I play guitar, so I absolutely LOVE Van Halen. Top 5 band for me, for sure. (I'm talking Roth here). Would absolutely get a VH machine (DLR era of course).
If you're a fan, read Van Halen Rising by a buddy of mine, Greg Renoff. Great read: https://amzn.to/2RtIR4a
I like some Def Leppard too, but it's really cheesy, even compared to VH.
