    What tune did you hear on a boot that just rocked your world? Surprized and Delighted you? Made you want to start a garage bar band? Made you jump on your bed and try to do the splits?
    I'd have to say that "Lucille" in '81 just floored me.Wow. "Jean Genie" in '76 was pretty amazing, too.
    In a live setting, I remember when Van Hagar played "Mississippi Queen" in the middle of YRGM--whoa that was too cool.

    I know a lot of people hate it, but I just love Romeo Delight off of the US Festival. "I forgot the fucking words".

    People who don't like DLR seem to get a lot of milage outa the 'forgot the fuckin words' thing... I really dont think its a case of him forgetting the words, its just part of his show.. y'know. Geez I'm havin so much fun here, who needs lyrics?
    Its just too predictable in the way he delivers it to be genuine IMHO

    Just because of the rumors of the last few months, it's funny that Dave mentions David Coverdale in the 1980 London Invasion bootleg.

    I totally dig their cover of "The Rover" on the Goldenwest Ballroom boot even better than the Zep original. If there had been such a thing as MTV's latest show , best cover band (did anyone see this crap?), Van Halen would have killed. Just to hear Ed tear up other people's songs makes them an awesome cover band.

    AMEN kpl!!! Sometimes mentioning "covers" will bring people to nearly cry. I also dig Van Rothin's version of "Hots on for noone"--I'd love to hear them doin'"Houses of the Holy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    Some bootleg highlights for me (no particular order):

    1.) The extended versions of Ain't Talkin' Bout Love during the 1978 Japan tour.

    2.) The cover of Summertime Blues during the 1983 South American tour.

    3.) Cover of Born on a Bayou during F.U.C.K. tour

    4.) Cover of Rockin' In The Free World during RHRN tour

    5.) 5150 (extended version)

    We Die Bold is an awesome song, either on Goldenwest or the WB demo. It's probably on other live boots from that era too. It's a great song.

    Lets Get Rockin slams!!! Get the Show on the Road is very cool too...and i love the cover they did of sweet emotion in the 1976 Live at the Aero Bogarts boot....the long, cool intro eddie does with a delay pedal mimicking the songs intro, but he adds his own thing...would love to see aeromsith trying to play VH songs whn they were 21! LOL..hell, id like tosee em try it now!
