van halen concert t shirts - 1984



Japanese pressing. Reissue of1984 original release has been remastered and comes in a standard jewel case. Warner. 2005.

1984 was a successful record not only because it contained solid, catchy hard rock, but also because it incorporated synthesizers into the mix, the first metal album to do so to any serious extent. Although the advances in electronic music make this material sound dated now, it's still a highlight of Van Halen's career. Songs like "Jump" contain a pop element that gave 1984 mainstream appeal, and David Lee Roth turned the frontman role into an art form on songs such as "Panama," "Hot for Teacher," "Drop Dead Legs," and "I'll Wait." To a large extent, it was 1984 that set the standard for '80s pop metal, and David Lee Roth who set the standard (or takes the blame, depending on your point of view) for the aggressively good-time attitude most pop-metal bands took for their own. --Genevieve Williams

“Dad, I want to play the violin”.

“Dad, I want to play the violin”.

52 Stories.

I never paid much attention to them. They weren’t played in the type of music that I listened to. Skynyrd, Allman Bros and Floyd didn’t have ‘em. Bad Company, Aerosmith, Journey, Eagles, - nope. Van Halen or Hagar? In your dreams.
Charlie Daniels played a fiddle. Is that the same thing?

Well, she wanted one. What’s the difference between a fiddle and a violin? About $400.
They sold purple ones at the pawnshop in Denton. But she scoffed and said those were fiddles. Couldn’t have purple in the Orchestra.


Uh-oh… Monkey suits and stuffed shirts. Funny glasses and fat ladys. Sit down and be quiet. Down In FRONT!!!
I’m not the demographic they’re looking for. A bit more noise in Texas Stadium when the Floyd was on stage.

She had been told you could rent one from a fellow outside town. He repaired them.
And rent them he did. But it wasn’t outrageous so we got one.

Now my grandfather and Uncle Raymond used to play the fiddle on the radio as a duo. And some of you youngsters may not know that before music was recorded commercially people played live on the radio. To play records was thought of as cheap.
Uncle Raymond used to have a shop in downtown Grapevine where he built and repaired fiddles. He repaired watches too. A real Craftsman. It was in one of the old buildings on Main Street that were constructed shotgun style. My grandmother used to take us to visit when we were real young. It was always a treat. And those old men could play the fiddle.

But the 3rd graders at McNair Elementary were just learning. Ok, we didn’t expect much. Learn a couple of chords and saw like a woodsman. Hour after hour. I could hear her in her room making some awful noise. ErrrAwwww, ErrrrrrrAwww, ErrrrrrrrrAwwwww. And every so often she would appear with a smile and let you hear it up close.
“That’s nice, honey.” Torture. Bin Laden should have it so good.

And once a month, we all trudged up to the school to sit on the ‘itsy bitsy chairs in the lunchroom and listen to the concert. Grade by grade.

They were bad at first. They were baaaad. But we all smiled and clapped like a bunch of seal and told them how great they were. I’m sure they knew we were liars. We all were. None in the crowd dared look each other in the eye.

Then as the years progressed it got worse. I know some of you don’t believe that. You’re the ones who have little ones just starting.
Year after year, Carmen’s group got better. But every year they would move to the next grade and a fresh batch of 3rd graders would get started sawing. Yeah they did. And the program always started with the 3rd graders. By the time they were in the 8th grade, they could play some tunes. It really was a treat. But everyone was held captive by the program that always started with the youngsters. You had to wait through all the lower grades first.
I used to tell the teachers it would be more entertaining for the crowd if they started at the other end. You could get some laughs that way. Start with the good ones and progress down. That way everyone could hear the good ones and as they got progressively younger and less experienced it would invariably lead to some laughs.
Oh, I hear you. You think I’m being cruel. Well, just you wait until you have been tortured by years of listening to 3rd and 4th grade practice.

Eventually though, Carmen became very good. To the point that she was elected Orchestra President and first chair violin her junior and senior year.

Along the way, the old violin was upgraded a couple of times as her hands became larger. And the old man who rented the violins always produced a very sweet sounding instrument that got better with age.

Carmen played this old violin at the wedding of her cousin and at the funerals of both her grandfather Don and her Uncle Chris Banks. And I have never, ever heard as beautiful a sound as when she played Amazing Grace in the rain at Don’s funeral.

In hindsight, it was worth all the hours, and the thousands of dollars in rental fees just for that one song played those two times.

Fortunately, she was past the 3rd grade.

Concert Tee. It makes me look cool.

Concert Tee. It makes me look cool.

I'm trying to demonstrate to the world my casual approach. My casual devil-may-care attitude. This Van Halen shirt, hopefully, exemplifies that attitude wonderfully.
By displaying the name and logo of my favorite entertainment products on my body, I hope to gain association with that mileu--and hopefully be called 'cool' or maybe even 'rad.'. It is my hope that when you think of Van Halen and all the wildness they embody--you will also think of me. Hence the decal on my clothing.
I'm considering getting logos on all my clothing--both those advertising the manufacturer of the clothing, and those that send signals about who I am, and my attitude toward things. Rather than say, Hellman's Mayonnaise, or Glade Air Freshener--I will opt for products that have some sort of edgy, transgressive air to them. Skateboard products, rock musical groups, and alcoholic drinks--those things will show to the world how much I have not sold out. I still have allegiance to those products!

Best of Van Halen, Vol. 1

Japanese pressing of Van Halen's single disc Best Of Vol. 1 (originally released in 1996) featuring one bonus track: 'Hot For Teacher'. This was the compilation that essentially brought Van Halen to a close when the band drafted in original vocalist David Lee Roth to record two new tracks. This reunion was short-lived but it was enough to anger then-current vocalist Sammy Hagar into leaving the band. Hagar did tour with the band in 2004, but they've never recovered from the firestorm that this release sparked! 18 tracks. Warner. 2007.

It took over 20 years for Van Halen to release a Best of album, and even then, the band downplayed the effort. Instead sticking to the original plan of releasing a two-disc set--one of material with original frontman David Lee Roth, and the other with his 11-year replacement Sammy Hagar--the band opted for a single CD chronicling their entire career. For the previously uninitiated, it's a golden introduction to a band that changed the face of '80s hard rock. Guitar-blazing old tracks like "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love," and "Dance the Night Away" segue into more commercial numbers like "Jump" and "Panama" from 1984. These in turn, set the stage for Hagar's slicker, more polished vocals on "Right Now" and "How Do I Know When It's Love." But while newcomers will be thrilled with the delights within, old fans will probably find little of use, since the two highly touted new tracks with Roth are pretty disposable. --Jon Wiederhorn
