Episode 337 – Taking a Deep Dive With Van Halen

Eric Senich from Booked On Rock and the Van Halen News Desk is back! This time we are doing something special with an episode focused on that “covers album” Van Halen called Diver Down. We break it down from Album Cover and do a track by track breakdown, with some history on each track.

(0:52) Before we got started though, we had a good chat about Mammoth WVH, how Epiphany sounds very similar to our old band Dome, and we give some thanks to some great Podcasts we all follow, Shout It Out Loudcast and Pod of Thunder.

(8:44) Cover and look at some other Van Halen covers.
(14:48) Track 1 Where Have All The Good Times Gone
(18:13) Track 2 Hang Em High
(21:35) Track 3 Cathedral
(27:48) Track 4 Secrets
(30:19) Track 5 Intruder
(33:02) Track 6 (Oh) Pretty Woman

Hi, I am Sean "SeanGeek" McGinity. And I am a geek. For me, the definition of the word geek comes from liking something so much, that I deep dive into it. Not just consuming it... but becoming it. I "geek out". Everything started with comics. I read them and studied them with a fine eye, and then started making my own. Since then, I have "geeked out" on movies (Star Wars The Evil WIthin, Hurt), music writing, recording, and performing (The Classic Embers and Dome), writing (the Symka comic and the upcoming Intuitives novel), and now... this Podcast.

Hey guys, SeanGeek here. Just to be clear, this is me geeking out on Todd "FastFretFingers" McGinity here. Todd is the GOAT. My brother is an established musician, mastering the Fretboard with a blistering discipline. If there was a guitar style, tone, pitch... Todd would find a way to replicate it. From his early days mastering Van Halen and Rush, his musical palate has expanded with forays into classical and flamenco, hard rock, blues and pop. From live performances to learning the recording process, when it comes to music, he has done it all.
