It's good to see EVH happy, healthy & playing music.

I've heard & read many people commenting negatively on this new tune. It seems like some of them expect anything new by VH with DLR to sound like it's 1978 all over again. But, it's not. :) It's never going to be 1978 again.

Geez, I remember when Jump came out. There was a huge uproar of fans that hated it! And that's their perogative. But, it was just EVH playing the same happy-go-lucky major triad riffs he'd always done. Just on synth instead of guitar. Even back in 1984, some VH fans were wishing it was 1978 again.

The vid looks like they are having fun playing music together again. I'll call that a victory.
