    considering what a pile of crap twister was and it seems as if this joke of a film had some impact on sam's departure - surely we should hold the makers of the film accountable for the bands breakup ?

    also what film would have been more apt for the destruction of vh ?

    Although, I must say that's definitely the first time I've heard that theory before! Hell, that's it! It was those damn makers of the movie Twister's fault! They wanted the band that performed the main song on the soundtrack to suffer the same fate as everything else in the movie did from that damn tornado! [img]graemlins/drunk.gif[/img]
    "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 think the work VH did for Twister brought to a head some internal problems that were festering at the time. Sam was trying to get some downtime in. The Twister deal came up. It was clearly communicated they didn't want a song about tornados but something that highlighted the human aspects of the film. Sam showed up to record with tornado lyrics which forced an on the spot rewrite and from what I've heard the friction was already at a high level between Ed & Sam. Sammy blew off the Twister work and Ed pretty much had to pull it all together himself and finish off the vocals himself. If you've ever noticed some of the vocal fills and backing vocals in the deep range are actually Ed... I never really noticed much until I heard 'How Many Say I' and the vocal range is identicle to several parts of Humans Being.

    I wouldn't blame the movie but the project played a hand in the mess.

    how many say i ... dont get me started on that load of dog poo..

    twister / HMSI...connectomundo ?

    both crap . both dangerous to the bands credibility.. i think we see a pattern emerging here.. a pattern that for all the world looks oh so innocent but really if you dig beneath the surface reveals itself to be nothing more or less than a plot to dissuade us lovers of van halen from our chosen birthright as free men of this noble countrty to worship a band no matter how irrelevant they are to modern day musical styles...

    whew.. that's better.! [img]smile.gif[/img]

    I'm not sure exactly what this means... but you're not a decendant of William Wallace by any chance??

    Does this thread make sense to anyone???

    Seriously though, I think Humans Being is an awesome song... its that age old fact that a little turbulance can turn into a great song. The band was long broken up before twister, it started when Ed L. died.

    The pessimist says the cup is half empty. The optimist says it's half full. The pragmatist says its liquid contents are at 50% capacity. The ironist says its half full of air. The plumber says the cup must be leaking. George Carlin says the cup is too big. The Starbucks employee says its so you have room for cream. The conspiracy theorist says aliens took the other half. The baseball player says his cup is definitely full. MacGuyver says he can build a powerful explosive with it. The psychoanalyst says the cup is your mother. The punk sitting next to you also says the cup is your mother. The romance novelist says the cup is a willing receptacle to the wild gushing torrents of pure passion from the hard chiseled urn. The zen master says There is no cup. Pamela Anderson says her cups are definitely full. Me? Refill!
