    Balance was released 7 years ago today.

    So since then they recorded 2 songs, kicked Dave out. And released VH III.

    So in a nutshell in 7 years, two songs and one album. [img]graemlins/sleep.gif[/img]

    BOV1 and the remasters do not count as doing something. Those were just make money, kill time, do no work tactics. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Don't forget "Humans Being" and though only credited to Ed 'n Al - "Respect The Wind" - could probably toss that "That's Why I Love You" everyone's always talkin' 'bout in there, too!

    I became a fan right around that time. Maybe I cursed them. [img]redface.gif[/img]

    You became a fan around the time of their last great release, Dan Halen. As much as I'm a Dave-era fan, I think BALANCE is an incredible album! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I'll second that! I'll be watching the PPV in 7 as well. Can't believe that was the second to last show that they would end up doing together. What a waste.

    Guys, I saw Balance in Edmonton Sept.11/95. Freaky huh? That was something I thought about momentarily on Sept.11/01...
    God Speaks to us through the Bible. If He could play the guitar, he'd play it through Eddie Van Halen.

    I was at the Balance show in Ottawa. I think it was Aug.20th 1995, unbelievably wicked show. I was in general admission and the crowd was absolutely rockin that night. Lot's of pot, a couple of foreworks and Mike throwing Heineken into the crowd-TOTALLY AWESOME!!!! Sammy was unbelievably animated taht night and really egged on the crowd. At the end of the show he promised they would be back but I guess we all know how that story turned out.

    I was at the Pay-Per-View show in Toronto. It was a great show! I still felt like I was seeing more of a journeyman's Van Halen, but it was a very fun show. I was a little disappointed when I watched the pay-per-view and saw that several songs were cut out. From the version I have (from Canadian Pay-Per-View) they cut out AFTERSHOCK, JUMP, YOU REALLY GOT ME, AIN'T TALKIN' 'BOUT LOVE, the RUNNIN' WITH THE DEVIL/ONE WAY TO ROCK thingy and the bass solo. Oh well. It's still a great show, but trust me. It was even more exciting being in the audience by the lake than watching it on T.V.!! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
