In my book, the quickest way for a gigantic band to prove that they’re still awesome – is to show up and play a show in a tiny venue. Just play a rock show where your biggest insecurities are exposed and your roundhouse kicks can knock drinks off the bar.
Mission accomplished. Every Van Halen fan (aside from 200 industry folks) missed out on something special last night in NYC. Luckily, nothing happens without someone recording it.
