    Default Van Halen Paper

    For my composition final, I have to write a paper on pop culture/media. I chose the topic of Van Halen vs Van Hagar and I'd like to get ONE interview from a member here who can give a solid interview on why they believe Van Hagar is superior to the Dave years (I've already got the other side covered) using personal experience and facts.

    Thanks.

    Ya sure you dont wanna interview with a guy that was ruined at age 12 with listening to Van Halen 1? Graduated high school in 1984 completely enveloped in Van Halen bliss? Been totally obsessed with the whole iconic stigma ever since?

    To be young and in school again. Why couldn't I get this kind of assignment whenst I was in school? Oh yeah, Van Hagar wasn't even a thought yet.

    Feel free to post the finished product so we may review and grade as well.

    When I was in high school we had to give a class presentation in which we made a case for one item being better than another. I too, choose to compare CVH and Van Hagar, stating the case for CVH as superior.

    I remember playing some of "Hot For Teacher" during the presentation and my teacher said "I hope you're not waiting for me to hop on the desk."
