    I heard that Dave heard (kinda redundant, eh? [img]smilies/tongue.gif[/img]) the song while in Nashville or some place like that and thought it would be a cool song to cover. I guess they then thought it'd be cool for Jan Van Halen, Ed and Al's dad, to play clarinet on the track too. Jan was a little wary because he had false teeth now and hadn't played in a few years.

    I dink dat zit. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Wasn't Jan a little worried about playing because he lost one of his fingers?

    I read somwhere Dave had this little 'walkman' & he could pick up this station from the south, Kentucky or something, in just one little spot in his house........Heard the tune, recorded it & played it back for the guys, they all dug it.

    About his old man, the teeth thing was right, but also Jan lost one of his middle fingers too in a trailer accident & he was worried about screwing it up 'cause he hadn't played in quite some time.

    I love that tune, VH doing jazz, that's cool as hell.

    That song is gay, yet cool. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img] Not your typical VH, but it was nice to hear the musical ability of a senior Van Halen. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] Since he hadn't played in a while, had fake teeth and one less finger shows how the talent runs in the family.

    Here's a picture of Ed and Jan if you don't know what he looks like:
