    In 1978, I was 14 years old for the first 364 days.

    It has been said that whatever a guy loves when he is 14 years old, he will love for the rest of his life. I'm here to tell you that is the 100% truth.

    On Fire. Pretty much heavier than anything else out in 78. The whole band literally on fire.

    On my first listen in 1978, Atomic Punk and ATBL were my two favorites with Eruption.

    So true. After I turned 14, in October of 1969, it was the Mighty Led Zeppelin II album that shaped my Rock music future. I still love excellent Hard Rock to this day. The Bar was set high on that night in 1969... It blew my mind.

    And, it was until a night in February of 1978, that my mind was ever blown away again by a first listening to an album.

    The best debut in rock. It's perfect. Starting off with the horns sounding like the VH spaceship landing on earth. Life was never the same after that.

    I was only 7 when it came out, so it wasn't until a couple years later that I truly discovered VH. A friend down the street had a cassette of it and I automatically liked it. Never played guitar but I was drawn to Ed's sounds.

    To pick a favorite song is nearly impossible. They've all, at one time or another, been my favorite. The first one that came to mind was Atomic Punk, so I guess we'll go with that one...for now.

    Think of all the professional rock guitarists at the time.

    I bet 99% of them when they heard the album were like "holy shit, how many guitarists do they have?"
    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!
