I use this name all over the internet, so if you've heard of The Elfoid_TFS before, it's me again. I don't normally mention that, but someone from the Blaze Bayley forums has already recognised me on here, and I didn't expect that to happen. Just call me Elf.

I'm a young (just shy of 20) year old British guy. So my knowledge of David Lee Roth, Van Halen, and all related topics is largely a retrospective, historical thing. My collection of appropriate media is pretty slim I'll admit - I've got Van Halen, Van Halen II, 1984, 5150, For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge, Best Of Volume I, Chickenfoot and Skyscraper (that's the version of Skyscraper with the two Crazy From The Heat songs tacked onto it). And yes I know some of that's Hagar stuff, but hey, might as well put it in here. I've read a hundred VH websites and magazine articles and own the 2008 updated edition of the "Everybody Wants Some" book. I have a bunch of bootlegs too....VH US Festival '83, Roth gigs from 86, 88, 99 and 04, and two VH ones with Sammy from 95....I really mean to get some CVH ones but just haven't gotten around to it.

For my age, I'd say I've seen a lot of major bands. In terms of the classic rock/oldschool metal field you guys probably dig, Iron Maiden, Velvet Revolver, Heaven & Hell, Aerosmith, Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Whitesnake, ZZ Top, Status Quo, Chris Cornell, Crowded House, Peter Gabriel, Motorhead, Saxon, AC/DC, Megadeth, Judas Priest, Helloween, Iced Earth, Thunder, Wishbone Ash, Tygers Of Pan Tang, U.K. Subs, Squeeze, Eddy Grant, Girlschool, Annihilator, Overkill, Destruction, Soulfly, Praying Mantis, Blitzkrieg, Tesla, Anvil, Lawnmower Deth are among the bands I've seen. My favourite music tends to be blues rock, electric blues, the heavier, dirtier side of glam metal - 80s-era Crue, W.A.S.P. and Ratt for example - and NWOBHM. But I dig a ton of stuff other than that (like Van Halen!).

Hell's teeth...what else? Oh, most of you are, I imagine, American or Canadian, yeah? Well in September I'm gonna start reading American & Canadian Studies so anyone who knows a lot about history, economics, politics, film or literature let me know so you can help me get ahead of the game or get help when the course gets tough! I'll be studying at the University of Birmingham <3

Oh and I love people, all of you are beautiful I'm sure.

Hi and welcome. :)

If you see TP on the Blaze forum please convey to him that John Silver thinks he's still a loser and pointless twat. :)

My memory of TP, both there and on IronMaiden.com is not too positive. Though I may be wrong - I've not been on either in some time in any active sense.

I'm legal to drink in the UK, but at the age of 19, am I legal where you are? :P

Looks like you would have been 10 when I began posting on IM. Those were the days... I bailed in 03 when the noobs swamped the place. Haven't bothered with it in years.

Oh, forgot to mention...I did a ton of work to the Van Halen pages on Wikipedia. A lot of data entry (discographies, tour dates etc.)....the main Van Halen article still has patches with my writing in it (which now looks horrible to me, as these things always do once I have a little hindsight) but a lot of other pages are all my work. Particularly pleased with how a lot of the tables I put together turned out, I've referred to them myself quite often:
Van Halen concert tours - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Van_Halen_concert_tours)
Sammy Hagar discography - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sammy_Hagar_discography)
David Lee Roth - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Lee_Roth) (the tables only - discography)

Sometime I'll go back and assault the main David Lee Roth page. Van Halen gets edited by morons so much that I don't have the energy to go back to it.

Big hug and big welcome from Blaze Bayley's very own Dark Lady!

In case you haven't noticed, this place is far different than Blaze's site.


And all of you quit talking about TP like that. He just adores me so he can't be all bad:biggrin:

He might but I also remember him chasing every female he could in between lusting after Blaze and Janick. Last I remember he was playing 'mentor' to a 14 year old called Megan.

Read my announcement on any of the forums... If you find any CVH/DLR dates that I wasn't able to find and aren't in the calendar, PM me...

No fucking Hagar era.... Don't even think about the More Than Words guy...

Ya think I'm bothered about it being unwelcome and leading to abuse? I wanna get along with people on here and make some friends, but that doesn't mean I won't stand by my beliefs. And as I said, I do think Roth is a million times better, but I figured I might as well get my secret shame of being a Sammy fan out of the way early so I can control the reputation damage!

I doubt I'll find any you don't know about. I tend to go to the well known sites and just convert their information into an easy to access, easy to read form on Wikipedia since it's nice to have it all on the one website.

That was a nicely written discourse, and so I'll sincerely welcome you. But any Spamella worshipping might be met with harsh words. Leave your larve for man boobs at the door, grab a beer &... drink? Party? Masticate? Have your choice, m'boy.

And do check the Dump, where some us like to live.

You spoke English so well for a bit. What happened Juju?

BTW, did you know Juju is my pet name for my self?
Does it have a meaning in French?

You are, maybe, from France, if I remember correctly. Or was it Morocco or Egypt, one of those Middle Eastern French speaking countries. Sorry, I don't remember you so well. :(

Nobody posts there.

The place is gonna end up like The Sheep Pen.

From a forum full of threads to a single thread that nobody cares about.

Even that hitch dude bailed and left you people years ago.
