Episode 393 – Somebody Said Fair Warning, Lord Strike That Poor Boy Down

Eric Senich from the Van Halen News Desk and Booked On Rock is back. We talk pets, pet insurance, Sammy working with ghosts, Eric’s dad, Heard/Depp, Sammy and the Circle, the band Bonham, and on to the main event: Van Halen’s Fair Warning! Where do we stand on the album? Just where did that album cover come from? We break this album completely down and rate each track. What context was there when this was released and why it didn’t sell as well when originally released? What does it have to do with Blondie’s Rapture? And just what is the cat’s ass? Let’s break down the album, song by song!

Part One gets us through Side A of Fair Warning. Be back next week for Side B. In the meantime, also check out Eric Senich at two of his homes:

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.
