I just can't eat like I could when I was younger. And thinner. Which is weird, I swear I could eat three times as much in one sitting back in the day. But I am putting off breakfast this morning because I am still full from last night's plate. But my ears always wake up hungry. Hard to believe this is 40 years old (it was released February 1978 but recorded late August - September 1977). Though it's easy to understand how it sold over 10,000,000 copies. I mean, this sucker RAWKS!!! \m/\m/ And has some of the most influential guitar-playing since Hendrix. Van Halen - Van Halen

40 years? Eddie must be rocking in a rocking chair.

Still ticks me off that my Mom got to see Van Halen (with Sammy) and I had to work that night. I haven't caught them with or without him.

@JolietJake — I must say I think it’s cool your mom went to rock concerts. My mom would listen to some rock songs (no accounting for what she liked: from “The Rhythm of My Heart” by Rod Stewart to “Tell Him” by Linda Ronstadt to “Johnny Can’t Read” by Don Henley), but I could only get her to bluegrass concerts.

I need to eat something to take that new medicine this morning before the gym. Don't feel like almost passing out again.

@JolietJake I feel that way about pumpkin pie. Unfortunately we didn't bring any home with us.

Yep, Eddie took a jazz concept (tapping) and really took off with it

I wish Eddie had replaced Dave Davies, then I could enjoy his guitar work without Diamond Dave’s poor impersonation of Ian Gillian “Highway Star” scream. Plus, the Kinks wouldn’t have been on eggshells every night. (The night I saw them Ray and Dave weren’t fighting, just staying on their respective sides of the stage.)
