Should we make a foolhardy attempt at an EVH tribute cover fight?! Maybe if we each tackle 1-2 measures and spend a month listening at 1/10th speed we could do a collective cover of Eruption? :lol:

I would be willing to do that or a more conventional coverfight. Either one.

Wow. Like'm or not, Van Halen was a massive game changer of his time and for a long time. Underneath the pyrotechnics of his playing is some nice phrasing, some very good songs, and some seriously gnarly guitar tones. RIP.

I enjoyed this person's look at some of EVH's playing, from the original David Lee Roth era.

Johnny Nash.
I totally missed this. I Can See Clearly was such an iconic song of the times. Fabulous voice.

Actor Sir Sean Connery, of many films, possibly most notably the old school James Bond films, has passed away at 90:

https://www.rollingstone.com/movies/mov ... t-1084336/

This is something I did not know, which is pretty wild:
Connery was cast in the role of Bond thanks to the actor’s “animal magnetism,” Bond producers told Rolling Stone in 1983. The choice was a surprise as, years earlier, the actor had been forced out of Hollywood following a threatening phone call from mob boss Mickey Cohn, who blamed the actor in part for the death of gangster Johnny Stompanato, who was stabbed to death by the daughter of Lana Turner; that actress had handpicked Connery to be her love interest in 1958’s Another Place, Another Time. Leaving Hollywood in the midst of a Twentieth Century Fox deal, Connery reestablished himself in British cinema before landing the Dr. No gig.
Anyway, he was my favorite Bond. A year or two ago we went and saw "Thunderball" in an old art deco theater in Oakland, and it was awesome. That movie is bananas, there are so many outlandish things in it, particularly the finale was is a massive underwater battle between two small armies of frog men.
