STEVE THE PRODUCER

Another morning was kicked off by our new pup LuLu poo poo’ing on the bed…yup 2 days in a row…3 times in 4 days. Today’s was great…she actually tried to tell us that she needed to poop as she started whining at about 2:30 am. I was trying to get the sleep out of my eyes (my usual wake up is at 3 am), and take her out when all of a sudden she was a turd factory on the bed…drop drop drop drop…4 “Turd-les” as I like to call em. I give her props that she is at least alerting us to it being poop time, but she needs to give us a little more warning! Meanwhile Lucy is just completely confused by our new addition to the family.

Speaking of dogs, big thanks to Kevin Smith for calling in this morning. Kevin was telling us that his dog Scully is sadly close to leaving this world…ugh that sucks! Kevin has been posting about how hard this is on his Twitter page, (@ThatKevinSmith)…here is one Tweet:

I don't think I've ever been this f****** heartbroken in my life. And I made COP OUT and JERSEY GIRL. I am going to miss Scully so much...

Kevin was on to promote something cool he is doing on Thursday February 7th: Live From Behind Featuring “Jay and Silent Bob Get Old”, a one-night-only in-theater event at 6:30 p.m. PT. It’s a special three-hour event that will begin with Smith and Jason “Jay” Mewes, hosting their podcast, “Jay and Silent Bob Get Old.” The evening will then switch gears as Smith takes the stage during a live interactive, fan-generated Q&A with theater audiences across the country. Here are the local theaters that will show this event: AMC Kent Station, Regal Auburn Stadium 17, Century 16 Theaters in Federal Way, Bella Botega Theater in Redmond, Regal Thorton Place – Northgate, Century Olympia Theaters

Today we premiered the new Van Halen song “Tattoo”…you can hear it here:

Here are my thoughts...hated it the first time, second time started digging it, and by the third time I was enjoying the song. I didn’t expect much from them since they are past the creative fire I would think, so the fact that there are parts of the song I like, I consider it a victory. I dug Eddies guitar work, Dave’s voice sounds great still, Alex’s drumming is great…my only issue is the “low” voice stuff that Dave does on the second verse, and that he harmonizes with on the pre-chorus…I HATE the low voice, and it confirmed one thing: the band is missing their bassist Michael Anthony. Eddie’s son Wolfgang is their bassist, and he plays the bass just fine…but where they miss Michael is on the backing vocals. Michael did all those high note harmonies back in the day, and they are missed…badly…on this new song. Get him back in the band & re-record it! Do it right VH…do it right!!!!!

As for what the Rock-A-Holics thought of the song…let’s just say it was a polarizing song, as we witness the Good, the Bad, and the UGLY! Here are some of the texts regarding “Tattoo” by Van Halen…we’ll start with the “Good”:

Eddies guitar work is top notch

Big rock sound and dave still has the pipes, its alright.

Not a bad tune, classic vh sound. Fun to listen to. -Dennis in Kingsgate

I'm on the fence so far with "Tattoo", maybe you need to play it every half hour so I can listen to it more and get used to hearing them again...

Its better than that friday song!

Worst lyrics ever. Great drums and guitar

That was the death of Van Halen

At first listen they should have stayed mad at each other.

Have to say I like most van halen. But not a fan of the new song. Sounds jumbled together and not really thought through lyrically. Not much energy.

I vomited in my mouth a little

Song sucks they need to tour the reitrement home circuit. Justin in tacoma

VH it was flat, slow and steady. No energy.

This song sucks. Well at least the lyrics do.

Todays listeners may be a fan of easy lyrics, but tattoo...... really

It sucked. Just like you guys.
