The Van Halen News Desk has posted “All Fired Up,” written and performed by Eddie Van Halen in 1983. This track is part of the musical score from the movie The Wild Life. Eddie wrote the entire musical score for the movie, playing guitar along with his electronic drum machine.
The director wanted a piece of music that would play in the background of a crazy, rowdy house party. THIS is what Eddie gave him. In the movie, viewers can hear only sections of the track, obscured by the loud party. Now, for the first time, VH fans can hear the full unedited 6:10 track!
Some of what Eddie’s playing here became parts of “A.F.U.(Naturally Wired)” on OU812.
One Pearl Jam fan got more than just a great show during the band's stop in Spokane, Washington - he also got a new hairdo.
YouTube footage of the Saturday night gig shows an unnamed concertgoer with thigh-length dreadlocks on stage with Eddie Vedder and the guys. Apparently he had promised to shave his head if the band played the Yield track "Brain of J," and the band agreed.
After they let him rock out to the song on stage and swing his dreads one last time, Vedder grabbed a pair of clippers and gave him a trim.
Well, this is a dude cut from the same cloth I am!
Apparently the guy's landlord wouldn't refund his security deposit so he...uh...gave the landlord something to remember him by!
