this be love".. he pulled that job of good IMO

    I spent some time watching some vids from Balance. Man, Ed and all the gang looked like they were in the best times of their lives then. Ed looked great. Miss those days...

    But they weren't as confirmed by Sam's book. Ed was in constant pain from his hip, and tensions in the band were running high. I agree...the shows I saw for Balance, and even the Toronto show show a great, tight band...but I think they really put on a happy face...

    Call me a fag if you like, but that as awesome.

    I love hearing Ed play without any distortion like that. Sounded like maybe a touch of reverb or delay, but mainly just his guitar into the board....anyone agree or disagree.
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    Ed's guitar does sound great! I believe he has a piezo equipped bridge going on there, generating an excellent acustic sound for an electric.

    In '98 when I went up to Boston to see VH, they did 2 encores and at the beginning of the 2nd one Eddie walked out with an acoustic guitar and I thought 'Shit!! This should be interesting, I've never seen Eddie play acoustic at a concert before.' Then Eddie told the crowd, "whaddaya want, it's his hometown" as he pointed to Gary. And they proceeded to play Josephina--kind of a letdown, since all these other songs were going through my head when I saw the guitar.
    And then after the show my friends and I left and went to a bar where I met the girl that Gary went to the prom with. She showed us all these pictures of them at the prom and stuff. A little later on, I made out with her for a while in that bar, only felt her up a little. She gave me her number but I never called. She seemed kind of stuck-up. Oh well, what were we talking about? Oh yeah! Josephina, cool tune. Brings back memories.

    I agree-- and I WOKE up for this (LAUGH!)... I think it's amazing that even with out his "brown sound", Ed's playing is instantly recognizable. Just close your eyes with this video playing-- I did, because I couldn't stand looking at Gary's little bleach-blond "doo" (WTF?!?)...

    That sounded cool as hell. I love the riff that Ed pulls off at the end of the song.

    Thanks for posting that link. That was pretty neat to see.

    I liked hearing that song on the III tour. Something a little mellow.

    I'm one of the people that gave Gary a chance, and I do enjoy VH3. However, why did Ed have Gary singing so damn high? Go listen to Extemes Three Sides to Every Story...On that album, Gary's voice is awesome. I only wish he had sung like that on 3, and tourings....instead of trying to get a similar sound to sammy.

    just my thoughts

    Best quote heard, was when some guitar magazine interviewed Nuno, while VH was recording 3. He said something like, music sounds great, but they've got Gary screaming his lungs offs to sound like sam. Does anyone remember the exact quote?
