    [–] Bruce Lee - Ace of Spades tomhagen 2 points ago in Motorhead

    A fight is gamble with your health, your life if you bump into the wrong person. The "ace of spades" is the knockout/win. POV adds humor or insight. Look at Bruce's size in that regard; He could fight an amateur or someone with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's size and reach. Deadly for a small man. Perhaps a cold-blooded killer, 30 men at the same time, etc.

    [–] Tattoo - Song Discussion tomhagen 2 points ago in vanhalen

    Music is great, as is melody. Dave's lyrics, however...

    Mouse-wife to Mom-shell in the time it took to get that new tattoo...

    All the odds were against them. Not only did they deliver, they honored Bon's memory in becoming bigger than any rock band had before them.

    [–] Wolfgang Van Halen: "I'm Not Trying To Be My Father, I'm Trying To Be Me" tomhagen 2 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago) in vanhalen

    Here he's playing drums with Alter Bridge live:

    He's on bass with Tremonti here:

    He's playing drums (and maybe bass) on this track:

    And I was wrong about Sevendust. He's playing with Clint (Sevendust's guitarist) on the above tune, "God Bless the Renegades."

    Spot on. Wolf has made smart moves. The dude is almost 30 years old, so it's not like he's a newbie. He obviously played in Van Halen, but he's also done work with Alterbridge, Sevendust, etc. He's got studio chops, he's been on the road. By the time his dad was his age, he had already recorded 1984. He's got the VH genes and is seasoned. It may be his first album, but he's basically a seasoned pro. I think that was the plan all along, to get him real world experience and then step out on his own. Personally, I'm looking forward to it.
