    I love Skyscraper. 10th grade. Art class, Mr. Kowalski (who we discovered years later was the school NARC) had a tape deck and let us listen to music while we toiled away on whatever bullshit project we were doing. Usually drawing Iron Maiden album covers...

    Some of the more cultured kids in class were listening to The Cure.... My buddy Craig comes in with Skyscraper hot off the presses. Removes "The Cure" cassette from the tape deck and throws it in the trash.... A few seconds later:



    Damn I wish I could go back to those days.... just for a week or two. Varsity football. Parties every Sat nite. Learning how to play guitar... Drugs (which are legal now), handjobs... Rock climbing every week overlooking West Point Military Academy. I could eat hot dogs and pizza everyday and still have 6 pack abs... Amazing music... No fucking internet. My 105lb Shepherd/Husky mix (Bruford)... Parents still young and alive...

    Most people hate this song, but there's just something about Dave's co-stars in this video …

    "It's so lonely at the top because it's so crowded at the bottom" - Diamond David Lee Roth

    "The truth sounds like hate to those who hate the truth" - Todd Wagner

    "Women and Children First ... The REAL Van Halen III"

    As much as I loved EEAS as a teen I never really got into Skyscraper. But as I often do with music I revisited it last year and really enjoy the whole album. Hina is great, I love Two Fools a Minute, And Skyscraper itself is fantastic, it appeals to my proggy side. It's really cool sometimes to find something old that's still new to you. It's like time-travelling a bit. I mean, it might as well be a new Dave album to me.

    IMO, still the best DLR solo song, with a not so nod to Little Guitars …

    brings tears to my eyes....

    You can have your Rush, AC/DC, Stones, Aerosmith, GnRÖ whoever. These guys feel like family and always have.

    Peace

    Just read a blurb online, supposedly from a Warner Bros 'insider'. Someone please find and post the link?

    The gist of it;
    VH will play 6 stadium shows this summer. Ed, Wolf, Al, Dave. YET.... Mike will come out at some point, do his bass solo, then sing SGMAD ala 1998 and 2004. No Sammy in the picture. Then VH will play additional dates in Las Vegas, come December.

    Sounds wild and fishy at the same time, yet this popped up on my news feed.
    Anyone?
    "There's too many people on this basketball that's floating around the sun, who are too afraid to allow themselves to FEEL" - Edward Van Halen
    "Van Halen was never about the singer..." - A very wise fan.
    "Embrace the past. Live in the moment but keep your eyes on the future, and keep on moving forward..." - Richie Sambora
