Everybody wants some.

My sister came to see me at work today. She said, "You poor dear. You have to stand around in flip flops and tank tops and listen to Van Halen all day."

I take so much shit for liking Van Halen as much as I do. For instance: Coworker: I can't get over how bad this song (Panama) sucks.
Other Coworker: Are you in your mid 40's and reliving your heyday?

Their double disc, Best of Both Worlds (Hagar and Roth, get it?) landed in the store stereo somehow and I am the only one rockin out to it. A guy came in and told me, "Honest to God, I haven't been in a Tower since 1985. And the last time I was in here, they were playing Van Halen."

I thought that was awesome. He said he'd come back in 2025 to see if it would occur again. I hope it does.

Van Halen RULZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey I found your BLOG thru Technorati and I was just doing a random search on key words and you popped up. I am 32 and I remember the first time I heard Van Halen in 84 when JUMP was the #2 song and it was the best summer as a kid that I remember. I was hazed in my teens for liking VH, and at that time Speed Metal was big, well long story short when I was in those teen years I use to buy everything that was VH (mags, necklaces, backpatches, etc) I was a nut for their music. There was a time in history when they were on top. But to conclude this comment to you I commend you on your taste of music.......

Which part of VH illustrious career of lead singers do you like? I will always like DLR, but Sammy has some good chops and Garry Cherone had a couple of good tunes (besides sounding like Sammy) I think they should have made more songs with Roth to just satisfy the Roth-era VH'ers....what other bands do you like? Any European Rock bands i.e. Helloween, Running Wild, etc?
