    Default Pittsburgh 3/30 DEAR ALEX:

    Can you please light your gong on fire for this show?

    Thank you : )
    I can't remember which comedian said it, about the current state of Van Halen, but he said right now, Van Halen is like a really hot playboy playmate with a prosthetic leg.

    BRING BACK THE CLASSIC LINEUP!

    It's Pittsburgh. Do you know how many corrupt fire officials they would have to bribe? How about just setting Luke on fire?

    I'm still hoping there is some way I'll be able to make the show but if they play The Full Bug and Alex lights his gong on fire- wow that would really suck to miss both of those.

    Does he even use the gong otherwise? I don't even think he bashes it at the end of his solo on this tour as he has in the past. I've also always wondered what he uses the octobans for too (going all the way back to his 1984 Tour kit). I've never seen him strike them. And you look at a picture of his kit for this tour and I wonder how he'd ever reach them even if he wanted to use them. They're so out of reach to his left. It's not a big deal, it's just an esoteric observation!

    That said, I'm loving this tour and I'll probably see four shows by the time it's all over with. However, there are a lot of accessories on Al's kit that are for show only that he never uses.

    Gong included (at least on this tour).

    Light it on fire in Pittsburgh, Al!
