    Awesome. You gotta love when Dave took his singing seriously. He lost his way after the FW tour but up til then he was great.

    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    fantastic! what a band, what a sound! Such a shame there is no real official good audio/video documentation from that period.

    Jesus Christ that is incredible. Dave is fantastic here, really singing well. I agree, when Dave concentrates on his live singing he's pretty great. So great to see some video when they were young and hungry.

    I really think it's time VH put something official together. I know they have recorded and filmed a lot of their live shows from pretty early on up through to the present. They have a lot of stuff in storage. It would be a great project for Wolfgang to work on, and he would do an amazing job putting something together for sure.

    So if you read this Wolf, please, get on it. Really, it's time. There is so much wonderful history with VH, so much incredible music, that it really needs to be documented properly. Wolf, you are absolutely the only one who can do this right.

    For those of you who missed 1979. I didn't.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    Van Halen Rules !!!

    Fuck Yeah !!! That was Awesome. Eddie just destroys on the destroyer, and Diamond Dave was still On Fire. The next tune would of been " Somebody Get Me A Doctor ", thats one hell of a one-two punch right there, dynamite way to start the show. Never got to see them until 1981.

    Without a doubt one of my favorite all time top 5 Van Halen songs. Probably the best I've heard Dave sound live.

    Thanks for sharing that, it Fuckin Rocked!
