    Just because they are handwritten doesn't mean that they are original - unless you believe that the words came out in one perfect stream of conciousness. Most handwritten lyric sheets have words crossed out, doodles, etc. There are probabaly multiple sheets with different brain droppings and the final version was written down later.

    Oh. Cool. I get it now. Was a little clueless there for a minute.

    Yeah, Brett posting that was really cool. Loved that he did. Probably shouldn't have taken the little jab at Dodds. I didn't realize he was was being e-stalked on here. I've seen that huge thread about his book, but didn't notice he was being slammed in numerous threads. My bad. x 2

    Still, those lyrics are cheesy as hell. I can't wait to read the inevitable addendum to Kevin Dodd's EVH book. I bet he will wax poetic about how wonderful the lyrics are regardless.
    Quite a tangent there, eh? Incidentally, I don't think "cheesy" means what you think it does.

    Looks like our 50,000 page thread that discusses it evolved to getting the words correct.

    For example, it is "Needle", not "that need will" , etc.

    No no, over at Amazon.com there was this moron who insisted on slamming the book and the author personally in every thread over there. It was kinda creepy. Anywho, I was just yankin your chain on that one. It's all good.

    Well there it is folks, we can now end the Shakespearian debate of the words.

    That is awesome to see. However I agree that it's odd not to see words crossed out on a lyric sheet.

    I am sure he does, and then writes one up final.

    Even this one doesn't match the song 100%.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

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

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    Hurricane Halen - Let's all gingery touch our sword tips!!!

    DONATE TO THE LINKS YA CHEAP BASTARDS!!!!

    I don't suppose we have any graphologists on The Links, do we?

    This debate over the lyrics is all well and good but I for one would be much more interested in what the handwriting reveals about Dave's personality. For instance, isn't it curious that it's written entirely in capital letters? I wonder what that should tell us...

    Well clearly this is the good copy. Don't you guys remember grade school where you had to have a rough draft with all your corrections and mistakes, and then submit the polished copy to the teacher? I think the lyrics are pretty good actually.
