    One of their best cover tune ever recorded!

    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

    I used to skip a lot more tunes when I was younger. These are the tunes I skip from not liking them, not from them being overplayed.

    VH1: Little Dreamer and Feel Your Love Tonight (I don't know, it's a catchy tune and I love the bridge part where the main riff is played with the low E chugging, but it's weak compared to the rest of their stuff)
    VH2: Nothing
    WACF: Nothing
    FW: Nothing (used to skip Push Comes to Shove). Actually, I sometimes skip "So This Is Love?"
    DD: Pretty Woman
    1984: Nothing really, though I was never a big fan of "Drop Dead Legs"
    ADKOT: Sometimes Tattoo and Trouble With Never, HBSD and Stay Frosty are skipped almost every time (I know that's going to piss off a lot of people)

    I can picture Roth being a complete joke when he was taking those classes at Pasadena CC.
    Little Dreamer is just very flat on the album, especially when compared to how they played it live on the DD tour. When Ed uses the flanger on the main riff live, then the song really comes to life. The album version probably has Alex's laziest least interesting studio performance of his career, and everybody knows how much I love Alex...

    I am a bit surprised to see Big River come up as a skip for a couple people.

    NO. Little Dreamer is NOT autobiographical. The lyrics couldn't be any more clear. ROTH is not a Joke, your post is a JOKE.

    "So This is Love" is a song I skip sometimes as well, like it, but songs about love irk me sometimes. (I'm an evil spirit )

    I don't always skip Big River, but when I do I just don't want to listen to it.


    I feel if it was still Big Trouble I'd not skip it. "River"...kinda...not sure.

    I don't hate it, I just feel like skipping it from time to time. Big difference, sir.
    Ready, Eddie!

    Being a small town country boy, I like a song about a river.

    But seriously, Big Trouble was my favorite of the unreleased WB demos, but I like Big River much more.
