    Default Is this Van Halen..?

    To me, this sounds like Alex's drum tone c. '84-'86...

    Is this Van Halen..?

    If so, does anyone have any information on this track?

    I looked up this thread from the Roth Army and it's a fake. Both Al and Mike said it's not VH. The drums are close but the guitar isn't right, especially the solo.

    Default "Fresh"

    When I don't know the answer to something -- as I didn't, in this case -- the best way to find out, I've found, is to ask... the conflicting opinions I read regarding the the song's authenticity prompted the question.

    The YouTube poster, Chris Gossett, has posted numerous Van Halen bootlegs and demos. From what I've seen and heard, they're legitimate... That is, except for this song, (unofficially) titled "Fresh" on YouTube.

    IMO, someone certainly went to great lengths to sound like '84-'86 era Van Halen in this case.

    The drums do sound close to Alex c. '84-'86, IMO.

    The guitarist makes use of a lot of Eddie's tricks, but Eddie's riffs are usually more distinct... This is in the "Girl Gone Bad" vein -- I'd be interested to know who made it.
