    Default Lines of BS

    I was driving home tonight thinking of all the lines of bullshit VH has given it's fans over the years. So, I thought it would be funny to have a thread dedicated to "VH Lines O" Bullshit!"
    I'll start:
    "This isn't a reunion. This is a new band"
    How many new bands only play music that is at least 24 years old?

    "with -insert singer's name - it's magic.

    "Wolfie has been playing for three months and already blows the other guy away" Ya, right!!

    "Alex can finally hear the bass in his headphones" Evidently, after being a musician for 40 years he finally found out the there is such a thing as a volume knob.

    I bet I could come up with at least 50 lines of BS the band has given us over the years but I'll let the rest of you give an example.
    Don't get me wrong, I am a huge VH fan but you can't bullshit a bullshitter!!!

    Your turn

    the one that really irks me is "alex can finally hear bass..." ok. so I'll assume Al was like "hey Mike, we need you louder in the mix" and Mike was like "no, I like the fact that no one can hear me."

    One thing I find really funny is Mike's really low int he mix on everything up till OU812 but go listen to Sammy's 1987 album where Ed is playing bass and holy shit, the bass is totally in the forefront...wonder why?

    The whole line about "Alex can finally hear bass" has been taken out of context from that interview. What he was saying was that Al didnt usually HAVE bass (just guitar) in the feed to his headphones, not that MA wasnt audible.
    "Look, I'll pay you for it, what the f**k?!"

    "If I don't make her happy in the bedroom the wife gets bitchy for days at a time, but when I come to bed ready for action she laughs and laughs. She even laughs while I make my moves so I know I must be pleasing her as only I can do."

    Van Halen's never given a shit about the fans. It's just been quite noticeable since '96.

    How about these howlers?



    "I cured my cancer in a way that’s not exactly legal in this country. I’d tell you, but I don’t want to go to jail. When you drink your damn draino it just holds it at bay. It comes back. Cancer is like a cockroach. It just comes back stronger. I’m tearing apart the immune system of the cockroach and seeing how it ticks. I’ve opened up my own pathology center. Some of us open tequila bars in Mexico, I’m curing cancer. They cut a healthy piece of my tongue off and grew healthy cells outside of my body and tested them. I’m missing a third of my tongue. They butchered me. I didn’t quit smoking after I got tongue cancer cause smoking didn’t cause it...the disease might have come from a metal guitar pick..."

    This and other "insights":
