    I really dig everything he did with Vai. I love the solo in that tune. but yeah Dave always had some smoking hot babes in his videos, with those 80's Body Glove bikinis and 80's aerobic outfits w/ thongs.
    What can you say, the man has excellent taste. lol Ah the 80's.


    A Little Ain't enough is an other good one in that regard.

    The ending still cracks me up.

    He certainly didn't have excellent taste in outfits. And don't tell me it was the 80s. I see 80s videos with David Coverdale, Axl Rose, Joe Elliott - these frontmen look sometimes cheesy, but never gay. Dave's outfits look flaming gay in that video. I think Dave should just come out of the closet. I can just imagine the uproar at the Army!

    Ugh. Stand Up. Easily one of Dave's worst songs. Everything about it is terrible. Anything that quotes Kasey Kasem
    for inspiration is on shaky ground to begin with. Even Vai can't save it. and yeah, that video ain't helpin either. Never
    seen it before. Where's my eye bleach.

    Skycrapper, man there are some shit songs on there, and that is one of them.

    Well at least that tour was enjoyable yet- one last dying gasp of Dave's 80's solo career before he basically fell off the face of the earth. I was talking about this the other day at the Rush show in Hershey, PA. One of the guys asked me if I remembered that he was along for the Skyscraper tour date in Hershey, and I didn't remember him being there but I did remember the show itself. I'm pretty sure that's the one where Dave went over the crowd on a surfboard and perhaps had the boxing ring setup? Good times at least while Vai was still part of the live band, although Sheehan had already departed.

    "Stand Up" was not one of my faves on that album.

    Enjoyed the show in Hartford back in '88.

    Shit sandwiches aside, I actually liked some of the stuff on there. Knucklebones was alright, the title track could've been good if Dave hadn't OD-ed on the vocal fx.

    I listened to Skyscraper for a solid 6 months after it came out. I thought there were holes in it but I definitely liked the album at the time.


    You couldn't pay me to listen to it now. God awful.

    He missed having Ted Templeman behind the board, it really showed.

    Well I'm going to go against the grain here and say that I really like Skyscraper...also I think Stand Up is pretty cool...I like the keyboard/bass line

    tho i will admit i havent heard the album in a while
    Any musicians near Boston / Cape Cod want to get together and play some VH? I play drums, guitar, keyboard, bass, and I sing. I want to start a VH tribute band. Contact me if interested.

    Actually I just listened to Stand Up...I really like that tune! I'm surprised so many people dont like it! Obviously it is totally 80's but it was made in the 80's you know...also i think the lyric is cool..."thats the trouble with love, thats the trouble with war, you never get what you came for..."

    and i'm going to say again that the bass line is cool
