Today, February 10 is the 40th anniversary of Van Halen’s first album. Yes. 4.0. Forty. FORTY! So, in honor of this landmark anniversary of the album that introduced the world to the wizardry that is Edward Van Halen, I’m offering the official video of the song that starts the whole album off. The first sounds you’d get from the album as it starts. Dear Reader, I give you:
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
Shred on, Eddie!
“You know I… I found the simple life ain’t so simple. When I jumped out, on that road. I got no love, no love you’d call real. Ain’t got nobody, waitin’ at home. Runnin’ with the devil.” – “Runnin’ With the Devil” (Van Halen/Van Halen/Roth/Anthony)
