As anyone who has seen a recent interview with EVH will attest, the man is a spiteful prick.However, for better or worse, he was the most influential guitarist since Hendrix and managed to forge a unique, instantly identifiable sound which most of his slavish imitators never even approached. Roth's Borscht-belt schtick kept things from getting too serious-anyone lumping them in with Maiden/Priest et al has clearly never heard the band.It's called a sense of humor and it's often sorely missing from rock'n'roll.Sexist? I don't think so. That's DAVE in bondage on the WACF poster, not some bleach-blonde band-aid(He's done a twist!) Did Dave like pussy? Probably just as much as any red-blooded male in his twenties(ok, maybe a little bit more). If anyone wants to cite a Van Halen lyric that is demeaning to women I'm all ears-oh yeah, I forgot, you've never heard them.
Anyway, I found Julian's recasting of VH as shamanic
fucking hilarious. Lighten up, Heads!
