For a long time, when I was very young, I went to go see arena rock bands. I was 16, and it was all I could get in to see, legally. And I saw Led Zeppelin and Ted Nugent and Van Halen and all that.

Few bands in hard rock history have been so adept at balancing the awesome and trivial as Van Halen in their prime.
