I've had the first Van Halen album on in my car the past couple of days, can't stop looping it. I'm hearing things that washed over me before. Man, he was innovative.

This is just one of many many things that I enjoyed but didn't appreciate back when it came out, just listen to the lick at 00:19, I've only just noticed that it is similar to a lot of stuff Mr Vai does. The album came out in 1978, it blew me away but I'm appreciating now, more than ever, maybe it's because I now know how much of a mountain guitar playing is to climb smile.gif

Another one for me is, once I learned every song on this album and I crap my drawers thinking he wrote this in 81

Truly a killer album and a watershed even in Guitar as is Diary of a Mad man, two of the greatest guitar Gods ever at their prime. This kind of work remains vital, even decades after it was made. So much of what came after is a bit derivative of these seminal works. I'd lump Number of the Beast in there as well. Also Ride the Lightning and Master of Puppets. These works are so important because of how much influence they had over nearly everything with a guitar that came after.
