Van Halen
October, 1977
Six Flags Magic Mountain Showcase Amphitheater
Valencia, CA

This was about six months before first album came out. I worked at the park at the time and had no clue who they were. I was just went to the show after work because I had nothing better to do.

Needless to say, I was floored and went to school on Monday raving about this new band.

This had tremendous impact on my life. I would not see the band again until DLR toured with them in 2008.
