    VARIETY: "The men reportedly stormed the record store, Velvet Indieground, in Istanbul, Turkey, and used pipes to violently beat fans running away from the venue for drinking alcohol during the holy month of Ramadan."

    That country has seen a change since Erdogan has become president. He has brought in more and more of these types and it will get worse. But hey, let's bring them here.
     "He has a swaggering retro machismo that will give hives to the Steinem cabal" -Camille Paglia on Donald Trump

    "Make way for the bad guy"- Tony Montana

    'This hamburger don't need no helper"- David Lee Roth

    "I wish Bon Jovi would've given me a call before he recorded all of his hits, because the lyrics would've been smarter, the melodies would've been much more smashing, and they would've sold a lot fewer records." -David Lee Roth

    "My beef is people thinking Bon Jovi is good cuz they sold lots of records to housewives." -tango

    "But being number one doesn’t really mean jack fuck all. We sold twice as many records as other records that year (1984) that landed in the Number One position." ~Eddie Van Halen

    Love that song, especially the second part.

    The guitar work is very tricky, almost proggy.

    Radiohead is one of those bands i can hear the brilliance in, but can
    also understand why some might not get it or like it.
    But i really like them, especially The Bends, Amnesiac & Kid A.
    "There There" From Hail to the thief, is just amazing, as well.

    Reminds me of the Inquisition and Nazi Germany.
    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.

    Great combo isn't it?
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

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

    Such a great tune. The guitars create an almost hypnotic vibe. Yeah, Jonny and Ed are by no stretch guitar gods, but they come up with some very cool stuff. It's a more melodic approach these days, nothing like the catchy riffs of The Bends, but they really nail it.

    I agree. After the Bends record the straight forward rock approach was gone. They got to do the style they wanted to do all along. More proggy, electronic. I can see how people might not like it, too. But it does produce some gems once in awhile.
