    Default Why was "Not enough" shortened live?

    I've just noticed it from the jones beach 95 bootleg. Was it shortened for the whole tour? The second verse has been totally erased, and Eddes solo comes in after the first chorus. Has the band ever commented on this?

    The audience was starting to fall asleep so they shortened it. I really can't stand the direction Van Halen went in with the ballads. A Van Halen concert isn't supposed to be a concert where your girlfriend wants to be held and swayed back and forth during love songs, it was a place you would go to drink beer with your buddies, look at other chicks and do some air guitar to some of the best guitar driven songs ever made.

    I sort of agree about the ballads, but I did think that VH crushed their performance of "Not Enough" on Letterman. I think that was the first time I saw the Wolfgang prototype as well.

    They have done that what a few songs over the years, In 98 they shortned the intro to Unchained slightly, I think they cut a verse off of Judgement Day on the 93 tour, and I think they cut a verse off of Get Up during the 5150 tour.

    Get Up suffered from being a little too long. Totally love the cut up version. It's like an instant shot of adrenaline.

    But Sickman, if you're going with your buddies, and all the other dudes are going with their buddies, where are these "other chicks" coming from? Because you know back in the day, anything worth looking at was getting escorted backstage.

    The air guitar part I agree with 100 percent, though. Mine is never out of tune.

    On Unchained in '98 they also dropped the whole "Dave gimme a break" part too. There is no breakdown after the solo.

    They did it in Australia. It was dropped sometime after that. I remember catching a few boots from the US leg and wondering why they dropped it.

    Maybe they didn't do it because "Dave's not here".

    Unchained in 1993 they didn't do it either.

    It just has Dave written all over it.

    Sorry for quoting myself but I screwed up. I was thinking of the breakdown part in Mean Street which they did here and I'm positive they dropped later...

    I am pretty sure that they shortened the shit out of Mean Street on this last tour when I saw them in DC.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
