    In 1985, VH was the biggest name in music, fresh off that huge 1984 tour. Never seen this before, but I have to say, there are parts where Eddie sounds terrific and then other parts where his style just doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the band. I've never really enjoyed Eddie jamming with other people because he has such a unique style and technique that he often sounds very out of place. Unlike somebody like Steve Lukather, Eddie is unable to change his playing very much to suit the situation...he's Eddie, take it or leave it. Not a criticism at all, but he often stands out like a sore thumb outside of Alex's accompaniment. Would this have been before or after Dave left in 85?

    OK, seriously, does VHND get some of its news from the Links? Because a few hours after this thread was started, VHND put the clip up as their latest 'news.' Not only that, but VHND didn't put up a "Happy Birthday Wolfgang" blurb until a few hours after a thread appeared here. Maybe it's a coincidence; does anybody know?

    EVERYONE gets their news here first. We're like the CNN for Van Halen. DJ's, promoters, websites, etc. all get their news from vhlinks.com.

    (In my best James Earl Jones...)

    *THIS...is Vhlinks."
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Jeff get's his info from the same sources everyone else does, most of the time. Yet he does manage to get some intriguing exclusives from time to time, such as the Mike Anthony interviews and inside Chickenfoot info. The truth is, it's difficult for anyone to be cutting edge with regard to VH news, as so much of it tends to be non-newsworthy.
