Episode 371 – Spin The Book – Van Halen’s 5150 Part One

This week not only have Eric Senich (Booked on Rock Podcast and writer at the Van Halen News Desk) but we also have CoreyGeek from the Geekspin Podcast. This week we talk Van Halen’s 5150.

We all share our first listening experiences with the album, oversaturation, T-Shirt bands, Wolfgang Van Halen, Valerie, the late great band Mitoma, parachute pants, wings and rings, that damn Van Halen mousepad. And of course, we begin our song by song analysis of the first three songs of 5150: Good Enough, Why Can’t This Be Love, and Get Up.

Don’t worry folks, in one more week, you get to hear the conclusion of the album analysis and the final tally of just which are the best songs on the album.

Sean McGinity

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.

Todd McGinity

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.
