Song starts at 24:55 or so if you don’t want to sit through the whole thing. I haven’t heard the original in years, but the sax sounds exactly the same. Dave does his “smokey smooth” vocals and I think he sounds just fine. Three and half stars!

15:00 – Dave talks about Van Halen’s tour cycle being every 3 and half years. Says something like “we’ve been around so long you just can’t go out every year.” And, “The last thing you want to hear is, ‘weren’t you just here?’” He compares their touring cycle to that of the Rolling Stones and U2.

So I finally had some time to go back and record some of Dave’s “new” songs from these DRL shows (Jackie Wilson, Baby Driver, Baker Street) using Audacity. I’m just saving them as mp3s for my listening pleasure. But I thought for sure one of the recent shows had a “new” disco-y/funky song in it? Now I can’t find it.

I haven’t listened to each show completely, I just skip through every minute or so, but I can’t find the disco tune. I think it was a full song – and pretty catchy – but I may be thinking of something else.

Anyone know what I’m talking about?

Hey Jason,
No Happy? So against my better judgement, I lurked over at the Links and discovered there WAS some sort of disco song in the Hot Rod episode, but later on, that episode was taken down and replaced with a different Hot Rod episode. The new episode had the song cut from it.

Strange… Maybe he’s going to use the song for something more important? In the meantime, hopefully someone has a copy. They have one floating around at the Links, but I’m not a member.

In addition to Happy, I think there was an acoustic Ice Cream Man too. You gotta draw the line somewhere, lol…
I don’t have the song from the hot rod episode. I haven’t watched any full episodes since he came back with the all-audio format, I usually just skim through them to see if there’s any new music to save. Must’ve missed the hot rod one.

Here’s the Ice Cream Man one:

I am surprised that Dave is still doing this… he isn’t getting many views. I used to think Dave was the coolest motherfucker. Now, I can’t even watch these, even though I am one of the few subscribers he has.


The poor folks play for keeps down here…They’re the living dead. Nobody rules these streets at night like Van Halen!!

I don’t listen to them very often, but I do enjoy hearing him spin a yarn when i have some time. I listened to this last one while lounging on the couch after work yesterday. And while I mostly drifted in and out of sleep, I was amazed at how passionate Dave is about the merits of wool socks. He can be a very good storyteller, but there isn’t much of an audience for it I guess.

I’d love to be stuck next to him on an airplane and just listen to him prattle on about whatever. Maybe…

They should put Dave in a McDonalds commercial sitting next to the guy who gets annoyed easily. :mrgreen:


When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

We’re going to the Call Of Duty® Gaming Empire Mega All-Pro Heavyweight Internationals that now takes up a 17,000 seat arena for three days. It doesn’t really matter what it’s called, that’s how I feel. These people competing are not contestants anymore, these are athletes. There are now universities that not only sponsor but field teams of gamers requiring all the qualifications and specifications that you would for a contact football player or a professional tennis player or any other sports team. So the question is, is a gamer an athlete?
Let’s back up… Chess teams have been around for as long as I have and a couple of lifetimes before. We never think twice about the UCLA chess team. They’re sweating. I saw a commercial about an off road 4-wheel vehicle that said, “2 mph has never been so exciting.” It looked like the Jeep was going to fall over backwards and the chick at the wheel was squealing with ecstatic glee. I knew I had to have both, the Jeep and the dame. Perhaps if I bought the Jeep first, it would facilitate the later (you have to think like a guy). 2 mph was fine by me on both accounts. Besides, I’m at the age now where if I go any faster they can’t see who’s driving. Priorities do shift.
I think they’re athletes. Did your heart rate go up to 280 BPM? I think I’ve heard some great material at the Rehab Beach Club in Las Vegas that got my heart rate up to 280 BPM. For me, that’s standard when I’m walking out in front of Madison Square Garden. At Van Halen’s all-time great we had 350,000 people in attendance one night. I’m trying to remember… was that backstage or in front of the stage? Regardless, they were just close friends. All 350,000 of them. About 1 ½ hours east of Los Angeles you can get your heart rate up to 300 and survive it. Especially if there are girls watching and you’re wearing assless pants which I did in front of every single one of those audience members. (I don’t think of the audience as one cluster. I think of you each as an individual. This bun’s for you….) I think gamers are athletes in that they benefit from all of the cross training ideas that apply to Venus and Serena or the LA Rams, the Patriots and gymnasts. Virtually everything that they do is similar starting with kitchen skills (coaching, physical training and time management). If you’re competing for money or sponsorship (and that’s the same thing), if you want to make your living at it (and every surfer does) you must train. Uh, oh… did I just dovetail three ideas? You can handle it…
Gaming started the way surfing did. Surfing was something simply considered a game, a toy like a saxophone. When Adolphe Sax invented the saxophone, it was considered a noise-making toy that was more appropriate for political rallies and children’s birthday parties. I’m going to go artisanal on yo ass– now the saxophone is about as drenched in BBQ sauce as you could possibly imagine. The saxophone impacted irrevocably and inestimably the face of modern international culture and music forever until the last syllable of time. I think the first surfboard idea came about when a tree actually fell into the river and one of my first cousins clung to it, calling it a sport. Much later in my family tree, we bought a Jeep and I’m up to 2 mph. Is a jeep moving 2 mph almost dead vertically a sport? Watch out we’re going Buddhist here way before happy hour. There are no answers, just a lot of questions. Is it the salt or the french fry? Is it the blue cheese or the salad? We don’t know. The answer persists. I think the computer is vastly more complex than the surfboard in it’s simple construct. You can dedicate your entire life to elements of Call of Duty® because it’s going to change just like the surfboard has. Have you seen Laird Hamilton’s hydrofoil board? It sits above the water the way the sailboats in San Francisco do. It’s going to change from that as soon as they figure out how to make surfboards out of a little tissue paper and some spit to reduce the weight even more. You’ll be able to wear it around your neck when you go home. They will be doing 90 and have to wear helmets with heli-tethers. Initially there will be some back injuries but there are plenty of surfers.
Many friends would equate sports with extreme physical activity. I don’t know that that’s absolutely implied in its definition. Playing ping pong involves many tiny kung fu style movements. It’s more like dicing carrots… in a very small boat… in heavy weather. Compared to the discus throw which takes up the whole dance floor. In golf you have the big swing but where do you usually lose the game? The putt. In a world that is increasingly crowded and condensed, the smaller movement sports and art forms are going to take precedence because there is less room to practice the hammer throw.
