    I want to apologize to the person whom I promised a review to, but I drink a lot and forget even more. Anyway, if they played as well as they did last night, you won't be disappointed! I have seen them multiple times, with all three lead singers. I saw them at their worst (04 Meth Eddie; @wife is a whore) and in 95 when Eddie was rock solid. 08 was decent if you caught them on the second leg after Eddie went to rehab for the 50th time. Anyway, these guys were tight and Roth actually nailed everything. Howie related because he has plugs like DLR, DLR took over his K-Rock gig, and he was a fag back in the early 80s for complaining about VH being loud in the hotel and not actually doing blow off a stripper's snatch like a real man.

    He takes after his mom. They can't find a death chamber that he fits in.

    Haha. Nah, I'm OK with the kid. He has better musical genes than acting genes, though! I can't blame him. If it wasn't for him, daddy would be dead by now:(

    Be nice, Whore. Kid is fucking rock solid. (bass wise) Trust me, I am the biggest Michael Anthony fan ever, but just to see DLR, AVH, and EVH play deep cuts again, I'm there. None of this would have happened without the fatty!

    How did DLR's voice hold up? He sounded awful when they performed for the Kimmel show.

    1000% better. I'm serious, it was awesome. He did everything justice. I am guessing that Wolf sat him down and told him how lucky he was to still have a career, and then told him to get his act together. he did 10 costume changes, but that's DLR!

    They pulled out some deep stuff... even Drop Dead Legs which they had never performed live before. So much fun!

    The local media can go fuck themselves; but, they are allowed an opinion! I agree that DLR went off on tangents while riffing, but he sounded a gazillion times better than he did in 08. (I didn't catch them in 2012) I don't know... it's subjective, but I left happy.

    I saw them in 2012 and they put on a much better show than G'nR (2011).

    Haha! If that's your band, eff the haters!
    I love Squeeze and saw them a bunch of times back in the day. I would still go see them in a heartbeat even tho they look like middle aged dads at this point but who cares? They still sound great!

    Yes! Always love your band! For real, though, the media are haters on this one. I haven't walked away smiling from a VH concert since 95. (I could have in 98, but it wasn't the same live with Cherone. Major props to him for being able to do both sides of the collection, though!)

    I am sorry, but you didn't see GnR. You saw Axl Rose and and the current (at the time) set of an ever revolving set of back up musicians. It disgusts me that Axl still uses the band's name.
