    Default ADRENALINE MOB covers ROMEO DELIGHT

    in my opinion it's a great cover version.

    cool to see MIKE PORTNOY wearing a EVH t-shirt !!


    http://www.guitarworld.com/adrenalin...tracking-video
    In support of their album, Omerta, and debut single, "Come Undone," Adrenaline Mob — featuring Russell Allen (Symphony X), Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater), John Moyer (Disturbed) and Mike Orlando (Sonic Stomp) — will kick off a US tour on March 12.

    Check out the full list of dates below.

    That same day, the band will release Coverta, an eight-track EP featuring cover versions of some of the band’s favorite songs. Longtime Portnoy fans know about the many cover CDs he's released with Dream Theater and with Neal Morse.

    Coverta is Adrenaline Mob's first CD of covers. Here's the full track listing:

    01. "High Wire," Badlands
    02. "Stand Up and Shout," Dio
    03. "Break on Through," The Doors
    04. "Romeo Delight," Van Halen (Check out the video below!)
    05. "Barracuda," Heart
    06. "Kill the King," Rainbow
    07. "The Lemon Song," Led Zeppelin
    08. "The Mob Rules," Black Sabbath

    Be sure to check out our exclusive video of Adrenaline Mob recording Van Halen's "Romeo Delight," below.

    “Recording 'Romeo Delight' was an absolute blast for me," Orlando said. "I grew up listening to EVH, and from the moment I heard 'Eruption,' I was hooked for life! Tracking the guitars was such a blast, as I plugged in my white-and-black Charvel, my trusty ol' MXR Phase 90 and went right into my cranked-up Marshall JCM800, entering that EVH zone and giving my all to pay tribute to one of the greatest rock guitarists ever! We had a great time with Mike Portnoy's idea to insert a medley of kick-ass VH parts in the mid-section while going into a great treat before we head back to the final chorus!”

    "I could call it anything, but the only word I can think of is Brown. It's just a warm sound. Warm, big, majestic" - Eddie Van Halen on his Tone

    "Van Halen is definitely a ladies band, and I´ve got the Polaroids to prove it". - David Lee Roth

    WOLFGANG did the IMPOSSIBLE, he brought back VAN HALEN, DEAL WITH IT.

    not bad at all.

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    One of the better VH covers I have heard.

    Another metal band did a cover of Romeo Delight within the last few years and it was pretty good too.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Preferred pronouns: he/him/his

    Obviously someone in that band likes Ronnie James Dio.

    They left out the "Oooh Baby". That's my favorite part of the song.

    I always think that the hardest part in covering VH is doin' Alex's part, not Ed's. And this was no exception. Mike Portnoy's drumming was way too stiff. He couldn't get AVH's swing.
    Even the bass was a bit off. Not by much - it's still a pretty good cover. But it just makes me appreciate the original that much more.
    In terms of attitude, I thought Sam Black Church's cover was closer to the original.

    I think sometimes the point of the cover is not to be exactly like the original player but to cover it and be yourself. But I get what you're saying.
