So you kind of know about some Dutch stuff? Yeah. Strap in. Jonathan Colton is going to lead this game. In a game we called Holland Opus we have changed the lyrics to Van Halen songs to make them about famous things developed in or associated with the Netherlands. This makes no sense. Why did he do this? Because Alex Van Halen were born there. To earn the point, all you have to do is name the thing that I'm singing about or the Van Halen song that I'm parodying. Oh my God, I'm gonna be doing these Van Halen songs in the way they were intended on an acoustic guitar. Of course. If you don't know either of those things you can just explain to us the difference between Holland and the Netherlands. Okay. Okay, here we go. Oh, wow, it's hot. That's the problem with Van Halen. It's.

"Van. Halen that you. You know what. I'll tell you one of the things that used to frustrate the hell out of me about seeing van. Halen live always was frustrated by david. Lee roth i always wished that he would like really focus and concentrate on the lyrics instead of the dancing in pandering to the crowd and whatnot. You know so that used to they used to frustrate me and the reality of it is is as time went by in this probably because you know whiskey drinking smoking pot us in and really kind of screaming your young years as you get older. Your body can't handle that stuff. David lee roth lost his voice. Any never fucking got it back but one of the things that we haven't talked about. Have you ever listened to the van. Halen reunion album a different kind of truth. No this some good stuff on there. I'll probably never listened to it. Thank you thank you very much to say. What about the gary sharon years. Oh the year mismatch. And it's it's too bad. Gary talented guy. But the problem with that record was wasn't gary sharon's vocals or how we fit in the band or not. It was the songwriting worrying for japan. That was it. They never toured japan. no they they. They played the states but he wanted they. They never went to japan so he took them. They went to japan with him and unfortunately japan saw him. Which they probably didn't care is is that true. I can't believe that van halen never played japan from what i understand. That was the thing they had never gone to japan. They nine hundred. All the tour dates nope europe. And you see no way. I don't believe it. Well prove me wrong bringing. I'll bet i'll bet you seven dollars. Yeah yeah i'll say there was. Actually i pit you. Fifty one dollars and fifty cents. Fifty one fifty. Then there was. There was actually another lead singer. Who never really. They never did anything with them. 'cause he bailed he's No i'm not. I'm not doing this. Who is that. I forget his name wandered. Yeah the blonde do ya. Yeah i don't think he said no. They moved said it was very hard to work with. He he bowed out he was. He said he was kinda. He bowed out gracefully. Like i don't think he bowed out. I think that they abandoned him. I think they moved back to roth or they is. That is that what eddie said i. That's who they may have been. But by the way when david lee roth was either fired. Let go would've whichever you believe. One of the people that they actually considered to join. The band was patty smyth from scandal off. That would have been. I remember that. Patty smyth and valerie bertinelli were friends in patty smyth in the band scandal. Shooting at the heart of heartbreak bank reorient. Okay yeah you'll she could sing but total mismatch. Yeah a lot of other women could saying. Better brought pat bamut benetton. Now you're gonna bring in female singer that drawing female singer the the sad thing about van halen is that eddie is now gone and he may have blamed it on putting metal guitar picks in is in his mouth and being surrounded by electronics but the big smoking big reserves a giant smoker in a big drinker and whatnot and that stuff takes its toll unfortunately affected him in a bad way and we lost a genius and before he passed sammy hagar in him made amends and they would text each other. You know 'cause that he couldn't talk they would text each other back and forth and that's a good thing michael anthony on the other hand. I'm sure was hurt. But they did him bad. We can circle back to that. They did in bad. There was no reason for that. They bring in wolf e wolfgang van halen who his group. Mammoth just backed up guns and roses the other night. At the at the at fenway park. Is someone say. Have you ever listened to any of his stuff. No no not yet not yeah so not opposed to it that oppose talented kid. No question about an download. He unfortunately is going to be saddled with vanhanen's kid. You're trying to steal your father son thunder. You're at least kind of riding on his co. tails but he's did name mammoth he he he did you know. No no question about it. Video well john bonham sunday and his group barnum he he. He also played every instrument on the record and and there are some people out there that really you know like some of the stuff that he's done. I haven't listened to it that he was on the howard stern show and he played a couple of songs. And it's impressive. Yeah he He was sixteen when they took him on tour. Sure you're still in high school. Sure so he used. I guess eddie he said oh he had it the worst he would. He was two to three or four hours a day. Then he had to go practice for the gig and then do the show. Then get up for school the next day but think about that you sixteen years old. Okay you're in high school but you're in awe with van halen all it's father and your uncle and.

"Pops out. Yeah well it was successful it a lot of people today still don't buy into it a lotta purist. But i didn't at first but that's the beauty of music right so you go back in when when the hype dies down you give it a listen and you start to like like i was like i said i kinda quietly liked a couple of songs from eight one to you know what the videos were good. That's his is the thing for me. In and i do like some of the sami stuff. I do agree. Totally different banned. Totally different vibe. Totally different style. You know in sounded if you will and you gotta give sammy. as credit. he did not have to join van. Halen at a pretty successful solo career going on started on started off with montross back in the seventy s had a solo career going. And you know. I can't drive fifty five and whatnot certainly wasn't at the level of van halen but it was no bomb. Even you know for me. I think the transition went those early van. Halen albums were fucking great albatross. The van hagar years. They were great songs but not necessarily great albums from start to finish. In my opinion. I have no argument with you. I have no argument. With the i mean they. I've never honestly truth. Be told i've never listened to an entire album with sammy. Hagar the second one. Oh you eight one. Two i think is a great record from start to finish. But i think that's the only one you know the for the first one is some great cuts on it. There's some there's some clunkers in there or you. Eight one two is is great. Fifty one fifty was a good album. Fifty fifty one fifty was. There was some good stuff on there. I didn't love from start to finish. But it was still a roth guy in remember with remember. David lee roth space. First solo album in fifty fifty came out about the same time so there was a lot of comparisons. And i was a david lee rob guy. I thought that that band was tighter. I thought they were grittier. I thought the songwriting was a lot better. It's just my opinion. I thought they really gelled one. Two out for For lawful unlawful. Whatever it is was was pretty good you know and then balance. I thought it was a terrible record. I thought i think they fell off on that late. Just semi hagar actually wanted to name an album fuck just because that was when the censorship you know the tipper gore and that's just a fucking dumb idea it's just a dumb idea while he got it from he column carnal knowledge. I mean he got across. That was one of the things that drove me. Nuts about sammy hagar. Is that double entendre. Bullshit that he tried to do. It wasn't that clever. Did you write double. did you say double entendre. Yeah you like that. I don draymond genre. Tra don't fancy teaboy. He china trying to impress. You know what i love about. David lee roth when they asked him the way he says. Double entendre right. Double entendre. the giant recovery buddy. Sammy is a better thing of the david. Lee roth technically. But but semi. Hey sammy technically is a better singer. Than mick jagger who would you rather here. Yeah i know what i mean. I and i'll tell you one of the things that are really loved about david. Lee roth was his smart ass attitude he actually said in an interview. He was like sammy. Hagar's a great singer. He was like. But i am these singer. But i'm what these singer from these things as far as van halen. You know. I meant to get this out earlier and i don't wanna i wanna keep talking about. You know the the second. The van halen with sammy. Hagar there was a there was an episode backstage in addressing something when David lee roth would get on any venezuelans nerves and eddie van halen at one show backstage actually through an entire bowl of guacamole at david lee roth right but he misses them. Completely in hits steve perry. That's that's right so the rumor. Is that steve. Perry ride cried. Cried cried because he got hit with a bowl of guacamole. Go when one thing that i can assure you of is as i'm never ever going to be able to sing like steve perry but if more appropriately when you throw a bowl of guacamole at me i will not cry. I will not cry. I'll tell on next time we get together mexican so so they van hagar is. They called it the head some so. Actually you do you. And i have some songs. Let's kinda give them their due to so you gave me four songs. I have four songs. You have from the second incarnation.

"One thousand nine hundred eighty. Wow all right. Is that like i said. This was the first tool that i saw. Them was nineteen eighty. That's right okay. Can you fuck in fact straight. God damn i made a mistake and my my the fifth choice is of course. Can't go wrong can't go wrong with this. I never get sick of this song. I get sick and jamie's crying and never get sick of. The sun brings me back to the days hanging out with the ignorance. Yep that's another story for another. Had this ad this on vinyl eight track cassette cd downloaded it. You got another copy then. My buddy just texted me during the podcast the livestream instead. He wants the album. It's all is well. He did request the show so he wins the prize. Not only this for you. Send me a self addressed envelope. But i will be happy to autograph this on your behalf your autograph. So did you know that. Eddie van halen was in back to the future. Do ya ma. Most edward van halen was really him most. Most people think that he was he him playing the when he was when michael j. fox was playing on stage which is not the case right. Well eddie. Even when he was stuck into his his his his snuck into his father's room when he went back to the future he pulled out a cassette and he put headphones on. It said edward van halen on it and that was really an eddie van. Halen said yeah. I didn't want credit for it. It was a mess it was just. It was a lot of noise just making noise and he never admitted to it though he never up until a longtime after he finally did. Yeah that that that that was me that was me so Did you know that n even. Helen has a patent his three patent-pending but one of them one of them is called. I want to get this right when we get this right. He has a patent and it's the abstract right. What it is is he designed this strap that goes from one end of the qatar to the other goes around the back and neck and he he designed this kind of board behind the guitar that would lean on your lap or while you sit and it would leave the qatar so you hand both hands of free and you can play. It's almost like a steel guitar. Type thing yeah. Yeah sure right so did a electric guitar sure and he was working on that and i don't know it's it never knowing any venue was. Jeez you think about think about is guitars in the way that they look to you know with the stripes and whatnot. He created that he did not tape. Those he tape those and he did. Those all himself would sell to also remember that one of the things that most listeners don't know is that he was the inventor of what they call the browns. Sound the brown. Yes he would take a powers sars and try different things what. He was trying to keep up with alex's drum like he wanted to mimic his drum. I mean that's so unbelievably tactical so he emulated van. Halen has his own guitar amplifier. Line and whatnot in. This is one of those things where he was a celebrity. Just put his name on it. Actively involved in the creation and the development of this technology so dime bag dime bag. Daryl yet the unbelievable guitarist rest in peace from pan. Tara was a huge event. Halen fan right so he had wanted to eddie hard. He was making the making these special retirement. He taped all those lines on himself and he said next time we meet. I'll i'll hook you up. I'll do one right in front of you. He said we can do it together. And so dime bag. Darryl was sa- greatest thing in the world because that was his inspiration. Eddie van halen inspiration dime bag. Daryl gets killed onstage during. Show fucking tragic right so at his funeral eddie. Van halen brought the bumblebee guitar. It's the guitar. Is holding up the the black with a yellow stripes on the back cover event helen to and he puts it in his coffin with them. And he he's he never even played guitar and van halen to that guitar wasn't built. It was efficiently sure but he was holding it up. He put that in his in his so. They asked one of the guys from pancaro about that. He said if you had told us twenty years ago. If you had told daryl twenty years ago that eddie van halen give you guitar. If you've died he would have said. Kill me now. That's how much of a fan he was. How fucking cool is that. He gets his guitar would dine bag. Daryl pretty cool dime bag daryl. Play guitar listen this. It's not everybody's cup of tea but that dude was a self taught genius. Jeez by the way. Eddie van halen. So is that even ellen. Yeah by the way. Since you brought up you know bumblebee. You know the name of the red and white and black stripe guitar that he played most often. Do you know well. That is a combination of a handful of guitars. You know and i don't. I don't know that this is accurate. But it might be a fender neck kramer body. You know the innards of a less. Paul whatever it is but he affectionally referred to it as frankenstein frankenstein Did you notice that pause there. That negative craze i get it so hey wait time no no no no. We got plenty of time. We haven't dedicated a moment of this show to sammy hagar well. This is where we were going to now right so semi guy comes along and they become a whole different band like you said more polished more produced. Well i mean they're always well produced right but they become like sound right. they switch produces. he's kind of an interesting fact. That people might find interesting and completely useless so first van halen albums through the roth era. They used the guy by the name of temple. Men whose i think previous credits include like the doobie brothers so they continue on event in any van. Hanley gets more involved in the production. But you don't win. Some produces one of maybe a couple of their albums. Mick jones from the clash from farner. Over from florida okay. This has been a few mc jones is out. There isn't there mick. Jones and florida was a good producer. Guess but just just different. Different sound more polish mean. Listen you think you think of the kind of the greediness of the early van halen albums in the polish of the latest albums. Then think about the polish of..

"Yeah. Get my blood pumping through the state. Scott scott just before you actually go into your next on these great choices by the way. And i thought that one of the i know the. It's a podcast. I'm so one of the things that people should know is a lot of these records. Van halen one van. Halen to van halen. Three there were recorded in like a couple of weeks or a week or a couple of days. In between tours result was recorded in one day. they were working class band. Didn't take them years or a year to put these. Why because they fucking came up in the seventies when you earned that's nice pitches. That's what you did right. So but i agree with you. They would just they were. They were just so then we move on for my what is it. This is my one to my third song from fair warning. Great great song here about it later right now. Everybody got if you listen to. She gotta go download this stuff. This is great stuff that you probably haven't listened to in a long time or never or never. I'm sure people watching have heard it but you know a lot of people. Yeah he'd meet but say that edge right that edge that you're playing that muniz that's what the the hagar era lacked. They will polish that was shiny. They were fun. You know right. Roth roth brought that great. So then let's see. That was here about it later. From fair wanting now this is my fourth one of my fourth favourite again. Not necessarily anyone. It's played a lot but it's still a great fucking song. Great song again the vicious guitar in rock to screaming like a lunatic everyone. Everybody wants from women and children. I we get a discount.

"Shot in hell pretty much. Probably one of the only mistakes. Gene simmons ever made businesswise because that guy never makes a wrong move and we're not gonna go off on him you know. He's he's an interesting guy but you know what they are. Van halen is in a long line of bands that were rejected initially from record companies. You too was rejected by you. Know twenty or more record companies. The pretenders rejected by record companies. The fucking beatles were rejected by record companies. Because somebody didn't hear it or somebody didn't know how to market it or somebody was goddamn fucking lazy bryce and going back to the beginning. Of course you know you know. But i don't know if the listeners know that originally eddie played the drums and alex played guitar. Yeah when when they were kids. Yeah in eddie. Was out working in alex sneaking and play his drum kit finally he said you know what just fucking switch. I don't care. I don't care. Switch instruments just stay there right so then they move on right and they get. Did they get discovered and the first album comes out. What seventy eight seventy seven. The first album came out in seventy seven. And i think it was seventy seven so that same year that they got turned down by the record. Company did the demo gene simmons. I'll check my My rectangle i always thought it was seventy but either way you may be right and then from that point on the legends. Were born right. Well not before. Then so here's is one side note that that you may not know is that when they first started recording van halen and they recognized that they had an immense talent in this band but even back then in those early days there was some concern amongst the record company so they were signed to warner brothers records and they had the brothers had concerns as did the producer. I believe that david lee roth vocals were not as strong as they could be and they actually considered. I don't know how far they actually took this. But they considered replacing. David lee rob before first came out and they had a number of different lead singers considering including sammy. Hang on. maybe that's why they went after him after. David lee roth right so the komo. If if you if you look at some of those early gigs. One of one of the early Tours of van halen. They were an opening act and they were on like. I've seen a concert poses where they were. The opening acts of boston was the headliner in journeying van. Halen in sammy. We're all on the same bill back then. Imagine that l- little foreshadowing. Yeah so you know. Seventy seven seventy eight van. Halen one comes out classic album one of the greatest seventy greatest debut albums in music history and they take off. So what is your favorite van. Halen album believe it or not. I mean i think that van halen one is a flawless album. I don't think there's a song that's bad. That's bad on that as a matter of fact. Guide the original catalog and you to remember take into consideration. That was i was a van. Halen free back. Well we all we all were. Yeah yeah anybody. Anybody that grew up in winthrop knew that. But i was bigger fan of van. Halen to then. I was Vanhanen one only for the fact that venue in one was so played so much that i liked some of the things that you didn't hear so often i think van halen to is a song for song. We've had this debate. I've said this van halen song for song is I think a better album. But i'm a second album guy i've for some reason. Van halen to like better than van. Halloween candy oh i like better than the cause debut. Who else was there. I was just thinking. Oh arrowsmith i like get your wings more than featuring dream on. I always like second album for some reason. I don't know if it's just the thing. But yeah you know. I i have to tell you. I mean from from my perspective personal feelings aside. You look at what they accomplished with van. Halen one mazing out doesn't mean. I'm not a great album. Yeah on paper van. Halen one is a better in van. Halen too. I just like van halen to better yes. It's a fantastic fantastic. So but benway van halen won the fucking audacity who puts a guitar solo on an album. Nevermind album debut album right. So okay eruption. The story behind eruption is he was an even helms warming up for a gig. You'll before a gig. He's in the studio and the producer walks by his that he says the what's that he goes he's just well. Maybe who get that on tape so that was so they said okay and he does it in to the day he died eddie van halen said i could have done that better and he picks out mistakes like we think it's a masterpiece right this fucking genius. He hears he goes. I made a mistake at the top of this and then you know. I should have done this over here. I could have made it better really but his his thing. And i think some people kinda miss this especially if you think if you look at like progressive rock prog rock you know. People want absolute perfect scales and whatnot. We as listeners as readers as observers of art we love the mistakes we have those little flaws me you think about the beginning couple of cords of roxanne right and a lot of people may not know this but you know when roxanne was being recorded sting backs into a piano. And he that laughed at he does is because he bumps in in it. That's magic man. Oh i didn't know that either. Good good for good info is that with makes the noise. That do new. Yeah yeah that really. He backs into appeal. I never knew that. How did i not know that son of a bitch. That's good info party. But this is this is what this show is about of the is me educating you about hall. I'm here to help you brother. I'm your eddie van. Halen to your alex van halen. Okay all right listen. When was the first time you saw them in consett.

"A big show. Like i said two words than freaking halen. We're going to get right into it. So without further ado let me bring it on my co host. The atomic punk himself calabrese now aged. I got a lot to cover here. What's that ami. okay. Thank i can hear you working on a little technical difficulty during this episode. But that's okay. We'll get through it. Have you seen junior's great scott the. It guy is not. He's definitely he's in and out of that hot sauce money he makes it and then he doesn't so all right buddy you ready to do a good show. I'm ready to do a good show. All right van halen where to begin. So they were seventies band technically. It's hard to believe that right. Well informed in one thousand nine hundred seventy four. yeah a mayor amir ameer four years after jimi hendrix past. Isn't that crazy doesn't even. It's like they've been around that long or they weren't they. Were around that long. And then if you come back and you look at their that their touring Those websites that have toured tours and set lists. It's like seventy four seventy five seventy say like they were crazy then. They were torn not back. They were a working-class band. They certainly were. They certainly were. Do you know who the last member of van halen was to join. The last member borough But the burn. You mean like the original lineup original lineup. I would say it was michael. Anthony yeah i mean that's kind of a. It's not a no brainer question for us. it is He met alex van halen. At what in sending in college san diego they were going to like some conservatory of music right and they hit it off and he introduces them to eddie but what he was basically used for the beginning is they. They use his amps. They were like hey. Can we borrow your apps. Can we borrow this and eventually asked to join the band. Great move absolutely great move. I mean first of all. I mean underrated bass player rudimentary in terms of what he did. He was no getty. Lee jordan win whistle. Chris squire from yes but those backing vocals well i. That's that's one of the things. I wanted to talk about. 'cause everybody can talk about eddie van halen and we'll get to eddie van. Halen you know in david lee roth but the two that never get talked about as it is usually with any band right. Is the drummer and the bass player. But michael anthony. I think was a very underrated bass player that he was driving driving bass in those songs. It's almost like whites in k. From rage against the machine. I mean rage against what she wouldn't have that sound without his base. Yeah it's it's You know it's one of those things. Where michael anthony is. His base playing drove it had a funk and had a rhythm but it it didn't have the wasn't a fancy flashy play right right so he wasn't he wasn't getting league going up and down the fret for he kept the bottom edge he was he was the dusty hill of van. Halen good comparison. Yeah fair enough fair enough. Yeah i'll tell you. And by the way i don't know if i'm jumping ahead or not. He's the one guy variant halen that got absolutely fucking screwed all so we can go on. We can cover that later if you want to know you know. It doesn't matter we're going to cover whatever we cover but you know again. We can talk about eddie van halen for two hours. Sure he's he's a master a genius but michael anthony did so speculation is that he got kinda kicked out of the band because he owns a hot sauce company and he does like hot. Mustards and stuff like that. And any thought he was spending too much time doing that. But there's an interesting side story to that. Also so he thought he was committing too much time to his business and not the band so supposedly that's why he gets kicked out but he was also friends with sammy. Hagar so semi hagar in eddie van halen had a falling out in a big part of that falling was eddie van. Halen didn't like the fact that sammy hagar spending so much time in kabul and put his time into that so it sounds to me where on the street was that event hill and was kind of an asshole anyways he was control-freak he was he was a complex guy. You know so he was. He was a genius in in some ways. Short like most genius. You can attest to this part genius in this power train wreck. Yeah yeah. I think he. He was a total control guy. Yeah absolutely total. Control guy. He i think he you know eddie. Van halen was completely dedicated to the band in expected. The same but eddie had his own side projects as well. That was the deal that they had the band had. They had a deal no side projects and that was kind of thing throughout the early career. Yeah but he did. A solo album with with brian. May he played on. Beat it. okay so beat it. He played on. Beat it with no credit right. He didn't get credit. Did a favor to quincy. Jones asked him to do it. And he said yeah. Give me a case of beer. And and michael can give me a dance lesson somewhere in the future. He also said in wanting money. 'cause it would complicate things. He didn't want it to get any. He said that the it now. This is at the time. He said that we're really not supposed to do side projects. That was a thing within the band so he did the beat thing without a credit but everybody i mean it was distinctly eddie van halen guitar. Of course no one was. No one was mimicking that it was. It was the michael anthony in quincy. Jones were no dummies. They recognize that if they were able to get into play on that song that they would have a crossover hit. I mean for crying out love for those of you. That are listening right now. There was a rock station in boston. Called wbz and that played. Rockin never play michael jackson until and they did played a couple of times they played. Beat it so another interesting story behind. That is he played it. he played it in one. Take i believe it was something like that. And he was in the studio. With quincy and michael and michael left the studio and eddie kind of said. Okay do this. I want you to shop this. Put this in you know. Move this over here and then blah blah blah however he did it without michael no in and then he did it.
Wolfgang Van Halen on his Debut Album and Influences
"Hearing the whole thing. It does emphasize to me that it's dead on to say two of the touchstones here are foo fighters jimmy world. You and i have been talking about it for a while. And i mean obviously there's a ton of influences and their stuff that only you can do a lot of that but when you think of what lineage. That's what it is. Tell me about like discovering those bands. It's not like you had to dig deep in the crates to find them. They're pretty popular bands. But you know discovering this bans personally really specifically what you kinda took from them as far as inspiration. Yeah when it when it comes to. I always had this dream of doing an album with me playing everything. Just like dave grohl. Did the first firefighters album. It was just a thing. I always wanted to try. It was always on my list of like this'll be really fun. And when i got back from the two thousand twelve Van halen tour. I was kinda just like okay. Well what do i do now. And i started writing like taking it seriously. And that's when i wrote the song mammoth and it was like okay. I think I think i'm onto something here and that's kind of where it all started. And just from from the band's. I would listen to all the time. Everything from foo fighters to jimmy world to nine inch nails to tool to alice in chains queens of the stone age. You know it just kind of those influences really seemed to inspire me and Yeah i mean th but with the main thing just the dave grohl doing that first fires album and just he. I always had an affinity to two bands like blink. One eighty two and and jimmy world. I really love harmonies. And i think that's where my love for like harmonies melody. Came from with bands like jimmy world. 'cause they're just so strong with that type of stuff so i really laid the foundation for me in terms of that. Mammoth which is a aptly titled. Song is one of my favorite tracks on the album. Tell me about especially since it was the beginning. Tell me about that one coming together. Yeah it seemed to kind of it. Gave me the confidence to kind of be like. Hey okay i think i'm on the right track here. I kind of hit the the tone and the pace of what i was going for for something you know. It felt knew it felt different. It felt something that was like original in my own. It didn't sound like van halen. It didn't sound like anything. It just sounded like this might be what my music sounds

Is Remote Work Better for the Environment?
"You may remember at the start of the pandemic when the world was at a standstill. The natural world seem to be making something of a comeback. There were stories of dolphins swimming in the canals in venice goats. Taking over towns and wales nature was healing. All of this reflected this notion that life under lockdown is good for the environment. People weren't driving to work. Companies weren't using energy to heat and power big office buildings working from home might actually save the planet. The reality though is a bit more complicated here. Talk about is professor. Liam o'brien from carleton university. Halen hi thanks for having me. So if i were to say to you. Working from home is better for the environment than a working from an office. Would you agree. I would say it's actually very complicated. A lot of the tangible things like like not having to buy gas for occurs to commute. Those are really obvious to us. But we don't think a lot of the secondary effects like the fact that now are heating and cooling our homes more. We're using office equipment at home. We're using more internet most likely and in some cases where even moving further out from our work which is going to have potentially permanent consequences. Okay so let's take the example of working from home versus going to the office so we assume as occupants. I think that if we're not in our office building than than the building isn't being heated. It's not being cooled. It's not being lit or ventilated. But that tends not to be true. A lot of these systems and big buildings are scheduled so whether there's one person in there or thousands they're still going to be operating.

Album outweigh back in ninety three and straightaway man chicago and northern illinois radio in general. They really embrace this. And i feel like it's a relationship that i've been really fortunate to have for gosh man crazy number thirty years ago long time and you have some connection here too in chicago. I know steph from f three design. I think he does your local man. Stephon stephan does everything. He's yeah steffen. I think the first thing he did for me was help me. Get my website design in early two thousands and then Bizmart work for me. On my i guess my second solo album which was in a stick record and then when he has started warns. The arm in You know i've been a proud supporter of their clothing company and i love awareness stuff and they're just they're to of my favorite people on the planet. They're like family to us.

They're designed to as well in all their kind of marketing in and You know other kind kinda website and designing stuff. And i've known him so i run into him at shows like him and i always like bump into each other like. Hey man what's going on so it's always good to see him. That's amazing you've known him longer than i have. So that's That's really cool. And i'm i'm so proud of the growth. They've had their company and They're both incredibly talented. And it's inspiring you know for them to start their own kind of mom and pop business as they as they have and they grown it to the level that they have. I'm really proud to be a part of their circle. Well we got lots to get into but we always begin the episode. Every time we have a first time guest the same way and that's the essence of the show. The the question. We always ask just like every rock song has a hook. That sucks you in rock fan has a moment whether it's a band performance a song or album that hook them on rock and roll. What was it for you. Wow that's a big question The thing that hooked me on rock and roll was. I saw kiss on the midnight special on my television. When i was in the seventh grade and i it was the equivalent. I'm sure jay of our older friends. When they saw the beatles on ed sullivan that was the equivalent of that moment for me. No one's ever asked me that question to tell you the truth You know. I grew up my my folks to this day man. Both my parents love music and so it was a very musical household. The radio was always playing in. Dad would buy vinyl records of perjury artists pop artists and but yeah that was when i felt like it was something that was specifically mind. You know my parents not care for kids. They played black diamond complete with this. You know the rising drum riser in the pyro and everything manages your that. Messed me up preordained. I think it put me on the path for sure. Your kiss was an inspiration for a lot of musicians. And i think it was just the the imagery you know the the faces and the explosions and all the stuff. That kind of just pulled you in you know. The music was great too. But it just had like this power over young kids. I mean i got exposed to kiss back in like the early eighties. And i always remember knowing of them in knowing what they look like before i heard their music and then i heard their music and then i was just hooked. Yeah you know. I you know. I'm i'm probably a little older than you. So you know that midnight. Special show man that would have been nineteen seventy seven grow. This was this was early. This was. I believe this was between kiss alive. One destroyer and You know it was cool. Because i had a group of friends at school that you know we were all kind of discovering rock and roll at the same time and i remember that year in school that no kid and leonard skinner. I'm from the south. And so you know sweet home. Alabama was already the national anthem for us. And so you know the musicality of a ban like skinner We love led zeppelin and You know not long after that. We really got into bands like rush pink. Floyd bad company was big call. Rogers greatest singer of all time. You know things like that. So that set the table for me. I guess jay and then the two big bands not long after that you know when i finally started going to concerts where we saw thin lizzy. Ironically i saw them in seventy nine and that was a game changer for me and The the next summer. I saw van halen for the first time and i was cooked like that's it. I'm i gonna play guitar. You know. I have friends who go to college and get a degree and and and pursued that actually and it wasn't until i had already graduated junior college that i really ever thought of even considering it to be possible to play music as living especially for women coming from such rural backgrounds. There was nobody from where i came from. That was a professional musician. You know so. It just didn't seem possible.
Nervous system survival mode and how to get back to thriving with Nathan Chilton
"Thank you so much for coming on the show today. I'm really excited to chat. So i would love you to tell us more about yourself. And what's your story. So how did you come to be where you are today as a chiropractor and wellness coach specializing. In what you do now thinking about me so much pleasure. Well i've always been interested in the human body and a group with mammalian. Sports are always had books around the house and spines nazi books. So i've always had an interest in the human body and chiropractic clay. I was playing basketball blow and my back at the age of seventeen. I think and that was that was my first experience themselves a chiropractor at this point. It was very mechanical pain based approach in late to ron and started studying sports science halfway through degrade house thinking what to do with my life. Decided to apply for chiropractic got into chiropractic in two thousand and eight graduated in twenty twelve on then. It wasn't really until after graduating. I started to really appreciate and understand. What chiropractic is and why would offer to people and it was more of a vied to the stick but wellness approach rather than mechanical symptom approach. So that's how go into chiropractic. And and i'm no back casually been a blessing truly grateful for didn't really say his work which apply lookie lookie and nonsense but it's changed my life but is because of the power and how it changes people's lives basically unease abou the philosophy of chiropractic is. The buddy is able to heal itself. If is in the right environment and the nervous system is the system processes the environment whether it be into entity externally so working with a person with the spine to create ease in the system is balancing not stress. Response the synthetics responds in the parsing responds on. Then when the body's in state it can do wonderful things. So yeah that's how i go into it and that's why. I'm extremely passionate about about the subject about chiropractic. Going back to what you said you know when you thought when you were a teenager and you got injured that it was just you know physical manipulation and stuff like that. I think a lot of people assume that. That's what chiropractic is so talk a little bit more about how let's actually let's start with like what are the biggest misconceptions about the chiropractic. Practice a good way Talk to patients about so car isn't just about and treating pain or treating condition. Yes we can help with. Simpson such babies headaches.

We help conditions. We don't treat them is the buddy that does the halen when it's in a state of easing and that's why i'm really passionate property. Last two years is the effect of stress and five flyers funds because it's so linked to the function of the spine on a dysfunctional spine can create predominantly sympathetic patterns within the spine whether it be from physical stress emotional stress chemicals stresses they will have a stress on the nervous system.

"halen" Discussed on Chris and Rick Talk Guitars
"Also here's doing. I'm like oh you know because my i had such a a literal Perception of guitar playing. You got the pick in your right hand and you're fingering chords in your hand. That's what you do right you straw and you play. It never dawned on me that you blake tap in with your right and then so until. I actually saw it physically happening. I'm like okay that that's what's going on but no it was just more curiosity. You know like how's he doing that. You know the other thing. That was kind of odd for me back. Then that i noticed was I was really the montross and always thought that the montross record was like well. Let me put it this way. I have this thing that i've said over the years like my favorite van. Halen record is the first mantra joke. A total joke. But if you look at it here we have this tag kampelman produced record. That is named. The band is named after the hot lead guitarist that does like make motorcycle. Noise isn't pig squeals and all this other stuff is the parallels are pretty. They're there. And i've never heard eddie van halen mentioned montross as kind of an influence but always saw that as a big influence. I mean compare. You know ronnie montrose. Nettie then van and there's gonna be a lot more differences than our similarities. That whole thing is just kind of destructive. Has like it was like an aha moment for me. It's like hey that's you know very in the melody. that's one thing that i really hugely melody and hooked oriented and i think man halen was very hooky. They have but. I think it was the way that you know. The pirate techniques around the hooks. I found a little bit distracting. Didn't allow me to absorb the hooks as fully as it was something else of that nature sense it does make sense but no i mean and you know i. I've often found myself saying well. I like you know. I like michael schenker because he was really melodic. But eddie van halen really melodic capable of like yeah gave them of anything. He can play just about anything but i think he had tended to. Just do you know put more just more facts and things into in the context of a song been like michael schenker woody who had laid back so that's probably what speaks to. That's probably why sinkers spoke to me more. Because i'm kinda more of a straight ahead like you know person. Yeah and i totally hear that too. And i think i is come down on. That's on shankar side to for for those reasons. Yeah i think especially as as time went on. I think he was. He was just trying to fill space more and more. And it's like dude. You don't need to fill that much space. you know. I understand what you're trying to do. I understand what you tried to do in the early days because essentially musically it was a trio right. it was based on guitars with a vocal. So he was trying to fill space which is cool you. you know. that's something you think about when you're a trio but yeah i think a lot of times. It was unnecessary. And but but i think he is terms of alum melodic player. He he definitely was a lot of. I think if you listen to a lot of cool stuff like the intro to women in love on the second album that Harmonic tapping eastern is actually a really cool intro to that song and it's very melodic and it's really cool. I think there were a lot of like if you listen to his records. Their little flashes of lake really brilliant. I think in terms of melody and and what he's doing that. I really take away and just really appreciate you know and the night away. Hello yes there's more hooks than a big job in totally bogged now especially that one. There's still a bucket of whenever i hear right now and just you know i. It takes me right back to that time. I remember urine dance. The night away blasting over like a at a dance school or something like that. And it's just that's just so a bucket of of time you know wondering that's really when you're saying that i thought or something that i experienced maybe three years ago or so my life or a a gallery of antique galleries shop and she has intershop. She has a turntable with a huge shitload of like old. Lp's and sometimes i was in there after they close knows hanging out and i'm like i'm going to put on record so i went and found the green one that has want on it unless it was that women's and i think is okay all right so women children i put that on there i listen to it both sides m i thought was you know i don't i don't like this all this seems like Like he's phoning in. Because i'm like. I'm hearing like riffs that he did on previous records. Just kind of put it in there and mixed up a little bit and it seemed like a berry like somebody just putting something together. Just guitar for guitar sake. And i'm like At that moment in time it did not really speak to me. And i thought i don't like this record at all and after eddie van halen past. I was very surprised to see some people who icier musical tastes with a great singling out that record as one of their favorite gertz which just goes to show you thing. That's so cool about music is it speaks to people in different ways. And the other thing is like music is like lsd. It's sometimes it's about settled setting so it could move that i was in at the time. It just didn't speak to me. But i actually listened that record. I'm thinking i had a picture of eddie van. Halen listening to all his reviews sticking guitar. Parts is like what can i use. I need something here. Let me grab that from this. Let me read that in the song and put it in there. And i didn't like the record at all on that particular. Listen so it's really interesting to see. I mean we're all different. You get different things from music and there's people out there that that record spoke to their favorite record. Yeah that's what i think is interesting about it too is just like you're saying i've talked to so many people about van halen and they'll mention mentioned album that i'm like he getting diver down or some weird album. It's like okay. That's your favorite like you say everybody's different everybody one of the coolest things that i experienced my friend mark and i went to the reunion show. They did what i think. Two thousand fifteen or something like that you know it was with roth. Wolfgang was on base. We had to go. Because he and i had seen the band when they first started we saw him open for sabbath here in seattle. You know when they were just starting out and it was insane. So of course we had to go to the union show and it was it was mixed bittersweet because they're all old dudes up their daily rosters looked like an old man can puttering around on stage but it was still it was still cool to see but These people next to us had never seen the original lineup right. They were younger than us than they'd they'd probably seen the hagar years and stuff like that. And so mark and i were more than happy to let tell them all of our exploits from the seventies going to see the original lineup of the band and they were just they were just You know blown away and they were they. Were you know they were happy to hear all are ridiculous stories about you. Know how we'd gone to see them in the early days so it was kind of neat to be next to these people who they were going to see at least a close facsimile of the original lineup but not quite but it was kind of neat to see them so excited to see that you know mark and i had seen the original lineup. But it was. It was cool man. It was insane to see that lineup lives. It was really cool if you talk to people that have kind of seen them. I never saw hagar us. Because i i just i don't care for that year at all or the or the totally unmentioned gary sharon years but that original lineup. Seeing that live was really cool in like l. a. and stuff when they were just getting started just how many jaws must hit the floor. Oh yeah india. Posted that link to that.

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.

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. Done..

"You know, that's the thing on Surface these songs may seem oh, this is a o r or hard typical commercial hard rock radio friendly, but then you hear all these small things that add is doing in the background and all these really crazy ideas and riffs that you don't hear anywhere else in Panama is a perfect example of such songs. And also again Lee Roth brilliant here as well really get you going really gets you pumped up the intro. How about that intro it just so perfect especially when it finally goes into that main page and Alex Van Halen comes into like Fix it up, you know it just just perfect. So I really don't see any flaws with that one now top. Jim is kind of silly a bit off again. What's really Redeeming the track is a displaying of course, but I always felt it was a bit silly and that's fine that kind of Suits Van Halen, but I think that the record would have been stronger if it had a different track they're drop dead legs has a brilliant code with a guitar work out. So the song is good itself. But then when it reaches the end, there's this really great Van Halen moment. And of course Hot for Teacher another him back here. I'm glad you liked that one the lyrics, you know, the thing about the lyrics what do you think about their lyrical content? I wanted to ask you about that regarding this page. Killer album. Yeah, for example this song Hot for Teacher but in general to yeah, to be honest. I didn't really pay much attention to page here. For some reason. I thought that the music was a redeeming Factor yet again, but I don't know I can't really recall the the lyrics you may have to search it off. Yeah, that's kind of a an answer that makes sense. Because to me Van Halen were never about the lyrics the lyrics are kind of whimsical sort of you know, they they suit George this kind of high school, maybe early college Vibe, but that's fine because that's what they do best and they're devoid of pretension faith in that sense. But what I really appreciated what's going on behind those lyrics the energy and the musicianship, you know, and I can't think of any other bands like this song. Only cruise maybe somewhat similar but Motley Crue to be fair as good musicians as they maybe did not really have such jobs. You know, it's very very different from Van Halen. So not the crew were kind of heavier than than Van Halen Right, maybe somewhat but you know the way I see it if that debuted no record can come out by Van Halen. They would be no Motley Crue there would be no wait this hard rock for better or worse..

"He was the guy that they would rent their equipment from and so they decide not to just let him into the band because that way they wouldn't have to pay for the equipment. This is such a bizarre story. Especially knowing how important David Lee Roth was for the overall sound of a dog. And he was a huge star in his own right just like a d so this is one of those store unbelievable stories when all the stars align and and off these people find one another somehow but don't get me wrong behind their success. There was a lot of hard work and years of constant rehearsal years of grinding out and the band finally got signed in nineteen seventy-seven. I even think that they were initially spotted by Gene Simmons from kiss and he wanted to do some work with them. But eventually it was a tad Templeton that got them in the studio the famous producer and he produced some of their most wage. Well known records as we're going to see later on another interesting thing about Eddie. We can honestly say without any doubt. It's it's just the objective truth that Eddie Van Halen With his playing has totally transformed the way rock guitar was seen you know, he did things with his guitar that were unheard of at that time and he was basically a prodigy. There's a story that had the as a young boy fourteen fifteen year-old that he could already play the entire Opus of Eric Clapton's imagine at that age. He was already capable of doing that and then of course once he reached the maturity that he had a very distinctive style that took the World by storm. So this is something we're going to emphasize I think during our reviews and our discussions so long Van Halen from then on went through some changes David Lee Roth, unfortunately left the band in Nineteen Eighty-Four nineteen eighty-five birth. Some people actually think that that was a good change as the guy who stepped in was Sammy Hagar another veteran another great singer who was on the scene even before Van Halen emerged. He was with the famous hard rock band called Montrose and had a very successful solo career prior to joining the band So for some people here almost an upgrade of sorts, but there's a lot of discussion about that. There are people who are squarely into David Lee Roth. Who supports David Lee Roth is the true voice of Van Halen and then you have people who are more inclined to emphasize Hagar's era they call the band from that era van Hagar. So that's another thing. This is a very interesting split for that reason. I decided to choose three records to record it with David Lee Roth on home. Girls and one with Sammy Hagar, so we're going to discuss how they feel differently. I hope you have much to add to that. So without further Ado, let's get down there. Now, we can say revolutionary debut album. So before I start praising it any further, I want to know your opinion. I want to know what you think about this record whether you listen to it with fresh ears. How does it feel at this time in this age for somebody who is not that experience when it comes to Van Halen? Yes, I listen to it with a with a pair of fresh ears..

Jack White replaces Morgan Wallen as 'SNL' musical guest
"Van Halen last night on Saturday night Live The thing that people are talking about besides the fly sketch that they did to open this show, they spoofed the vice presidential debate you know with, of course, with the fly. 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.

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.

Remembering Eddie Van Halen with Steve Gorman
"Joining me now is Steve. Gorman who was the drummer in the Black Crowes who now plays with trigger hippy and before we talk about some of the Black Crowes stuff in your book I. I saw tweets even it was talking about Eddie Van Halen, which is Kinda. Why you here you say there will be many many words written and spoken about Eddie. Van. Halen, over the next few days, weeks, months and years those millions of words will never come close to expressing what he meant a rock music what he meant to guitarist and what he meant to the guitar itself that's pretty powerful statement Mr Gorman what did Eddie and remind me to rock music I. Think it's it's pretty simple. You can say that he and Jimi Hendrix of the two guys. That truly, and and only the two guys that moved the needle for the guitar itself I mean Hendrix. came out of a blue based. seem. And took the playing and the tone he could get to a new place but even hail and. Really almost came in from another country. Another planet I should say another he's like an alien life form I mean, he was a virtuosic player obviously but he He reinvented what what you could do is to guitar and the fact of the matter is this. Like Hendrix. But even to a greater degree, anybody tries to play like Eddie. Van Halen. Just sounds like a mind a mimic they. It's like rich little doing Johnny Carson okay. Yeah. That kind of sounds like him but. There's nothing nobody's ever been able to do any van. Halen. Did it make it feel a certain way? That each just the and he was that way at twenty two I mean, this is this is not a guy like it's not like David Blaine magic tricks where he gets bigger and better every year he started with card tricks that other people did I even Halen hit the ground running with Van Halen one playing an instrument that have been around for centuries unlike anybody else had ever done I mean he was on the Mount. Rushmore. Of Great Depar- players. At twenty two years old and then, and then he stuck around for another forty years still playing unlike anybody before sin. So I just think that in terms of. You know. Sheer unique. Mindset ambition combined with just. Great talent obviously. But but also phenomenal work ethic I mean he's just a complete unicorn in every sense of the word. How would you describe his guitar sound and I say that I know what I think of it but I wasn't I just messed van Halen like I came around right as you guys were blowing up honestly so that for me the van Halen was slightly classic rock slightly old rock to me as A. Kid. So as someone 'cause, you're just years older than I am but how would you describe his guitar sound someone who was in in it and living it in love and Van Halen? Well I can tell you that that was thirteen years old the first time I heard Van Halen and I remember it. I remember where I was I remember who I was with. It was going home from school in Hopkinsville Kentucky. You really got me there kinks the you know the their cover, the kinks song came on the radio. And and it was playing already and I said, Hey, mom turn that up. It was me and my mom and my friend Brooke. Lofton. The three of us in a car and she turned it up and I my first thought was. That must be like a live version of the king song and I was thinking like we don't they don't rock or do they. But when it hit that Solo and then by the time, the song ended I realized well, that does that's not ray Davey seeing this is clearly a cover version but what on earth is this and it was like making my? Hair on the back of my neck stand up. This is a time when I thought punk rock was the coolest thing in the world. and. The truth is Van Halen was more punk than the punks because they were truly breaking down a bunch of barriers if you will or they were going in their own. You know there hasn't been a band like Van Halen since led Zeppelin in terms of. Rock band hits the ground running at full steam and it obliterates everything in their path in a certain sense and. Jimmy van Halen sound it sounded like California was in my head. You know soon as I realized soon as I heard about them, they're from La, and as soon as I saw David Lee Roth and then as soon as I heard more than you know the next thing I heard was eruption Guitar Solo and you know hearing just two pieces of their first album and seeing what they look like it just. It felt brand new and it already felt like they're going to be around forever. You just knew from the jump and this is me as a thirteen year old kid who is obsessed with music. This band is one of the Alzheimer's like there's nothing like this and they all have the chops and the other thing too as long as I'm just rambling incessantly any van Halen was a great rhythm player. It wasn't just about the Solos he led the band rhythmically and he's also it needs to be noted not that it's not obvious. He's a hell of a songwriter I mean he really was. As I said before he's a true Unicorn I mean, just just nothing like it. What does this sound like do you? It sounds frequent and right in right in the zone near your your key. That's one thing because listen I played a little bit I don't play even as good as my friends who are real life musicians, but it's perfect frequency and frequency is in the tone or the, but as because it's a lot. I mean Brad Paisley plays unnoticed Brad. Paisley. Because I hear the chicken Pickin I hear a very distinct sound and again I didn't catch van Halen as it was happening in my childhood. But when I hear Van Halen Song even if I, it's I, don't know who it is. Just hear the guitar part I hear the Eddie van Halen because I how fast he shreds but the pattern that he does it, you can just tell. By By his fingers and it just kind of again it's hard to explain when you ask about music but that's what I think about and I try to. Always try to. Prepare analogies and most of the people who listen to this podcast here between twenty to forty, and if you were to make an analogy to another band, it's GonNa be tough because Van Halen was massive. But who later on had the kind of? Impact or. Reflected the mass listening that Van Halen had well. What band what yeah. What band can we look at now or in the last ten years and see? Okay. Well, that's how big Van Halen was to the people that were the kids in the eighties.

"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.

"Really side holidays you don't like swearing, but I just think that means that emphasis because we weren't forgetting what so important. Let's talk a little bit about why I think that let me sort of justify my my position here. Any van Halen? When he when when van Halen came out when we when Eddie van Halen came out, he revolutionized several aspects of music kind of it once. First of all. He his playing style was different. Cool riffs with a lot of like open string stuff going on cannot just like chunk along and power chords. Which is kind of which was kind of a lot of bands were doing up to up to any kind of brought back the riff in in a lot of ways. But Eddie did something different. He played with both hands on the neck of the tar what became known as two hand tapping. And he there's been arguments, you know, guitar players are crazy. You know, any man Helen didn't do that. I I saw Django Reinhardt do that in nineteen you know. Right. Okay. There hasn't been probably tar player live that didn't one time fret down and take a finger atop the neck and go, oh, that's a cool sound, but that's pretty much as far as it went. What what Eddie did with that type stuff was he was able to create the kind of do things with our pays you, really?.

This time we could talk do know the video on what I think might be a good path. I think it be fun for them for for at least Eddie detri-. But. What I think everybody misses in all this stupid nece surrounding this amazing band is any fucking van Halen. That's what may look look. Listen, guys. There are it's like expected. I mean, some guys are old remembers. I think you guys can can relate to this as well. You know, when a band comes out you're expecting like good songwriting good singing good playing. I mean, that's like you wouldn't you know, you don't wanna hear shit. You know, you you if it's coming out it's being cranked up on your rock station, or on rock radio on the internet, or whatever it is that there's a certain standard, you know? It's going to be good. Okay. And there have been tons of bands before van Halen and after van Halen there, really good, man. They have the whole thing going on. They've got the cool riffs. They've got the great songwriting. They have the the great frontman. Great background. Vocals. Awesome rhythm section. You know? That's like that's a given. Like better have that you know. And that HALE, and of course, you know, the, you know, they they have all that, obviously, you know, but van Halen like for them. That's like that's just like the baseline. That's just like the an army baseline isn't a bass guitar. I mean, that's just the base line of of music for them mainly because of Eddie fucking van Halen. He's the this is what everybody doesn't realize is like I said, there's always great. There's been always group bands on it there. But how many of them have Eddie van Halen in them one? I mean, Eddie van Halen is to van Halen as to what Jimi Hendrix was to the Jimi Hendrix experience. Mitch and no great musicians but without Jimmy Hendrix. They're just like kind of like a couple of cool guys who can. Play. Really, well, but they're not really anything special. What makes van Halen van halo? What made them special was Eddie fucking van Halen..
