Van Halen

Van Halen! Where showmanship meets talent in one giant supernova of brilliance.  For me Van Halen took everything to a new level.  They had the flash of Zeppelin without all the self indulgence.  You cannot listen to Van Halen and be in a shit mood.

Coming out of Pasadena, California in the early 70’s Van Halen moved from being California’s biggest party band to one of the most successful bands in the world.  I discuss Van Halen a lot and the fall out with Dave and the Sammy Hagar years are all put in context.  As a high school kid I was Van Halen befok, we all were, they just had the whole good times rock ‘n’ roll thing down to perfection.  Eddie was a guitar god and I blame him entirely for helping me realise that when it came to playing guitar I didn’t have a fucking clue 🙂   If you want a brilliant book on Van Halen check  out http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/24694185-van-halen-rising
