    If you have nothing nice to say about Eddie Van Halen, you're at the right website. - Me (A few years ago)

    "People take Van Halen much more seriously than we do" - David Lee Roth (1980's)

    "I don't sit on the end of your bed while you're trying to make a living" - David Lee Roth (1988)

    "For some reason people love to complain about everything. The internet has made it easy for people to do that. Shut the fuck up and get a life, or show me how good you can do it."- Edward Van Halen

    "A lot of people ask me which Van Halen singer was better. You can't compare them. It's like asking which guitarist is better. Nobody is better than anybody. Every player is their own person."-Edward Van Halen

    "I do like Eddie Van Halen as a player. He gets it right quite often." -Paul McCartney

    Can't believe nobody mentioned Meg White. How about some love for Lars? No?


    Not going to name the usual suspects so here are some I like

    Eric Singer (first Badlands disk)
    Dave Lombardo - Slayer
    Jimmy Chamberlin - Smashing Pumpkins
    Matt Cameron - Soundgarden/Pearl Jam
    Rod Morgenstein - Dixie Dregs/Wanger
    Steve Smith - Journey

    You are kidding, right?

    He can't even play his own songs all the way through when recording.

    To give him credit, he had one of my favorite drum tones ever on the Black album, but I think he is just insanely average, if not below average in comparison to his peers.
    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!

    A man's rights rests in three boxes: the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box

    How true it took him forever to record his parts on the black record he is the luckiest man alive,average at best but a promotional genius.He even gets writing credit on almost every song.
    As for my fav it is AVH no one has such a identifiable sound I can always tell its VH just by the drums

    'This hamburger don't need no helper"- 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
