    Default Trivia, cool facts and useless information-just for fun

    I'm pretty damn bored right now.

    Post something along the lines of the thread title that pertains to VH, lets see how much cool stuff we know that we just assumed everyone else knew that maybe no one knows.

    I'm gonna rack my brain and contribute later.

    Go!

    I bet no one knows Ed started on drums and Al on guitar...

    from the basement of my brain:

    when the band finally decided to go with Andy Johns for FUCK they actually didn't have anything ready to record so Ed said "give me till tomorrow" and wrote Judgement Day on guitar, he hadn't played in a year (or so he said in the interview) and he tried to come up with something he could actually get through.

    random as hell...more will come.

    Cool Fact:

    Within the arenas and playing fields of the NFL, NHL, NBA, and MLB,
    Van Halen's music is played more often than any other artist.

    Wow, that is such a great tune. I wish I could write something that quick and have it be that good. That tune rocks. I could picture Dave even singing that song. He might have to change the range a little but it is rocking enough for him.

    well I think it was just the main riff. From what I remember they did one song at a time-totally finished with JD before they moved onto whatever they recorded next so they might have spent 3 months on just that tune....I know parts of the solo were not spontaneous, it was very planned out (according to the interview I originally referenced).


    next useless fact-The main riff from Don't Tell Me is pretty much the same thing Ed used to play when Sam was introducing Rockin' In The Free World during the RHRN tour-

    Randy Rhoads went into a LA Record Store and saw Eddie buying copies of Blizzard of Oz and Diary. Thought it was really cool to see Eddie buying them.

    Did you know Sammy Hagar wasn't Van Halen's original singer? Name the singer.

    Hint: It's not Gary Cherone.

    Very Cool Fact:

    If you buy the Jan 2013 issue of DRUM! Magazine,
    you'll find 9 AVH drum transcriptions inside...

    All the drummers out there know that AVH very rarely gets any drum-mag love so this is pretty cool.
