    At what point does the countdown begin? I have listened to it and haven't noticed it.

    Happy trails countdown

    Yes, it is right before the last "happy trails" verse is sung. You hear somebody say 2, 3. This, and somebody laughing(not sure who it is), is why I like this song. It is not perfect nor well rehersed, which makes it a VH classic.

    The counting stuff is quite normal while bands are recording.
    Did you ever noticed the drum stick count that Alex Van Halen does in the end of "Atomic Punk"? And the "1,2,3,4" Alex also does on "SGMAD", right after the claping hands thing?
    To me, those stuffs show how spontaneous were the recording session of some of the CVH albuns.
