    Well, every time I'm potentially exposed to potential exposure during my drifter visits, I reset the two week time limit so as not to potentially infect her. I'm wearing a bandanna at home 24/7.

    Finally have a use for all those tour/band bandannas! I'm wearing my black Rush R40 right now, actually. Yesterday it was the red VH FUCK tour rag, day before that it was a rare inverse Police Ghost black on red one....

    My two favorite VH albums.

    Fair Warning
    - Ed's studio tone peak. The perfect mix of balls, clarity & clean. The Hear About It Later intro might be my favorite 30 second piece of music ever.
    - Song wise, it's tough to beat Mean Street, Unchained, Hear About It Later & Push Comes To Shove.
    - Someday when you're bored, take a drive down a street with some people on it & blast Sunday Afternoon In The Park. The looks you'll get will be worth it.

    Balance
    - The best sounding VH album, sonically, by a mile. Bruce Fairbairn was an extremely underrated producer.
    - The Seventh Seal will forever be my go to song for testing speakers. If they can handle the opening drum crack at cranked volume, they're good to go.
    - Feelin' is one of Ed's best solos, regardless of era.

    And I've said it before & I'll say it again. I wish that era of VH lasted. 1 year after Balance came my favorite VH song in general, Humans Being. That was both HEAVY, yet melodic, simultaneously. A whole album worth of Humans Being type songs would've been perfect.

    I love Fair Warning and Balance. I like the darker toast with a little sunny side up on each album. It seems that during the recording of both records, Ed was dealing with internal demons that shaped his perception of what was going on around him. While I hate that he was suffering it sure translated into some phenomenal music.

    I think it’s just a pattern that Ed has; shit goes south after a few releases no matter who is singing. If it had worked out with a third singer it surely would have come to the same conclusion. I also think Ed lacks communication skills so he lets shit fester and becomes resentful, and at some point the passive aggressive behavior explodes. Instead of working through things he just says “fuck it, I hate this motherfucker”...

    And just like that, its over.
