    Greatest cover band ever
    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.

    Nobody, not even the Who, covered this song better than the Mighty Van Halen.

    No doubt. Besides the Who conceptually coming up with the heavy, bombastic version of the song, VH just takes it to a new level. I just wish it would have been recorded in the studio.

    I always thought that too. Always loved the little "solos" that Mike and Al would do at the ends of the second and third verses. My favorite cover that VH did over the years.
