    He's changed his story a little bit over the years.

    I've listened/read other interviews of him talking about it and he said he pretty much didn't do a thing.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Piss on him

    I saw Foreigner last summer, he was little more than stage decoration, they had someone else up there playing most of the guitar parts.

    He does have health issues. His heart I think. There was a point in one of the tours where there were no original members on stage at all. Talk about people not caring who's in the band.

    I saw Foreigner the last time in about 98? It was the first tour with Lou back from brain surgery and it was so bad mainly because Lou had lost his upper range and gained so much weight like 100 lbs he could hardly move. It was shocking to say the least. But I did get a full show of Mick. Its terrible how these bands keep going with no original members and fool the 20 year olds and old timers that don't keep up with the business.
    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.

    How would you rank these iconic debut albums from 1976, 1977 and 1978?

    Boston, Foreigner, The Cars

    I would go ...

    (1) Boston
    (2) The Cars
    (3) Foriegner

    This thread made me pull out Can't Slow Down from 2009. Mick is the only original member but it "sounds" just like a Foreigner album from the glory days.
