    Why does nobody ever have a video camera out during soundchecks!? That would definetely be something to hear. Hell, they could include it in the show just as an instrumental.

    Or even just an AUDIO recording. Remember those?

    Every iphone has a "voice memo" app installed on it. Would be quite simple to get an audio recording.

    Makes me wonder if these soundchecks are actually happening.

    Soundchecks are DEFINITELY happening, but probably with VH's instrument techs instead of the band themselves.

    Also, most phones distort at that high of dB SPL. I can't record anything on my phone at band practice, and I'm pretty sure Van Halen is louder than us.

    On my way up there soon! Let's do this!

    "Michael Anthony, former bass player in the hard rock band Van Halen and Chicago native, said to be attending Van Halen's  Allstate Arena concert this evening"
    Bono Vox: Poetic, Political, extremely generous and just a tiny bit egomaniacal.

    "You know twenty-five years ago, Tony Soprano was driving around Jersey in his iroc-Z just blasting the Van Halen"-David Lee Roth

    "Will there be a Van Halen reunion? “I have hope and faith, and that’s more than just the name of a couple of strippers from Albuquerque” -David Lee Roth

    "This band is three quarters original, one quarter inevitable" -David Lee Roth~2007

    "“We had a lot of fun on the tour – Dave was a blast. And next time we go out, we’re going to have some new stuff, too. I’m looking forward to getting on it. I’ve got tons of music written, such a variety of stuff… Actually, next week or the week after, Wolfie, Alex, and I are gonna start jamming. Maybe we’ll give Dave a call and see what he’s up to.” - Edward Van Halen ~ 2009

    Pretty packed here tonight. Kool and the Gang just ended. They were solid, still an odd choice IMO. Half hour to the Mighty VH!
