    I was watching a tape I have a while back of MTV's coverage of the Viva Van Halen Weekend when they opened the Cabo Wabo cantina. It was almost sad to watch. The band is cruising through town on ATVs, soundchecking "Best of Both Worlds" at the club, eating tacos, and goofing off. Times have certainly changed. It's nice to see them have fun, like they always seemed to do. They're even all sitting around singing along when Ed strums "Cabo" on an acoustic. Anyone else remember this? Van Halen, whether with Dave or Sammy, always were the fun band. I hope they learn to recapture this spirit sometime soon. We could all use a little fun around these days.

    Yes! "Where have all the 'Good Times Gone?' Ever heard of the axiom "Change is the only constant?" However, we can only hope that (hopefully in the near future) there will be some sort of reunion, so are existential needs will be fulfilled!

    "One of the reasons I left Sabbath was because Van Halen was blowing us off the stage every night. It was embarrassing." -Ozzy Osbourne

    "When I first heard "Runnin' With The Devil" on the radio, I was stunned and found myself dizzy, walking through my high school hallways thinking, "What was THAT?!"
    Eddie Van Halen was so innovative and kicked so much ass, and David Lee Roth was for a time indisputably the Greatest Man in America.
    If aliens came down and challenged us to a Battle of the Bands to decide the fate of Planet Earth, I would feel very confident putting early Van Halen forward as our champion." -Tom Morello

    "A lot of bands mature, which means they get square; they start delivering messages. Hey, you got a message, use Western Union." -DLR

    I remember it like it was yesterday. Good question posted earlier, "Where have all the good times gone?"

    Great post The Full buD
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett
