frankm: I know that was kindda a funny comment but Waiting for the Punchline had Hip Today and Midnight Express which were popular but I preferred No Respect

Frank, I think Punchline is a great album. I’m not a big Extreme fan but that album just really grabs me.

It would have been even better if they included their cover of VH’s “Mean Street.”

Yes wonder if it was copyright reasons?

Nuno Bettencourt
“Around 1991 Dweezil Zappa invited me along to a rehearsal studio,” Nuno said. “He didn’t tell me where we were going. I walked into a rehearsal space, the doors opened and there was Van Halen rehearsing. When they stopped the song Eddie came over and gave me a big hug and a kiss. First time a guy had kissed my lips in a while. But he was so welcoming, for a guy who was one of my major influences. He was so open. And after they finished rehearsal he was like, ‘You want to play my rig?’ And the whole time I was watching him play I was thinking ‘There it is! There’s that tone, right in front of me! If I could only play that rig on my own…’ And then it came through! But there’s one thing that really sucks, that I was really disappointed about. The whole time I was thinking “I can’t wait to play this rig because I want to sound like Eddie.” I wanted for years to be able to sound like him. And I had his guitar going into his amp and pedals and everything, and when I started playing I was so disappointed: it still sounded like me. I was like ‘What the [expletive]?’ And I learned pretty quickly that day that it doesn’t make a difference. Yeah, it makes a difference sort of, but you will always sound like you, no matter what. You could add a different colour, a different pickup, but your DNA is going to come out as you. I had Eddie Van Halen’s rig, all of it right in front of me, the dream rig, and I still sounded like me, unfortunately.”

I’d like to see Gary throw down Without You either with Extreme or Sammy when they perform together. I think it would be cool to witness. Maybe have Gary come out with Sammy and sing a Hagar era tune then a Cherone era tune together. What are the odds of that happening though? :)

Happened back in 2003, so there’s a fair chance it’d happen again.

Might happen.
Gary sang Rock n Roll with Sammy and band footage in Long Road to Cabo.

I knew about the two performances mentioned, that’s why I thought maybe it could happen. Outside of Gary singing Once with Tribe of Judah, I don’t believe he’s sang any of the other VHIII songs live. I would like to hear Nuno’s take on some of that stuff!
