    I just won a copy of the DLR "She's My Machine" single on eBay. I only wanted it for the non album track "Mississippi Power". As I'm still waiting on the CD and haven't heard it yet, I just thought I'd ask if anyone else has heard it and if so what did you think of the song?
    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth

    It's cool, it's a bluesy song, not an uptempo rocker. Sort of reminds me of Tell the Truth.

    It's another song that adds fuel to my theory that it's slower, bluesier material that Dave is most suited to now.

    AWWW - it's fuckin EXCELLENT!!!! DEFINITLY should've been on YFLM (it should've replaced Cheatin Heart Cafe).

    It was recorded for the sessiond for the FLM album - but SOMEHOW!!!!! didn't make the cut. Dave didn't write it - I think it was written by Preston Sturges...I think???? - I know it was one of the guys who co-wrote with him on the ALAE album, - very bluesy, smokey kinda vibe - and some mean harmonica by Diamond Dave himself. Very well produced too - people criticise Nile Rodgers production on YFLM, but Mississippi Power is just right.

    I think I might just dig out that aforementioned cd. Ian Sane - you are in for a treat - let us know whatcha think when ya get it.

    Wow what a great song! Man I wish I'd bought it when it first came out! I love the groove. Glen, I tend to agree that the slower bluesier material suits Dave's voice now, plus it was great to hear him crack out the hamonica. Definately should have been on the YFLM album...

    It's no Stairway to Heaven, but I am sure it is hard to write a song about a girl with cancer named Ashley Abernathy who likes to ride ponies.

    He did a good job of it and he should be proud, I am sure she really enjoyed it. It is nothing you would want on a mix CD unless you are making one for your six year old however.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
