I couldn't find another one of these so i decided to make one of my own...sorry if there is another out there.

Personally I'm not a huge fan of Van Halen. While EVH is pretty awesome on guitar the band in general isn't that great (they have a few good songs like: Unchained, Panama, Eruption <<< (occasionally) Dreams, And the Dredle will Rock, etc. I suppose just post your thoughts on the band and stuff similar to that.

I like a lot of Van Halen songs, and I think as a whole the band is fairly talented.

Lyrically I like David Lee Roth, because he obviously loves girls. :D

However, I'm not a fan of his voice (nor a fan of Van Halen's other vocalist).

Eddie is, in my opinion, an average guitarist at best.

Sure, he was flashy and could play fast, and he did have some great riffs, but his solos were almost always wankfests.

I mean, they rarely had any direction in them, and would consist of some licks, tapping, and bending, but none of it sounded very fluent.

I've never liked Van Halen. It just sounds like typically cheesy rock music to me. Okay, the first two albums aren't bad but the rest of their music does nothing for me. I don't really like Eddie Van Halen as a guitarist but I respect him alot and regard him as one of the most infleuntial guitarists of all time, as he redfined what electric guitar could do.

It's cheesy, but it's fun. I like Eddie's riffs more than his soloing.

You didn't really look too hard. In a .17 second search, the UG Search function located 14 threads with "Van Halen" in the title. I'll provide you linkage to the relevant ones

Those are the relevant ones that haven't already been locked(for whatever reason)

Maybe it has something to do with the position of the planets, or the angle of the sun. Maybe the concentration of nitrogen in the air....

Maybe someone took that stick out of your ass?


And now they want to put it back.
