Just saw Van Halen's 2008 Tour in Atlanta, GA this weekend. They were pretty impressive. Eddie's still got it and you could tell Dave's getting old but could still belt it out when he needed to. Wolfgang is a beast on bass and the drum solo was killer too.

Anyone else seen them live since they came out on the road and thoughts? I heard some of the earlier shows weren't quite up to par but now that they've been on the road a few months they are definately bringing it.

They pretty much played right through all the old Dave-era classics. Closed the encore with Jump.

They were d*mn good.

I saw them back in October and I'm seeing them again in April for their last show. It was amazing and one of the best shows I've seen. I can't wait to see them again.

I saw them. It was pretty awesome, but nothing compared to the show I went to before that, Roger Waters. Eddie and Dave have great stage presence, but Wolfgang was lacking a little. He could have gotten better throughout the tour though. To anyone who is going to see them: you'll have fun
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

So I guess they're still good live. Right Here, Right Now is a kick-ace live album . . . . anyone else agree?
what happened to the proposed Kirk Hammett flamenco album?


His acoustic didn't sound good with wah pedal, I suppose.
