    Don't you think that "BOBW"(from 1986) has very similar riff to Kool and the gang song "Celebration"(from...1980)????
    So, Eddie saw this one on mtv and...used???

    I believe that lots of songs sound like lots of songs. I don't let it bother me. But now that you mention it, BOBW does sound like a Celebration rip off, but I love it anyway.

    Yup, and if you listen to "Black And Blue" it really comes close to "Rock And Roll Ain't Noise Pollution" by AC/DC.

    It happens.

    And if I recall correctly, in regards to the two mentioned above, Eddie did say those two songs were inspiration to the musical structure of the Van Halen songs.
    In and out. I didn't even make that pun on purpose.

    I seem to recall at the time of release that some critics were comparing the BOBW riff to "Roundabout" by Yes.

    Also, I recently read an article in Mix Magazine with Daryl Hall from "Hall & Oates" in which he claims: "[Eddie] Van Halen told me that he copied the synth part from ‘Kiss on My List’ and used it in ‘Jump.’ I don't have a problem with that at all."

    I had never heard that one before! :-) You can read the full article here: http://mixonline.com/mag/audio_hall_...ant/index.html

    Like Eddie says, "there's only 12 notes... how you mix them up is up to you."
    Homer: No one snuggles with Max Power. Just strap on and feel the Gs!

    American Coast Guard: Back off Canadians we got them.
    Canadian Coast Guard: You back off hosers, they are in Canadian waters, eh.
    American Coast Guard: Beat it you puck smacking maple suckers!
    Canadian Coast Guard: Take a hike you Shatner stealing Mexico touchers!

    Bart: Who the hell is this?
    Jack Bauer: I’m Jack Bauer, who the hell is this?
    Bart: Me, er… I’m Ahmed Adudi
    Jack: Chloe, get me all you can on Ahmed Adudi… Does anyone there know Ahmed Adudi?
    Chloe O’Brien: Ahmed Adudi; wealthy Saudi financier… Disappeared into Afghanistan in the late 90s…
    Jack: … Really?
    Chloe (ironically): No Jack it’s a joke name, you’re being set up.
    Jack: DAMMIT!
