Indeed, Van Halen was hell influential...

It is my favourite hard-rock band, together with Whitesnake.

Skid Row comes as a close second place =]

Heh. Skid Row. You know, I wouldn't know half of this - strike that, I wouldn't know any of this - if my brother wasn't heavily into this. Because of him, I recognise that band name Skid Row. Their singer Sabastian Bach is now in the band opening for Guns 'n' Roses on the current tour - my brother will be seeing it in a few weeks. In my brother's opinon, Sebastian Bach is one of the best vocalists ever.

Sebastian Bach is Axl Roses cocksucker.

He is. Together with Dickinson and Kursch.

BTW, people who like Iron Maiden, and haven't already done it, should search for Bach's cover of Children of the Damned. I once thought it to be even better than the original.  :lee:

During a run of the show in San Francisco, Bach portrayed the Phantom of the Opera. That takes some doing. That and "18 and Life" and "I Remember You" demand singing along whenever they come on the radio. Good stuff.
