After 6-year Gap, Van Halen Is Outta Sync
Jim Farber of the New York Daily News was on hand as Van Halen performed live in concert at the Continental Arena in East Rutherford, New Jersey on Tuesday (June 22). Farber writes, “The performance revealed a group as disjointed musically as they’ve ever been personally. While the foursome certainly seemed to give their all, they never coalesced as a band. Hagar was in horrible voice, and the sound system pummeled much of the sound to mulch. While there were no dancing trolls or exploding drummers, there was something a wee bit Spinal Tappish about the whole thing.” The full article at nydailynews.com has since been removed or relocated.
