    Default Campaign To Send Diamond Dave Harmonicas For "The Full Bug"

    Get Diamond Dave back on the harp for "The Full Bug." Send Dave a harmonica! If the Van Halen camp receives 100s of them, they will notice and the message will get through. Dave harping it up will be a show stopper!

    What's the Van Halen Camp's address?

    Harmonica playing @ 1:30.

    Maybe the merch stand can sell VH branded harps. For another 30-50 dollars, we could just turf them up on stage.

    If Dave wants a harmonica he can buy one.

    Maybe you can send him some chaps while your at it. Since you want to relive the past so bad. Wow.

    Yeah, it's a show stopper all right.

    Not sure how any of us have made it without that blistering DLR harmonica solo every night.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    I'd rather he played a dog whistle solo. Think about it - run it through a stadium PA and all the dogs in the surrounding blocks will go APESHIT!

    His harmonica solos live were rarely in tune. Takes a lot of lung power to blow a harp, too. Forget it -- I like Ed's solos just fine. It's a blessing enough just to hear "Take this scene and give up" -- period.

    Hmmmmm. I first off love good bluesy harp and like that Dave use to play some with the song but am quite over it if he doesn't. Wasn't exactly the guy's forte, really, and I thought he would have done some with the acoustic sessions and he never did obviously. I agree, let Ed play more guitar to cover the harp part, suits me and them as well.

    I too miss the harp solo.... (the old live videos were fine.)

    I think the bigger problem, however, is that it's nearly impossible to play with a headset mic.

    For my free post, I want to thank you for not breaking out the "assless" chaps.

    This is my understanding, I think this is correct, but I don't play the juice harp.

    Since almost all harmonicas only come in a specific key, not sure how he was out of tune. If the song you are playing is in the key of B, you play a B harmonica.

    If the harmonica sounds out of tune, it means you are playing the wrong one, or the band behind you is out of key.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.
