How I Feel About the Van Halen Reunion Tour

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Tue, Jan 3, 2012 at 9:23 AM

Look, I know it's hard for bands to hang onto their glory days. But for the life of me, I don't know why anyone would want to subject themselves to this. Have you seen this video of Van Halen ruining "Jump" at the Greensboro stop on their 2007 tour? Maybe you need a reminder—take a listen. It is the WORST thing you will ever see and hear.

The painfully out-of-tune guitar and backing track are only part of the problem. Take a look at the four-minute mark and tell me what David Lee Roth is doing. Seriously. What is David Lee Roth doing??

Agh. This makes me miss Gary Cherone. And don't get me started on poor Michael Anthony.
