  1. was the last time you listened to Van Halen II and Fair Warning?

    That's all I"m saying.

    Except MH sung all those harmonies.

    What's a good bass player?

    Who's MH? Michael Hamthony?

    And are you asking if he's a good bass player?

    It's been probably 15-20 years. Good stuff.
  4. Anthony was not a great bass player, but man, could he sing. He was, also, a good complement to EVH.
  5. Adam Barkley

    Adam Barkley Mayday!

    Me and my buddy Larry make fun of this band to no end. To the point of reciting the talking breakdowns ("Running a little hot tonight... I can barely see the road for the steam coming off it...") and acting out Roth's Flying Splits.

    Not sure how this helps the thread in the slightest, but I thought I'd share my two.

    Before I get attacked by a rabid VH fanboy, this is just light-hearted ribbing, don't take it personal.

  6. My personal favorite is him talking to Vai's guitar in Yankee Rose offa his solo stuff.
    Thats a horny little guitar.
