Fair Warning is the fourth studio album by American rock band Van Halen. The album was listed by Esquire as one of the 75 Albums Every Man Should Own.
Consequently, Fair Warning was a major departure from the playfulness of Women and Children First. Before work began in the winter of early 1981, Roth had spent a few royalty checks for a glamorous jungle adventure to Haiti and had been punched with an emaciated paw in his conscience. Oozing with menace, Fair Warning was the closest Van Halen ever came to a thematic concept album, a suite of songs about life in the ruts. The opening cut, Mean Street, became an anthem. Beginning with Eddie’s fast-motion slapping pattern on high and low E strings, a technique he adapted from funk bass, the track stepped into skid-row territory instead of strolling down Main Street.
The real Van Halen III, Women and Children First, is the third studio album by Van Halen, released on March 26, 1980. Never-before-seen lyric sheets! We have unearthed David Lee Roth’s handwritten lyrics for every song on the album. It was just backwards to the way I would have had it. I just don’t see how he played it that way, but he did. I’ve been to a few Van Halen shows and I put on Ed’s guitar and it’s just the complete opposite of the way I set up mine. He’d have the strings about a mile off the fret board. Most Van Halen fans first saw a black-and-white image of this Ibanez Destroyer on the cover of 1980’s Women and Children First.
