    Fair Warning - Worst VH Tribute Band EVER!

    I saw a VH tribute band from Chicago last week. They were called Fair Warning. The guitarist was good enough, but lacked that natural groove Ed has. The bass player... Well you really can't fuck up many of Mike's parts so he held it down ok. The drummer wasn't even close and couldn't keep up with the rest. The singer looked like old Dave on crack. He spent 45 minutes off the stage prancing through the crowd. Dave would have never left the spotlight or the stage like that.

    D- performance. Only $5, but I want that $5 back.

    Could have been worse, it could have been a Sam tribute.

    Then we would have you say how you keep waking up screaming each night.

    I saw Fair Warning like 7 years ago, and they rocked the house. Much better than the boring Atomic Punks. Plus the Punks do Sammy shit now, posers!

    I don't know what disappoints me more....

    The fact you slung your beef into a Hagarita, or because you didn't take a wrist-rocket and a pocket full of ball bearings to the "show"...

    Shame!

    Not joking. They were not good. Maybe it was an off night for them or something. I was pumped to go to the show and hear the old tunes, but the fact of it is they didn't do the tunes justice. The drummer was waaaay off. They sounded like they haven't practiced in months. One good thing about it..... Seeing them made me feel better about my Who/Tommy project. I'd rather see the Atomic Punks. Are they really playing the Crapgar stuff now? If so, that sucks.

    The Punks still do DLR stuff but they play with the guy from OU812 as well. It sucks Ralph quit the Punks. The new guy isn't bad but he's no Ralph. Ralph brought that shit like the real deal. AP are the best tribute band I've ever seen. I saw them pull out the coolest shit....DOA, Women In Love, On Fire..stuff VH nor Dave has touched in decades..if ever.

    I kind of find it hard to slag on someone who is promoting Classic Van halen, even if they are bad.

    Bringing this back from the dead (sorry!).

    Season 24, episode 109 of Judge Judy (airdate Jan. 9, 2020) featured Plaintiff Jay Hotrum
    (vocals) suing Defendant Nathan Keefer (drums) over the alleged theft of musical equipment
    (speakers).

    Hotrum was a hot mess. Presented a piece of paper as evidence saying "I brought this as
    a gift to you." There was talk of trademark of the Fair Warning name and who had rights and
    so on.

    For those of you interested in Fair Warning related info - NOTE: (I am not affiliate with FW
    in any way. I watch Judge Judy at work on lunch break and thought the VH connection
    was a happy coincidence.)
