On this day:
At 1st April of 1985, after months of squabbling, David Lee Roth leaves Van Halen to begin a solo career.

In the eyes of countless hard rock fans, David Lee Roth is the prototypical frontman. With a flamboyant, larger than life stage presence and a party-hearty surfer dude persona (not to mention his acrobatic leaps, long mane of blond hair, and skintight spandex outfits), Roth was an integral part of Van Halen's meteoric rise to global dominance from 1978 through 1984. Born on October 10, 1954 in Bloomington, Indiana, Roth was introduced to music at an early age, via his father's affinity for Al Jolson, Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, and Louis Prima. 

By the dawn of his teenage years, his family had relocated to California, and by the early '70s, Roth had become a major rock fan (Led Zeppelin, Black Oak Arkansas, Grand Funk, ZZ Top, Alice Cooper, etc.). Roth was soon singing in local bands, including the Red Ball Jets, who would play shows along with another up-and-coming rock band from Pasadena, California - Mammoth. 

The members of Mammoth, including brothers Eddie and Alex Van Halen on guitar and drums, respectively, would often borrow Roth's PA system for their gigs, and a friendship was struck up. Soon after, Roth was asked to join forces with the Van Halen brothers, who had enlisted a new bassist as well, Michael Anthony. The new quartet decided on a name change by the mid-'70s as they played the Sunset Strip, Van Halen (reportedly Roth's idea). 

By 1977, the quartet was signed to Warner Bros., and 1978 saw the release of their landmark self-titled debut, one of rock's all-time great recordings. Mixing heavy metal riffs with punk's fury, Van Halen were onto a whole new sound, which resulted in the band taking the world by storm. The band issued a string of classic mega-selling albums (1979's 'Van Halen II', 1980's 'Women and Children First', 1981's 'Fair Warning', 1982's 'Diver Down', and two years later, '1984'), while becoming a major arena-headlining concert draw in the process. 

Just as Van Halen had hit their peak and appeared they could do no wrong, Roth issued a four-track solo EP in 1985, 'Crazy from the Heat', with rumors swirling that the bandmembers were bickering behind the scenes and that the singer was going to make a major motion picture. Still, it was a shock to rock fans everywhere when Roth left Van Halen in that same year (Van Halen would soldier on with Sammy Hagar filling Roth's spot), leading to a war of words in the press.

When his plans for the movie proved to be a bust, Roth immediately formed a top-notch solo band, consisting of ex-Talas bassist Billy Sheehan (often called "the Eddie Van Halen of bass"), ex-Frank Zappa guitarist Steve Vai, and ex-Maynard Ferguson drummer Gregg Bissonette. In 1986, Roth issued his first full-length solo effort, 'Eat 'Em and Smile', which was another hit and gave way to another sold-out tour. 

Roth had also become a master of creating hilarious and highly original music videos (featuring a wide assortment of wacky characters), especially Van Halen's "Hot for Teacher" and Roth's solo clips "California Girls," "Just a Gigolo," "Yankee Rose," and "Goin' Crazy." But while Roth's new solo band seemed to be on the way to a very promising future, the lineup began to splinter with each subsequent release (1988's 'Skyscraper', 1991's 'A Little Ain't Enough'), until Roth was the only remaining member. With interest waning, Roth attempted to branch out musically on his experimental 1994 release, 'Your Filthy Little Mouth' (produced by Nile Rodgers), but it was met with a cool reception, as was his attempt to break into the Vegas circuit around the same time. 

By 1996, Van Halen had parted ways with Hagar, leading to an onslaught of rumors that a Roth/Van Halen reunion was in the works. The rumor appeared to become reality on September 4, 1996, when Van Halen and Roth appeared together at the MTV Video Music Awards in New York to present an award.

Despite the fact that they had recorded several new songs the previous summer (two of which would appear on their forthcoming Best Of: Vol. 1 collection), the reunion was short-lived, Eddie and Roth got into a near fistfight backstage on the night of the awards show, as relations soured once again when it became known that Van Halen tricked Roth into thinking that he was back in the band (meanwhile, they had secretly hired ex-Extreme singer Gary Cherone a few months prior). 

Undeterred, Roth penned a tell-all biography, 1997's 'Crazy from the Heat', and issued his best solo album in years, 1998's back-to-basics DLR Band. When Cherone was dismissed from Van Halen in 1999 after only a single album ( Van Halen III), rumors began swirling once again about a possible Roth/Van Halen reunion.

With both camps keeping things very hush-hush, Roth finally broke the silence in April of 2001, issuing a statement on his website that he and his former Van Halen bandmates had indeed regrouped the previous year in the recording studio, but that he hadn't heard back from them in months. Barely a week later, Eddie Van Halen went public with the fact that he was diagnosed with cancer; in May of 2002 he reported on his website that his cancer treatments had been successful and he had "just gotten a 100 percent clean bill of health, from head to toe." 

Meanwhile, the good news from Eddie Van Halen did not apparently coincide with a return of Roth to the Van Halen fold, as the singer's 'Diamond Dave', a 14-track collection of mostly covers that echoed the 1982 Van Halen classic 'Diver Down', was released in 2003. In 2005, Roth took over FM "Shock Jock" duties for the satellite radio-bound Howard Stern, and the following year he gathered friends for the tongue-in-cheek Strummin with the Devil: The Southern Side of Van Halen.

After more than two decades apart, Roth re-joined Van Halen in 2006 for a North American tour that became the highest grossing in the band's history and one of the highest grossing of that year. In 2012, Roth and Van Halen released the critically successful comeback album, 'A Different Kind of Truth.'

Small Big changes on GNOME 3.18!

+Fedora Project and +Matthias Clasen updated the change set for Fedora 23 and GNOME on Wayland status.

GNOME on Wayland Session is GONE, and there is a new session GNOME on X11 ..simply because GNOME is now defaults to Wayland!

That pretty much means that GNOME 3.18 should be working "perfect" on Wayland, at least with open drivers, where there is a fallback to X11 for no supported hardware/drivers.

Please DO read the changes:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/WaylandByDefault

--PS. That's an older screenshot from GDM 3.14, Gimpshoped, coz embarrassing enough I couldn't print screen GDM on 316 :/

Today it was the first time I got "pissed" with ArchLinux!? I was trying to login on GNOME and I was keep getting a "gnome-session was killed by signal 11" or something, which it wasn't very "useful" message to be honest :)

Because my Gnome-Session starts ...lots of things ..I removed them, then tried relog.. SIGNAL 11

Then I removed Plama, elementary and some more sessions ..tried relog.. SIGNAL 11

I disabled NVIDIA ..tried relog .. SIGNAL 11

Long story short, the crashing was because I had removed Breeze cursor theme, when I had it still active on GSettings.. Imagine that..

Anyway, to avoid all this hassle for such simple things, just go to Gnome Control Center, make a new user, something like Foo, Test, Empty, and when you have any weird behavior under GNOME, login and test with a "fresh" user. Several bugs might have been caused of some settings!

I don't know if this is Arch or GNOME bug (I suppose the second), but since GNOME doesn't ship anything "running" ..you know, the "blame" goes to distro ..and btw GNOME 3.16 is still on Arch testing!

Happy birthday to Mr. Angus Young,
60 years completed today.

Most rock fans would agree that AC/DC guitarist Angus Young is one of the genre's most energetic and entertaining performers. It's impossible to imagine an AC/DC show without Young bobbing his head up and down in time to the music, playing amped up Chuck Berry licks on his Gibson SG guitar, shirtless and drenched in sweat. And in addition to his manic stage persona, he's one of the best (and underrated) rock guitarists of all time. 

Born on March 31, 1955 in Glasgow, Scotland, Angus Young and his family moved to Australia in the '60s, just as the British Invasion was sweeping the rock & roll world. Young's older brother, George, found fame as a member of the Easybeats, scoring a worldwide smash, "Friday on My Mind" in 1966. Inspired by their older brother's success, Angus and another brother, Malcolm, began learning guitar and became fascinated by such bluesman as Muddy Waters, the aforementioned Berry, and such Brit-rockers as the Rolling Stones and the Who. 

The brothers formed their first band together in the early '70s, taking the name AC/DC from their sister's sewing machine. Young also stumbled across a gimmick that would remain his trademark to this day, band rehearsals were right after school, so he would practice in his "school boy uniform" (which consisted of a cap, tie, a white shirt, jacket, and shorts). The look became such a hit that Young wore the outfit on stage. He also began playing a Gibson SG, the only guitar model he would play throughout his career. 

Reportedly, his reckless stage presence came to be after Young had to cover up tripping over something on-stage, and the audience thought it was part of the show. The Young brothers turned a deaf ear to popular musical trends of the early '70s (disco, prog rock, etc.), and bashed out raw and simple three-chord rock, predating punk rock by a few years. And with the addition of singer Bon Scott, AC/DC became a sensation in their native Australia, soon signing a worldwide record deal with Atlantic Records. 

While AC/DC never strayed far from their original musical path, record and ticket sales continued to increase with each successive album and tour. With massive global success beckoning, AC/DC overcame a career-threatening tragedy in 1980 when Bon Scott died from alcohol poisoning.

But his replacement, Brian Johnson, fit in perfectly, as the group immediately issued their biggest hit of their entire career, the 1980 classic album "Back in Black." And with nearly all rock guitarists copying Eddie Van Halen and his kamikaze guitar pyrotechnics throughout the '80s, Young admirably stuck to his economical and tasty playing style, influencing such future bands as Guns N' Roses, Jackyl, Buckcherry, and Nashville Pussy.
