    Cabo Wabo is an awesome song !!!
    The music and lyrics merge perfectly IMO . This is as good as it gets .

    I've always felt the music for "Cabo Wabo" was sort of influenced by this ...

    "It's so lonely at the top because it's so crowded at the bottom" - Diamond David Lee Roth

    "If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving is not for you"

    "Be careful what you wish for because you just might lose what you already have"

    ^^^ Not sure about that , and i've never listened to that Montrose tune ... lol .

    I always liked the 'wet' and processed guitar tone that Ed got for Cabo Wabo . It just felt right for that particular song , at least for me . And of course I've always marveled at how melodic the riffs and fills were too . Ed's guitar solo really does conjure up images of being on an Eden-like beach paradise . Paired with the lyrics ? This song flat out ROCKS !!!

    I really wish they'd remaster OU812. It sounds so tingey. The whole album would sound so much better.

    I can remember EQ'ing the shit out of it on my stereo back in college whenever I put it on.

    Just the time it was recorded in.
    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!

    WB should just remaster and re-release them. Do they even need Eddie's blessing?
