    Yeah, um, hi. I'm Mister E. Long-time listener, first-time caller.

    The formal first post...call me cd3. Sad but true, I'll admit to being a middle aged rocker (in years only, though.) Saw my first VH show during VHII tour in '79 at Asbury Park Convention Hall. A few more after that but had a mental block during the Sammy years. Listened to the music but didn't follow reverently.

    Now I'm ready for a re-birth, Meadowlands yes and MSG hopefully.

    Much more boring than in my youth but still trying.

    Hello all,

    My name is Mike and I'm from Des Moines. I started really getting into VH when I was in Junior High. I liked heavier stuff but always appreciated the "party" vibe from the VH albums.

    Being a guitar player I really loved the raw sound on the first album. I mean it sounds like a live album almost. I used to listed to the albums from start to finish over and over... kind of stupid now that I think about it but at least it helped pass the time at the crappy job I was working at. I saved up for a wolfgang at that crappy job.

    I recently bought a 5150 head and cab and I have a 5150 II head as well. Oh and the EVH MXR Flanger and the EVH MXR Phase 90.

    I saw VH on the Balance tour and the tour in '04. I know most people were saying the '04 tour was crappy but I don't know it was fine from my perspective. Living in Iowa you rarely get to see the big bands. Most of them pass us up for KC or Minneapolis. You have to take what you can get when you live in a shitty market for live music.

    Well, this is all I can think of right now. I don't like being the center of attention so I mostly lurk boards. Rarely do I chime in on threads.

    That's all for now....

    Mike

    Hey all, I've been a lurker for a while, and finally decided to register. I've been a VH fan since 1978.....what can I say? That first album blew me away. And when that damned Valerie stole my man away from me (HA), I did what any sensible girl would do---I married a frickin' lookalike. Seriously, my ex-husband was a dead ringer for EVH. **shrugs** What can I say?

    I'm don't favor either CVH or Van Hagar. I think they're both great. I've seen Sammy's version several times, dating back to OU812, but I've never seen CVH---that changes on Nov 27. YES!!

    That's the short version of an old life. Good to be here.

    Hey all,

    I recently re-registered, I have not posted in these forums for 6 years now.

    Last time I browsed the VH sites, David Lee Roth was trying to get back with VH behind the scenes (2000-2001)... since I'm a completely different person than I was back then, I don't use the same name... but I remember being a moderator on dlrarmy.com for a while.

    I didn't go see the VH tour, didn't plan to, but I'm looking forward to a new VH studio album.

    just found this hello from newbie thread, so here goes. i am mikeinkc. 42 years old. van halen fan from a teenager. just a regular fella, guitars, cars, trucks, etc. married almost 12 years. went to van halen at sprint center and got re-focused on my guitar playing and am currently building a version of frankie. not sure what the final version is going to be. 1984 bird beak headstock version of the red/black/white frankie, or the modern aged beauty eddie keeps under armed guard. i got to get my post count up to 20 so i can post pics of my progress for those that want to do one on the cheap! any way, just wanted to intro myself. thanks, mike in k.c.
    in my world there are only 3 guitar heroes; eddie, eric j., and S.R.V.
