    Interesting that there were no DLR solo songs on the list.

    I am sure it did not have any bearing on this list, but Sammy does have family up in the Seattle area.

    yeah that is so weird. As much as I love Sammy and Sam-era VH, I would have thrown in a couple DLR solo songs in there too.

    And where the F*** is 'Right Now'??

    Yeah JMJ...that just shows how bad this 'list' really is. Even I'll admit Me Wise is much better than Mas Tequila.

    KISW was the first radio station outside of southern California to play Van Halen, and the band would appear on the air live often during 78 and 79. They still play Van HALEN to this day, several times a day. I have no idea why they didn't put any solo Dave on the top 1000, since it is supposedly all listener votes, and I know damn well that I put Slam Dunk in there..

    The station was also an early Hagar supporter, he was one of their "rising star" concerts in 1978 and you could have seen him for a buck! (Too bad I was only 12 at the time.)

    I believe solo Sammy got more votes, because most people think of Sammy as a solo artist, and Dave as THE frontman for Van Halen. Either way, both were well represented on the list. As for Extreme.... they never got much airplay around here to begin with. Not sure why, since crappy hair bands like Poison did.

    The top 1000 airs every year right around New Years, and usually the top 10 songs are all at least 30 years old and over 7 minutes long (Stairway, FreeBird, Layla, Hey Jude, etc.) With Eruption/YRGM at #6, it was probably the shortest song in the top 10.

    Check back later in the year and they will probably have the voting on line.

    F.O.R.D. Country

    Van HALEN is: Dave, Eddie, Mikey, Alex. Any questions?

    Eat Us And Smile!!

    Hey FORD you live in the Seattle area?

    I spent a couple years out there back in the mid 90's.

    Lived in Burien and worked at Sound Ford in Renton.
