    Yup. To expect that they would be exactly like we were in the 80s is stupid. Think of how much technology has changed, it's a new world, 30 years later. I just hope guitar will make a comeback.

    In other words, while it's pretty sad that Van Halen has made themselves irrelevant, the degree of sadness is compounded as the band still enjoys a sickening amount of unearned attention from the media.

    Making yourself irrelevant when the media fawns over you - daily - is quite a feat.

    Just being a parrot here but I don't think its a crime for a 17 year old not to know. She should however become woke and put on Fair Warning.

    Still trying to figure out why anyone would expect someone who makes music like this to know Van Halen or any other hard rock band.






    You think fans of Laurie Anderson back in 1982 knew anything about VH?

    This is where I first heard of her. I didn't care for the first song she did... a little too hip hoppy bland... but this one was really good in a classic chanteuse kind of way. I like the live versions better than the studio one.





    Her loving fans are hard to deny in this one.



    I could see having her CD on in the jukebox on shuffle with a bunch of other records from different genres. One of her tunes playing every now and then.

    We should just close this thread now before this turns all ugly. Some innocent teenager who can't name a Van Halen, getting a bunch of middle aged boobs in a tizzy.

    Sure, no one has been outright mean to her just yet... but it'll get there.

    Actually there were articles all over the internet a few weeks ago about Ed's cancer treatment, etc.

    Then hanging w VH fans seems like an odd choice given your opinion.

    She seems like a talented kid with her head in the right place but the reality is in 5 years the odds of her having any relevance is pretty slim given the current structure of the biz. Maybe she is the exception but exceptions are rare.
