Van Halen’s fourth album, “Fair Waring,” released on this date 1981. This is one album that I have never grown tired of…If I had only one CD to take on a deserted island…this would be it!
Eddie’s guitar tone and creativeness were at peak levels! The album was also one of the bands heaviest and wrongfully, IMO, their worst seller.
The guitar work on this album to me as a kid arguably changed my life…switched my dreams from baseball player to guitarist….
