Where do you begin?

I'll post two. One from each era. Are they my favourites? I don't know, but they've meant alot to me and I love both. 

The first one might seem an odd choice, but he loved his "keys" and they were a big part of the VH sound.

as for the DLR era.....most of the songs are utter garbage but I like a few on 1984.

I know it's overplayed but Jump is easily the best DLR song imo

"Running With The Devil" for me,although "Everybody Wants Some" is also a fav..

I'm also more of a fan for the Sammy era so from that "When It's Love" is classic,but 5150 is my favourite overall album.

"Drop Dead Legs." So many to choose from. This is a really sad day in music. EVH was a virtuoso. 

Doug, I don't know who you are or where you came from, but this is the song that sprang to mind for me as well.

 

That said there are a couple grips of DLR era VH songs that are quintessential, imho.

 

As for the Van Hagar era, not nearly as many, actually, very few, but one comes to mind and that is Finish What You Started.

 

As already mentioned we lost an irreplaceable icon, that definitely impacted our lives greatly.

RIP maestro.

    • So I listened to this and it's pretty bland on teh first listen. Only real stand out was the last song, because it's a slow ballad and suits the bland vibe. Hopefully will get better with more listens...
    • I hate threads like this. My expectations for this are so high they will certainly drop when I hear it. Then afetr more listens it will surge I;m sure, but there is no way it can come close to what i am expecting lol
    • Album out now... this ROCKS!!!                         https://gbdeclaration.org/
    • AWESOME!!! Song...   https://gbdeclaration.org/
    • going to play today at some point. expecting a cheesefest but in a good way 
    • I've never seen that before on Spotify - says full album available soon. it's not clear if they've held in back or there's been an error uploading it 
    • From what I understand, Pete and Steve are extremely pissed at Mark "Gus" Scott. https://www.madrock1025.com/trixter-members-go-public-with-feud/ In an argument that’s gone uncomfortably public, Trixter drummer Mark “Gus” Scott has fired back at his disgruntled bandmates, claiming he only wants what’s best for the group. The feud began when Steve Brown and P.J. Farley told interviewers Scott was on “the sh*t list beyond belief,” comparing him to disobedient dog. Now, in a new interview, Scott says the band’s problems go well beyond just one dissenting member. “I don’t know if the ‘bad dog’ is the best analogy and the best manner in which to visualize what’s happened with Trixter,” he says. “I think there’s been different ideologies within the band for a very, very long time. We’ve been together over 30 years. So I think there’s always been — I don’t wanna say a ‘rift,’ but more recently, if there was a rift, it was certainly becoming more and more exponentially grown.” While not naming names, Scott says his issues are with the band’s “leadership,” adding he refuses to be “led by ignorance.” Ouch. How long will it be before Trixter either calls it quits or parts ways with Scott? Have the members of Trixter been together too long?
    • What's the story there? I recall a couple videos between the two "new" albums that portrayed them all as good buddies. 
    • A magnificent hidden gem from Ted Poley.    
    • Ok, so they did shoot a video for "Breakdown." I fucking love this song!!
