From the late 70’s to the late 80’s there was plenty to love – and plenty to hate – about music. But without a doubt, the undisputed kings of rock and roll for this period were Van Halen (or as they were sometimes called by fans in the late 80’s, Van Hagar). From the first mind-blowing notes of Eruption on, Eddie redefined rock guitar and inspired a new generation of wannabe rock gods. Alex kept the back beat steady, hard, and fast. Michael thumped the low end and provided great high harmonies. And Dave… well, he was always Dave (“C’mon Dave, give me a break.” “One break, coming up!”) At least until Sammy stepped in and replaced him.
Admit it Halen fans, even Fair Warning and Diver Down rocked. Hardcore fans from the beginning are likely to put 1984 near the top of their best albums of all time list, while late comers might argue that 5150 refined their sound while keeping their hard edge with better vocals. No matter where you fall on the spectrum, Van Halen was a generation-defining band. Yes, I know they’re still around, but come on – the 80’s were their kingdom and they ruled with a rockin’ fist.
Whether you want to relive those glory days or just find out what all the fuss is about, you can do it at the Win-River on Friday, February 9th when Hot For Teacher – The Van Halen Experience is here live!
