Van Halen was a rock band formed in California in 1972.

The band consisted of Eddie Van Halen, his brother Alex and Halen (drummer), vocalist David Lee Roth, and bassist/vocalist Michael Antony. Toth left the band in 1985 and was replaced by Sammy Hagar, formerly of Montrose. In 2001 Eddie was diagnosed with cancer and died of the disease in 2020
One thought on “Jamie’s Cryin’ by Van Halen”
I saw Van Halen their first tour in 1978, at the old Niagara Falls Convention Center that was torn down so that the Seneca Casino could be built in 2003. Black Sabbath opened. Ozzy Osborne was still with Black Sabbath in 78 & I remember we walked out … he was wasted & the rest of the band wasn’t much better. I suppose they thought Niagara Falls wasn’t much of a show. But Van Halen ROCKED. I really wasn’t impressed with David Lee Roth but OMG Eddie Van Halen was a FORCE … not only could he play guitar like a fucking god but he was so fucking beautiful … MAN! TO DIE FOR! I have always thought that he was Mozart come back to life.
