‘We try our best, to pick the best of the best,” sez Guy Ford, Director of Legislative Affairs for Ohio Housing Finance Agency, at Knowlton Place grand-opening festivities in Northside, developed, owned and operated by ERS (Episcopal Retirement Services). ‘And this, is obviously one of those types of communities, that we’re gonna see here today.’

#tbt: did Van Halen breakup go down in Cincinnati?

Posted in #TBT with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on 10/15/2015 by @CincinnatiPR

According to The Rolling Stone ….

Van Halen were the biggest hard-rock band on the planet in March 1984; the hit single “Jump” was in heavy rotation on MTV, and their sixth studio album, 1984, was on track to sell 17 million copies. Eddie Van Halen and David Lee Roth exchanged their usual ribbing when Rolling Stone writer Debby Miller caught up with them at a Cincinnati tour stop. “I‘m a musician, Dave’s a rock star,” said Van Halen, who would bring studio equipment on the road, and told a story about climbing into the closet of his hotel room at night to hum song ideas into a tape recorder. (He also talked about his uneasiness at being a guitar idol: “I am so much geekier than any of those kids dreaming about being me.”) Roth, for his part, belittled Eddie’s recent star cameo on Michael Jackson’s “Beat It.” (“He went in and played the same f****** solo he’s been playing in this band for 10 years. Big deal!”) Less than a year later, Roth was out of the band, replaced by singer Sammy Hagar.

Highlights:

“On a bright blue afternoon, just the sort of day that prompted Alexis de Tocqueville in 1831 to describe this part of the Ohio River as ‘one of the most magnificent valleys in which man has made his stay,’ the full sweep of Cincinnati’s new development, clearly designed as the city’s gateway, comes into full view.”

“The shoreline of this Ohio River city, which in the 19th Century hummed with 30 steamboat visits a day but faded into the 20th as pollution and industrial disinvestment pushed people and businesses inland, is emerging again as a hub of civic and economic vitality.”

“Cincinnati is experiencing a strong revival in urban core business and residential growth, much of it prompted by development along a scenic river that state and federal water quality data show is cleaner and more ecologically vital.”

“The Mets still suck.”
