    Would of been just insane ... I sometimes think I was born around 4 years too late ... I missed seeing Led Zeppelin and Van Halen and only really discovered those bands 1981 instead of 1977 ...

    At 21 he slayed everyone else and slays them even now.
    Hit the ground running...

    Proud fan of BOTH major eras of Van Halen. Yes, we do exist.

    The Sass Jordan version of Van Halen was the best...

    I continue to wonder how anyone could have heard Dave back then and question his abilities as a singer/front man. I've heard that record company execs didn't think he was good enough...and even Eddie didn't like him at first. Dave has always been the first guy to realize he is the perfect lead singer for VH. (back then and later)

    They probably had ulterior motives. Like Gene Simmons and Bill Aucoin trying to get Eddie into KISS.

    I won't insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said

    I could tell that my parents hated me. My bath toys were a toaster and a radio.
