    i loved Skid Row !!!!
    the first 2 albums were great , IMO .

    Bach was a super frontman , Sabo and Scotti kicked ass on guitar and the songs were mostly good 80's stuff.

    i saw them 3 times live . once with G'NR , once with Aerosmith , and once on their own at the old RPM club in Toronto .although i had lost interest in them after the 3rd album ? the really heavy one ...can't remember the name of it , but i recall hating it and giving it away to an ex singer of mine

    I get all of mine at Guitars101!

    So, i'm an idiot...

    Turns out that Ohio show was from 1984!!
    No wonder they sound JUST LIKE THE RECORD (it had just come out).
    And that second guitarist is Robbin Crosby (duh).

    I have no idea why i thought it was '97, i must have mixed up my bootleg dates, as i downloaded several that day.
    And now the blowjob story sounds more in line with the times.

    You'd think the setlist (all Cellar & E.P.) would have tipped me off!

    You mean Subhuman Race? Nice record, underated one. Not their best, but not their worst effort either. Didn't they opened for Van hagar during part of the 1995 Ambulance tour?
    Wolfgang Van Halen - "I love being a bass player. Its just me and Al a groove section. Just boom, boom, boom, and were good". GW

    Edward Van Halen - "What is next for Wolf is the next record and the next tour. Hes no different than I am. Music is his life. If he goes back to school, Ill probably go with him. GC

    thanks Simon !
    yeah Subhuman Race was the title i'd forgotten . i didn't care for it too much . glad you liked it though ..

    i didn't see the 1995 VH tour , but i'm pretty sure Skid Row did open for VH on at least 1 leg of that one ?

    No doubt back then Van Halen was on their covers more then most. Shit, they even released a Van Halen only editions.

    Looking at todays rock. I can only be thankful that I grew up when I did.

    You know that best selling albums of 2010 thread. Think about who would be on that list in 1979? 1980? 1981? 1982? 1983? IMO, 1979-1983 was the GOLDEN AGE of hard rock.
    ah so true. I've often said we were so lucky to grow up when we did for rock n roll. If you're 35+ you got to see some incredible music. When albums meant something. You'd sit and study those mags for van halen interviews and pics. Study the albums and liner notes. hope to catch some VH video on TV. Of course they were a mainstay on MTV...

    Well, you certainly have the right idea. I cannot fault you. However, you'll probably be met with Ed's denial that such show doesn't exist when it really does. They filmed three nights as it's been reported by fans who were in attendance. For Ed to not give us this, nor any explanation, is unaccapetable.
