The Final List:

How cool is Joel anyway?
He has got to be the best Brother-in-Law ever.

I had the excellent fortune of hanging out with him for a while on Friday Night. He and his bride joined me, Sistra and Chewbekkah in a vigorous debate of the Bulletproof list. There were tremendous ideas exchanged. Final Verdict -- There really is a ton of great music from the 80's. But you already knew that.

Things got rally excited when we started talking about Rush and Van Halen. Joel remembers in great detail the Van Halen 1984 tour, which we both saw (The most visceral memory being David Lee Roth wearing a large foam Cowboy hat).

He's the Hair Metal Ying to Michy's Dead Or Alive Yang.

Belatedly: Neil Finn couldn't beat up shit. Have you seen him? He is a tiny, tiny man of tiny-osity.
