Surf's Up! Wow!! I've seen Van Halen with Sammy 6 times now and I have to say, this show topped them all. The guys really seemed to be having a ball on stage. Sammy is singing better than ever, Alex and Mikey are as still as amazing as ever, and Eddie is still the best guitar player on the planet. I almost cried when I heard the unmistakable sound of Eddie Van Halen in nearly 7 years. The guys were jumping, running, and dancing non-stop like they were still teenagers. Having said that, they all look great too. Every song was amazing. I really like the new one "Up For Breakfast"!. Sounds great live! Sammy sounded so good on "Unchained". I'd like to hear him sing more Dave songs that he hasn't sung before because he sure sings Dave songs much better than Dave ever did. "Eagles Fly" and "Deeper Kind of Love" were amazing! Sammy, Hartford loves you! Eddie's solo was jaw-dropping. This show reminded me of what great rock and roll is all about. Here's to VH kickin' ass in 2004! Thank God they're back!
