One of my all time favorite albums turns 30 years old today. Yes, 30 that's three decades, I'm feeling old. The smack in the face shouldn't have crept up on me because the title. Van Halen's '1984' is the big 20-Ten!
My how time flies by, it was 19 years ago today Bobcat Goldthwait set fire to Jay Leno’s chair on the ‘Tonight Show’. That was one of many crazy stunts pulled on TV. Thought through inspiration, I’d run down some of my favorite crazy moments from TV and maybe get a few of yours.
Back on this date, March 27, 1986, Sammy Hagar played his first live show as the front man for Van Halen in Shreveport, LA. Hagar replaced the flashier, Diamond David Lee Roth or a bit better than a decade. Van Halen is one of my favorite rock bands of all time. Now the obvious and classic question is who is better or maybe better put, who do you like better, David Lee Roth or Sammy Hagar?
Today is Sammy Hagar's birthday. He's 65 and that's 10 over 55. (insert rim shot). One of my favorite rock bands of all time is Van Halen. So being Sammy Hagar's birthday, this is a great time and excuse to ask that age old question. Who is better for Van Halen, Sammy Hagar or David Lee Roth?
