Right Here Right Now (1993)

EW's GRADE
C

Details Lead Performance: Van Halen

Besides Edward Van Halen's usual dazzling guitar somersaults, the most interesting thing about this double live album, Right Here Right Now, is Sammy Hagar's stage patter, as the singer conclusively proves himself incapable of uttering even the simplest declarative sentence without an expletive-laced reference to getting high, getting laid, or, preferably, both. ''Worrying about tomorrow is a bunch of s---,'' yells Hagar at one point, '''Cause tomorrow may not never come. F--- tomorrow!'' Now I know why they let David Lee Roth go: They wanted a philosopher in the band. C
