For the first time in perhaps ever, The Mighty Van Halen are forced to take an "L". When Dave can't seem to keep "monkey hour" in check on live TV, all future plans with him are put on ice. However, we did get a couple new tracks out of the deal. That was cool. This episode is all about the proverbial "he said, she said bullshit".…
 
They did it! Van Halen held their own against the grunge tide. While many of their contemporaries fell under the wheel of the new "corporate rock" paradigm shift, Eddie and Co. managed to keep their trajectory. For a while. All that goes up, must come down. I think that's in the Bible somewhere. Cracks are starting to form in the once impenetrable …
 
1991 was a strange year for pop music. "Grunge" was in. 80's metal was out. Unless that is you were actually a 70's metal band who happened to influenced a lot of these Seattle upstarts. This is where Van Halen finds themselves at the turn of the decade. Ascending to "Elder Statesman" status while still keeping it in the top 10. Perhaps that is why…
 
Hello baaaaaaaaby! Van Halen Mach 2. Van Hagar. Whatever you want to call it, smells like somebody stepped in hit. Junior Gen Xers like ourselves welcomed Sammy with optimism. We also stayed in touch with Dave. As far as we were concerned, it was joint custody. The band now found themselves with a fresh set of downs and a pocket full of plays Eddie…
 
The middle of the 80's found VH at a fork in the road. Pack it up or soldier on. One of those was never actually an option. Who could step into these be-dazzled, platform shoes? Very famous/not famous names were thrown around and jam sessions were had. But nothing "jived" until they hooked up with the "Voice Of America" himself, Samuel Roy Hagar. T…
 
Van Halen was poised to take over the world in late 1983. Eddie had just finished his new "5150" studio and was enjoying the creative freedoms that came with it. Alex had finally found that drum sound he'd been looking for. Dave was wondering if he needed these dudes at all. Last, but not least, Michael manages to get screwed over by EVERYBODY. End…
 
Do you love it when Van Halen does a cover song? Do you have sheep in need of hiding? Is 5150 Studio still technically a "racquetball court" in the eyes of the Los Angeles Permitting Department? We answered none of these questions but we tried really hard. In fact, I'd say we gave this episode the "Full Bug".…
 
Well, well, well. Isn't this the episode we've all been waiting for? Hands down, our favorite Van Halen album unanimously. No shit. We named the show after it. Join us as we try to contain ourselves while gushing all over this record. Want fair and balanced coverage? Go somewhere else. We love this shit.…
 
You just had one of the hottest debut albums ever. You have opened for your heroes and blown them off the stage. What next? Sit back and take it all in? We think not. Time to get right back into the studio and do it all over again. Strap in. Van Halen won't be taking their foot off the gas anytime soon.…
 
Join Augie, Chris, and Jared as they dig deep into the making of Van Halen's first album and the tours that followed. How did Eddie get the idea for the iconic striped guitar? Where did Diamond Dave get all those moves? What will guitar players in the 70's going to do now that the book has been rewritten? Tune in and find out as we delve into the h…
