    BOBW - 5150 a close second. I'm one of the few that's not a huge fan of the album.

    I bounce back and forth between Good Enough, Summer Nights, 5150, Love Walks In, quite a lot. I actually really like the whole record, although Get Up isn't a tune I seek out. One of the few VH platters I can listen to without looking for the the 'next' button on the remote.

    But one of those songs from the album that I still think roughly holds up for the most part is Summer nights. Better live, but I still love it. It was a point in my dumb point in my life that still takes me back. Out.

    LWAN is off the charts insane, in a very good way!!!

    Anyone that didn't pick 5150 is wrong...just saying.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

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

    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?"

    Oh absolutely.

    If Iím hanging my hat out there during that time, Iím going home sick if Iím at work and get the news about the gig. If I hear about it before work, Iím calling in sick.

    Same with the West End gig in Dallas, and U2ís gig.

    It's 5150 by a mile for me. Probably Sammy's best lyrics ever, standing tall over the "only time will tell if we stand the test of time", "silken gown", "playin' love with them human toys" nonsense that pervades much of this album. Those lyrics were cringy when I was 15 in 1986 and they're cringy now...

    Oh yeah, those were another two I heard about 2 hours too late. U2 at the Whisky and the Stones at the Echo. My weho ppl were just barely behind the capped queue each time. They didnít even make the cut and theyíre much higher up the food chain.

    I wouldíve made the Whisky VH gig if Iíd gone to LA that morning as usual, but I had something to do in Ventura instead. Still remember the footage of VH fans running down the strip in a frenzy to get tix at the door lol.
