    You see. When someone takes the time to type out his thoughts and his really deep ideas. I can respect that. I'd imagine HH took major cross training on this one. That is some above the pay grade level writing. I could never top that. Commas are awesome. And so is Van Halen. Out.

    Bro, you know how I roll. I've been thinking about this post since last year. Glad Coulda finally brought it to the forefront so I could share my deepest thoughts, especially when it comes to EVH's playing and tricks.

    This is/was my time to shine. Can ya see me now?

    I love how Van Halen could insert a barber shop quartet vocal stanza into a hard rock song and make it work perfectly.

    Intros to Mean Street and Unchained are tough to beat for me. Of course I like the Rothisms like "I don't feel tardy."
