@"Dinosaur David B" I love Van Hagar as well, some great tunes in that era, not only the hit ballads. Didn't know about Templeman's book, will check it out.I've read Van Halen Rising which I think someone recommend here in DRG

Ted said in Rolling stone that Ed could barely speak English when they first met, kind of a theme there. Angus and Malcolm outsiders in Sydney with their Scottish accents and celtic roots. Yngwie arriving in California 1983, definitely a spur.

I think DLR's career just officially ended.
Eddie was the secret sauce. No amount of mayo, mustard, ketchup, etc. will marginally replace him.
