Wasn't "Once" the fourth single? I know it was at least the fourth video (Internet-only), directed by David Bertinelli.

Unrelated question[edit]

This might be a seemingly unrelated question, but does anyone know where the cover art is from? I've seen random footage of a similar man being hit with a cannonball, but I've never been able to find out who, when, or why he was hit with a cannonball. I'm assuming it was a circus feat, or if I can rely on The Simpsons, it might have been entertainment during some rock concert. ArgentiumOutlaw 14:48, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

All I know is that Alex Van Halen supposedly found it funny, so he picked it as their album cover. It's black and white (and I've seen a video clip of it on tv before), so it's probably an old circus thing (I guess?). Armslurp 20:36, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

EVH lead vocals[edit]

"How Many Say I", was an unusual acoustic piano ballad featuring guitarist Eddie Van Halen (mostly) on lead vocals. Eddie had previously only sung lead on "Crossing Over"

What about EVH's 'lead' vocals on "Me Wise Magic" and "Humans Being" off Best Of: Volume I? It was released before Van Halen III.

You mean where he sings "Humans ... humans being" in the background while waiting for Sammy to jump in ("That's what makes us ...")? That would count as background vocals, IMO. But on "How Many Say I", he sings almost the entire thing, including the chorus. I dunno what part of "Me Wise Magic" you are referring to. Armslurp 19:06, 5 April 2007 (UTC)


Who is this Matthew Bruck, supposedly contributing guitar to the album? What is the source for this? Mangobanan 22:59, 13 May 2007 (UTC)

Wasn't he Eddie's guitar tech?? Armslurp 22:54, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Track Listing[edit]

Stated as: all songs by Anthony, Hagar, Roth, Van Halen and Van Halen

Can anyone with the liner notes verify whether Hagar or Roth had any involvement with any of the songs?

Regarding track times...[edit]

The time for the tracks are like 10-15 sec longer than the album has, is there a reason for this? Compare this to the times on the page.
