    Default Recent Bob Welch death/ Huge VH fan?!

    With the recent death of ex Fleetwood Mac, "Ebony Eyes", "Sentimental Lady" singer Bob Welch a couple days ago, I was doing a little investigating on his career out of curiosity.



    Turns out, he was a huge Van Halen fan. It struck me as odd, since he was kinda 'before' their era.

    http://www.bobwelch.com/index2.htm

    Check out the above page about 3/4 the way down. He has a cover of Good Enough and Hot For Teacher. (although a little goofy)

    There's even some pics of him with Sammy


    Here's a quote right from his website:

    My 2 favorite rock bands are Led

    Zeppelin , and Van Halen . The above "Good Enough"

    is a tribute to the latter. I know Sammy

    Hagar and Michael Anthony

    pretty well . If I was re-incarnated

    as a musician , I'd want to be in

    either one of those bands.. or both ;-)

    Zeppelin covers the mystical side,

    and Van Halen has the swagger ,

    humor and attitude. Between the 2 ,

    they've got the definitive "Lock On

    Rock" ! Nobody else even comes close, IMO.

    He shot himself

    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.

    Didn't know he was such a vh fan and i couldn't agree more with his quotes.

    It's too bad that he went the way he did. RIP
    Janie Liszewski did the IMPOSSIBLE she helped Eddie Van Halen get better. Deal with it.

    Never liked the guys music always boardered on pop. But RIP

    I remember his performance of 'Ebony Eyes' at Cal Jam II



    Chris Berman used to call LA Dodger pitcher Bob 'Ebony Eyes' Welch on sportscenter.


    RIP
