Tag Archives: Van Halen 1981

Van Halen by Derek: February 5 1981!

“I think of all the education that I missed
But then, my homework was never quite like this!”

I came across this piece of school work tucked away in a scrapbook of many concert reviews over the years! I wrote this back in  Februrary/1981 when I was in Grade 8!

Now, if you have been following this blog for any amount of time you all know how much of gamechanger of Van Halen’s Woman & Children First was in my world when I purchased it back in January/81!

Less than a month later I composed this quick little writeup which is hilarious as I had no idea how much partying VH did which I guess I should have picked up on especially since I cut and pasted that top picture of there rehearsal studio that looks like the ultimate party shack! Is that a great shot or what…!

So here it is in my own word’s a quick little history of Van Halen.



Seriously I think this is the best thing I have ever written!
