    Default If some kind of alien actually made it though an opening ...

    And came to you and asked you to play him just one Van Halen song to try and impress him/her, which one would you choose, and why?

    I would probably go with the following tune from WACF. It has a nice little acoustic intro, cool vocals and lyrics from Dave, outstanding back up vocals and bass work from Mike, stellar drumming from Al and great riffage and an awesome solo from Ed. The breakdown is classic Van Halen. What's not to love?

    I thought Sammy mentioned that this song was about aliens or something. Seemed to make sense.

    You actually made a great choice. It's probably my favorite Roth song.

    It's one of my favorites. What's funny is back when Sammy was in the band, they were doing some show on the radio where fans were calling in and asking questions. Some guy called in and asked them (Van Halen) to pick their "quintessential song". They couldn't answer the question, so the fan suggested "In A Simple Rhyme". The guys in Van Halen reacted like they'd never heard of it. No joke.

    But were they sarcastic - like not wanting to acknowledge the previous version of the band because they had something new to sell or if you didn't know better, you would swear they had Alzheimer's.

    I have no idea. Maybe they hadn't played that song in so long, that they kind of forgot all about it?

    That's one song I think Sammy could have kicked ass on.
