    Hey Guys,

    This is going to be the TSR Thread for all things Van Halen, whether it be a new tour or album, or the makings of your own replica frankenstrat guitar.

    I preferred Eddie when he had long hair and had a cigarette holder on his guitar. He also came up with his own techniques but now he doesn't stand out as much.

    I know he is appreciated but people will only really call him a legend once he dies (like Randy Rhoads, Hendrix, Dimebag etc.)

    And does Van Halen actually have any new (this decade) songs?

    I get what you're saying dude, and no, I think I remember David Lee Roth saying that they haven't written a song together since like 1978.

    I'm a big Van Halen fan - well, of all their stuff with Roth up to and including the 5150 album - there's some great stuff on those early albums. I gave their latest a listen but just couldn't get into it. I had to laugh a few years ago when Wolfgang and One Direction supposedly had some words in the lobby of a hotel they were staying in, I'm sure those ***** have no idea who his father is.

    Yeh same, I'd say that Van Halen and 1984 were the best. Yeh 2012 was terrible in my opinion mainly because their tone is completely different and not in a good way. And dude! That's hilarious, One Direction are such dicks!
