    That was really cool. Could of given a little more "review" on Stay Frosty and especially Big River. No mention of the solo on Big River which I think is one of the best on the album. Best line from Phil by far was........"Eddie is Eddie,and that's the best thing about him".

    Thats why we love Eddie so much Phil!!!!!!

    Mildly amusing, but I hate stuff like this in the internet age because one person's widely broadcast opinions eventually turn into facts among fans.

    His assessment overall was very well done, especially the section on As Is.

    I enjoyed the video but I have to agree with Steven B. It sucks that people now more than ever turn to critics to validate their opinions.

    Just the way things are though.

    This guy has consistently cracked me up with his vids. Cool review too. I agree with him with most of what he says.

    I actually love the wah soaked TTWN and how Ed uses it to emphasize the riffs he's playing. I know people say it's just too much wha or whatever but that sells it short from my perceptive. I dig it and loved hearing Ed working the wah on a few tunes.

    I enjoy Phil's videos. They're fun to watch and he's an entertaining guy.

    I do differ with his opinion on a couple points, though. First is the brush-off of Stay Frosty's resemblance to Ice Cream Man. He tries to hard to make a point that's really not there. Frosty and Ice Cream both start out bluesy and acoustic, and both launch into fast, hard, energetic rock - VH style. None of the tunes he compared Frosty with do that. (Stray Cats, Bill Haley, Little Richard).

    Essentially, these tunes are cousins. To deny the family resemblance is silly.

    Second disagreement I have is the matter of the reworking the demo tunes. I dig ADKOT a ton, but if Dave and Eddie had been on fire, song-writing-wise, we'd have a dozen new tunes. Nothing wrong with going to the well, but I still contend the song ideas weren't exactly free flowing. No biggie.

    Opening the video as a sit-com was a stroke of brilliance, I gotta say.

    I thought the video was entertaining and funny at the same time. I liked the analogy of comparing Wil-e-coyote getting pushed to Alex pushing Eddie on Outta Space. Wolf does get some love during the review of China Town.

    His review didn't even start until after 2 minutes, so you didnt see any of it...

    It was pretty cool, but I couldnt watch too much of him.....
    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney
