Backstory.

This is my actual intro to Van Halen. I didn’t know about no Eruption. Didn’t know he went into labor and gave birth to fretboard tapping. Didn’t know that was his brother. Didn’t know the whole soloing on Michael Jackson song. I just knew that this song rocked! How can you not be taken over by that keyboard melody! And I thought it was cool that he switched from guitar to keyboard as if he was switching hands while jerking off. I kid of course. I really did think he was the coolest. Made me want to learn guitar and switch to keyboards in the middle of a song too.

Let me not come between you and some jumpin.’
