2009 le Clos du Caillou Vieilles Vignes – Cotes du Rhone
Red Rhone Wine from the French Rhone Valley and “Women and Children First” by Van Halen!
Rock and Roll Royalty meet a Royal Rhone Valley Wine. Yes Indeed! Celebrating the triumphant return of a band that the universe has been missing for many years! Welcome back Diamond Dave and welcome back Van Halen! “A Different Kind of Truth” will be getting a pairing from us as soon as the vinyl copies are delivered! 😉
“Women and Children First” This is the first Van Halen album to feature all original band compositions. The opening track, “And the Cradle Will Rock…”, begins with what sounds like a guitar, but is, in fact, a phase shifter-effected Wurlitzer electric piano played through Van Halen’s 1960’s model 100-watt Marshall Plexi amplifier.
In a Simple Rhyme we set sail for the Rhone Valley!
