    Default Humans Being/Somebody Get Me A Doctor 1998



    Not a great performance, Ed and Al never quite click into place it seems but it was still cool. I never realized they did this track on 98. I certainly don't remember them doing it in Houston.

    The Somebody Get Me A Doctor part is from the Australian deal they did when the record came out.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    I've always dug 'Humans Being'. I was glad they played this live in '98 and '04.

    Let me get this straight? You like the song. And you're glad they played it in '04? Seems contradictory to me.

    No kidding. This is downright painful.

    As bad as that is, it's actually one of the better one's I've seen/heard from that tour. Iowa and Atlanta come to mind as a couple of the most painful things I've ever heard in my life. '04 tour was a sad, sad chapter in the Dickens' novel that has become VH.

    I'm gonna admit it.....I am not really a fan of HB. I know people love it and it's great for the guitar on it but as a song I don't think it's as good as everyone else does. I don't like sam's voice on the studio version, I don't like the structure of the song, I think stuff like The Seventh Seal is way better than this. That being said I would have liked to see VH really do this right in 04 but every version I have seen or heard Eddie is just a mess on.

    I feel the same way. I thought Ed completely sucked. Couldn't believe how sloppy he was.

    I'll give Sam a pass. I'd want that whole train wreck to come to an end as soon as possible if I was him.

    This is during the 3rd leg of the tour I believe. Or at least near the end of the tour. Because near the end he stopped using the sustainer guitars for a couple songs.

    This is how the 2004 Tour went in my opinion:

    Anybody that saw the band during the periods of June-Mid July saw VAN HALEN. Eddie was playing alright. I know in Toronto I'd rate his playing 7/10.

    After that it got more and more terrible. Ed got worse and worse. Anybody that saw the band after that saw: Sam, Mike, and Al and that's it. Ed was gone.
