Music today is the other two Van Halen records which for some reason I didn’t play in chronological order – Women And Children First (1980) and 1984 (1984). These are the last two albums before the Sammy Hagar era and it only took Why Can’t This Be Love to lose them for me from here on. I guess their audience didn’t lose them though and although the brilliance of David Lee Roth’s showmanship was there for all to see and although he seemed irreplaceable, it was Eddie Van Halen’s spectacular guitar playing that was the crucial element in the band and they could have got Daffy Duck as the lead singer and the fans would have been there to hear Eddie play that magical guitar.
