    Default Harpospoke is that you?

    Defending our boys in the comments section of this youtube vid?



    The syntax certainly sounds like you...
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    As much as I love that cover, the slideshow is even better.

    What's awful about it?

    Its a "pocket recording" of a live performance from 1975 or 76 by guys that were 20 or 21 years old. Not sure what you're expecting.

    Exactly! It's Van Halen doing the James Gang recorded on a recorder that puts AM on par with FM! What do you expect? Has any VH cover sounded like anything other than Van Halen? He must really hate You're No Good, and You Really Got Me then!
    I actually really like their version of Bowie's Jean Jeanie. It's actually a pretty damned good recording too!

    You're going to compare a band of professional musicians on a TV performance to a bunch of 20 year olds who are playing at a community college and don't even have a record deal? Never mind the difference in recording quality.

    That's ridiculous. Sheryl Crow and her band for dam sure had better sound better.

    The point is that the cover is awful. While it's cool as part of Van Halen history - nothing about this should be praised.

    The point is that it's not an awful cover.

    Hmmm... debating the quality of VH covers from their club days... since they covered dozens of songs, that's guaranteed "fun" until at least 2035...
