That's funny. I used to call him Metallichi when he was younger. At first he wasn't crazy about it when I just started calling him Mal. Then he found out that Angus Young calls Malcom that. He was cool with it after that. :mrgreen:

What's his size? I'll get one for him and send it to you.


Large. Thanks! You know I'll be happy to compensate you Dean, if you'll tell me how much it is.

They are heavy, though. And look how much attention I'm attracting.

This was the right place for my post.

DLR said VH is it's own genre - Big Rock.

Deal with it lipstick boy.

Van Halen plays the most candy-ass metal you're gonna hear. Right up there with Motley Crue. VH did some good pop songs, though. Between 1977 and 1984.

Yeah they did. I was fortunate enough to have seen they live twice in the seventies. Opening for Black Sabbath in '78 and then with Aerosmith in '79. They sure changed mainstream rock in those early days.

side note: To this day people say that VH blew away Black Sabbath every night on the '78 tour. I was there. Van Halen was great, but you just can't blow away Ozzy and the boys. Their catalog was too amazing by that year!

VH in '79 - DLR was fairly messed up by the end of the set.

I've heard that about VH blowing away Sabbath. I always wondered how that was possible. Iommi is too competitive and great to allow that. VH was obviously very fresh and Eddie VH had his own thing going on and he knew how to come up with hooks. Sabbath was sort of in decline after the first 6 albums. In terms of energy, I'm sure VH gave Sabbath a run for their money. In terms of heaviness- no chance.

I only know the first 4 Van Halen albums and then bits of the 2 after that. Pretty much nothing after that was ever worth more than a curious listen for a few seconds here and there. That said, I have no idea how VH gets in the Heavy Metal category, fucking or otherwise. I'd call em Pop or Rock, sometimes even Hard Rock, but never Metal and certainly not Heavy by any means.

^Sounds like you've never seen them live. They are heavy to me and to fucking millions of other people. But that is your opinion and you are entitled to it. :)

True, I have never seen them live.
I can't imagine that would change DLR's cheesiness or EVH's wheedley-deedley lighter-than-air guitar style. Perhaps AVH's double-kick drums have some heaviness, though.

Ozzy sucks so bad and always will. Iommi, Geezer and Ward were the band and Dio / Appice joining made it 30 times better.

Fair Warning is my favorite VH, hands down.

imo: ozzy helped make sabbath so great. sure, we can go on and on about how the band invented whatever
and thank goodness iommi made ends meet by overcoming his handicap via heavy via down tuning and rinse, repeat...
but ozzy with that voice -- call it what you will. first listen was "whoa, is that a man? a woman? a witch? a warlock?
is it in pain? a tortured soul exhaling for the very last time into a blurred mountainside?".

and as for vh: dlr runied that for me.
and not just the over the top cheesecorn of it all. his whole technique/delivery. i refer to him as a "talk-singer".
same goes for johnny cash.
i don't care how GEENYUSS the lyrics are, or how amazing of a story teller you are...
a narrator speaking over an instrumental track leaves me cold and angry.

I recommend going. I saw two of the '13' tour shows. The band was killer both nights. Ozzy's voice cracked a lot during 4 to 5 songs at the outdoor show. At the Los Angeles show his voice was perfect.

I'm going to do the pre-sale with a friend on the 9th. We'll be going for the mid-level in the price range.
