    Default 2 questions

    Hello, everybody

    This is my first post. I hope someone has the answers.

    1- Who plays harmonica on "The Full Bug"?

    2- In his book "Crazy from the Heat", Dave says he worked on half the songs from the "5150" album before leaving the band. Does anyone exactly what songs?

    Thanks in advance.

    I can't answer the first question, but for the second from what I've ever heard Good Enough and Summer Nights were the only songs ever worked with Dave
    I'm cool.

    It has to be Dave on the first one, since he did it spot on live that tour.

    The second one, in a way, is true. Good Enough and Eat Thy Neighbor (later to become Summer Nights) were recorded with Dave. It was never said that half the album was complete, but has been confirmed that Good Enough and Eat Thy Neighbor were recorded with Dave.

    Thanks a lot, guys. That's very interesting.

    I'll also quote Dave's book to prove I didn't come up with some badly documented story.

    From page 237, "Wars and remembrance" chapter :

    "...It had been easier for them to put a new album together because I had worked with Edward on half of that album already. Brought in a new singer, went right to all those old tapes and started with that as their go point, so it was much easier for them to reconstruct..."

    I'd bet it was Dave on the Harmonica

    AS far as what he worked on on 5150, Ed says in an old guitar world that Dave heard the music for Good enough, Summer nights and maybe parts of Dreams.

    This probably won't help much, but I dug a little through my Van Halen encyclopedia, and it says that there were 3 tracks written with Dave for 5150 before he left, with "Eat Thy neighbor" being one of them along with a different version of Summer Nights.

    Couldn't find anything else concrete other than that Eddie had started writing Dreams before Dave's departure. Might be able to find more, but it'd take forever goin' through all those alphabetical entries. Oh well, I guess.

    as far as I know that's never been confirmed, someone said it here and it snowballed.

    ...

    There is this interview posted here at the =VH= Links and Michael Anthony said that the 03 of them were working on what later became "Sucker in a 3-piece".

    Hey, 1st of all, Welcome!

    Yeah, Diamond Dave plays the acoustic guitar for the intro of TFB and the harmonica solo.

    Hey there & welcome
    1.) Yep, Dave plays the harmonica solo on the boots I've seen. I think from Argentina or Caracus or something. At least live he did.

    2.) I just remember hearing Michael commenting in '86 that everything you hear on 5150 is from "this band right here". Sounded like everything recorded was written / worked-up by "New Halen".

    This song did have Dave playing acoustic guitar on the intro. The only other song, in the entire VH catalog, Dave plays guitar is on "Ice Cream Man".

    Actually you're wrong. He also plays acoustic guitar on "Could This Be Magic"

    Doesn't Dave also play acoustic guitar in the "Take Your Whiskey Home" intro? Plus in post 11, SR says Dave also does on "The Full Bug", which seems quite logical.
