Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Reach Down, Between My Seat

There’s an adorable part of this picture, Enthusiasts, I swear. It’s not the platform clodhoppers, and it is not the always vaguely-Satanic Alex, and it certainly isn’t the pistols lying around for no good reason. (Seriously: those little tables are made of lacquered pressboard; they’re slippery, and so if the bus brakes suddenly, then now you have flying guns. Flying guns do no one any good, Van Halen. Holster those weapons.)

See it yet? It’s cute, I promise.

See it?

Right before the picture, David Lee Roth made fun of Michael Anthony for drinking a soda, and told him to drink a beer like a Rock Star, and so Michael Anthony put his Pepsi under the seat and popped open a Colt 45. Told you: adorable.

    a visual delight. short ass Colt 45s in Europe? a Revel Baron Von Richthofen Fokker?

    man being on the bus with those guys must’ve been excruciating…..but fun for the first day at least.
