Retro Van Halen "95

Sammy has released a one minute video of "Aftershock" recorded during the 1995 "Balance" tour...

Sammy says....   
Well, I nearly totally forgot about this song. It was a rough time in the band. I had just gone through a three-year, brutal divorce, and obviously wasn't concerned about my stage outfit hahaha!!! those are actually red Rocker overalls, a prototype. Thank God I never made them hahaha. That’s a bad ass track we will be adding to the Circle setlist. As good as we played on the Balance Tour, there was a darkness that was coming into the band - we weren't having the fun we used to have and you could feel the end of Van Hagar era was coming on this tour. Looking back now, Alex was in the neck brace and Ed was pre-hip surgery & in a lot of pain. Makes me wish we could go back and have taken that whole year off. Makes you wonder what could've been

Tannrr says === In the 90's... grunge rock & bands like Guns N' Roses & Metallica & Pearl Jam & Soundgarden... who wore no glam... and came out on stage with their street cloths...rocked the rock world!!!
And for all of us 80's rockers into Glam Rock ... We got married ... Had kids... Got full time jobs... Had house & Car payments... and had no time for money 4 glam rock & glam rock concerts...
But the young kids grabbed it ... love it ... and it changed rock n roll .

Betty Eadie and Jessie Sawyer detail their spiritual experiences after they both say they died while undergoing surgeries. Both women said they left their bodies and entered another realm and while their experiences differ, there are some similarities: they were both at extreme peace, remember seeing how the lives of their close family members would pan out without them and both said they reluctantly came back to their bodies.
