    It's not Van Halen at all. It is rumored to be a song by a band called The Boyz. I think that's what they were called. This was an early band with George Lynch on guitar. I'm a huge Lynch fan, and have read several interview's of his, and have not read any mention of The Boyz. Not that he hasn't though. The Inside played the songs for Ed and Mikey over the phone, and they pretty much said it isn't them. There are several boots floating around that still claim it's Van Halen. If you really listen closely, you can tell it's not them. The drums,vocals, and guitar playing just don't seem to jive as Van Halen. Anyway maybe that will help you. Out.

    Yeah, I have a couple of boots... and you're right... the sound doesn't "jive".

    The cover to the Looney Tunes boot says its and early George Lynch band, but I'm skeptical.

    George Lynch is second only to Eddie as far as having a signature sound. Think about it. Does it really sound like Lynch? Unless he did some serious learning, "Black Star" does not sound like George or Ed.

    No way Ed and Al could be covering up?

    That's a valid point Para. I hear what you're saying about Lynch. Not very much in his style. Who really knows? I'll give him a call out in Tuscon, see what he says. LOL. Thought that was a cool story about him and Jake E. Lee sitting on the same flight together to go try out for Ozzy after Randy had passed. Out.
