Cool Fear Factory

From the Demanufacture album:

Self Bias Resistor

Hey you! Wake up!
Open your swollen eyes
Erosion invades you mind
A cancer that grows over time

Hey you! Rise up!
Rise to fight, eliminate
Burn your fuse to detonate
The human machines of hate

[Chorus:]
All these years they've tried to break you
To your knees
Anger scours right through your veins

Now it's time to put an end
To all the lies
Now it's time to take control
Of your life

Wake up! Rise up!
Open minds will dominate
Burn your fuse to detonate
The human machines of hate

[Repeat chorus]

Hypocrisy
You can't believe
Machines of hate
A disease that infiltrates

Persist for resisance
Resist their insolence
You are a dissident
Burn away conformity [X2]

[Repeat chorus]

They have tried to break you
They have tried to break you [X2]

Red face The end of Van Hagar: VAN HALEN DROPS SAMMY!!!!

Back on the other side of the rock and roll field, music fans were shocked when it was announced that Sammy Hagar was no longer in Van Halen!!! The debacle revolved around such instances as the release of a track for the upcoming disaster movie 'Twister' where the band was asked to contribute a song. The band was under specific guidelines as to what the song lyrics should be about ("don't write about tornados!" they were told. ) So as they finagled about writing the lyrics, Hagar was increasing frustrated and disgusted about the insipidness of Eddie's songwriting process. They even brought in veteran songwriter Russ Ballard to assist with the lyrics for the upcoming VH album, but all that came of that was utter chaos. Hagar was thoroughly displeased with Eddie's lyrics after having to sing a juvenile number such as "Amsterdam" from the previous album. Even Russ Ballard was not impressed with the proceedings. It increasingly appeared that Eddie was no longer his usual happy-go-lucky self, he became increasingly irritable and a virtual control freak, according to Hagar, Eddie was having major problems with writing decent lyrics. The possible reason for this problem was something that would shock everyone, as we shall see later.

But the real clencher came when Van Halen decided to put out a Best-Of album, with one half David Lee Roth hits and the other ones with Sammy. Hagar was not at all impressed with this idea, as he was a sworn foe of the lead singer he had replaced. Why would anyone want to compare the two singers on the album? Meanwhile, Sammy released another solo album for his other record label, which Eddy and Alex interpreted as Sammy "jumping ship" from the group. But in fact, Sammy explains, the album was only a contractual-obligation album which was recorded to pay off his ex-wife in a messy divorce. Sammy was not intending to leave Van Halen, but what then happened next made him think otherwise...

Red face Best of Van Halen Vol. 1

It came to a point where relations between Sammy Hagar and the Van Halen brothers was at an all time low. Sammy tried to assure them that they could
work out all their differences, and as a bit of pep talk, said, "We're going to become the biggest thing out there!" Alex snapped back defensively, "Oh, so
it's all about making money now? You're just trying to get rich?" After talking him down, the band went their separate ways for a few days. After a while Sammy would tend to more domestic matters, such as his new pregnant wife who had delivered a baby through a very difficult breach birth.
On Father's Day, Eddy called and left a message, urging Sammy to pick up. The Best-Of album was being recorded with a new vocalist. Sammy was upset, and Eddy told him he was just frustrated with Sammy's uncooperativeness. After assuring Sammy he would do anything for him as a friend, he then dropped the bombshell: The new vocalist they had working on two new songs for the Best-Of album was:

DAVID LEE ROTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sammy was absolutely shocked, horrified, and LIVID!!!!! He told Eddy, "To go behind my back and do this--F you!!! I can do better than either of you!!" Eddy replied, "I dunno, some of the stuff is pretty good..." Upon hearing that DAVID LEE ROTH was back in the picture, Sammy's wife, recovering from labor, sat up in bed, obviously shaken with disbelief. What sort of wacked-out "friend" was Eddy Van Halen to do something like this??

So Sammy and Eddy parted ways, what had begun as a great new lease on life for both men and a great American band had deteriorated into another bizarre, pathetic, and tragic breakdown where friendships, careers, and even credibility were all laid to waste in a pointless act of lack of communication and trust. Much would be laid at the feet of Sammy Hagar in a problem Eddy Van Halen called "L.S.D.--Lead Singer Disease", but soon fans would be guessing as to who really had the problem...

Best Of Van Halen Vol. 1 was released later that year, with two new tracks featuring David Lee Roth, the hit "Me Wise Magic", and "Can't Get This Stuff No More".

The album featured the following tracks:

1. Eruption
2. Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love
3. Runnin' With The Devil
4. Dance The Night Away
5. And The Cradle Will Rock
6. Unchained
7. Jump
8. Panama
9. Why Can't This Be Love
10. Dreams
11. When It's Love
12. Poundcake
13. Right Now
14. Can't Stop Lovin' You
15. Humans Being
16. Can't Get This Stuff No More
17. Me Wise Magic


Me Wise Magic

I know what you're thinkin'
What you're thinkin' is easy to see
I know what you're dreamin'
I have those same dreams

Wow!
Reach up to the feet of God
Lookin' for a sign
It was right here all the time, time, time, time!

I am you and you are me

Cool 'Twister'

The disaster movie 'Twister', starring Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton, featured the hit by Van Halen, "Humans Being":

Humans Being

There is just enough Christ in me
To make me feel almost guilty
Is that why God made us bleed
To make us see we're Humans Being?

You break this, I'll break all that
You break my balls with all your crap
Spread your disease like lemmings breeding
That's what makes us Humans Being

Shine on, shine on
Shine on, shine on

(Guitar Solo)

Yeah! Some low life flat head scum infects
The sickness in his eyes reflects
You wonder why your life is screaming
Wonder why we're Humans Being

Shine on, shine on
Shine on, shine on

(Guitar Solo)

Humans, Humans Being
We're just Humans (That's what makes us)
Humans Being (That's what makes us)
We're just humans (That's what makes us)
Humans Being (That's what makes us) We're just humans (That's what makes us)
Humans Being (That's what makes us)
Humans Being!
We're just humans (That's what makes us)
Humans Being (That's what makes us)
Humans Being!

Default Sammy Hagar--Unboxed

Here is the solo album by Sammy Hagar which made Eddie and Co. think he was planning to quit the band. Unboxed is basically a best-of album featuring past material by the Little Red Rocker, plus one new song that got much airplay, "High Hopes" (which was not necessarily what people thought it was about, as Sammy said. Not necessarily. ).

Another factor contributing to Sammy Hagar's departure from Van Halen was that he did not want to do any more new songs until Eddy had undergone hip replacement surgery, and Alex did something with his back problems. The two brothers had serious medical issues which required immediate attention. Eddy's hip replacement would soon be the least of his medical worries.

High Hopes

Another dream, goes up in smoke
HUH!
And so, fire me up, another toke
Yeah, I'm commin' on
I've got master plans, by the dozens
A-flashin' thru my brain, when I get buzzin'
Suddenly, there gone
Ohhh, the inspiration, runnin' thru your head
Instant stimulation
Oh, your runnin' on

You got........
HIGH HOPES
And they're up in smoke
Up all night, tweakin' every detail
The way I've got it, this could never fail
HEY! This could be the big one
HIGH HOPES
Come and go, so high
But commin' down, fade away and die
HIGH HOPES
I got them, more than a dream
They all get wasted
(Yeah)
Ohhh, the inspiration, runnin' thru your head
Instant stimulation
Your runnin' on
OH!

You got..............HIGH HOPES
Your livin' on
HIGH HOPES
(WHOO!)
HIGH HOPES
Oh yeah
But they're wasted
Hey

{guitar solo**
(Watch it)
(Now listen)
All that talk, is gettin' nuthin' done
Ain't it hard to move, when your body's numb
Put it off..... another day

HIGH HOPES
Come and goin' so high
And commin' down, fade away and die
HIGH HOPES
They're nuthin' more than a dream
They all get wasted (yeah)
Ohhh, the inspiration, runnin' thru your head
Instant stimulation
They're givin' you
OH!............

You got
Well Oh,
HIGH HOPES
Your livin' on
HIGH HOPES
You got
HIGH HOPES
HIGH HOPES
HIGH HOPES
Keep livin' on
HIGH HOPES
HIGH HOPES

Red face David Lee Roth back in Van Halen??

Fans of the classic Van Halen lineup rejoiced at the new songs with Diamond Dave--could it be true?? Was Van Halen finally going to be getting back together with David Lee Roth?? Was the whole Van Hagar fiasco just a horrible, horrible dream??

At the MTV Music Video Awards, the world would find out:

When all four reunited members of Van Halen assembled onstage, the applause was uproarious--and Dave loved every minute of it. "It's been ten years since I've been on stage with these guys!" he exulted. From there, all attention was focused on Diamond Dave, Van Halen's most extroverted member, as he hogged the spotlight, hamming it up and wallowing in the fanfare. The other members felt, yep, same old Dave. It was very awkward to have to deal with his clowning antics, especially when the band had some news for him..."Uhh, Dave? Excuse me, but...you're not in the band..."

Backstage, the post-show interview was a complete disaster. Dave tried to take control of the spotlight again. While Eddy Van Halen tried to talk about his plans after undergoing hip surgery, Dave butted in, saying, "No one wants to hear about your fing hip. Tonight is about me." At that point, Eddy totally blew up at Dave: "NOBODY talks to me like that!! Do you understand?!! If you ever talk like that to me again--" he threatened to kick Roth hard enough to send his testicles into his chest cavity.

So once again, David Lee Roth sabotaged his career, not realizing that he could definitely used the exposure of being with his old bandmates. The possibility of Roth returning was perhaps still in the talking stage, but with Dave acting like he was still in control of the band, he shot the whole chance straight into hell's restroom. He simply did not understand the reasons why he was fired in the first place. Fans were not going to be pleased at the shortened "reunion".

And speaking of Stevie Wonder, let me go back to 1995 for a minute to visit Stevie's last release of hte twentieth century, ConversationPeace.



ConversationPeace contained the song "For Your Love" - not the Yardbirds song of the same name - that was all over the radio in the mid-nineties, at least on stations that played Stevie's music in their formats. Hey AOR -

"For Your Love" was admittedly a slight song, but it was a Stevie Wonder song, and to quote a line from the gone (BUT NOT FORGOTTEN!) sitcom "I'm WIth Her," a little Stevie goes a long way.

ConversationPeace would have to go a long way, as Wonder would not release another album for another decade.

Red face Van Halen vs. David Lee Roth

Expectations were riding rather high for a Van Halen-David Lee Roth reunion, but once it was not happening, fans were furious with Eddie Van Halen. They felt the problem lie with him rather than Dave. Some faithful followers never got to see genuine article back in the late 70's/early 80's, back when the band was in top full-party form, and now they never would. Sure Dave could be a jerk, a ham, but he was brilliant at it, he was the consummate showman.
But Eddie didn't see it that way. To replay past glories was truly ripping off fans, he said, and "You don't know how much money was thrown at us to do a reunion tour with Roth--probably more than the gross national product of East and West Germany put together. If anyone saw him in Las Vegas, I'm sorry, but the thrill is gone."

What Eddie was refering to was Roth's stint as a performer in Las Vegas, yukking it up and doing what many thought he'd be a natural at doing, a rock and roll song and dance show with show tunes and pop standards (Think full-scale version of "Just a Gigolo"), etc. Roth sent out a letter apologizing for being in denial about the nature of his resumed working relationship with Eddie on the Best Of songs, the band hinted that the "reunion" was only tentative, but Roth let himself believe that there would be more to it than that. It was Eddie, he said, who put a complete stop at the reunion.

Angry fans flooded the internet with hostile messages toward Eddie Van Halen, calling him a "communist", among other things, while others resigned both as fan club presidents and as members. When Roth appeared at the primiers of Howard Stern's film biopic "Private Parts", fans there all began to chant, "Eddie Sucks!"

And if no further Van Halen-Roth reunion tour was in the works, fans would have to be content with who Eddie chose to replace Sammy Hagar. It was the biggest, baddest, greatest singer to fill Diamond Dave's backless leather trousers, or Little Red Rocker Sammy's sweaty headband...

It was........

Cool Def Leppard--Slang

In 1996, Def Leppard released Slang, an album that was a radical departure from almost everything they had ever done. The album had more of an "urban" and grungier feel, as the band had moved away from their metal roots and into a more "alternative" sound. It was their most 90's-sounding album, but not all fans were happy with the direction of their music. But guitarist Phil Collen felt very comfortable with the band's new sound, the one big relief about the 90's was that he did not have to concentrate on trying to be the next Yngwie Malmsteen (who?? ), he was just happy to be playing songs instead of faster-than-fast guitar exercises. Of course with the accommodations the band had to make with their sound (Rick Allen's electronic drum kit, etc.), plus the success of the atypical rock album Hysteria, it was not surprising that Def Leppard was going in this direction after all. Many top rock acts of the 80's were having to readjust their sound to the new trends in music, much to the chagrin of many older fans.

Work It Out

Day and night black and white
You take it all for granted
I'm the one who turns you on

When you don't know where you belong
And nothin' seems to matter
I'm the one who's holding on

It's alright to be wrong
All we need's a little time
But nothing here can last that long

We show the world a brand new face
It's taken us all this time
All this time
All of this doubt
We get to work it out
All of this doubt
We get to work it out

Yesterday lost your way
Still looking for an answer
I'm the one who holds the key

When you don't know where you belong
And nothing seems to matter
I'll unlock this mystery

All of this doubt
Day and night - Black and White
Take it all for granted
We get to work it out
I'm the one who turns you on
Turns you on - Turns you on
All of this doubt

When you don't know where you belong
And nothin' seems to matter
We get to work it out
I'm the one who's holdin' on
Holdin' on - Holdin' on
