    Best year of my life for many reasons not just VH. So much good music was going on in rock and jazz. Every day a band or artist came out with new stuff and tours all over 12 months a year.
    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.

    I can't remember if it was 78 or 79 (probably 78) but I remember clearly the first time I heard something from this album. I was in my bedroom listening to the radio on a clock radio. lol. A song came on and I remember saying to my older brother 'how does he get his guitar to sound like that?' I swear to god that's the truth. I didn't know who "he" was or what the song was or who the band was. I was 10 or 11 yrs old and Eddie jumped right out at me (Ain't Talkin' Bout Love was the song). That still blows me away that the VH thing really was that instantaneous for me. From there I was as over the top VH through middle school and high school as you can get.

    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.

    IMO, the greatest rock and roll album ever recorded.

    With respect, I feel fortunate that the best year of my life is/was much more recent.

    For the 36th anniversary of VH, I set up a poll where everyone can vote for their 3 favorite songs from the album. We've received several thousand votes so far today. Head over to vote and then view the results.

    Are the songs with the most votes the songs that you would expect?

    Well, so far the top three are my top three, so I'd have to say yes.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.
