    Default Up For Breakfast - Live 2004

    Personally, I can't stand this tune, yet perhaps someone out there may enjoy hearing and seeing a performance from the underwhelming 2004 tour. The video was assembled (with a sound board based audio track) by sphen5150, the fellow that put together the excellent "Learning To See" live video ( http://www.vhlinks.com/vbforums/a-tr...ee-t44409.html ).

    I know most people hate this song, but, I like it. Having said that......OH MY FRIGGIN' GOD!!! What the hell is Eddie doing? A jazz odyssey/exploration?!? That is just horrible.

    Thanks for posting, Chef, I'm in the tiny minority that likes the song despite the inane lyrics.

    I still love this song. The lyrics are meant to be quirky and funny. Not to be taken to seriously.

    But some people just want an EPIC song every time.


    But Ed on the live version is just...well.....I can fart more in 'key" than that.

    I could not get thru the song. Eddie's playing was just horrible. I went to 2 shows on that tour but it was very early in the tour and it wasn't as bad as that.

    I do happen to like the song but not the way it was played in this clip.

    i can listen to bad music.

    i just can't get over bad lead singer performances.

    on the dvd of vanhagar from the 90's, in one part sam literally was lying on his back on the stage singin (kinda like ed is here).

    then i'm kinda looking at this and there is sam kneeling on the stage singing AGAIN!

    man, as performers go he sure does NOT have any charisma or presence whatsover.

    probably a very nice guy, just seems to take the excitement out of any filmed performance.

    You are joking, right?

    If you're not then you really should go for an afternoon of electro-shock.

    no i'm not.

    but then again, you are the one that enjoys watch fat, 60 year old men roll on to their backs on stage and sing.

    reality is a bitch, ain't it?
