    I just noticed something. The pants that Dave is wearing are the pants Eddie wears in the Jump video. Man Ed's playing use to be so slippery.......Miss that. Hagar was right too, Al's playing was more loose before he stopped drinking.

    You mean EVH was wearing the matching "jacket" -- in the vid, EVH wore those funky patched-up blue-jeans he had.

    Both EVH and AVH play differently sober -- but I enjoy the sober VH brothers more than the drunk brothers.

    You meant 'they were all a little tweaked during that show', right? LOL
    Kidding.

    The US Fest is one of my favorite concert boots w/Dave at the helm. I'm sure the band was having just as much fun as the audience

    I wonder what that audience would have thought of "Tattoo" being played right after Dave said that "The only people who put iced tea in a Jack Daniels bottle is the Clash Baby!"

    Helluva hypothetical...

    "Tattoo" would've (in theory) been placed on Diver Down. Summertime party in Pasadena's backyard. 300 000 VH fans.
    I'm sure there would be far less naysayers about the song

    "Tattoo", sonically, sounded like it belonged on the F.U.C.K. album, to me.
    "She's the woman" is where ADKOT really begins, in my mind.

    Had this been the "Sheep" era, "Tattoo" would have been called "Down in flames," and done
    correctly.
