    This is so awesome. So much energy on the stage that night.

    Eddie Van Halen in 2012:

    "ESQ: What are you going to do with all the material that you wrote with Sammy Hagar?

    EVH: Oh, I hadn't thought about that. That's some great music. They're just on vacation, maybe. They're off to college and they're going their own way. Who knows?"

    The Van Hagar era peaked right there. Seriously. Probably Ed's best solo of that era.

    Wonder why we've never seen any other video from this. "a couple songs"....was that accurate? I thought I read somewhere it was just this.
    Right here I say....

    '85 WS, Gm 6 STL@KC: Umpire Don Denkinger calls Jorge Orta safe at first in the ninth, and the Royals put up two runs en route to a win
    By Doug Miller / MLB.com | October 21st, 2014 + 34 COMMENTS
    Twenty-nine years later, as the Royals prepare to finally play in a World Series again and Kauffman Stadium gets ready for a rocking Game 1, the unavoidable name of Don Denkinger is being brought back down from the shelves of the sport's lore.

    The old umpire says that's OK. He's used to it.
    "It's life and it goes on," Denkinger says from his Arizona home, where he is retired, playing a lot of golf and enjoying the October sunshine.

    "I'm obviously reminded constantly that I made a mistake. You know what? I was an umpire for more than 30 years in the Major Leagues. I know I made a lot of mistakes. That one was just blown out of proportion."
    And one that wouldn't have even registered if the game in question had been played in 2014.
    "If it happened now," Denkinger says, "they'd review it and overturn it. Just like that."
    * * * * *
    It's difficult to forget the images if you were even the most casual baseball observer on Oct. 26, 1985. It was Game 6 of the World Series, with the Cardinals leading the Series, 3-2, and the game, 1-0, as the Royals came to bat in the bottom of the ninth.
    It starts with the ball on its impossible AstroTurf infield path, hopping along between first and second base as Royals pinch-hitter Jorge Orta steams up the line in home whites.
    There's the split-second moment at which Cardinals first baseman Jack Clark moves to his right in front of second baseman Tom Herr to field the ball because reliever Todd Worrell is on the move to make the play at first. Clark fields the ball, pitches it sidearm to Worrell, and it's a close play. Denkinger rules the runner safe as Orta falls to the turf after hitting the bag. Worrell, Clark and Herr argue with Denkinger as St. Louis manager Whitey Herzog comes jogging from his dugout to do the same.
    On television, broadcaster Al Michaels announces it in real time: "Little squibber to the right side. Worrell races over to cover the throw … doesn't get him! Worrell back to the bag and an argument here, and here comes Herzog amongst the other quartet."
    The TV replay comes a moment later, with Michaels' booth partner, Hall of Fame pitcher Jim Palmer, viewing the play from up above and somewhere near the third-base line and saying, "Looks like he's out." Then another replay is shown from another angle, this one from closer in, on the right side of the bag along the first-base line, and there it is: clear evidence of Worrell's red cleat touching the base as Orta's blue one still lunges in the air.
    Michaels says, "Oh, yes." And moments later, "I don't think there's any doubt about it."
    Herr saw it better than anybody even before the replay sealed it for eternity, looking over from his position and unencumbered by the action of the play. And now, with the Fall Classic coming back to that ballpark and the technology of instant-replay review having fully emerged, he, like every other baseball observer who remembers the call, can't help but think of what would have transpired if it all happened in 2014.
    "They'd review it, and he'd be out," Herr says. "There'd be one out, nobody on."
    * * * * *
    What happened after Orta was called safe is what hasn't been discussed much in the past 29 years. There's an urban myth that Denkinger kicked the call in the ninth inning of Game 7 with two outs. That the game ended on that play. That Denkinger's career ended on that play. All are untrue.
    So, again, nobody out, Orta on first. The next batter is burly first baseman Steve Balboni. On the first pitch, Balboni pops a ball foul, right in front of the Royals dugout, and Clark, a converted outfielder still somewhat new to first base, looks like he has an easy play on the ball but takes a look at oncoming catcher Darrell Porter, hesitates for a moment and loses track of the ball just long enough for it to fall to the carpet behind him -- a strike instead of an out. Two pitches later, Balboni reaches out and slaps an outside fastball to left field for a single, moving Orta to second.
    The crowd is percolating. The Royals in the dugout are up and alive. Onix Concepcion is brought in to pinch-run for Balboni as Herzog heads for the mound to talk things over with Worrell.
    Catcher Jim Sundberg strides to the plate and shows bunt on the first pitches, both balls, and then bunts the next two pitches foul. At 2-2, Sundberg takes a chance and bunts, but right at Worrell. The pitcher fields it and throws to third baseman Terry Pendleton, nailing Orta for the first out.

    I think it was party of their American Party image.....Back then, seeing Ed with the limited other choices (Guinness, Pete's Wicked, Sam Adams, maybe Anchor) just would have looked elite. Just like Jack Daniels, seeing DLR with a 50 year old scotch wouldn't have worked.
    Right here I say....
