Been a long time since the last time I had a Van Halen video… a quick look tells me it’s been almost two years. That’s just… wrong. So it’s time to get that fixed. Can I tell you how hard it is to find some good quality Van Halen videos on YouTube (at the time I’m writing this). I was thinking of actually using something fom VH III – the one album they did with Gary Cherone. (Despite its lower-than-usual-for-Van-Halen sales numbers, it was actually a decent album. Except for the last track. That one, not so much.)
In my searching, I did come across one number that has featured heavily in my “getting pumped up” playlists… Humans Being from the Twister soundtrack – – a video I didn’t realize actually existed.
In 1998, I took my friend Danny to see them in concert as a graduation/going away present (right before he went to Army basic). That’s a story for another time, but he was stoked as soon as the band started the opening riffs. That tour was the first time it would be played live. And it was awesome.
