    The flaw in that article is to think that those other bands that Eddie, Alex and Mike had were Van Halen - 'Crossing Over'???!!> Wind and piss from a film about fcking wind and rain

      Gotta give props to this article for recognizing "You and Your Blues" which should have been a hit and is the song my sister calls "The Divorced Man's Anthem" (A group of us split with our wives around the same time and these women were all a little....off.)

        Actually, Crossing Over isn't from the Twister soundtrack.. it was a b-side from the Japanese release of balance.. it's actually a cool track. Ed plays electric drums on one side and Al plays acoustic drums on the other.. I also seem to recall that Ed basically wrote the tune, although I could be mistaking, but it doesn't sound like pure cheese.

          Dude - it is!!!

          It's on the closing credits of the film (it might not be on the soundtrack album - I dunno).

          It might be Ed and Al, but it ain't Van Halen ...!

            The song played during the closing credits of Twister is an instruMENTAL (emphasis on mental for Ed's over use of the sustainer) called Respect The Wind. Al on piano.

              My mistake, DLRB - but I stand by my original point.

              Anything that was labelled 'Van Halen' outside of the DLR era is, basically, wind and piss ...! I mean, even without Hagar, as well, they were more or less lost, rudderless ... gahd, so much for Eddie "it's me that writes all the music". Yeah, and your singers turn it into fcking songs!!

                Correct, and it is the only Van Hagar song I am able to listen to now. It is basically the song "When Love Comes Walking In" but with some cool guitar effects and no cheezy lyrics, dealing about seeing someone in the afterlife... but it is not real Van Halen!

                  And yes, Eddie just provides these odd riffs and the singer constructed all the fragments into a actual song... Eddie's so called vault does not have completed songs but odd recordings of bits and not to be confused with a guy like Prince who does actually have over a thousand songs in his vault

                    Absolutely but I felt it merited posting as it was Rolling Stone and positive.

                      Ghey. Imagine the fucking nerve of placing the Hagar AND VH III years in their bullshit list.

                      You should be ashamed that you posted this, Sesh. Ashamed enough that you apologize and self-ban for 90 days.
