Forgot I was suppose to be doing this chronologically 🙂
So forward to 1983 and the a big, ballsey rocker from Van Halen!!!! (Ha, surprised you!) I had a phase of loving Van Halen and especially enigmatic front man Dave Lee Roth. My old school mate, Mark Killiner thought he was actually him and got me into the band via their breathtaking debut album, “Van Halen” from 1978. So they went all commercial and embraced the synth for their major hit “Jump” this was building up to it and released just before, off the album , “1984”. Okay some regular followers will hate it, other will nod and acknowledge the wide taste shown on this blog. I still have a bit of room for some classic poodle hair rock in my musical palette. Not even extended or remixed with a couple of album tracks as B-sides. The traditional rock n roll of “Dance The Night Away” from “Van Halen 2” and the more interesting “Girl Gone Bad.” with a great Eddie guitar solo.
