    A Holden Caulfield for the masses if you will?

    I was never a Van Halen fan (the group), but alwas appreciated what a great musician Eddie was. I grew up next to Pasedena and heard them at backyard parties and always hated Roth. He really couldn't sing back then. Since he couldn'tsing on the albums, just imagine how bad he really was. Eddie, on the other hand was already great.

    Too bad he and a local kid I grew up with, Tommy Gerven, never got together, they would have been awesome. Unfortunately they were in battling bands back in the day. Ah, good times, high parties, cheap, but shitty weed and soCal bands trying to make it big.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    ... and get to the learning Japanese song!

    I spent a summer in West Covina back in like 1980 and my older cousin would take me with him to parties.
    I was 15 but looked older. We were at a big keg party and I am pretty sure the band was mammoth. Wasn't really paying attention until a crazy guitar solo and someone put a small plate of blow under his nose while he was ripping. I think it was eddie but can't be sure. I was like, whoa. Not too long afterward, the cops broke the party up. Tons of people, it was loud. Southern California was crazy back then.

    Yes. Awesome sauce galore. Can even hear the drums blead through from the live recording.

    Don't stop half way.
    Be amazed to the very endly end.



    DLR managed to put lyrics to that.
    Not exactly the most complicated lyrics, a few repeats here and there and it all worked.

    Somewhere, he lost it in a turn
    Now trouble seems to fit him like a glove
    First come, first served, he's serving it back
    He travels light, without a pack, without love

    Leather cross his thighs
    Blasting out the night, his cap hides his eyes
    One eye on the road, price upon his head
    One ear to the ground, he's listening to the dead

    Blind to himself, and he's laughing up his scheme
    Looking back in anger, the city is relieved
    Vision of light, child of the night passing by

    He comes from nowhere and he turns on his own
    Late for the hanging, yes he's headed for the moon
    And hang 'em high

    Listen to this!
    One man band. Great guitar and the bass, drums, singing and mix all hold together nicely.

    New to me.

    Given a precondition or premise, a conclusion or logical consequence and a rule or material conditional that implies the conclusion given the precondition, one can explain almost anything.
