C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Van Halen

I found the simple life ain't so simple

This week marks the 40th anniversary of the release of the first Van Halen album.

That means 39 years and a few months ago, every other kid in my neighborhood who owned a guitar practiced learning the "Eruption" solo for at least a week before giving up.

What are you listening to tonight?
