    G'damn. I think the original outfit sounded their best on the VH2 tour. I mean right on point.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    So weird DOA was never a staple. Only a little on the '78 tour, a little at the very beginning the VHII tour, and a little in '82. Gay.
