GROUP: Van Halen
ALBUM: “1984” (Released 1984)
Let’s “jump” back to the ’80s once again, to the time of big hair and big guitars. MTV was in its music video heyday (“The Jersey Shore” was thankfully still decades away) and we all listened to rock music blasting from our boomboxes, on cassette tapes via our Walkmen or on that new crazy format called CDs.
The airwaves were alive with the songs from Def Leppard, The Scorpions, AC/DC, Bon Jovi, Queen, U2, Journey… and one of the greatest rock bands ever- Van Halen.
Eddie Van Halen wielded the guitar like a master and was supported by Alex Van Halen on drums, Michael Anthony on bass and showman David Lee Roth provided the vocals.
