Van Halen is on of Americas most iconic and successful bands of all time in my opinion..I began making cassette recordings of still once played albums in high school and throughout college and medical school i was always hoping for more music from them. i could not be happier for these guys. seems like we have all gone through the same issues,then we finally "get it"..Eddie VH should have a PhD in guitar and Alex in percussion..plan on catching them in Tulsa and Memphis. GREAT TO SEE YOU GUYS BACK . grouling schedule..If any of you see this,take care of yourself and thanks for all the years of music i will always remember and tie to part of my life.My wife and I were playing my VH cassette on our first date and still listen today "on CD" like time has stood still. Best of luck.Dr Jay

I saw these guys at MSG this year and it was truly amazing. No BS they had the old U.F.O. lighting rig and the thunder of the old days. I could hear ringing well beyond 24hours after the show. Have to see them at the Izod center in NJ this July! I heard VH has so much material they could have released a double album. Roth wisely shot this idea down to make another album and tour again, smart man..
