    The real place where VH gets the main advantage for me is my age...I'm 31...I was 4 when Zep 4 came out...I LOVE Zep and I love the Beatles, too...I just don't have that immediate personal connection...I remember the album release days...the new singles...the breakup...5150...high school band trips listening to Diver Down through a crappy boombox and singing every word...Eddie's FIRST haircut and that ad for Kramer with McEnroe and Gerulitas(remember that one geezers?)...VH ruling Circus magazine...all the lame-ass wannabes...long hair(still got that)...backseats and 'Fair Warning'...staring at the 'Jump' video to see if "Dave really did that backflip"...Thinking Sammy would suck, then loving those albums, too...it means so much because I was there...Not so Zep or the Beatles...intentionally showing up late for class, just to say WHAT, GUYS AND DOLLS??? I DON'T FEEL TARDY!!!...intentionally leaving my materials in my locker so I could say...ALL TOGETHER NOW>>>"I lost my pencil...gimme something to write on, man!!!...Ordering a "glazed donut and a bottle of anything, to go!!" in every restaurant imaginable...comparing 'scissor kicks' with your friends...thinking the vid for 'California Girls' was the coolest thing done by anyone...ever...the concerts...oh, the concerts...being there when VH shot the vid for 'Top of the World'...Staring at my radio in disbelief when Sammy announced he'd left...wondering 'what next?'...the MTV thing...

    It's not that one band is better than another...It's that Zep and the Beatles were great bands...Van Halen was, and is, MY band...The soundtrack for someone else's life probably means just as much to them...The difference is that VH has provided the soundtrack to my life...I love them for that...I probably always will...even if Gary comes back...

    Van Halen is a more talented band than Led Zeppelin in every possible way! [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img] [img]smilies/devil.gif[/img]

    Seriously though, if we didn't have comparisons, we wouldn't have much to talk about on this board.

    I can't stand rap....people who can't sing do rap....you can sing rebellion as well as talk it....Hitler would have been in a rap band...
