Button down shirt and non pleated khakis? What's wrong wth that?

It's not just the khakis it the color of the shirt. If he sits at the table with Urban tomorrow night and has those colors on he's going to be sent back to the dressing room to put some scarlet on. Non negotiable! 

I am surprised that none of them are rockin any Buckeye colors.

I say the Bengals should trade Dallas A.J McCarron and Jeremy Hill (dump low value SEC scum) and trade 1st and 4th round picks. Take Zeke at #4 and pick up 12 gauge in the 4th to sit behind the Red Rocket for a couple of years.  #12 to #15 combo.....you know the rest of the story!

Unload some of the SEC and add some Buckeye B1G talent.

Marion man this is Vandalia man with some advice.

When you do your hotel search for Vandalia check the 3 star box and you can stay at some of our best upscale dives, if you just check the 1 and 2 star box you'll end up at the Red Roof with the other 5 meth head that just booked it for May 1-2 in the last 48 hours.

Or you can contact me, our guest room in on the other side of the house so you won't have to "dash the rhythmic headboard slapping from your skull"

I believe a song is want you want it to be and you should make it you own. With that said there are many covers that I don't  care for but that doesn't make them bad. I also believe the original artist that writes the music and performs it has the advantage as it has been written from their soul. However my favorite version of Lynyrd Skynyrd's Simple Man is remake by Shinedown, they took it, made it their own with a lot more heart and soul IMHO. I like the "rock" version a little better than this one but this one is really, really good.

Also Gov't Mule put out an interesting album/CD in 2013 called Shout. It's a two disc CD that has Warren Haynes doing the songs he wrote then on the second CD he has some of his favorite artist each do one of the songs. Again IMHO none of the artist raise beyond the level of the original. I think this was a bold move by Warren to let someone else do your music before the public has time to digest the original material.  http://mule.net/albums/shout/

Can't say I've ever heard of Aaron Lewis and as a first time listener his vocals kinda of remind me of Rob Thomas of Match Box 20. I'm going to dig in and learn more. Thanks for the post!

If your choice in a second wife isn't hotter than your first wife it's you're problem.... but I wouldn't know, I've been married to the same hot wife for 38 years. My math might be bad because she keeps telling me she's only 29. With a son 30 this is getting harder to explain!

Like I said in my original post and I truly believe Sammy was good for Van Halen but Van Halen was better for Sammy he's never had a #1 album with out him. 

With that I'll leave you with an original video I shot at the Park West in Chicago at Chickenfoots Road Trip show one of their test shows before they went on their first tour.....shot on a Sony Cyber Shot camera....Dug it out of the archive from my You Tube CABOWABO channel and brought back some great memories. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

as long as you don't mind being wrong and getting mocked

No it's just like another day at the office for me! :-)

Thank you for the Fair Warning but There's Only One Way To Rock! Family &The Ohio State Buckeyes are the only thing I love more than music. I stumbled across the thread today and will now be a regular.

Coop didn't you have that thread or something like it for awhile? 

Comment 12 Apr 2016

Well we can agree to disagree on Sammy vs. DLR but 200 comments on this thread is impressive. I wasn't sure there would be this much interest on an Ohio State site and I've really enjoyed participating!

Long Live The Red Rocker and Van Hagar!

Comment 12 Apr 2016

Truth be told, there are a few Van Hagar songs that I like.

Maybe after a little truth serum (Cabo Wabo or Sammy Beach Bar Rum) we’ll get you to come around a little more?
