    In 1984 I turned 19. Fresh outta high school and ready for the world. Now it's 2024 and I'll be 59 next month. One more year closer to death.

    I was hooked as soon as I saw the Jump video- I thought Eddie and Dave were the coolest people on earth at just 9 years old at the time. It was only later that I learned how good Eddie was as a musician, songwriter, guitarist (and that appreciation has grown each year since then and continues to grow). And just beginning to like girls really had me obsessed with the Hot for Teacher video. And of course Panama was great too. I could not wait to see any of those 3 videos every chance I could get when watching TV. and then it crashed/burned. Didn't appreciate the next era until Ou812
    Wolfie is not Mike, but he's more than ok.
    Mike is gone, but not forgotten. They played some amazing shows from 2007-2015; some people are in denial about it.

    I would have liked 5150 better without Why Can't This Be Love. True story.

    Was working at a One Hour Photo Lab when Jump was premiered by either Kid Leo or Denny Sanders (maybe Matt the Cat... can't remember) on WMMS 100.7.

    Me and the girl I worked with both heard the keyboards and looked at each other with WTF looks on our faces and pretty much both said... "That can't fucking be Van Halen... did they say it was new Van Halen?"

    I think a lot of VH fans were "concerned" when they heard Jump. I have always liked the song and loved the 1984 album.
