    Default The Boss does Van Halen

    It's the first song. I just wish Van Halen would quit doing it live.

    Its just a studio song period. MTV made Jump.
    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.

    His cover of this song illustrates perfectly my problem with Springsteen. He's got 20 fucking people on stage and his music has NO POWER behind it. Van Halen with 3 people made music with power and balls. Somewhere there is a cover of Bruce doing some ACDC and it's just sad. Get some balls behind your music man.

    To be fair, this is probably the second time they even tried to play it. They usually take requests during shows and play shit they never played together before... Most Springsteen songs have that energy that this song lacks (and part of it is the song)

    I've never understood or even like his stuff. Just can NOT get into it. And, this song didn't help at all either.

    Billy Idol's versions are to shabby tho.......

    I dunno. When this was first done I cringed. I am a Springsteen fan. The horns and backing vocals sound great to me. I'm not a Tom Morello fan though. Perhaps if they worked on it a little longer and added more of the familiar E Street Band sound to it I'd like it more.

    Is there a squirrel playing keyboards? I learned to play that song when I was 11, and had better timing. But yeah this sucks on 25-30 different levels. FYI, I'm from NJ - used to work out in the same gym as Bruce Socialiststeen and can't listen to more than 5 seconds of his music at any one time.

    That's what bothers me about artists. The political stance crap. Springsteen and Sheryl Crow in particular make me think twice about buying their music because of what comes out of their mouths. But that's for another forum.

    Ok, Tunnel of Love has really cool guitar work by Nils Lofgren. I will defend that one song.

    Isn't it funny how when these artist start out they are all pro Capitalism, but when their pockets get lined with hundreds of millions of $$'s the get all Socialist. Johnny Cougar is a straight up Communist. I never connected the dots when I was a teenager, but his rederick these days and to look back at the song "Pink Houses" says it all. At least Hagar had the balls to say back in 08' that he liked his lifestyle and wouldn't vote for Obama.

    The only thing I can think of is that these artist get the "Privilege" of rubbing elbows with high society and they see something horrendous looming for America and the world and them having hearts figure that Socialism would be better than total devastation. IDK.
