    Default VH live - London 78

    I stumbled upon this most excellent recording on youtube - I hadn't seen it there before. Band's pretty amazing. Suffice to say, DLR didn't always mess up the singing - a long time ago he actually sang WELL live!

    I have a copy of this show on CD. Oliver_5150 sent me the link about 4-1/2 years ago.

    Yeah, I stumbled onto that recording via YouTube myself about 6 weeks ago - I believe it may be the best sounding live VH Roth-era recording I've heard yet.

    I don't think DLR started getting spotty live until 1981.

    The first three tours, the first two especially, he was singing his ass off.
    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!

    Listening to this now, can they be any more on the nuggets with On Fire musically?

    And DLR and Mike seem to be having a contest as to who can get higher on the On FIRE! harmonies.

    Hot damn, I might have a new favorite bootleg.

    I would love to have seen the looks on Black Sabbath's faces the first time they saw that this is who was opening for them.

    Love the different ending to On Fire, forgot they did it that way sometimes!

    Recenty ran across this old radio interview from England during the same time period.

    " On a scale that ranges from deep dark depression to rip roaring fun ... most people idle between pissed off ...and not too pissed off " DLR 1997

    Thank you very much for this... It's amazing that things still keep showing up, even after digging everything from the band for years...

    I just couldn't listen to the whole concert yet because I keep repeating each song 3 or 4 times, as amazing as they sound!!!

    "A long time ago" most everyone did a lot of things better
    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

    Funny how to praise DLR's singing in 1978 isn't even allowed by some fans!

    It's a fact there is a world of difference between his 1978 singing and his later efforts. Let's just praise his awesome performance on this bootleg!

    They've always been aware of it. Even while not touring, EVH would regularly go to London to jam with Iommi, had a gf in Paris, would visit his relatives in Amsterdam, etc. They just made the business decision not to tour there.

    And for a while, WB Europe was not pushing their records there.
