    Yeah, I am not sure where & why it popped up. However, it is relevant... Sounds very close to Wittgensteinien or J.L. Austinian (language) philosophy! It works...

    When something is totally clear (understood by everybody) there's no need to argue (discussed) about it.
    As when Sammy said "WHAT IS UNDERSTOOD DOESN'T NEED TO BE DISCUSSED, RIGHT EDWARD, LET'S GO TO MY BEST FRIENDS HOUSE, MR. EDWARD VAN HALEN TO SEE WHAT HIS GOT COOKIN' " meaning Eddie is the best guitarist in the world (which is understood and there is no need to discuss it).
    Hope you got it.

    I think it's a quote from Loren Adams, a famous artist (paintings). I don't know when he said that or why Sammy quoting it, though.

    I'll use that quote once in a blue moon because it is so true. If you understand something, there is NO need to discuss it. That was one of the better things Sammy said in concert.

    The funniest story was from the Costa Mesa show in 1993 when he talks about some drunk guy was naked and thrown onto the stage.

    I always thought he was saying that "Jump" was a bad-ass TUNE. And, he said it that way because in prior years, he hadn't realy wanted to do Roth's signature tune (Jump). So, "regardless of any bad blood or bullshit between the singers, Jump is what it is. . .a bad-ass tune." And that's "understood."

    I'll tell ya 'what is understood, need not be discussed.' And that is that VH NEEDS DLR and DLR needs VH. Without this combination both are now doomed to obscuity.

    I remember hearing that "what is understood, need not be discussed" was actually in relation to DLR. Sammy (and the rest of VH) were fed up of VH fans continually asking about the days of Dave and the chances of a reunion one day. It was there way of saying that "ain't no fucken way you'll see Dave back in this band". It was around the time that Eddie was telling the media that Dave's dad was calling him to try and get Dave back in the band - anyone remember that?

    Man, what has happened to my band?

    Never thought I would say this, but I agree with VG 100%

    And Sammy butchered any Van HALEN song he ever attempted to sing.
