    "Bottom's up!" i'm hearing a lot now on WZLX, but always late night.
    Most times when they have the Robo-DJ.

    Such a killer boogie, and i do think it's recognized more now than then.
    Damn! You guys are getting Bottoms Up!. Gotta be in the big city for that I suppose.
    Cool it's getting some love, somewhere.

    I can assure you I'm not them. Show, has way better hair than me and Jape is a wordsmith extraordinaire.

    I understand your frustration but it is what it is. I agree with several people and posts on here. Not just, Jape.
    I'm sure you also remember I agreed with YOU a lot on the other site.

    A couple from the Dave era — Sinner’s Swing, and Drop Dead Legs.

    A couple from the Sam era — 5150, and Cabo Wabo


    There are really so many to choose from. Like several have said on here, none of these are really “deep cuts” to us.
    SOME VH LINKS CLASSICS


    "Sammy is fat, Dave is bald, Mike is next in line to be the Pope, Eddie is a drunk, Wolfie is fat, Gary is gay, CVH is VH, Mike is VH, Sammy can outsing Dave on a tequilla hangover, Eddie is a meth head, How Many Say I is the worst VH song ever, Up for Breakfast is a close second, Dave was horrible at radio and everybody hates the assless chaps.
    Ok I think that covers everything." Ziggysmalls

    "I sense that some of our newer passengers may be nervous due to the sudden turbulence. Please be seated, this is simply a normal part of the periodic ride.
    I didn't say we'll get to the destination, but until Alex comes out a says what a complete waste of carbon DLR is, we're still climbing, so strap yourselves in.
    Those of you who have been on this ride before, the hottie in the mini will be around shortly with your drinks......." Red

    Van Halen is the only band where I generally like the live performances better than the studio cuts.

    Especially the 5150 stuff. Except maybe LWI because while Sam's a good guitar player, he's no EVH and Ed's two solos on that track are beautiful pieces of music.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    Gotcha. I'm not familiar enough with PoP and Jape on other sites so I didn't get the "humor."

    Dude, there was no humor.

    No one got the joke, because there was none.
    He tried to back peddle, just like he did when he attacked your guitar
    playing, with absolutely no provocation.

    I don't know why you won't just call him on it?

    He's gonna do it again, because that's what he does.
