    Unless the whole article is meant to be sarcastic, this thing is full of lies and inaccuracies.

    all I can say is WHAT? Was crack that prevalent when this was written? Forgive me if I'm taking this too seriously but I can't laugh at it because it's not funny. The only other thing to do is dissect it.

    Reading things like this, it's no wonder why people are so mis-informed about VH.

    First off, in the first paragraph he throws in a classic Jon Landau quote only it's about THE WRONG ARTIST. The actual quote was about Bruce Springsteen. "I've seen the future of rock n' roll and it's name is Bruce Springsteen."

    That made me want to not read the rest but I had to.

    Here are some of the gems:

    - He calls the song "Atomic Punk" a PUNK SONG. WHAT?
    - The first 2 albums tanked? WHAT?
    - trying to compare "Fair Warning" to the political flavor of the times? WHAT?
    - "Jump" a "Who" influenced synth-pop gem. The Who? WHAT?
    - the band (w/Dave) broke up soon after "1984" in part due to legal hassles that accompanied harrassment about the album. WHAT?

    And the epilogue has to be a joke. See for yourself.

    The whole thing is a joke. What's funny is how many people are getting upset over it. Jimmy Carter in his second term? LOL

    Yeah i guess the jokes on me. I read a description on another link. Like I said though, it's not funny at all. I would've "got it" if it was the least bit funny. Also, not being American, I didn't even pay attention to the reference to President Carter.

    Why do people write fake histories for bands?

    To quote Ted Nugent, "It's perfectly retarded."

    It was probably for a creative writing class in which he had to write an alternate history story. I had to do one in college once, but the subject was that the Nazi's won WWII. His was probably much more fun to write!
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    Hurricane Halen - Let's all gingery touch our sword tips!!!
