    Default Crazy voice at end of Fire In The Hole

    I'm sorry if I am posting this question and it's already on here, but I can't find info on VH III. I was just wondering if anyone knew who's voice was at the end of "Fire In The Hole" that sounds like a crazy man panicking?
    Again, sorry if this is already somewhere and I missed it.
    June. 1984. Kemper Arena. Kansas City, Mo. My very first concert. The lights go out. The spotlights rotate over the crowd while a wailing guitar overtakes the screams and cheers. The opening riff of "Unchained" begins as a lone spotlight illuminates Eddie Van Halen. By himself. I was never the same after that.

    You mean the one saying Scripture such as "rudder or ship which sets the course/does not the bit bridle the horse" etc, as the song fades out?

    That is Gary Cherone.

    Yeah. It sounds like at one point, he screams "Fire! Smoke! Flames!" That's Gary?!

    So I guess it's Al, Mike and ED, also towards the end, repeating Fire in the Hole?

    Hmmm, I'm gonna have to listen to it again since I dont remember "fire, smoke, flames" at all during the fade out, nor do I recall backing vocals there either.

    I know in addition to the Scripture I posted before, Gary says a couple other lines traced back to the Bible:

    "Bright is the forest set by a small flame, like a tongue on fire no one can tame"

    Definitely Gary. No backing vocals during that part. Always loved Ed's guitar at the end of that tune.

    Beauty is life when life unveils
    her holy face.

    But you are life and you
    are the veil.

    Beauty is eternity gazing at itself
    in a mirror.

    But you are eternity
    and you are the mirror.

    -Kahil Gibran

    Isn't there a part where a voice says 'Mike, you should do this' or something at the start of the outro?

    Since I have probably never listened to the entire song, no clue.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

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

    Oh yeah I completely forgot about the CB voices there. Pretty sure that is Gary, Ed, and Mike talking back n forth. That outro is pretty badass. Ed's guitar sounds so awesome and mean.

    I always thought it was Mike saying "We got fire in the hole" and Ed or Al said "Mike! You shouldn't do that"! Sounds like something he'd do.

    That's what I meant. Sounds like someone saying "We gotta fire in the hole" at the end with numerous other "fire in the hole" references.

    It's Gary at the end and a bit which sounds like Ed talking. I actually didn't want the song to stop at the end I liked where it was headed I wanted them to keep jamming.

    I wish the video for this was in higher quality on Youtube. I never got to see this on MTV back in the day and the music video wasn't on the DVD or Blu-ray of Lethal Weapon 4.

    Gary acts like he has had to much espresso in the video but that's Gary. It's a good video though just wish there was a higher quality version out there and the Once video.

    I have the Van Halen DVD greatest hits with Without You video and that's high quality.

    the lyrics at the very end, the part that starts with "rudder of ship which sets the course", was that a bible verse? I remember hearing that a long time ago but never followed up on it
