You as a ban had to be gratifying to like right this and release it as your first single on the first album with the new singer and having dislike blow up and be all over the place in nineteen eighty six we all right. We made a decision working out by now. Listen to it wasn't a SAM get high here. It's still the students keyboard thing back there hager had a really rain. And and a fatal and the fatal. We've gone through our Our. Of our favorite songs and here we go to number five in this issue number six sorry number neighbors say this this is the fifth one left and this breaks the mold of all the other ones of all the Eddie van Halen Song is this is one is totally different than all the other it is but as any van Halen do do you even want to introduce this or you just want to let it play you tell me this is the one you picked I'll tell me how you want to start it and then we'll talk through it tells us okay. This was one of Jason's top five Eddie Van halen songs. Okay. Here we go. Okay. Hail. That have been hailstone that's because it's not why is that not sound like a van Halen Jason So. When Michael Jackson was ready to record this album right. which by the way became the number one album that year. And Dan Halen at the number two spot. Quincy Jones. Called Eddie Van Halen. And ask him if he would come play on. Michael Jackson. Eddie van Halen did an interview about this two, thousand twelve where he said who the fuck. You're. Busy me was a real deal. A. Beer for this. Ridiculous. Right. They gave him a song and he said, can I do anything I want to do? In the engineer equity, you do whatever you want to do. So. Michael Jackson leaves the room, and so Eddie van Halen says there. Moves the bridge around like Changes Organization of Michael Jackson's Sawn. In place the Solos you know thing L. Jackson comes back in as creative Halen and him for doing it. What's amazing to me is that this became one of the most iconic and popular songs of all time all time Yeah Eddie Van Halen. Not only played the guitar. So on the rearranged, the song unbelievable that that's insane to me even hailing had a story that. He was in tower record. When the came out. Walking through tower records. And beat it is playing. A whole bunch of these kids are standing over there and one of them says, listen to that guy trying to sound like Eddie. And Eddie says he walked up the kid on the shoulder they all turn around and go holy shit he goes. That's actually me guys talk. What what I think is so cool about this syphon everything else I just said is you've got to completely different genres of music totally. In there You would never. You would never see something like that I don't think any more out of the idea that like the hottest guitar player ever is playing on Michael Jackson, he's got this whole thing in the interview we talked Quincy Calls Him and he's got the like old Jackson five stuff going through his heading is like what the hell could they possibly want me to play. It's far. Where we fit into this thing, you know it was kind of disco stuff that all the. There's a there's a great video kids. If you're interested that you can go find on Youtube in it's actually Eddie van Halen on stage with Michael Jackson his band playing the song. and. It's Phenomenal, Michael Jackson. Stuff you know I think it's so cool. Just you can't think about any been and and his influence on everything and not realize it.

"Fade guys just on a song. This is your first time to listen to our podcast. Welcome Michael I hate the fade. When a song fades we will call it out. Curse, we'll look at each other crossley. We absolutely will. Fade more than anything else and I'm not sure that anyone faded out more than men, Haley. Did they did a lot of fade outs especially during it's like really hard to say fuck. Hong. The producer just. So. Funny. So we've had some fun. We were in the same period for a while, and then we went forward and now we're GONNA go back to the album before the we are we just listen to in this. So this was an easy selection for me I grew up when we were talking earlier about Van Halen being on MTV and being on the radio. This is one of those songs that was always on Yes is one of those I mean you've heard me walking around the office for the last week trying to rock out the opening riffs to this because it's so much fun to play. This is a great song I read an interview with Roth where he said that a this is Panama by the way. A car in he said the car Panama is a country but this is a song about song about a car into he was interview. He said reporter said why do you only write songs about girls partying and fast partying in fast cars and he said he realized different song about a fast car. So he decided wrestling about a car. So I guess the reporter gets credit for the fact that we have this. Yeah. Yeah. On any other list made by the WHO's Van Halen Fan. Panama could be number one on that list. This is the consummate. Although it's not my number one track but this I think you could make the argument that this is the consummate David. Lee Roth Era van Halen I this week's all. Yeah, this trump either one I mean, this is these are hooks and this is all over the place and this is but this is Eddie van Halen and this is Eddie van Halen his. This. Is Eddie Van Halen kicking off the there's no act left when he's in the studio after this, they all had to go home. The asked was gone kicked tone and Rhythm and rift and everything about song is awesome. Sommese. wearable yet. So he doesn't these little things like we're here. Bills that he throws. Yeah and and that's what's infuriating guitar player is. Because I can play most of this. And then he throws in those little risks when the. gammit. Now, I gotta go work on this forever you know. So heavy and it's so cold, but it's also so. So fiery down like so much fire underneath `these so much energy mandated. That trophic row back there. Walmart. And, this is worth I'm Michael Anthony.

"I think you're right about that but also think there's most like these bands they record these albums they spend all this time together in the. In personalities are going to kick in at some point seeming Egger had whether you like the music or not had recorded on his own had done on stuff before. So it wasn't like they. Picked him up out of high school or something yeah. He was the news. Know he was eight years older than any yeah. He was an older guy doing this for a while right? It starts with Montrose was nineteen seventy-three. So this is someone who has been established and they brought him on I mean he he had the Lamborghini before he started playing faneuil. Right. So I would imagine that there's a lot of tension. You guys record a couple of albums and he the Helen Brothers going. This is how we do it and he's got come on guys I've been doing this for a while I know what I'm up to you know. Regardless, but there was a tension that he was out. So you're talking about a band at the pinnacle of success at the timing. These guys were huge huge massive world tour they've got endorsements in. All over the radio. But once again, music has changed back to what we just talked about. So the the. The world that they released. For unlawful carnal knowledge into in ninety one is not the same musical world when they get out and released their live album and ninety three, it is changed dramatically changed dynamically different. So so completely different what they started with and. As we have chronicle before as bans get out and you start playing on a nightly basis and when tensions rise and you start fighting if you don't have an allegiance to this thing in the brothers decide you're no longer needed here you are no longer. Removed and there was a do you think maybe there's a little bit of Hubris here as well on the part of the van Halen brothers that they were the biggest pain in the world and their singer left and they said fuck it, they hired another guy stayed the biggest being in the world. Got Grammy got even a little bit bigger and they all get along with Sammy Hager. Take. Hike Man we've done this before we do this again. Evidently singers are replaceable and Van Halen. We don't need you on this. We'll fight more hire somebody else no. Yeah, and then in an interview that Sammy Hagar had someone asks Kim. You know what? What are you GonNa do now that you know all this on you being kicked out and you know now that Eddie Van Halen has removed you from the Bay and his his quote was who the fuck is Eddie van Halen. Right right and so the shirt that I had. When I went to the concert at the Cynthia Woods pavilion. With. Roommate. Aaron. The shirt that he and I both had I was a picture of Eddie in the front flexing on the back it said who the fuck is even if I. Advocate, and that's what Eddie put out. They went out and got the singer for extreme. You'll remember extreme. Oh my goodness. One of the worst love ballads over. Yet in words. And words was Gary Sharon and a guy by the name of Nuno bettencourt due. In court yeah. The the video is. Lives in infamy I mean it's famously two guys sitting in a darkened room playing the song while the rest of the ban lounges around on the couch. And, it's a shame that If you're the rest of the band that that's the song they remember four because half the band didn't play in it. But Anyway, Nuno's not a whole hearted was a good song hard yet. All that was there other hit as well Not, a bad vocalist some range he's he's not a great guitar player whatever atmel abstract, Gary he's not a bad vocal. But Nuno was singing background he's. They're okay. Album that that almost balanced. They went out and got Jerry Jerry trend and that went nowhere absolutely nowhere. It was a really cool concert man I'm. Probably was in that close being able to see it even Helen, and the other thing was watching the Aaron be able to watch. Eddie. Even he wrote for from that close we literally within. Spitting distance, right you know. The Eddie, he was one of the first guys to take guitar picks and stick to guitar because he was constantly breaking them in looking out man we were looking for a pick pick a bit I e errands. One of those laidback dudes ever man I think he would what somebody's asked male or female if there'd been. Mitchelson billion A great place to see a show. It was great. It was great show. The fact that there are no. Balance that. I remember with Gary Sharon. Is. There were no. It's unfortunate because guy put on a hell of a fucking show I mean dates and aroused where David Lee Roth was a cheerleader for Eddie. Van Halen. Sure and Sammy. Hagar was doing jazzercise to. Eddie van Halen. Gary. Sharon was filled with this like angst and this light angry energy that they had never had before and he was jumping around. He was up on top of the stage on top of the risers jumping off he had the Freddie Mercury microphone where it was the my broken off and he was twirling it and stuff, and they tried some new things with that album trying to be trying to stay relevant with the changing times it. Was Halen Vein Hagar and it was this van Halen again, they're trying to be relevant. They're trying to write music that fits with the Times Dan. It was it was a noble effort but not anything the fans wanted right and so you know I think they parted with gary I understand very good terms right I mean I don't think they had any bad blood and maybe it didn't work out I think he ended up I think he. Billy houses he was. He got his money. So He's lost Gotcha Rimington's that my friends is the in as far as I'm concerned a van Halen. There there was a best of right. There's there's a best of Van Halen album that came out ninety six that had three new tracks. One of which was a song. With David Lee Roth for the first time since nicer hang training four called me wise magic that. Is Terrible, it's not a very good saw really not van Halen three came out in nineteen ninety eight. I. Don't remember a single song from that out of remember who the was on that. I never never listened to it I I don't know I couldn't couldn't tell you best of both worlds was their first best of album in two, thousand four. By this point they were getting ready to To. Kick. Michael Anthony Out and bring on any sunny son riffing. A different kind of truth came out in two thousand twelve I. Don't think I've ever even heard a song from that and then we ever listen to that live album. We're talking about from twenty fifteen Tokyo Dome live in concert. I we've given you a a history of of Van Halen just so we can get to this point where we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA get into our favorite five songs for Van Halen. have. We done just to Eddie van Halen in what he means and I hope so but I would say that we we probably could not right I mean there's there there are plenty of people that are so much so that he was such an important musician. into him that could probably Serrano podcast and talk for. Hours about. The first album. Yeah and obviously that's not what we're trying to accomplish here today which pay tribute to the Guy Amazing musician great story influence. So much stuff kicked out a lot of fantastic music tragic ending for a guy who means so much that literally has not contributed sue the overall zeitgeist of music literally the early nineties. Yeah and so I think he he's forgotten a lot There's probably a lot of kid on a WHO is and that's a shame. Yeah it it really is. We've taken a brief look at the at the life and times of Eddie. Eddie van Halen as as he exists or at least a how he exists within the periphery of what we mean when we say absolute greatness in music, we're GonNa take a short break.

"The biggest out, but it was the biggest now. Okay. In nineteen, eighty, four, they released nineteen four in January of nineteen, eighty-four they really. This is the iconic album with the angels smoking a pack of cigarettes smoking. There's a funny I. It's Amazon music is I think it's music I can't remember but you can look this album up whichever music setters forget, and he's got a picture of the Angel Smoking cigarettes in the description of the album is. Digital The van Halen like to do a lot of coke in the eighties. Like somebody hit edited that which is I think absolutely hilarious but they did a lot of COQ So in Nineteen eighty-four, this comes out it's not a particularly long album I think there's only eight or nine tracks on it every single track in the south was awesome. It was. Offshoots at this was the last album by the way had an instrumental on it. Every single album to this point had an instrumental literally cities something. Yeah. and that was the very the opening track on this thing, and after that, then the real opening track was a song called jump in jump was huge but jump did not include any starting out on guitar. Yes. This is where we get the keyboard. So he returns back to the piano, and so he's playing these these synthesizers and suddenly David. Lee Roth is something that he was a caricature before like you were talking. You give us a break. Dave Won- rate. That will thing but suddenly would jump. This, was huge i. mean it was massive. This is the thing that was on MTV, constantly. Head they got a couple of grammys or something for this. If I remember correctly I don't. Well, it's a funny thing. So this album ended up on billboard as the number two album of that year. And it was beat by number. One was Michael Jackson beat it. That's right. Hold that thought back. We're GONNA come back to that second. David Lee Roth and Eddie and Alex end up having a fight Michael. Anthony's on the sidelines heat poor Michael kind of caught up in the middle of this thing. He's like the Nice Guy that just like sit there and drink. Keep, doing this guy's this is so much fun where we are we arguing about this. Deal are decides he's out and so they kick him out and so van Halen starts looking around we're going to fill. In look at maybe Patti Smith they look try be having just rotating senior. Yeah. They end up with they ended up with a guy by the name of Sammy Hagar. Former lead singer of on Straw Tros. Solo. As well yeah, and he was quite successful in his own right he was a song called. I can't drive fifty five which was huge I'm sure everybody's heard. His whole thing he was called the red rocker lots lots of leather big fluffy hair and. Curly bouncy hair thing had gone whereas David Lee Roth was was kinda gloomy I was kind of joking. that. Sammy Hager when he came in he, he presented almost like a woman where he had like Jazzercise Leeann. Had like this looks is shirt off the shoulder stuff with. Exactly big fluffy hair and he's like real tone dot is and he duly big high kicks stuff in lights Oh like exercising I. Think I think famously Eddie met him at their a Lamborghini or Ferrari mechanic like that's exactly right. Had the same limbering eighty yeah. The same mechanic introduced the two guys to each other. It's other styles of Nineteen eighty-four and fifty one fifty, which is the first album that semi hair was on Wait different nine hundred four was the year fifty, one, fifty by the way in case you were wondering is the California code for if you have someone who's crazy and has to be committed. Also the name of Eddie's in house studio which he named after the code. Yeah, and then his his his amplifier that built, right correct, and then sticking with that after a fifty one, fifty came about they wanted to stick with kind of this number code thing and so they went with the Eight one. Oh you eight, one two, which begins the first of two rather lewd if you think about them album. Very much. So Oh, you ate one too was. was really the end I think of kind of that Halcion van Halen days sure where that was the end and. Even. The record company that they've been haloed was on they didn't want to even they didn't. We Hagar came in they didn't want to even call the band van Halen. Right? They push them to change the name. Yeah. Again back to. Roommate Aaron His dad used to say that he used to call it van. Hagar. Yeah. He refused acknowledged like Van Halen I imagine, and then again, and we get Van Hager. In. Oh. You ate one too has some very listenable songs but nothing that's really too crazy fifty, one, fifty by the way. To number one on the billboard chart, that's one Gotcha Oh, you eight once was popular had some really cool songs including finish what you started on there and black and blue a couple of a couple of big hits on there and did it well forum? Yeah. About this time was when substance abuse hit hit Eddie Eddie was having a hard time with with booze with co with all the stuff that was going on because they were partying He was he was a man at this point you just slow down and older anybody can only take so much of this. in the entire music. The heavy metal that they were in hard rock the totally shifted yet. They come off to her from this and you're going into ninety and you've got the the grunge stuff that we've talked about like the music shifting. A lot of this stuff is starting to hit the radio play. PIXIES has really started to change things. college rock scene is what's really I guess won't come. Rem is suddenly not a cone beam there. Who Read Out Chili Peppers have got big Al Yeah Yeah. Who Skar do was this just like? Out of nowhere and suddenly these guys are spawning people like the Seattle Scene Right soundgarden and Pearl Jam and Nirvana who are the three the triumphant. Get to this late, the period between eight, one two and their next album, which was still a massive hit form massive which. By the way, that's a for unlawful carnal knowledge for unlawful carnal knowledge that is an acronym for fuck for education. Fast enough or home. The whole thing was that if he were caught doing that sort of thing, they would put that on. Or or if you were in the stocks backend. Days or something they put that on. That's not really the word that how the F. Word came about folks but it's interesting that album had a song called pancake which Eddie in his. Weird equipment thing he played out with the Real. Thing their. Feedback from the. had a song called right here right now, which was huge. Huge defining and we were talking about that was in the Pepsi Commercial? Crystal Pepsi. For unlawful carnal knowledge was their first Grammy Winner Front. That's right. That's right. They follow that up with a live album right here right now, and at that point things went way bad Sammy Hagar. Is. Out. He's gone in the This be time for you to bring in the title the podcast because that's what happened. That's when that was said was that this time period, right? Yeah. These two albums. Yeah. But that's that's exactly right a and what what's crazy about this whole thing is how rough these van Halen brothers are on everybody else. They are hard to deal with. sounds an especially when when the substance abuse stuff was really starting to kick in Not just the smoking, not just drinking but the hardcore.

"Physicians I'm going to wash dishes. You can happy analyst. I didn't mean her up to you but oh Listen I mean the progression of Eddie Van Halen started on piano It got to guitar. He started putting things together Eddie van Halen was the owner of three US patents by. died. For different innovations that he made using guitar, we talked about frightened Franken strat a few minutes ago. Yes. if you don't know what the Frankenstein Guitarist you. Buy This listening you've seen the videos in it's the red guitar with like the White Label. Across it and I think started as as yellow and white with black on it ended up somehow with read, right? Right? Yeah and and that literally he put that together like it was a neck from this and had these pickups the maple neck ash body he tore out there were three holes for pickups. He tour one of them out and left us the the springs inside of it. Right? It looks like it looks like a piece of junk and by the way that is that's in the Smithsonian. And Franken Strat. Originally, his original settling on Franken Strat, it's a it's a, it's a fender stratocaster with something else both on. He's got different pieces on there. He had a wasn't a quarter at the very top that was ruled through a okay. I'm talking about a coin that had had drilled through he his pick guard, which is that piece of plastic underneath that keeps the body from getting scratched up from your pick. Right? He had carve that out of some piece of plastic maybe it was a record or something I don't even would he got it from, but it was just this this. Piece Shit Guitar where he took like a nineteen, fifty, eight Bar Or is it truly was the trimmer? He had the Tremolo? Yeah and so he he takes that off some other guitar Aegis puts all the stuff together and he creates this instrument, all of his own, and that's what he he played some. You can play different things early on with that was kind of that's the thing he's famous for that. He played the most. Tweaked his AMC tweaked everything Beg Atari was going to say is was innocent and at are very, very good. Natural Science Museum over in Fort Worth a few years two years they had a guitar exhibit there which I went. In it was really cool in that is in there they were traveling around with all salt. Lake Jimmy page out of Qatar in their Jimi Hendrix added Qatar all these different guitars right and that's in there. That's like the big thing in the middle would like the light shining on it and it's an ugly sound a little bit. It's well. They're making reproductions of it to be very close to a you my brand new version of this thing. Yeah, and the. Twenty thousand dollars is what you pay for A. Pay He didn't pay for it, but he still I think he pay probably. Fifteen sixteen sixty eight hundred bucks and I think at one point and they're they're probably being made a different I don't know specifics of the making but I do know that they went through the roof. The Day event held. On October seventh now, they're way more expensive. So at. Eddie's proficiency on Guitar. It's more than just a piano player that was watching his brother become a phenomenal drummer. And trying to keep shelter. It's different than that. Because what he was doing was he was doing. A, he didn't create this style. But that sound that you hear from Van Halen what he's doing if you think about someone who's playing a guitar their left hand assuming it's a right handed guitar player their left hand has turned upside down on the FRIT board. That's where you press the strings The right hand is is strumming back and forth what Eddie was doing is he took his right hand input right next to his left hand and he was tapping on the street that's called tapping yeah, and so that style the. So. He didn't. He didn't invent that he didn't the guy from Genesis Steve a record. Even before that I. Think they didn't do it a lot like he definitely took that and ran with it. Yeah. It just in. So he was playing guitar like he would play a piano and so he was proficient on piano as a classically trained pianist but he was playing guitar like that right and thing piano is you my mom's a pianist and my aunt and I took The analysis I was kid my mom used to say if you could play piano, you can play anything because you've got all ten fingers are doing something right? The traditional guitar player like if you're just strumming stuff, your right hand isn't doing anything more the whole pick for most rock players, right? Yeah. You're classical or some full Michael you're playing with your fingers, but you're destroying something whereas. He strummed a lot don't get me wrong and he could play super fast into everything that tapping thing with both fingers when that's that's a very complex thing that it's crazy. So especially for him to make that such a big part of his. Repertoire, right. Right. Right in. So he was doing a lot of Pentatonic. Scales as so he he was actually early Van Halen's lots of Blues Driven of seventy. Bruce. Blue stuff a lot of cover stuff where they would take a song like dancing in the streets or what was that done on the US? The kinks kinks really got really got me. Yeah. That was the second or third track on on their very first eruption leads into that. Yeah. Yeah, and so He not only was he tapping on so he's using both hands on the Fret Board. He was also leaving his finger on that and running it back down the street so it would go. In this new sound that guitar had never made before everybody in hard rock has done the like the pick dive stuff and that's where like you take your pick that you're playing with your right hand just running down the strings and make something. And For some reason, his sound different and I finally saw some guy talk about this and it's like. I never thought of this obviously nowhere near Eddie van Halen's caliber guitar-playing. But this guy pointed out that when he would do that the pressure, he would bring the pressure up and so he was actually like. Impacting the strings differently in different than cigarettes chaining in tone. That's mastery. That's matter. Mastery of your instrument. You know what you're doing yeah. At that point you you figured the whole thing it everything to to a scientific granular level, and once again that he was doing it with a smile on his face. Yeah. Yeah before MC Hammer was doing his like hammer dance back and forth Eddie. Van. Halen was dancing all over the stage in these big giant pants like doing high kicks and splits and smiling and mugging like Oh can you believe this is happening you know that have a thing while Alex's back there destroying the drums an God damn it. I know every time we do this podcast this comes up in some fashion or another, and it makes me feel like the fucking oldest man in the world, but I'm going to say it. There were kids that listen to Eddie van Halen that picked up a guitar in just wanted to play guitar. Now they use auto tune in drum machines and shit right I mean like this was like literally organic these are in a room just make music managers bang and shit out and yeah they were saying about chicks parties and whatever. But like just just the the woods shedding time to like sit alone your room until you mastered how to do this kind of stuff continue to make that your craft as opposed to plug into a computer and just pressing a button it just. It astounds me think that Van Halen like this rock band was so popular was covered up MTV nothing against the Geyser on MTV now but this is. something. A lot of a lot of guests them actually There's the lack of talent and hard work versus show much natural talent and show much hard work such a and I know that makes me seem like the old man screaming at the sky but it.

"Go to retail pro demo dot com Eddie van Halen died on October six, twenty twenty at the age of sixty five without being hyperbolic and with full sincerity I can say that this is one of the greatest music losses that has ever happened in my entire life. And I say that with the full acknowledgement that Elvis died just seven months after I was born. Yes Eddie Van Halen dying is on the same level as Elvis Presley dying. Born in Amsterdam and raised in Pasadena, outside of Los, Angeles Eddie and his brother Alex were the heart and soul of rate of music that dominated the world for over a decade, and they will continue to inspire musicians as long as the Qatar is played at infinitum. Eddie's virtuosic playing style, his complete command and control of his instrument in his till death. Do US part dedication to perfecting his skills and ability on a guitar put him into the stratosphere of greatest of all time lists in the history of music. Not, just greatest guitar players of all time I mean greatest musicians of all time. Bach. Mozart. Beethoven. Chopin. Tchaikovsky. Verdi. Wagner. Van Halen. Again I'm not exaggerating or being hyperbolic. This is a momentous loss for the entire world.

Was the last minute musical guest that they got for the show. The original guest musical guest for SNL last night was supposed to be Morgan Wall in the country star. He tested positive for nobody. Actually, you know what he did not test positive for covert 19. But he had posted videos of himself. At parties kissing strangers, not social distancing. Prior to his the rehearsals for SNL, and the show made the decision to cancel him because he had put himself in so many Unsafe situations so they needed to find a new guest. Morgan Wallen admitted that he'd made a foolish mistake. That he put he put himself in that jeopardy and apologized. But they needed to find another musical guest, and I don't think they could have found a better one for last night, Jack White. Formerly of White Stripes, who Ah performed last night. But while he while he was performing, he was playing a guitar that was made for him specifically designed by Eddie Van Halen. And Eddie. This was his quote, and he was very kind to me and saw to it that this guitar was made for me to my specs. And he said, thanks, Eddie for the guitar rest in peace. Adding, I won't even insult the man's talents by trying to play one of his songs. But he did acknowledge Eddie Van Halen on DH, thanked him and played I didn't know that Jack White was as screaming a guitar player as he wass. I, You know, I've known him only from white stripes. Hey, was fine was perfectly, you know, good, exceptionally good.

"eddie van halen" Discussed on The JV Sports Show

"Good morning. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the JV Sports show here on a Saturday morning Vince delisio hear. My partner James movie is a little delayed in coming in. He may not be joining us this morning. However, you've got me for the full hour and we've got a lot of a lot of interesting things coming up some guests. And as you heard at the intro, there's a little tribute to the late great Eddie Van Halen and I can't speak enough about the influence of of any the band Van Halen lead singers David Lee Roth Sammy Hagar Gary cherone for a brief time in the late nineties, and it just they transcended so many so many different genres, you know, they they were obviously a rock and roll band first, but really good balladeers and and wrote a lot of good music and touched a lot of people And and you know me included and and losing any this week was was really really wrenching in talking to people around the community both young and old you know last night I call games Campo Verde High School I do their pa and and one of the kids one of the students said, he's the goat, you know greatest of all time. And and so, you know what it hits home and and you know, and it's, you know, we we weren't friends, you know, but I felt like I knew a name and when you you know develop an interest in music from a young age no matter what the music is, you you feel a connection with the band and because it touches you in a certain way and and you know about inspire you it can lift you up when when times are tough and and and the music of Van Halen is no different. So anyway, we lost any of age. If I've had been battling cancer there had been rumors that that it was more serious than it truly was and and you know and and but many of us were still holding out hope that there would be another reunion took their tour another gig but unfortunately that all ended this week was interesting this week, you know, Sammy Hagar and and Eddie Van Halen had a a little bit of a feud since the last time they tried to go out or in the early 2000s and Sammy this week sent a note to Howard Stern that Howard read on air that Sammy had actually made peace that they made peace, but they didn't want to tell anybody they made peace earlier this year. They didn't want to share it with anybody for fear that the rumor mill would start that hey we're going back on tour where we you know reuniting and and it wasn't about that but she communicated and Sammy had last heard from Eddie about a month ago and and he had reached out Sammy and reached out didn't hear back and then about two years. After that and reached out again and didn't get a response. And so then Sammy realized that situation was probably pretty grave. So anyway, Eddie Van Halen and the home key of the group Van Halen passes away at the age of 65 and his music lives on eighty million albums sold worldwide so long tough one tough one. Anyway, let's let's move along and let's talk a little bit about what's going on. So Last night we had we had a game out at Campo Verde High School were going to talk a lot of high school football today a lot of good things going on out there the world goes on and and and and we obviously continue on so great High School football game last night out at Campo Verde. It was their home opener. They broke out the black Unis last night and and also unveiled the finalists Banner on the Press Box and so it's beautiful big banner V A State fan finalists 2019 home and what are the team do they came out and they routed and it was a new head coach Ryan Freeman had been on staff for a number of years and they routed Raymond Kellis the Cougars off by final score of 56 to 7. And so what that meant is I got to get home a little bit early last night because as you know, you know when you score more than 42.42 or more in a game you suck. If you get a running clock, so anyway, it was a great game. Congratulations Ryan Freeman congratulations to the families to the kids to the Campo crazies in the students was a lot of fun calling that game and and everybody practicing proper social distancing guidelines. It was a still a good turnout last night at the game. So a lot of fun good stuff want to run through a couple of other scores for you this morning as well talk a little bit of high school football. We've got some folks that will be calling in with this. Also talking a little bit about the show today during our JV High School Spotlight segment. We will feature Casa Grande as you know, Thursday night. We did a game out of Casa Grande High School. It was Casa Grande hosting the nights out of Lake Havasu and let's go real quick. I'd like to bring on Coach Freeman who's just calling in right now and and Coach Ryan Freeman Campo Verde High School. Congratulations coach. Thank you, sir. How are you doing this morning, man? You sound like you lost your voice a little bit do a little bit of yelling last night. Huh? Not too bad. Not too bad. I just have one of those AM radio voices, I guess. All right. So talk to us a little bit about the game. Now. It's a heck of a game congrats 56-7, you know, obviously we you know, we talked a little bit after the game last night and and I think you know, it was just a it was it was an outpouring of support from the community and and that you take over this program and did some great things. Tell us a little bit about it. Yeah. It was it was definitely a fun experience class. Got a lot of lot of young guys, but we definitely grew up from game on the game to be cleared up a lot of small mistakes or penalties. I would argue that much better focus this week. We spent to the better results. Now the new quarterback, you know, it was funny. I talked to him and generally when you have a quarterback that starting for a big school in a big game know this is a kid that I mean, he's been playing varsity for a couple of years. He's got some snaps under his belt and I'm talking to Riley Garcia your quarterback last night and I was asking him about you know, tell us about some of your other opponents, you know a song that you played last year that you've got now, you know coming up this season and he said well, I don't know I wouldn't really be able to say I was playing JV last year. I mean this can't be really, you know did some great things in the offseason us about him. Yeah. I mean Riley has grown about three inches since last year and he's put on the about thirty pounds and he stood on Thirty pounds of really good with the kids has worked hard. He spent a lot of time in the offseason eating right training hard. He's really bought into different schools that we have in the program. And and the lifting aspect of it, you know, he he has changed his diet because he's trying to make himself into a big-time quarterback.

Yeah, it's not that that was that was literally that was the album that that broke him to the masses. Then Nineteen Eighty-Four which wage, you know, they they understood MTV. I think they were one of the first bands that really understood the you know, how this medium works and you know, a lot of it was David Lee Roth, but it was it was the music as well. Even they like like jump. It's just a pop song. We're going to create this pop-song. We're going to do this video. We're all having a great time. This is kind of what a Van Halen song. Sort of like Come Aboard, you know, come join us. Come join the Van Halen train and you know have a good time. That's that's exactly what you know, they reflected that they did great covers. I mean Pretty Woman wage ever. Oh, yeah. You should look up see the video the full version of Pretty Woman, you know with with the with the Eddie Van Halen instrumental leading into pretty woman.

You said he he said are you reading this page invited Thomas Dolby up to his home recording studio to squeeze in a couple of days of work, right? He says they'll be says he soon realized though that every our Van Halen's day was like a scene from Spinal Tap House. That is funny. But kind of makes you wonder what it is day-to-day life was actually like but I'm also reminded of the recording for beat it he was about to put down the the song record the song and then I had to leave he said he was like he had to do some ET recording or something but he left the studio and Eddie suggested. Can we move things around a little and I think he moved like the middle 8th or wage moved the song around and changed the the solo and just the the the the arrangement of the song and when Michael came back, you know, he wasn't sure it's like well, you know when you deal with artists your name If they're going to hate it or love it and Michael is very appreciative of a like you've I'm so happy you've made this a better song now. I don't think he got I don't think any got paid for that performance. Yeah. I don't know. I think he did. I think he did as a favorite. I saw something last night was working that Pete Townsend said that he was the he was originally going to do it and could not do it and he suggested that Eddie which I didn't know. Wow good suggestion. But yeah, so that would make a difference. Yeah. I think that's in I think that's might be off on Rolling Stone by P on Rolling Stone. I mean, it's weird. It's just like it's so awful. I mean I posted on Facebook yesterday. It's just so awful that you know in the last five years or so long lost so many great musicians, you know, and just when you think about it, you know Prince Tom Petty Bowie Leonard Cohen, you know, it's just know Eddie Van Halen, you know off John Prine, you know cuz you know the list goes on and on, you know. Yeah to that point though about the tributes online for people who know who who are close to the family. I had mixed feelings about that. But a lot of these people are probably.

"Said that about the likes of black Sabbath sabotage or even never say die but I love this idea of things the WHO did you know Pete Townsend such a creative Guy Will Eddie van Halen is a CR-. You're a greatly intensely creative guy and you know we're weird songs like loss of control or even fools or even everybody wants somehow deconstructed that is and and those great sounds on end. The cradle will rock You know one foot out the door. Romeo. Delight What else? You know. I they started out as a little safer of a ban, but we've talked about nineteen eighty-four. How keyboards is you know a fearlessly creative thing to do but I wanted to pick a song were you go like these guys are nuts like what are these guys up to and that's what people loved about Van Halen as well. it wasn't it was you know rarely. Really safe and and as time went on, they did other not safe things like not making a lot of records, right and and the sounds and and moving into that more melodic zone with Sammy Hager I mean I mean even that leap of faith they're into Sammy Hager. Well, I guess he's not the craziest choice in the world but remember that one time I mean they were they were talking about having a female lead singer at one point wasn't Sass Jordan possibly up for the job at one point But and then finally when they made their last record, they also did another really unsafe thing and they went back and mind their their their earliest material and out of all the bands I can think of this is actually a really cool point of a van Halen and creativity Out of all the bands that that you know maybe maybe you didn't even expect them to make a comeback album that actually turned out to be one of the heaviest albums of their career. That's what a different kind of truth is like talk about pleasing the metal heads I mean the metal heads were ecstatic when that record came out because it was so fiery and Guitar Ian Non Keyboard I think famously, it may not have any keyboards. On it I can't quite remember the story that you learn these things in you forget them right but certainly, I can't even think of any keyboards on it and it's just like guitar pyrotechnics fast songs heavy songs start to finish and almost everything on that was based on a you know super early, super early things they did. That's the other thing about van Halen being creative. They always had tons and tons of stuff in the vaults and. Imagine all this time Eddie's been spending you know basically working in fifty, one, fifty s home studio. I mean people have told me like there's thousands and thousands and thousands of hours of great guitar that Eddie recorded the that we've never heard yet. Right. But just and you know in terms of the great songs you know we we see an example of this coming up with this different kind of truth albums. So so this great you. Know basically saying I'M NOT GONNA make a super commercial album. I'M GONNA make an album for those original fans were with me from the beginning the metal heads and that's what you got with that great album You know people were stunned when they heard that wasn't a huge success and and you know what does Eddie Care? He's he's an artist he's creative. He doesn't. He doesn't care if it's great success you know and the and the other thing. Along those lines look at the three album, he made with Gary Sharon. Now, you know most people myself included don't call it a great album but talk about a constructive deconstructed creatively brave album. It's an album that famously and notoriously you know all of us complain that it doesn't really have that many songs on it. It's it's very strange. Eddie even does a lead vocal on it, and by the way what a great singer Eddie is I mean he? Does a great job of that. He's got a great voice and he can sing and yet he never gave us a lot of that over the years right. But that album that album is creatively really brave and weird It's got a lot of instrumental stuff on and I know we've all complained about that and Sammy's even complained himself about how on the balance album there was too much dicken around you know too many little weird instrumental passages but. There again, is van Halen being creatively brave they're gonNA, give you what they're inspired to give you. The album's may not even be that long and and eventually like I'm saying, they were actually spread out a lot through time and we didn't get a lot of them but what a creative banned in so many ways. So that's why I wanted to pick this loopy strange song that I remember hearing the very first time I heard I went. What are these guys up to? This is nuts right. So it's kind of like speed metal, Thrash Metal Country Country Rock in terms of a melody on this song it's a little bit like like southern rock metal and and yeah, the whole record was was you know there was a lot of strange creative stuff on it. So yeah, they they gave you all sorts of strange things along the way. So yeah to recap that was our last track. We had attract that represented Eddie. As a guitar hero we had attract that represented Eddie. Being. The Greatest Ambassador for California that probably rock ever had because he basically shifted this massive massive industry back to California for a Lotta years through just being great and just being van Halen and and just the Grand Nessin greatness of this band this led Zeppelin esque band this who asked the band we had a track that represented Eddie the. gearhead. The brown sound thing that's why I played up for breakfast we had a track that represented Eddie the keyboard, and we had a track that represented the most important thing for all artists, creativity and so eddie was just a a creative genius and a fearless creative guy. He didn't mind making mistakes giving us his mistakes if he believed in them. And and said, Hey, take a listen to this So yeah, we got this great amazing catalog gone too soon Eddie Van halen sixty, five years old on this day. October sixth twenty, twenty. There you go.

"Now the reason I picked this odd track. It's a later period track a Sammy Hager track. It's not even on any any of the official full length studio albums. because. What we're doing with this episode is celebrating how Eddie inspired the rock and roll world inspired people to make better art. Through his own artistry, five different ways, I picked this as a great illustration of the Brown sound and Eddie as a gear head Production values. I love this up for breakfast track. A lot of people don't think it's that great attract. You know it's typical tossed off Sammy Hager Lyric but I often I often argued that the van Halen Brown sound this thing that the the created Eddie with guitar tone. But I also always include Alex in that with his drum sound and what Ted temperament was for the band always argued that it doesn't exist on the first album and it comes to the fore on the second album van. Halen to and then they really really get inside. The guts and the and the machine of this brown sound album on women and children I and fair warning. But up into the Sammy Hager years you know on fifty, one, Fifty and Oh, you eight, one, two in these later tracks I thought they really took this production thing to the extreme. So this is this is a great thing we have to celebrate four Eddie was so important to those guitar magazines because he such a gearhead, he loved gear to the detriment of putting out enough records that you know to to fulfill all of our our loving Fan's. Thirst for Van Halen albums we didn't get that many because any is is he's a mad genius. He was a tinker he loved gear he loved production he loved pedals and and taken apart guitars and put them back together. So he had all these sponsorships and all these sponsored guitars and and And so this is another. This is another thing that we need to celebrate. He's a bit like a Ronnie Montrose in that respect right So so essentially, track three celebrates the brown sound this this great distinct production tone this child raucous thing that we got out of the combination of between Eddie and his brother Alex and working with temple men but also just you know this So it's guitar tone it's it's extreme production and you hear that on this this crushing crushing very clear but still booming a sound that they get on this this great up for breakfast track. All right. Moving on our fourth track here on history and five songs with Martin popoff celebrating the life of Eddie Van Halen. This is another way that he inspired take a listen to this..

"Now I picked this song to illustrate a point about van Halen. It's a little more of an abstract point but I picked this because it's often cited as the greatest van Halen Song of all time you know a lot of people do these polls people love this song they love means. Street What else is up there cradle will rock is usually up there pretty high ain't talking about love but basically the point I want I want to make with my second pick is van Halen through being so great and making so many great albums so fast and In in a in a kind of a void where there isn't a of rock coming out of a out of California California's Kinda dead for rock. I. Mean. The last big movement that came out of California was the avocado. Mafia. With the whole you know singer songwriting thing in the troubadour and the Eagles and country rock and folk rock and all that. But then Halen brought with a bang excellent excellent hard rock back to California by being in La banned by making record and seventy eight in a record, seventy, nine, eighty, and eighty, one and eighty, eighty, eighty one. Eighty two something like any yeah, eighty two that's right. So sober like five records before hair metal even started. So I I want to give Eddie van Halen and the band the credit with the second track of basically shifting the Fulcrum in the end. The attention back to California and California is now going to have a massive heyday with the whole hair metal scene, which is GonNa last all through the eighties all the way. Up until nineteen, ninety-one like California is the focus the nexus again of Iraq or all rock in general I mean London always has its time but you know England basically you know at least in our our small orbit and probably a number of orbits But definitely this one, there was the new wave of British heavy metal and soon as that door shut around nineteen eighty three on that the the the focus shifted back to. California bands would move to California all from all over America to try to make it, and this is van Halen van. halen is really You know they're the major inspiration for the entire California hard rock hair metal scene that that that kicked off basically in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, three with the likes of docking in rat and quiet riot. It's all van Halen's fault and and to their credit I, mean as. A Bridge Bend in there, you also have motley crue as well but but but certainly, you know out of nowhere comes this great band and they're just doing you know doing lots of records and what when there's no one else around. There's maybe Sammy Hager somewhat around there's Ronnie Montrose and gamma not a lot of hard rock that is that you know people that are making records of this stuff and so so credit van Halen. For essentially you know making California, the center of the music industry again for a a solid gold and platinum ten years. Alright with that. Let's take a little break and we'll be right back. Hurry here. We are back again on kind of sad episode of history and five songs with Martin Popoff. We are celebrating the life of Eddie van, Halen who died today as we speak.

"Always pleasure to talk to you. So what? We talked about this yesterday really quick. When I was coming home in the training you you message me and said that Eddie Van Halen and died. So I knew that obviously, that Eddie Van Halen is kind of he was a living legend. But how For musicians, especially guitarist produced musicians in general. What? How did they look at him? Was he really considered an icon? He reinvented. Ah rock and roll guitar. He just took it to the will Never be another one like him. What do you mean? He reinvented rock'n'roll guitar He reinvented like, Yeah, Jimi Hendrix, And then he kind of just took that to the next level. And you know they haven't been really Active in the last few years, But you know, they peaked in like the eighties, maybe early nineties. But since then, that guy no one has touched him yet And no one will. I don't think anyone ever will. He I heard that he never had formal training. Is that right? He actually started as a drummer. And Alex. Apparently, I think started as a guitar player, and they just switched and then he just kind of Oh, my God threw the book away and just kind of taught himself from what I understand from what I remember reading and I've learned more about this guy in the last 24 hours. Little bit that I never knew or videos. I've never I just watched one of him jamming with the SNL band who are accomplished like Yeah, and she just kind of Took what they do and did his spin on it. And I was like, Oh, my God, I'm like, how do you do this? So it's kind of crazy because he wasn't classically trained. You know, like you got friends, your friend Jack Gibson from the metal band of Thrash Band Exodus is classically trained. I mean, like, went Teo, you know, not Juilliard, but I mean one of these really, really great music schools. But he but people still call Eddie Van Halen, the Mozart of guitar, even though he wasn't classically trained, which is kind of crazy. Well, a lot of guys when you I know a lot of guys that'll be what you playing it like this. I don't know. It sounds good, and I don't know what I'm playing. It just sounds good to me and like cellular. Theoretically, that's not correct. I'm like, Well, that's why I mean maybe a little lazy, you know, wanted to get to the next level on my own, and I threw them through the lessons out the oranges, put on my favorite bands and tried to learn what they were doing. Develop my own thing, And you know how 47 years old? I'll never come close to what? That guy not even close and I was willing by nine hard Van Halen fan growing up, but I heard Panama and I was like, Oh, my God. And now, Johnny Boy, Johnny Boy when you were young, Footloose and fancy, free and Valley stream sowing your oats in the rock world Were you guilty, like so many white boys playing air guitar and playing Hacky sack and imitating Eddie Van Halen. No Hacky sack air guitar to share everybody. How good will you because they have air guitar contest in which they did First prizes and Eddie Van Halen Trophy.

"C Where there is no mistaking that guitar. Eddie Van Halen Way. Continue to remember any of the guys this morning with any passing away yesterday. 65 After battle with cancer. Michael Bauer joins us now our correspondent following what is going to be changing and different for tonight's debate, and also how the president's doing in his battle with Corona virus. A boy some sad news yesterday, Michael Yeah, I also this I feel like I did my job as a father as both My 13 year old daughter and six year old daughter can name that to the opening notes Freddy, where Eddie Van Halen eruption and Ah, and they are big fans and then are sad to see what happened to Eddie Van Halen as well. Heather. There's no no mistaking that rift right there that you just heard and all of his guitar playing so unique in immediately when you hear it. It's like, Oh, yeah, that's Eddie Van Halen for sure. Well tonight it's going to be a little different. Let's talk about some of those changes were besides the plexiglass that's going between them. What else can we expect? Plexiglass cages who foresaw the coming up for a vice presidential debate? It does sound like a W W E event unless Like a vice presidential debate, but that's that's how this is going to go. We know that vice president Pence yesterday had some discussions with the group was responsible for this. The commission on presidential debates who say that they were conversing with the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio and other medical facilities to come up with plexiglass to be used as a part of the overall approach to health and safety in the vice presidential debates. Vice president. Pence didn't want to be surrounded by plexiglass, and it looked like there were negotiations in play that he'd be able to participate without a barrier around him. However, what we're seeing is that as of last night, The New York Times reporting that Pence head back down, will accept the barriers that have already been installed. So they've already been put in place. It would take more work for them to take it all down on some level, So maybe that was a part of the reason why he said. No, no, no, Let's just go with it. It'll be fine. We'll see how it goes from there. But you are looking at what At least a this point in time, The Brookings Institute calls the most important vice presidential debate in history, not just on the heels of the debacle. That was the debate last week. But more importantly, the fact that when you're looking at the two oldest presidential candidates in the history of this country who have questionable health issues, Joe Biden about to turn 78 years old with a lot of questions about his health president Trump going through the early stages of his Corona virus infection, just having turned 74 years old. I know that most of us to think about having a conversation about the newly elected president in an incapacitation level or worse Yet death level is completely macabre, and I get that, but at the same time when you're looking at their age, and you're looking at their health records that discussion has to be had and that's part of what's going to happen here tonight. Who would be stepping? It will be vice president Pence or Senator Kamala Harris..

Pop Music's Past Is Crowding Out Its Present

"Will host Nate Wilcox and today we're joined by Simon Reynolds the author Retro Mania Pop Culture's addiction to its own past ask Simon Welcome. Thanks for having me on your podcast. It's a pleasure. This book made a big impression on me when it first came out and I'm looking forward to discussing it with you a decade after its publication or not quite a decade. I guess but Close now I can look back at the teens as well as the knots. But the fundamental argument every book which definitely jibed with. What I was feeling intuitively? was that in the beginning direction. You say I'm I'm what am imagining isn't a cataclysm. So much as a gradual wind down this is the white pop ends not with a bang but with a box set whose fourth disc never get around to plane and overprice a price ticket to the track by track. Re staging of the pixies pavement album. You play to death your first year at university if the pulse of now felt weaker with each passing year. That's because in the two thousands. The POP president became evermore crowded out by the past whether in the form of archive memories of yesteryear or retro. Rock leaching off ancient styles. So that's Kinda the thing we wanted to discuss is do you think that's still true I think everything that I write about in Richmond is still still going on Still a lot of reissuing as the festival lineups Overcrowded with people called legacy acts Either accident never a very old. Never stop playing Obama that re reunited because there is this sort of lucrative circuit now for reunion is There's a lot of younger bands who music is a kind of pastiche. Oh pick a mix of things will be all sides and beyond music as you know. TV reboot send and film franchise is based on you know quite old comic books. All beloved films from the seventies you know just endlessly get get anew the Prequel Aura. post-coup added to it So everytime I write about in the book is still going. It doesn't feel as oppressive to me. It feels like this quite a lot. More really contemporary sounding music and very digital sounding music. That feels two thousand and ten minutes. It's five so I wouldn't say I'm quite as gloomy as I was when I wrote the book but at the time writing the bogey felt we were inundated not by the past and it was this sense of. Yeah as I put it in the intro of being over the present been crowded out there. Were all these things competing for your attention and And a lot of emphasis sort of you know people dealing with these new online Al-Qods essentially repub kind of amateur amateur archives. Youtube is kind of amateur. Archive has very current. This minute kind of things in it as well but a lot of youtube content and was especially seemed to be the case in the early days of Youtube was old crap. You know that someone you know someone did a comp- you know someone's GonNa Compilation of beloved TV commercials from Nineteen Seventies UK. Kept some old pop shows as you know. Strange documentaries will never been shown since they were first ad in the in the seventies or eighties. So there it was always rich Israeli which is kind of rich as you could get lost in and That that's still going on but I feel I feel a bit more. I'm excited about music. At least I feel. There is me the fields current united feels like very now and this'll be a little bit past a ton this show airs but just yesterday. We had a controversy on twitter. Billy Irish Pretty young pop. Upswing are not knowing who van Halen was and boomer and Gen Xer van Halen fans just being a gas What did you make that you follow it out? Little Kerfluffle at all is funny on might sort of twitter feed and facebook. Everyone's like I haven't seen anyone like making fun of weather will like. Why should she know who are some of them are like old new wave? Like van Halen was shit anyway so I haven't seen anyone you know maybe moving different circles. I'm I was. I was surprised she had never heard jump. You know because that's on the radio still and it's like an old time American classic classic but Yeah why would she know. Who'd been having? I mean she probably heard and let me read the you know. The name has not stock forever reason. Yeah she's a completely different different generation. I think we probably will see tweet with someone. Says it's like someone in Van. HALEN's Day you know not knowing who Luke Benny Goodman or some sort of swing. Jazz was excise the time difference. You know that seems pretty on the money. Why would a seventeen year old when eighteen year old? Whatever she is now be aware of Finland Particularly didn't it didn't seem like You Know I. I haven't seen mcclay but I got the impression that she was kind of saying. That kind of amused self deprecating way. It wasn't like some got shallow. Shell like where you know So in quarter hour you know you say you're a musician get you've never heard of Eddie. Van Halen's legendary tap fret tapping pinged guitar technique. You know. She says she's the modern Vanhanen but she's from La I live in south South Pasadena and I think Bannon came from Pasadena. She sort of in the you know she's a modern. La Music making making music actually defunding with her brother. The van Halen had two brothers into nine and so she doing interesting new things that are very involved in the now. You know they they that success is is Is using the latest online media through a tick. Talking Elise ways kids find out things. My youngest kid is crazy into the EILLY. So you know it's it's a bright new tomorrow where Van Halen are a little footnote and wash you know. Why should they care? Yeah Yeah I took it as a good sign That your arguments not not that. I'm against your arguments with just that you worrying about in the book that the pass was right now the future and it seems like this current generation of kids who as a parent. It's it's interesting. They have such a different relationship with popular culture than we had as Gen xers a you are in Britain. I was in the states growing up but you know we were soaking and decades of reruns and old movies that were on. TV that we might have anywhere from three three to fifty channels. But still you're flipping through and you're going to see Humphrey Barton and you're gonNA see Benny Goodman. And you're going to see Frank Sinatra and kids today everything they Z.. Is Pretty much selected. And so I'm actually sort of worrying that the musical history is being lost for the new generation. But let's let's stick to the a book though and and how much different stories like for instance a often anecdotally through friends and seeing what their kids into you view is always about how a particular kid eleven ever is just crazy about the Beatles unknown and just just listen to the Beatles so I think it's all for them to discover I. I suspect what it is. Is this thing I write about in the book. kool-aid temporary where the chronology music is. All jumbled up and and on things that are very old that might pop into their world through whatever means sort of things that I'd presence and they don't necessarily have a sense of the chronology Iraq history when I was getting into music. It was a fairly simple chronology rock and roll the Beatles and the stones You Know Glam Rock Bowie Psychedelia before that and then punk and you could sort of understand is only three stages of history that you can get basic you know you can understand the paragraph Really and a few song examples but now the music history so sprawling and Dan things that have been left out of history of been readmitted you know like disco is very celebrated. Now is as an important era music and prog. Ross has been rehabilitated. Is No longer this thing that you know Pumpkin. You I've said was a complete waste land. I grew up with that idea. That was completely. You should go there. I think it's a much more complicated very sincere music history that you had to do a little bit of work if you won't understand it but people pick up on bits of music. Prep some fans will will She listened to Van Halen because of his whole this whole silly cophil full about

"eddie van halen" Discussed on Chris and Rick Talk Guitars

"And that kind of influence my whole my whole area where I focused on when I used to fantasize about guitars. I was still. At that point, very classic guitar oriented, you know, I love the classics. And so we had that that wave, and I don't know what it kicked off. Then he started getting bands. Like, quiet riot. This is the second wave rat. Yep. What other than here metal? And that's pretty much where I started noticing the pointy heads. Those dudes have the super strat point had stocks. And it was impossible your soul. It was like you centerpiece of every song. You know? Here's my soul. I gotta work. My so on it's got to be faster and more tabby than anything else out there. So it was that whole race to sound exactly the same for for metal guitar players for a while. And that is when I think when I think of the pointy had stock, that's the I think of and you mentioned bright colors, we both know who was responsible for that. That would be Steve Vai created that always itemize. Yeah. Like came up with a bunch of ridiculously always. Forever. Stuck in the eighties color schemes and the innovation of putting handle up right on the guitar case. Really? How else are you going to carry? Right. So the monkey grip on I don't know if his first version was a seven string. But he definitely ignore. My gosh, she I don't know if he was Dc dude that did the seven string thing. I still don't understand my mind. But I think he was one of the first guys I need one more string. Tufnel ask this this. This has one more goes to eleven and there's one more string. Yes. So yeah. I it's a weird era for guitar. Yeah. Because like you say the guitar playing itself was all just copying essentially, Eddie van Halen and different. Not very not really different permutations of that. Like, you're saying just all kind of the same thing. It's like one guy sounding like the other guys on the other guys on doing the same things with these pointy colorful guitars. Yeah. And I luckily, I never really got sucked into that of wanting one of those guitars because I was always like you. I was like I'd rather have a les Paul or strat or one of those guitars. Not to say, I mean, hey, again, as we always like to say or disclaimer, if you if that's what spoke to you. And that's what you wanted. That's cool. But it's spoke to a lot of people's who kick myself for not buying the classic cars back then kit, and they were going for really reasonable prices because nobody wanted time. So do you know who it was that actually saved like, let's les Paul standard from you know, just being coming completely obscured or in that era. No, I wanna know though with slash in roses, his I mean, oh, we're very popular. They were stuck inside that whole icare metal thing. And they kind of poked out as like the new hope for the Aerosmith ask kind of styles. And he was like, you know, as we all know, an avid les Paul enthusiasts and thing that's great that back then in the eighties. When Abba tight for destruction was out. I really had no interest in that music. I was with it didn't pay any attention to it had this Ethel Merman style but much later I actually now a big fan of that record that record a lot. And what I what I like about that record is an interview with slash one time. I recall him saying all say ever wanted to do was make a record as good as Aerosmith's rocks. And I'm like, well, you know, what I think it did. I mean, I've kind of favor the Aerosmith, but it's it's a solid can record rock, and you know, song for song all the way across. So I think he did it so kudos to him for attempting that in creating that. I mean, I think that record is great not only for the music and the way captures hard rock in that kind of desolate hair metal era..
