Might As Well Dump

Eddie Van Halen and Valerie Bertinelli are getting a divorce.

Good. Maybe now Eddie will stop sucking and start playing real guitar again.

Now EVH just needs to get back together with his first true love: sweet, sweet alcohol.

Maybe that would be enough to spur some rockin'.

... and his other true love: sweet, sweet cigarettes.

Love the links...

This might be the perfect time to debate the best VH album. I'll assume that NOBODY reading this blog has any love for the Hagar VH, so let's stick to the real stuff. I'll lob the first grenade:

While one, two, and Women & Children were watershed records (I think VHI was what I lost my virginity to), Fair Warning is the best. Two words, Mean Streets.

Discuss...

Chrispy said...

Come on, we all know it's "1984".

Proceed to yell at me.

Chrispy said...

I also think that anything recorded with Gary Cherone would rank amongst their best.

Proceed to ridicule.

Chrispy,

You must be wearing that black shiny rubber suit with the ball thing in you mouth ala "The Gimp" from Pulp Fiction to make such statements and you know what happened to the Gimp.

Chrispy said...

Well, I do like the synthesizer in "Jump".... but I was a keyboard geek in high school so I should be forgiven.

How about "Diver Down?"

Jackson said...

Tony knows well that I'm a Women and Childern First fan.

Any of the first four are great.

Diver Down is aptly titled, as it marks the downward spiral of VH.

The intro to Mean Streets is 30 seconds of some of the coolest guitar playing in rock history.

Unfortunately, it is followed by 4 minutes of the most mundane rock song in history.

I'm hard pressed to top Van Halen I.

Chrispy said...

Dave, it's a lot of pressure for you to try and top Van Halen 1. I say, work on your own music for the sake of the music, not to try and show up EVH and the boys.
