    So Dave is gonna play a couple of gigs this summer. Good for him! Other posts have said that he shouldn't play all VH material and that his solo stuff (for the most part) sucks. Sorry folks - I don't agree.

    EAS, Skyscraper, ALAE, YFLM and of course DLR Band all had kick ass memorable tunes. A pile of them were big hits. Sure he didn't have a Right Now - BUT he did have a lot of great tunes that are still played on the radio; and a few others that should be played... so without further adieu - here are my favortie DLR classics.

    Yankee Rose
    Goin Crazy
    Just like Paradise (an 80's anthem!)
    Good times - seriously under-fuckin-rated tune.
    A lil ain't enough
    Sensible shoes (another highly under-rated tune)
    She's my machine
    Black Sands
    Goin Places (this one is fucking incredible)
    Slam Dunk

    And of course - he should play California Girls - not because Dave did it solo - but because he did a great fucking job at the song. There is my essential DLR solo stuff that is a must hear on tour.

    So...what did I miss??? [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    Well, that train to "Songs/Albums/Videos" that I feel is just around the corner!

    Actually, the songs you mentioned would suffice, as would any of the other songs off The Best that you didn't mention.

    Another HIGHLY underated tune, and one of my all-time favs is "Knucklebones". What a monstrous groove that tune has!

    Other awesome DLR tunes:
    Hot Dog and a Shake (Pure fun at a 100mph)
    Stand Up (kinda pop, but infectious)
    Damn Good (Damn Good - 'nuff said)
    Baby's on Fire (Fuckin' Smokes)
    WA WA ZAT! (A perfect example of how great Dave can sing when he sticks to his range)
    Black Sand (Very easy to lose yourself in this song)

    ...and, uh, what the fuck was the topic of this thread again?
