Van Halen Cracks the Top Ten...

vhalen200It's the Top Ten from here on in...  Van Halen's first album, which set new standards for guitar playing, is one of the most successful debuts by a hard rock band.  At least half the songs on it are still considered classics, and it comes in at Number 10 in the Eagle's Greatest Classic Rock Albums of All Time, brought to you by D.R. Horton, America's builder.  Your comments welcome..  Catch a replay of the Van Halen story tonight at 8, or listen On Demand at Eagle969.com.

I am glad to see that I am not alone in my thinking that this belongs in the Top Ten. Having lived through the era when this was popular, I remember the reaction to Eddie's amazing new sound. Everyone I knew went out and bought a guitar and taped and painted it to be like Eddie. He sounded like no one else and this album changed the sound of rock and roll forever.
